Player News - Clippers

Date: Team: Pos:

J.J. Redick was invisible vs. the Warriors, scoring two points on 1-of-4 shooting with one steal and zero rebounds, assists, blocks or 3-pointers.

The Warriors' offensive fireworks tend to overshadow their defense, but they clamped down on the Clippers tonight and nobody had it worse than Redick. He couldn't get open on his usual curls and off screen plays, and the end result is a completely vacant fantasy line. Occasional duds are to be expected and he's still a hold -- he was posting top-100 value in 8-cat and 9-cat leagues before tonight.
Dec 8 - 1:43 AM

Blake Griffin had a rough night on Wednesday, going just 5-of-20 from the field for 12 points with nine boards, two assists, one steal and a season-high seven turnovers.

Blake took some tough shots tonight, but all credit is due to Draymond Green and the Warriors' defense. He finished 3-of-13 on shots outside of nine feet, and was hardly better within five feet of the rim at just 2-of-7. The Clippers are slumping lately but they'll get a prime opportunity to bounce back vs. the visiting Pelicans on Saturday.
Dec 8 - 1:42 AM

Jamal Crawford was a bright spot for the Clippers during Wednesday's lopsided home loss, as he came off the bench for 21 points (7-of-16 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs) with three 3-pointers and four assists.

Crawford led a few short-lived charges to cut into the Warriors' lead, but it was never enough. After a slow start to the season, J-Craw has slipped into his typical sixth-man role with nine straight games in double-digit scoring. As his fantasy owners are aware, points, 3-pointers and a dash of assists are about the extent of his value.
Dec 8 - 1:34 AM

Raymond Felton (personal) will miss Wednesday's game against the Warriors and is expected to miss additional time.

First and foremost, we hope everything is OK with Felton and his family. With Felton out of the lineup, the Clippers could bring Wes Johnson into the rotation or give a few more minutes to J.J. Redick, Austin Rivers and Jamal Crawford. Felton was playing 17.0 minutes per game this season.
Dec 7 - 9:07 PM

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.
