Los Angeles Clippers Player Notes
For The Last 365 Days
 
Chris Paul, G3/2/2015 10:54:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard Chris Paul went 12-of-20 from the field during Monday's victory against the Timberwolves.
Insight: Paul also recorded 26 points, 14 dimes, four rebounds, two 3-pointers, three steals, and one turnover. Pretty impressive performance.
DeAndre Jordan, C3/2/2015 10:52:00 PM
Description: Clippers center DeAndre Jordan continued to be a monster on the glass on Monday night.
Insight: He grabbed 18 boards, and scored 12 points on 4-of-7 shooting from the field and 4-of-9 shooting from the line. He is a borderline top-50 option.
Jamal Crawford, G3/2/2015 10:08:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard Jamal Crawford left Monday's game with a calf contusion and will not return.
Insight: Austin Rivers and J.J. Redick will see extended time if Crawford is forced to miss more time. He had nine points, two rebounds, and one 3-pointer before departing.
J.J. Redick, G3/2/2015 1:54:00 PM
Description: Clippers shooting guard J.J. Redick had an x-ray on his left knee after Sunday's game and should be considered questionable for Monday.
Insight: The Clippers have very little depth at this time. If Reddick can't play both Jamal Crawford and Austin Rivers would see a lot of time alongside Chris Paul.
Matt Barnes, SF3/2/2015 1:52:00 PM
Description: Clippers forward Matt Barnes left Sunday's game versus the Bulls with a right hamstring injury and is doubtful for Monday's game against Minnesota
Insight: Barnes is averaging 9.6 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 1.5 apg so his fantasy value is limited. The injury could force the Clippers to go with a three-guard lineup using Jamal Crawford. They really don't need a rebounder at the position, DeAndre Jordan is grabbing every rebound anyway.
DeAndre Jordan, C3/1/2015 3:36:00 PM
Description: Clippers center DeAndre Jordan grabbed an incredible 26 rebounds versus the Bulls on Sunday.
Insight: Jordan scored just nine points and continues to struggle at the line, but he is the best rebounder in the league. He has eight straight games with at least 15 rebounds. On Sunday, he reached that mark in the first half. Jordan is averaging 14.2 rpg this season.
Chris Paul, G3/1/2015 3:30:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard Chris Paul had an incredible game with 28 points and 12 assists versus the Bulls on Sunday.
Insight: Paul was 12-of-19 from the field as the Clippers picked up its second straight big road victory. Los Angeles knocked off Memphis on Friday. Paul now has 29 double-doubles this season. He is averaging 21.8 ppg and 11.6 apg over the last five games.
Matt Barnes, SF3/1/2015 1:54:00 PM
Description: Clippers forward Matt Barnes left Sunday's game versus the Bulls with a hamstring injury.
Insight: Barnes was trying to stretch out his hamstring on the sideline. ESPN's Doris Burke reported he should return, so fantasy owners have nothing to worry about for now. That's also good news for the Clippers, who have a very thin bench.
Chris Paul, G2/27/2015 10:31:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard Chris Paul posted a double-double during Friday's victory over the Grizzlies.
Insight: He had 19 points, 13 dimes, four rebounds, two steals, one 3-pointer, and one turnover. Paul is a top-five option in standard leagues.
DeAndre Jordan, C2/27/2015 10:30:00 PM
Description: After grabbing 19 rebounds on Wednesday, Clippers center DeAndre Jordan topped that performance on Friday.
Insight: He finished with 15 points, 22 boards, three assists, two steals, three blocks, and one turnover. More impressively, Jordan had 17 free throw attempts, and made seven of them.
DeAndre Jordan, C2/25/2015 10:42:00 PM
Description: Clippers center DeAndre Jordan posted a monster double-double during Wednesday loss versus Houston
Insight: He finished with 22 points and 19 rebounds, along with one assist, two blocks and three turnovers. Jordan also shot 9-of-12 from the field and 4-of-8 from the line to complete his big night.
Chris Paul, G2/25/2015 10:41:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard Chris Paul went for 22 points and 14 dimes on Wednesday night.
Insight: It was in a losing effort, and Paul shot 8-of-18 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line. He is still a top-five option in standard leagues.
