Date: Team: Pos:

Chris Paul had 23 points and seven assists while Blake Griffin added 15 points, seven boards and seven assists in Wednesday's 104-98 road win vs. the Pistons.

CP3 made 9-of-12 shots including three 3-pointers, and he and Griffin had it going most of the game vs. Detroit's defense. "This is our fourth year together ... we both realize our bread and butter used to be when I would attack downhill and [Griffin] was rolling to the basket," Paul said. "So we are trying to mix that in more." An emphasis on pick-and-rolls should only help the Clippers' All-Stars for fantasy purposes, but they're both elite options no matter which plays they're running.

J.J. Redick logged only 25 minutes on Wednesday, but still scored 10 points with one 3-pointer and four rebounds in a win in Detroit.

Redick got off to a lousy start this season but he's been solid in L.A.'s past four games, averaging 14.0 points, 3.0 threes and 2.0 rebounds in just 27.3 minutes per game. The starting SG job is his to lose and he's worth scooping off the waiver wire if you need scoring and 3-pointers.
Nov 26 - 10:53 PM

Jamal Crawford's hot streak continued on Wednesday as he came off the bench for a team-high 25 points on 8-of-16 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs.

Three of Crawford's makes came from downtown, and he chipped in three boards, four assists, two steals and a block to round out a phenomenal fantasy line. His 44.5 percent shooting would be the third-highest mark in his 15-year career, and he's paying off in a big way for fantasy owners who snagged him in the late rounds.
Nov 26 - 10:52 PM

Spencer Hawes shot just 1-of-5 from the field on Wednesday to finish a win vs. the Pistons with four points, eight rebounds, two assists and one steal in 18 minutes.

Hawes came in shooting a career-worst 41.1 percent from the field, including 30.3 percent from downtown. The per-minute efficiency he displayed last season has evaporated in a reserve role under Doc Rivers, and there's no use hanging onto him in fantasy leagues while he's struggling in limited minutes.
Nov 26 - 10:51 PM

Reggie Bullock was quiet in a fill-in start at SF for Matt Barnes (calf), scoring seven points with two rebounds and two steals in just 17 minutes of action.

He was similarly ineffective as a starter on Monday, scoring three points in 19 minutes, so fantasy owners can ignore him even if Barnes isn't ready to play in Houston on Friday.
Nov 26 - 10:51 PM

Reggie Bullock will start again on Wednesday with Matt Barnes (calf) out of commission.

He was lousy in just 19 minutes of action on Monday and doesn't have much fantasy appeal despite his starting gig. Unless you're in a very deep league, Bullock can be left to his own devices on the waiver wire.
Nov 26 - 6:17 PM

Chris Douglas-Roberts won't play on Wednesday as he recovers from an Achilles injury.

He's getting closer, but still not ready and it looks like he may not be back until December.
Nov 26 - 12:55 PM

Matt Barnes will miss Wednesday's game against the Pistons with his calf injury.

Reggie Bullock is running with the starters and should get the start, but there's not much to love about him in fantasyland. Barnes remains day-to-day.
Nov 26 - 12:54 PM

Chris Paul played one of his best games of the season in a 113-92 win over the Hornets, handing out a season-high 15 assists to go with 22 points, five rebounds, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

When CP3 checked out for the first time, the Clippers were extremely flat, so coach Doc Rivers put his star point guard back in the game much sooner than usual. Paul is playing some of the best ball of his career with 129 assists to go with just 19 turnovers.
Nov 24 - 11:30 PM

Blake Griffin dominated the Hornets during a 113-92 win on Monday, scoring 22 points with 16 boards, nine assists and two turnovers in 38 minutes.

The Hornets simply had no answer. Griffin was running a lot of successful pick-and-roll plays with Chris Paul while he continues to knock down jumpers. Griffin's rebounds have been down in a big way with an average of just 6.8 per game in his previous 12 outings, so hopefully this is a sign of things to come.
Nov 24 - 11:26 PM

Reggie Bullock made 1-of-3 from the field in his first career start against the Hornets on Monday with three points, two rebounds and one foul in 19 minutes.

All three shots were from beyond the arc and that's something the Clippers have been dying for from their small forward. Bullock just doesn't fit the Clippers scheme right now and it'll be tough for him to clear 20 minutes in a game even with Matt Barnes (calf) out.
Nov 24 - 11:22 PM

Jamal Crawford made 8-of-13 from the field for 21 points against the Hornets on Monday with three rebounds, one assist and five 3-pointers.

He had a highlight-reel play tonight when he dribbled the ball through Cody Zeller's legs. Crawford did start slow in this game, but he turned it on late to carry his team. He should get some extra minutes with Matt Barnes (calf) out for a couple more games.
Nov 24 - 11:20 PM

Reggie Bullock will start at small forward against the Hornets on Monday.

Matt Barnes (calf) is out and the injury could cost him a few games. Fantasy owners need to remember that being a starter is not everything and Bullock is only a desperation play. We wouldn't recommend him as a cheap option in daily fantasy leagues either.
Nov 24 - 5:41 PM

Matt Barnes (calf) will not play against the Hornets on Monday and he could miss a few games.

He's been dealing with a calf issue for about the past week and the Clippers will just sit him down tonight. It'll be second-year swingman Reggie Bullock in the starting lineup, but Jamal Crawford probably benefits most. Barnes is not worth owning in most leagues.
Nov 24 - 5:38 PM

Matt Barnes (sore left calf) looked fine in 19 minutes of action vs. the Grizzlies, contributing nine points on 4-of-6 shooting, one 3-pointer and two rebounds in the Clippers' road loss.

Barnes has reclaimed the starting SF job and is at least worth monitoring in all formats for his under-the-radar contributions -- in the past five games he's averaging 10.0 points on 47.2 percent shooting, with 1.8 threes, 2.2 rebounds and 0.4 steals.
