Description: Clippers forward Matt Barnes will start on Thursday against the Heat.
Insight: Barnes has played well, scoring in double digits in two of the last three games, and looks to have won back his starting job. He has a favorable matchup versus the Heat, and if he remains in the lineup, he is worth picking up in standard leagues.

Description: Clippers guard Chris Paul shot nearly 62 percent from the floor in Wednesday's, 114-90, victory over the Magic.

Jamal Crawford, G11/18/2014 9:56:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles guard Jamal Crawford shot 10-for-17 from the field and totaled a team-high 24 points against the Bulls.
Insight: Crawford is instant offense and when he's on like Monday night he's tough to stop. he's averaging 18 ppg in eight games this season, but doesn't provide much else for fantasy owners.
DeAndre Jordan, C11/18/2014 9:55:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles center DeAndre Jordan was a beast on the glass, hauling in 17 rebounds against Joakim Noah and the Bulls.
Insight: Jordan was 5-of-6 from the field which is about what we expect from him offensively and he also blocked three shots.

Description: Clippers power forward Blake Griffin scored 19 points with 10 rebounds and four assists.
Insight: He is averaging 23.1 ppg and 7.3 rpg this season, so his scoring wasn't up to expectations.

Insight: He was 8-of-24 from the floor, but did make 7-of-8 free throw attempts, and pitched in six rebounds and three assists. Griffin is a must-start option everytime out.
Spencer Hawes, C11/8/2014 6:43:00 PM
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.
Jamal Crawford, G11/8/2014 6:28:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles guard Jamal Crawford played well in his first start of the season.
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.
Chris Paul, G11/8/2014 6:26:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard Chris Paul notched a double-double in Saturday's win over Portland.
Insight: He had 22 points and 11 assists, along with four rebounds, one steal, one block, and zero turnovers. Paul-owners should be extremely pleased with this line.

Description: Clippers shooting guard J.J. Redick turned in his best performance of the season.
Insight: He scored 30 points on 11-of-13 shooting from the field and 6-of-8 shooting from the line, including two 3-pointers. Redick will not score 30 points often, but the fact he is shooting the ball well, is a great sign for owners.
Glen Davis, F11/3/2014 12:01:00 PM
Description: Clippers forward Glen Davis is unlikely to be ready for Monday's game due to a groin strain.
Insight: He is simply on the Clippers to provide depth, and does not provide much fantasy upside, unless something drastic changes.
Jamal Crawford, G11/3/2014 11:59:00 AM

Insight: The injury isn't considered serious. he's averaging 19.0 ppg 2.0 rpg, 3.5 apg over his first two contests.
Chris Paul, G11/2/2014 4:30:00 PM

Description: Los Angeles guard Jamal Crawford played well in 27 miuntes of action.
Insight: He had 22 points, five assists, and three 3-pointers, while going 9-of-10 from the charity stripe. Crawford will continue to give owners point production and 3-pointers all season long.
Blake Griffin, F11/1/2014 9:30:00 AM
Description: Clippers power forward Blake Griffin had a monster night, in Friday's win over the Lakers.
Insight: He shot 13-of-23 from the field and 11-of-12 from the line for 39 points, while chipping in seven rebounds and four assists. Griffin did have five turnovers, but owners will take that, on a night where he puts up these type of numbers.
J.J. Redick, G10/31/2014 1:49:00 PM
Description: Clippers shooting guard J.J. Redick will have to shake off a poor opening night shooting performance.
Insight: Redick went 1-of-10 and hit just one of seven three point shots. He's a great shooter and we have no doubts he'll rebound quickly. He averaged a career-high 15.2 points per game last season.
Jamal Crawford, G10/25/2014 6:05:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles guard Jamal Crawford will continue to have nice fantasy value this season.
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.
Chris Paul, G10/25/2014 6:00:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard Chris Paul should be drafted in the top-five of fantasy drafts.
Insight: He continues to be one of the best players in the NBA, and owners can expect a double-double almost every night, along with over two steals per game.

Description: Clippers shooting guard J.J. Redick average a career-high 15.2 points per game last season.
Insight: He will have a chance to continue scoring and hitting the 2.1 three-pointers per game, he produced last seasonn as well. Redick can be targeted starting in the ninth round.
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.
DeAndre Jordan, C10/25/2014 5:53:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles center DeAndre Jordan averaged 10.5 points per game, 13.6 rebounds per game, and 2.5 blocks per game, last season.
Insight: Jordan also manged 1.0 steals per game, and as a result owners can target him late in the second round, or early in the third, at the latest.

Description: Clippers power forward Blake Griffin should be drafted in the mid-second round this season.
Insight: He averaged 24.1 points per game, 9.5 rebounds per game, 1.2 steals per game, while shooting 53 percent from the field. At 25-years-old, Owners can even think about taking him at the end of the first round.
Glen Davis, F10/17/2014 9:13:00 PM
Description: Clippers forward Glen Davis is out indefinitely with a groin strain.
Insight: He is simply on the Clippers to provide depth, and does not provide much fantasy upside, unless something drastic changes.

Insight: Griffin made 8-of-18 corner 3-point shots last season, which is 44.4 percent. He also shot 52.8 percent from the field and made 74 percent of his free throws after the All-Star game. He looks completely healthy and is worth considering as a late first round pick.
Blake Griffin, F8/5/2014 10:46:00 PM
Description: Clippers power forward Blake Griffin said his back is fine, according to the Los Angeles Times. 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. I just shouldn't be playing and practicing everyday this early." Griffin will be fine for the NBA season.