Chris Paul, GHot2/24/2015 10:07:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Chris Paul went large Monday night, throwing up 30 points with four rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and two blocks.
Insight: Paul is averaging 19.5 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 12.1 apg in the six games since Blake Griffin was injured. All three numbers are above his season average as he's doing his part to compensate for the team's loss of offense.
J.J. Redick, G2/22/2015 9:26:00 AM
Description: Clippers shooting guard J.J. Redick knocked down four 3-pointers during Saturday's victory versus Sacramento.
Insight: He scored 24 points, going 6-of-13 from the field and 8-of-8 from the line. Redick also managed three assists and two rebounds.
Austin Rivers, SG2/22/2015 9:24:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Austin Rivers scored a career-high 28 points on Saturday night.
Insight: He hit five 3-pointers and 11-of-19 from the floor. Rivers also had two assists, one rebound, three steals, and one turnover. Owners should not expect nights like this one very often.
Austin Rivers, SG2/21/2015 10:46:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Austin Rivers is expected to miss Saturday's game against Sacramento due to a sprained left ankle.
Insight: The coach's son could be out for a while. Rivers has no fantasy value now that J.J. Redick has returned from injury. It's more playing time for Jamal Crawford.
Jamal Crawford, GHot2/19/2015 10:45:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Jamal Crawford is averaging 19.7 shot attempts per game in the three games Blake Griffin has missed due to injury. He averages 13.1 attempts per game on the season.
Insight: Crawford, who never met a shot he didn't like, has taken advantage of the available opportunities and fantasy owners should too. He's averaging 21 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 2.7 apg since Griffin went down.
Chris Paul, GHot2/19/2015 10:42:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Chris Paul has posted double-doubles in all three games that Blake Griffin has been sidelined by the elbow issue.
Insight: Paul is still only averaging 18.3 ppg in that span versus 17.7 ppg for the season, but he has 38 assists, 18 rebounds and seven steals in that span, so it appears he's trying to do more to help compensate.
Blake Griffin, F2/19/2015 10:37:00 AM
Description: Clipper power forward Blake Griffin (surgery on his right elbow) said he had good news from his doctors and will have stitches removed next week, according to Clipper beat writer Don Woike.
Insight: Still no firm timetable for his return. Spencer Hawes has been playing in place of Griffin but he's been inconsistent. Griffin's absence has allowed DeAndre Jordan to gobble up rebounds by the bushel and Jamal Crawford to score 20-plus points in four straight games.
Jamal Crawford, G2/10/2015 9:40:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Jamal Crawford is going to have to increase his offense along with Spencer Hawes and Chris Paul to make up for the loss of Blake Griffin.
Insight: Crawford, who never met a shot he didn't like, should have no problem in this area. Monday he took a team-leading 24 shots and posted 22 points. His lack of help in the other fantasy categories is what limits him from being a better asset for owners.
Chris Paul, GHot2/10/2015 9:36:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Chris Paul scored 25 points with 13 assists, six rebounds and a pair of steals.
Insight: Paul is going to have to increase his scoring to help replace Blake Griffin's offense and he's done that - at least on Monday. He's averaged 17.8 ppg this season, but should get closer to 23-24 ppg over the next few weeks if the Clippers are to have a chance to stay in the playoff hunt. That's great news for his fantasy owners.
DeAndre Jordan, CHot2/10/2015 9:32:00 AM
Description: Clippers center DeAndre Jordan recorded a season-high 27 rebounds on the way to a stunning 22-points, 27 rebound, three block performance.
Insight: Jordan even made 6-of-9 free throws which is well above his season averaged of 40.8 percent. With Blake griffin out of the lineup, Jordan is going to dominate the rebounding category for the Clippers in every game.
J.J. Redick, G2/9/2015 7:28:00 PM
Description: Clippers shooting guard J.J. Redick will start versus the Mavericks on Monday.
