Player News - Clippers

Date: Team: Pos:

The Clippers lost at home to the Pacers on Sunday, in spite of Blake Griffin's team-high 24 points, 16 rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one steal.

L.A. coughed up a big early lead and Griffin was one of the only players who looked engaged on both ends tonight, as the Clippers committed 20 turnovers while getting out-scored in the paint 58-36. Blake drained 10-of-21 shots tonight and the Clippers' loss doesn't make his line any less appealing to fantasy owners.
Dec 5 - 12:23 AM

Chris Paul finished Sunday's game with 18 points, 11 assists, two rebounds, one steal, two 3-pointers and a season-high-tying five turnovers.

Doc Rivers has already started doling out precautionary rest days to his core players this season, including Blake Griffin and J.J. Redick, but so far CP3 hasn't been among them. The Clippers only play twice this week (Wednesday and Saturday), and their next back-to-back set is in late December, so there's no reason to expect a DNP-CD in the near future.
Dec 5 - 12:22 AM

J.J. Redick returned from a rest day on Sunday to score 15 points in 31 minutes, adding three rebounds and one assist.

Redick shot 5-of-15 from the field and all of his makes were 3-pointers in the first two quarters -- he didn't score after halftime. He's typically more efficient from the field, but otherwise this is exactly the type of line Redick's owners should expect.
Dec 5 - 12:21 AM

Raymond Felton went back to the bench vs. the Pacers, finishing a home loss with four points and two rebounds in 14 minutes of action.

Felton started Friday's game with J.J. Redick resting, so there was never any doubt that his role would contract tonight. It would require a few injuries for Felton to emerge as a standard-league option.
Dec 5 - 12:21 AM

Jamal Crawford scored 21 points on Friday vs. the Pelicans, shooting 9-of-15 from the field.

The 36-year-old sharpshooter picked up a few extra minutes with J.J. Redick resting and added one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers. He was averaging 11.4 points, 2.1 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.4 treys in 25.1 minutes per game prior to Friday, but he could have some sneaky value later on this season if the Clippers rest their studs often.
Dec 2 - 11:44 PM

Raymond Felton started in place of J.J. Redick (rest) on Friday vs. the Pelicans, scoring 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting with three assists, two rebounds, one steal, two triples and one turnovers in 26 minutes.

This was his first start of the season and he only plays 16.8 minutes per game off the bench, so there's no reason to own him unless you're the owner of Chris Paul in a very deep league.
Dec 2 - 11:40 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute matched his season-high with 15 points on Friday vs. the Pelicans, adding five rebounds with two steals, two blocks and three treys in 33 minutes.

Two LMAM blurbs in two days! He shot 5-of-9 from the field Friday and had five steals in his previous game, but you would have to be in a seriously deep league to consider adding him to your fantasy team. Leave him on the wire.
Dec 2 - 11:32 PM

Blake Griffin scored 27 points on 12-of-22 shooting in Friday's 114-96 win over the Pelicans.

This was the second night of a back-to-back set and he logged 34 minutes, so it's safe to say that he's healthy after a knee/calf scare last week. Griffin added four assists, two blocks and hit a triple to give him five 3-pointers on the season. He gets a matchup with the Pacers on Sunday.
Dec 2 - 11:26 PM

Raymond Felton is starting in place of J.J. Redick (rest) on Friday against the Pelicans.

The Pelicans start a small backcourt of Jrue Holiday and Tim Frazier, so Felton moving into the starting five makes some sense. With that said, Austin Rivers and Jamal Crawford should both see a small bump in minutes as well. There's no need to add Felton is most formats with Redick simply resting.
Dec 2 - 7:52 PM

J.J. Redick (rest) will not play vs. the Pelicans on Friday night.

It's scheduled rest on the back end of a back-to-back set. Redick has been on fire with a 23-point game on Thursday, but he is still 32 years old. For tonight, Wes Johnson should get in the rotation while Austin Rivers, Raymond Felton and Jamal Crawford all get boosts in playing time.
Dec 2 - 6:39 PM

Wes Johnson was a DNP-CD on Thursday.

After getting double-digit minutes for five straight, the Clippers bumped Johnson out of the rotation. If he stays out, they would mean more run for Paul Pierce, Austin Rivers and Raymond Felton.
Dec 2 - 3:22 PM

Austin Rivers played 23 minutes and hit 4-of-8 shots and two 3-pointers for 12 points, four rebounds and seven assists in Thursday's blowout win over the Cavs.

Rivers scored 15 in his previous game, but scored just seven and two points in his previous two games. He's fine to use in blowouts, but figuring out when those are coming is next to impossible, meaning he belongs on your waiver wire.
Dec 1 - 11:21 PM

J.J. Redick hit 9-of-13 shots and four 3-pointers for 23 points, two rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes on Thursday.

He sat the fourth quarter in a blowout and shot lights-out tonight, tying his career high with eight field goals made in the first half. He's been a bit up and down this season, as shooters will do, but is still averaging 16 points and 2.4 3-pointers on 49 percent shooting over his last five games.
Dec 1 - 11:14 PM

Chris Paul hit 5-of-11 shots and three 3-pointers on his way to 16 points, six rebounds, nine assists and a steal in just 25 minutes of Thursday's blowout win over the Cavaliers.

CP3 would have had a much bigger line, but the Clippers pretty much put this game away in the third quarter. Hopefully the Pelicans put up a better fight on Friday and keep Paul on the court for more minutes than the Cavs did. DeAndre Jordan also saw limited minutes due to the score and had nine points, 15 boards and a block.
Dec 1 - 11:11 PM

Blake Griffin hit just 4-of-14 shots and 5-of-8 free throws for 13 points, but also had five rebounds, 11 assists and a steal in just 31 minutes of Thursday's blowout 113-94 win over the Cavs.

Griffin was on pace to set a career high in assists, but didn't play much in the second half with the game well in hand. The 11 dimes ties his career high and his low scoring was simply a result of the blowout. He sat out his previous game to rest, so we all expected him to come out with a vengeance tonight. While that didn't happen, the assists were nice.