Insight: This is surprising because he was listed as doubtful before the game. Redick should be in all lineups as he will benefit from the absence of Blake Griffin. Hopefully, Redick doesn't suffer another setback to his back like he did last Monday.
Blake Griffin, F2/9/2015 7:21:00 PM
Description: Clipper power forward Blake Griffin underwent surgery on his right elbow Monday and will be re-evaluated in three weeks according to NBA reporter David Aldridge.
Insight: That's right on target with the original prognosis. Spencer Hawes is playing extremely well in place of Griffin and is the best option on the Clippers to replace Griffin in your fantasy lineup.
Glen Davis, F2/9/2015 12:03:00 PM
Description: Clippers forward Glen Davis left Sunday's game with back spasms and is questionable for Tuesday's game against Denver.
Insight: With Blake Griffin already sidelined, the Clippers are very thin up front. Spencer Hawes' value continues to increase after a 17-point game on Sunday. We'd like to see more than one rebound from a seven-footer, however.
Spencer Hawes, C2/8/2015 3:33:00 PM
Description: Clippers center Spencer Hawes had 17 points in a start on Sunday.
Insight: The point total is the good news, however Hawes managed just one rebound in 35 minutes of action. He did have two 3-pointers and one block as well, and with Blake Griffin on the shelf, Hawes is definitely worth a look.
Chris Paul, G2/8/2015 3:32:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard Chris Paul recorded a double-double during Sunday's loss versus Oklahoma City.
Insight: He had 18 points and 13 dimes, along with six rebounds, three steals, and one turnover. Paul shot 7-of-13 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line as well. He is a top-five option.
Glen Davis, F2/8/2015 2:01:00 PM
Description: Clippers forward Glen Davis left Sunday's game with back spasms and will not return.
Insight: This is noteworthy with Blake Griffin's injury news coming out today. Specer Hawes' value continues to increase.
Spencer Hawes, C2/8/2015 12:55:00 PM
Description: Clippers center Spencer Hawes will get the first crack at starting for the injured Blake Griffin.
Insight: Hawes should be picked up everywhere, and will have a nice opportunity to put up some numbers while Griffin is out.
Blake Griffin, F2/8/2015 12:50:00 PM
Description: Clipper power forward Blake Griffin will undergo surgery for a staph infection in his right elbow.
Insight: This comes out of nowhere, and the procedure will be done on Monday. Griffin is expected to miss 4-6 weeks, with Spencer Hawes seeing the biggest bump in value.
Chris Paul, G2/7/2015 11:02:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Chris Paul played solidly Friday night amid the controversy of his recent comments toward an official's call.
Insight: Paul shot 8-of-16 for 22 points with six rebounds, nine assists and two steals. The NBA will apparently just fine him for his criticism on an official, so no lost playing time, which is as it should be. Keep him in your lineups.
Blake Griffin, F2/6/2015 10:13:00 PM
Description: Clipper power forward Blake Griffin filled the stat sheet during Friday's loss against the Raptors.
Insight: He went 9-of-15 from the field and 8-of-9 from the line for 26 points, six rebounds, one steal, one block, and one turnover. Griffin is a top-50 player.
Blake Griffin, F2/5/2015 10:36:00 PM
Description: Clipper power forward Blake Griffin scored a team-high 16 points during Thursday's loss to the Cavaliers.
Insight: He went 7-of-17 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line. Griffin also had eight boards, four assists, and one turnover.
Jamal Crawford, G2/5/2015 11:10:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Jamal Crawford took 22 shots in 37 plus minutes Monday night
Insight: Crawford only hit seven of them, but we like the aggressiveness. He's going to see a lot of playing time with J.J. Redick likely out due to recurring back spasms. He's worth a spot in your lineup.
J.J. Redick, G2/3/2015 4:01:00 PM
Description: Clippers shooting guard J.J. Redick is out indefinitely with back spasms according to ESPN.
Insight: Redick played just four minutes in Monday's loss to Brooklyn and afterwards, coach Doc Rivers admitted that Redick probably shouldn't have played. It's tough to tell how long Redick will be out. Jamal Crawford will start in his place.
DeAndre Jordan, C2/2/2015 10:13:00 PM
Description: Clippers center DeAndre Jordan recorded his first 20-20 game of the 2014-2015 season.
Insight: Jordan had 22 points and 20 rebounds in the loss versus the Nets on Monday. Jordan had three games with 20 or more rebounds in December, but he fell short of 20 points. Jordan has grabbed at least 12 rebounds in 13 of the last 15 games.
J.J. Redick, G2/2/2015 8:33:00 PM
Description: Clippers shooting guard J.J. Redick is questionable to return to Monday's game versus the Nets according to the team's twitter page.
Insight: Redick seems to have re-injured his back. He returned on Friday after missing Wednesday's game last week. Jamal Crawford and Matt Barnes will fill in while he is out.
Chris Paul, G1/30/2015 10:40:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard Chris Paul led the team with 24 points in the loss on Friday to the Pelicans.
Insight: It was a disappointing, 108-103, loss to New Orleans, who was playing without Anthony Davis. Paul was 10-of-20 from the field, including 3-for-9 from the 3-point line. He also had eight rebounds, seven assists and three steals.
J.J. Redick, G1/30/2015 6:53:00 PM
Description: Clippers shooting guard J.J. Redick will be back on the floor on Friday versus the Pelicans.
Insight: This sends Jamal Crawford back to his bench role. Redick should be in all lineups with a favorable matchup versus the Pelicans.
J.J. Redick, G1/29/2015 9:37:00 AM
Description: Clippers shooting guard J.J. Redick sat out Wednesday'a game due to back spasms.
Insight: Redick wasn't missed as replacement, Jamal Crawford, nailed four three-pointers for 21 points. Coach Doc Rivers hopes he'll play Friday versus New Orleans.
Matt Barnes, SF1/27/2015 10:12:00 AM
Description: Clippers forward Matt Barnes suffered an abdominal strain in the fourth quarter of Monday's game against Denver.
Insight: Call him questionable for Wednesday until we hear more news. Barnes' fantasy value is limited (9.8 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 1.3 apg), but his absence would likely end up in the Clippers playing more three guard offense with Jamal Crawford seeing an increase in playing time and shot opportunities.
Blake Griffin, F1/27/2015 8:36:00 AM
Description: Clipper power forward Blake Griffin salvaged a bad shooting night after starting 1-of-8, to score 14 points with nine rebounds and 10 assists.
Insight: Griffin was 6-of-17 from the field. It's the third time this season he posted double-digit assists as he came very close to his first triple-double of the season. He's still a fantasy stud, though owners would like to see more rebounding. His 7.6 rebounds per game is the lowest of his career.
Jamal Crawford, G1/27/2015 8:25:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Jamal Crawford came off the bench and scored 19 points of his 23 points in the fourth quarter to fuel a Clippers come-from-behind win over Denver.
Insight: Crawford added four rebounds, three assists and two steals. The sixth man could always score, he just doesn't usually help in any other areas.
Blake Griffin, FHot1/25/2015 8:42:00 PM
Description: Clipper power forward Blake Griffin had 23 points, seven assists, and seven rebounds in the victory over the Suns.
Insight: Griffin was 11-of-19 from the field but struggled at the line, going, 1-for-4. Griffin is a top option at the forward position.
Chris Paul, G1/25/2015 8:34:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard Chris Paul had a double-double and made three 3-pointers on Sunday versus the Suns.
Insight: Paul had 23 points and 12 assists. He nearly had a triple-double with eight rebounds. Paul was 7-of-11, including 3-for-5 from the 3-point line, and was 6-of-7 from the line. Paul is an obvious must-start.
DeAndre Jordan, C1/19/2015 6:15:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles center DeAndre Jordan had 19 points and 12 rebounds versus the Celtics on Monday.
Insight: Jordan shot an incredible 8-of-9 from the field on his way to the double-double. He also had six blocks. An incredible performance from Jordan.
Blake Griffin, FHot1/19/2015 6:13:00 PM
Description: Clipper power forward Blake Griffin led Los Angeles with 22 points and nine rebounds on Monday.
Insight: Griffin also had six assists and a steal. He shot 9-of-18 from the field and went 4-for-4 at the line. Griffin is averaging about 23.0 ppg with over 7.5 rpg and shooting nearly 50 percent from the field.
Blake Griffin, FHot1/17/2015 9:26:00 AM
Description: Clipper power forward Blake Griffin led Los Angeles with 34 points and 10 rebounds versus the Cavaliers on Friday.
Insight: It was Griffin's 10th double-double of the season. Interestingly, Griffin has reached double figures in scoring every single game this season. He is averaging 22.9 ppg and 7.6 rpg this season.
Blake Griffin, FHot1/11/2015 6:25:00 PM
Description: Clipper power forward Blake Griffin scored 26 points on Sunday.
Insight: Griffin was 10-of-19 from the field and 5-for-7 at the line. He also had six rebounds and three assists. Griffin has been scoring a lot lately. He has at least 22 points scored in each of the last four games.
Jamal Crawford, G1/10/2015 6:27:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard Jamal Crawford came off the bench and scored 19 points in Saturday's victory over the Mavericks.
Insight: Crawford was 6-of-10 from the field and made three 3-pointers. Crawford's minutes have been down the last five games and as a result, his numbers are down, but he can still produce when he shoots as well as he did on Saturday.
Blake Griffin, FHot1/10/2015 6:24:00 AM
Description: Clipper power forward Blake Griffin shot 73 percent from the field Saturday to lead Los Angeles over Dallas, 120-100.
Insight: Griffin led his team with 22 points and also chipped in seven rebounds and six assists. Griffin has at least 22 points in the last three games, so he should definitely be in every fantasy lineup.
Chris Paul, GCold1/6/2015 10:22:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Chris Paul put up a clunker Monday night, scoring just 10 points with six rebounds and 10 assists.
Insight: Paul has posted poor numbers in two of the last three games, but he's an elite point guard and this is just a small hiccup in a long season. No need to panic.
Blake Griffin, F1/6/2015 10:19:00 AM
Description: Clipper power forward Blake Griffin didn't shoot a high percentage from the field Monday night, but made a living at the free throw line.
Insight: He had 26 points, 14 at the foul line, 10 rebounds and six assists. Griffin is averaging 22.5 ppg, 7.7 rpg, and 4.9 apg, but his .481 percentage from the field is the lowest of his career. He's a career .523 shooter, so expect this slump to end soon.
Blake Griffin, F1/1/2015 12:58:00 PM
Description: Clipper power forward Blake Griffin nearly posted a triple-double in Wednesday's win against the Knicks.
Insight: He had 13 points, 11 assists, seven rebounds. Griffin is now averaging 22.6 ppg, 7.8 rpg, and 5.0 apg.
Blake Griffin, F12/30/2014 12:11:00 PM
Description: Clipper power forward Blake Griffin had another typical night.
Insight: He went 10-of-20 from the field and 4-of-6 from the line for 24 points, seven assists, six rebounds, two steals, three blocks, but also six turnovers. Owners will take everything besides the turnovers.
DeAndre Jordan, C12/30/2014 12:10:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles center DeAndre Jordan was very defensive during Monday's victory against the Jazz.
Insight: He scored only five points, but also had 19 rebounds and four blocks. Those are the numbers owners nee Jordan to provide.
Spencer Hawes, C12/29/2014 3:47:00 PM
Description: Clippers center Spencer Hawes (left knee) told Clippers beat writer Dan Woike, he expectd to play Monday night.
Insight: Hawes (6.3 ppg, 4.3 rpg) won't be fantasy worthy as long as DeAndre Jordan is playing big minutes.
J.J. Redick, G12/27/2014 6:05:00 PM
Description: Clippers shooting guard J.J. Redick nailed five 3-pointers during Saturday's loss.
Insight: Redick made 5-of-9 3-pointers, going 9-for-16 from the field. He led the team with 23 points, but it wasn't enough as the Clippers lost to the Raptors, 110-98. Redick also had three assists, one block and a rebound.
Jamal Crawford, G12/26/2014 12:01:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles guard Jamal Crawford came off the bench and led the Clippers in scoring on Christmas.
Insight: Crawford shot 8-for-18, scoring 24 points. He shot 4-of-10 from the 3-point line. Crawford also had seven rebounds and two assists. Crawford hasn't had a great month of Decemeber, but in the last five games, he is averaging 19.4 ppg.
Blake Griffin, F12/26/2014 11:58:00 AM
Description: Clipper power forward Blake Griffin recorded a double-double on Thursday.
Insight: Griffin had 18 points and 15 rebounds in the victory over the Warriors. He also had six assists, two steals and a block. Griffin is a top-ten option at the forward position.

Insight: Paul shot 7-of-18 from the field, making one 3-pointer and seven out of eight free throws. He also had seven rebounds, four assists and three steals.
Spencer Hawes, C12/25/2014 10:40:00 AM
Description: Clippers center Spencer Hawes is out indefinitely due to a bad left knee.

Description: Clipper power forward Blake Griffin recorded a double-double on Tuesday.
Insight: Griffin had 21 points and 11 assists. He nearly had a triple-double as he also had eight rebounds. Griffin's rebounding numbers are down this season, but his assists numbers have increased.

Description: Clippers guard Chris Paul scored a team-high 27 points in a win Saturday versus Milwaukee.

Jared Dudley, F12/17/2014 9:23:00 PM
Description: It looks like forward Jared Dudley will replace Jabari Parker in the starting lineup.
Insight: With Parker likely out for the season, Dudley will receive a majority of Parker's minutes if not all of them. Dudley is worth looking at in standard leagues.
Spencer Hawes, C12/15/2014 4:17:00 PM
Description: Clippers center Spencer Hawes left Friday's game with a left knee injury and is questionable for Monday's game against Detroit.
Insight: His MRI was negative. Hawes (6.3 ppg, 4.3 rpg) won't be fantasy worthy as long as DeAndre Jordan is healthy.
Reggie Bullock, F12/15/2014 4:16:00 PM
Description: Clippers SF Reggie Bullock (sprained right ankle) has missed the past six games and is doubtful for Monday night against Detroit.
Insight: Bullock has no fantasy value playing about 10 minutes per night and averaging 3.2 ppg.
Matt Barnes, SF12/13/2014 10:42:00 PM
Description: Clippers forward Matt Barnes scored 26 points, going 10-of-18 from the field but that was not enough against the upstart Bucks.

Description: Clippers guard Chris Paul scored a team-high 19 points during Friday's loss to the Wizards.
Insight: He also had seven rebounds, six assists, one 3-pointer, but six turnovers as well. Not the best night for Paul, but he is still a top-three option.

Jordan Farmar, G12/8/2014 2:00:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles Clippers guard Jordan Farmar is questionable for Monday's game against Phoenix while dealing with a back issue.
Insight: Consider him day-to-day. Jared Cunningham is Chris Paul's temporary backup but has little fantasy value.
Reggie Bullock, F12/8/2014 1:57:00 PM
Description: Clippers SF Reggie Bullock (ankle) has missed the past two games and isn't close to returning, according to Clippers beat reporter Ben Bloch.
Insight: Bullock has no fantasy value playing about 10 minutes per night and averaging 3.2 ppg.

Insight: Barnes has limited fantasy value with his 7.8 ppg, 2.1 rpg average. He's not a top scoring option on a team with Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, J.J. Redick and Jamal Crawford. Reggie Bullock got the start Wednesday, but didn't prove to have any fantasy value even as a starter.

Description: Clippers center Spencer Hawes is in a walking boot after suffering a left foot strain on Saturday.
Insight: Hawes has played well, so it would be a big loss if he is out for an extended period of time. However, he does not hold much fantasy value, but nevertheless Glen Davis would see an increase in playing time during Hawes' absence.

Insight: He started in place of Matt Barnes, and scored 20 points, while hitting three 3-pointers. There is no telling if Crawford's move to the starting lineup is permanent, but if he does stay there, his value will increase even more.

Glen Davis, F11/3/2014 12:01:00 PM

Insight: He averaged 18.6 points per game, 3.2 assists per game, 0.9 steals per game, 2.3 three-pointers per game, as well as shooting 87 percent from the line. Owners should look to select Crawford in the 10th round.
Spencer Hawes, C10/25/2014 6:03:00 PM
Description: Clippers center Spencer Hawes will be an interesting fantasy player this season.
Insight: He is clearly a bench player for Los Angeles, but should still see some decent playing time. Hawes could still average around 10 points per game, and seven rebounds per game, and if he still able to knock down a few three-pointers per game, he is worthy of a late-round flier.

Matt Barnes, SF10/25/2014 5:55:00 PM
Description: Clippers forward Matt Barnes provides some value for fantasy owners.
Insight: He averaged 9.9 points per game, 4.6 rebounds per game, 0.9 steals per game, and 1.5 three-pointers per game, last season. We don't love Barnes' 11th round value, but owners should certainly not avoid him altogether.

He pulled out of Team USA's training camp for the FIBA World Championships due to the injury, but it seems to be a precautionary move. "My whole thing is that I didn't want to go into (Clippers training) camp and put myself in a worse position," Griffin said. "It's not that my back is broken and I'm walking around with a broken back, or I'm in so much pain. But if I start playing basically two months earlier than everybody else and then go through all of next season and the playoffs, then I'm probably going to put myself in a bad position. I couldn't do that."
Insight: "It's less than a hairline and my back is not fractured. Everything is still intact," Griffin said. "I can still come out here and I can do my workouts and I can do everything I used to do.

The 26-year-old ended up setting career highs with 13.2 points, 8.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.6 threes per game while adding 1.2 blocks and 0.6 steals per game. However, he won't have much fantasy value as a backup to Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan.

Description: Clippers shooting guard Jamal Crawford could miss the rest of the season according to head coach Doc Rivers. SOURCE: Dan Woike, Orange County Register
Insight: Obviously he won't be competing Thursday against Dallas. Crawford has missed the last two games with an injured calf and at this point, the priority is to have him ready for the playoffs. J.J. Redick (15.7 ppg) should pick up most of his minutes.

Blake Griffin, F3/30/2014 4:00:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles power forward Blake Griffin is unlikely to suit up Monday against the Timberwolves. SOURCE: Brad Turner, Los Angeles Times
Insight: Back spasms limited Griffin to just six minutes Saturday against Houston. With Griffin hurt and Glen "Big Baby" Davis on bad terms with head coach Doc Rivers, the Clippers will probably have to go guard-heavy tomorrow night in Minneapolis.

Description: Danny Granger won't be available for at least the Clippers' next two games. SOURCE: Arash Markazi, ESPN Los Angeles

Description: Clippers forward Glen Davis was banished to the locker room Saturday after getting into a heated exchange with head coach Doc Rivers. SOURCE: Arash Markazi, ESPN
Insight: Behavioral issues have plagued Davis throughout his career and Rivers seems to be running out of patience. Even if Davis can find his way out of Rivers' dog house, he's not likely to gain fantasy relevance in the Clippers' loaded frontcourt.

Description: Los Angeles guard Chris Paul was on fire Saturday against Houston.

Insight: Granger has not posted a double-digit point total in three games and has limited value even when healthy.
Chris Paul, G3/27/2014 11:14:00 AM
Description: Clippers point guard Chris Paul had the worst shooting game of his career Wednesday night (0-for-12), but he did manage 12 assists and four rebounds.
Insight: It was just one of those days when he couldn't get anything to drop. He had gone 40-for-74 (54 percent) in the previous five games, so we expect him to return to normal on Thursday. Start him as always.
Jamal Crawford, G3/26/2014 10:40:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles guard Jamal Crawford went ballistic Wednesday in a loss to the Pelicans.
Insight: Crawford led all scorers with 31 points, his highest point total since scoring 36 against the Thunder on February 23rd. The veteran is a leading candidate for Sixth Man of the Year, an award he already won with Atlanta back in 2010.

Description: Los Angeles guard J.J. Redick won't be active Wednesday against New Orleans. SOURCE: Brad Turner, Los Angeles Times

Description: Clippers shooting guard J.J. Redick won't make his return from a back injury Monday against Milwaukee. SOURCE: Arash Markazi, ESPN

Jamal Crawford, G3/23/2014 9:39:00 AM
Description: Clippers shooting guard Jamal Crawford (calf) played 33 minutes in his return to the lineup.
Insight: Crawford missed eight of the last nine games due to a calf strain. He returned too soon from the injury on March 8 and had to miss five additional games, but the Clippers didn't ease him back in Saturday so he must be close to 100 percent. Even if he doesn't get back the starting job from Darren Collison, he should play more minutes than Collison moving forward.
Matt Barnes, SFHot3/23/2014 9:36:00 AM
Description: Clippers forward Matt Barnes had 14 points, seven rebounds, two blocks, two threes and one steal Saturday against the Pistons.

Insight: Crawford (18.7 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 3.2 apg) missed eight of the last nine games due to a calf strain. He returned too soon from the injury on March 8 and had to miss five additional games, so look for the Clippers to ease him back into the lineup Saturday. He'll come off the bench while Darren Collison gets his eighth straight start.
Jamal Crawford, G3/22/2014 4:39:00 PM
Description: Clippers shooting guard Jamal Crawford (calf) will be a game-time decision Saturday against Detroit, according to Dan Woike of the Orange County Register.
Insight: Crawford (18.7 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 3.2 apg) missed eight of the last nine games due to a calf strain.

Description: Clippers shooting guard Jamal Crawford (calf) is probable for Saturday's game against Detroit.

Insight: The L.A. Times reported earlier today that Redick (15.7 ppg) would be in the lineup on Saturday but apparently that won't be the case. A bulging disc in Redick's back has kept him out since early February.

Darren Collison, G3/17/2014 10:48:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Darren Collison missed Sunday's game with a stomach virus and is questionable for Monday's game against Denver.
Insight: With J.J. Redick, Jamal Crawford and Collison out and Jared Dudley not part of the rotation at the moment, the Clippers started Willie Green Sunday. Green has posted double-digit points in three consecutive games and is a viable option if Collison is still sidelined.

Description: Clippers guard Darren Collison will miss Sunday's game with an illness, according to Dan Woike of the Orange County Register.

Description: Los Angeles forward Jared Dudley will miss his third game in a row Monday against Phoenix. SOURCE: Dan Woike, Orange County Register
Insight: Dudley's back is still giving him problems. Hedo Turkoglu (2.6 ppg, 2.7 rpg) and Danny Granger (8.1 ppg) will continue to backup starter Matt Barnes (9.0 ppg, 4.4 rpg) at the small forward position.

Description: Los Angeles guard Jamal Crawford (calf) said he returned too soon from his injury and will miss Monday's game, according to Arash Markazi of ESPN.

Blake Griffin, FHot3/9/2014 9:44:00 AM
Description: Make it 23 games in a row with 20+ points for Blake Griffin after he had 27 Saturday in the Clippers' win over the Hawks.

DeAndre Jordan, C3/9/2014 9:40:00 AM

Insight: Jordan leads the NBA with 13.9 rebounds per game and a .663 field-goal percentage. Andre Drummond is the next closest player in field-goal percentage and he's shooting 61.7 percent. Throw in 10.3 ppg, 2.4 bpg and 1.0 spg and you have yourself a top-15 fantasy center despite his putrid .457 free-throw percentage.
Jared Dudley, F3/8/2014 9:02:00 PM
Description: Clippers small forward Jared Dudley (back) will miss Saturday's game, according to Dan Woike of the Orange County Register.
Insight: Dudley missed his first game of the season Thursday. Danny Granger and Hedo Turkoglu will take Dudley's 25.1 mpg while he's out.

Description: Los Angeles guard Jamal Crawford (calf) will play Saturday against the Hawks, according to Dan Woike of the Orange County Register.

Crawford has averaged nine fewer minutes per game in his 37 games off the bench than in his 23 games as a starter. Los Angeles will stick with Darren Collison (19 ppg, 4.0 apg, 2.0 spg, 2.0 3pg last four games) at shooting guard for now.
Jamal Crawford, G3/8/2014 3:29:00 PM

Description: Clippers small forward Jared Dudley won't be able to play Thursday against the Lakers. He's dealing with back spasms. SOURCE: Orange County Register

Jamal Crawford, G3/6/2014 10:05:00 PM
Description: Clippers shooting guard Jamal Crawford won't be in the lineup Thursday against the Lakers.

In 20 games since losing his job to Matt Barnes, he has averaged 17.7 mpg, 4.4 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 1.3 apg and 0.6 mpg which means he can be released from all fantasy rosters.
Jamal Crawford, G3/5/2014 4:29:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard Jamal Crawford (strained calf) has been downgraded to doubtful for Thursday's game against the Lakers, according to Dan Woike of the Orange County Register.

Description: Clippers small forward Jared Dudley left Tuesday's game with back spasms.
Insight: Dudley began the season as the starting small forward but averaged just 8.7 ppg, 2.2 rpg, 1.6 apg and 1.5 3pg in the first 42 games. In 20 games since losing his job to Matt Barnes, he has averaged 17.7 mpg, 4.4 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 1.3 apg and 0.6 3pg.
Darren Collison, GHot3/5/2014 9:20:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Darren Collison has averaged 32.3 minutes, 17.3 points, 4.3 assists, 2.3 threes and 2.0 steals his last three games.
Insight: Jamal Crawford strained his left calf three games ago and Collison has taken advantage while starting the last two. Crawford is expected back soon, however.
Matt Barnes, SFHot3/5/2014 9:17:00 AM
Description: Clippers forward Matt Barnes dropped 28 points in 40 minutes Tuesday at Phoenix.
Insight: Barnes has scored in double figures in six straight games and averaged 33.2 mpg, 17.3 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 3.3 3pg, 2.3 apg and 1.0 spg in that span. His outburst has come at a good time, as the Clippers are playing without J.J. Redick (back) and Jamal Crawford (calf).
Jamal Crawford, GHot3/4/2014 1:35:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard Jamal Crawford is expected to miss Tuesday's game against Phoenix with a minor strained calf injury.
Insight: The team just signed Danny Granger and will need him and Darren Collison to fill in for Crawford. Prior to suffering the injury in Wednesday's game, Crawford had scored 19 or more points in 18 of his previous 19 games while averaging 24.2 ppg in that span.