Spencer Hawes, C 7/4/2014 8:20:00 PM
Description: The Clippers have agreed on a four-year, $23 million contract with center Spencer Hawes.
Insight: Hawes added the three-ball to his game last season to increase his fantasy value. 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.
Blake Griffin, F5/14/2014 10:14:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles power forward Blake Griffin turned in another monster performance Tuesday against the Thunder.
Insight: Griffin finished with 24 points, 17 rebounds and two blocked shots as the Clippers lost in heartbreaking last-second fashion. The double-double was Griffin's first of the postseason. He recorded 43 double-doubles during the regular season.
Chris Paul, G5/14/2014 10:11:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Chris Paul collected 17 points, 14 assists and four steals Tuesday in a loss to Oklahoma City.
Insight: He was involved in two of the most controversial plays of the game with the first coming on a steal by Russell Westbrook and then the game-deciding play moments later when Paul fouled Westbrook on a three-point attempt. The Clippers have every right to be furious about the way this game was officiated. Still, they'll have to put this loss behind them if they want to even the series Thursday night in Los Angeles.
Blake Griffin, F5/11/2014 6:57:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles forward Blake Griffin notched 25 points in Sunday's win over the Thunder.
Insight: Griffin got his face bloodied early on but was still able to log 40 minutes of court time in the victory. The nine rebounds he recorded Sunday were his most since Game 6 of the Golden State series. Griffin has had his hands full all series with Serge Ibaka in the low post so Tuesday's Game 5 should be very competitive.
DeAndre Jordan, C5/11/2014 6:50:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles center DeAndre Jordan corralled a game-high 14 rebounds Sunday in a victory over Oklahoma City.
Insight: It's a good thing Jordan was active on the boards because his offensive game was just terrible. He converted only one of his seven free throw attempts and is now averaging just 7.8 ppg for the series. At least he's had five blocked shots over his last two outings.
Chris Paul, G5/11/2014 6:43:00 PM

Blake Griffin, F5/10/2014 11:52:00 AM
Description: Clippers power forward Blake Griffin was huge in defeat, posting 34 points on 13-of-22 shooting with eight rebounds and four assists.

Insight: Jordan had a monster series, contributing 12.1 ppg, 15.1 rpg and 4.0 bpg while shooting 75.7 percent from the field in seven games. With only Kendrick Perkins and Steven Adams to compete with in the low post, Jordan should be just as effective in the second round against OKC.
Chris Paul, G5/4/2014 10:38:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Chris Paul pulled out all the stops Saturday in a win against Golden State.
Insight: Paul ended up with 22 points, 14 assists and four steals while committing just two turnovers. He leads all players in assists (9.0 apg) and steals per game (3.14 spg) this postseason.

Insight: Redick played 30 minutes which indicates he's healthy after missing a lot of time with a bad back. Solid outside shooting from Redick and Chris Paul would make life a lot easier for Blake Griffin on the inside.

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: 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Darren Collison, GHot3/16/2014 9:20:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard Darren Collison will miss Sunday's game with an illness, according to Dan Woike of the Orange County Register.

Insight: Collison is averaging 18.0 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 4.0 apg, 1.8 spg over the past six games. Crawford has missed four of the past five games and apparently came back too soon from his calf injury and could miss more time.

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.
Jamal Crawford, G3/9/2014 10:29:00 AM
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

He averaged 8.3 points on 35.9 percent shooting in 22.5 minutes per game with the Pacers this season and no longer has the legs to be a fantasy option.

Description: Los Angeles center DeAndre Jordan chipped in with 16 rebounds Monday in a win over the Pelicans.
Insight: He also scored 14 points on 7-of-10 shooting. Jordan has averaged a spectacular 14.5 rpg over his last four contests. Amazingly, that's not far off from his season average (14.0 rpg).
Chris Paul, G2/24/2014 10:43:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles point guard Chris Paul produced another strong outing Monday against New Orleans.
Insight: Paul collected 19 points to go with 13 assists, four rebounds and two steals. He's gone 14-for-14 from the free throw line over his last two games. The Clippers only get one night off before hosting Houston at the Staples Center on Wednesday.
Glen Davis, F2/24/2014 6:46:00 PM
Description: Updating an earlier report, Los Angeles forward Glen Davis won't be on the court Monday against New Orleans. He still has to take his physical. SOURCE: Clippers on Twitter
Insight: Davis (12.1 ppg, 6.3 rpg) only cleared waivers yesterday so maybe it was a little unrealistic to expect him to suit up tonight. Regardless, he should be ready to go Wednesday against the Rockets.
Glen Davis, F2/24/2014 5:57:00 PM
Description: Clippers forward Glen Davis should be active for Monday night's game against the Pelicans. SOURCE: Brad Turner, Los Angeles Times
Insight: Davis signed with Los Angeles after clearing waivers on Sunday. Prior to being bought out by the Magic, Davis was averaging 12.1 ppg on 45.3 percent shooting. His fantasy value won't be nearly as high now that he's backing up Blake Griffin.
Chris Paul, G2/23/2014 6:47:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles guard Chris Paul just missed out on a triple-double Sunday against Oklahoma City.
Insight: Paul finished with 18 points, 12 assists and eight boards as the Clippers held on for an eight-point win. The sprained thumb Paul suffered Friday versus Memphis didn't seem to be an issue. Look for Paul to have another big outing Monday against the Pelicans.
Matt Barnes, SF2/23/2014 3:58:00 PM
Description: Clippers forward Matt Barnes scored 24 points Sunday against the Thunder, his most since Jan. 15.
Insight: Barnes has averaged 29 minutes per game in 16 games since entering the starting lineup in place of Jared Dudley, but he's managed just 9.1 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.6 threes and 0.9 steals in that span.
Jamal Crawford, GHot2/23/2014 3:56:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard Jamal Crawford's tear continued as he scored 36 points Sunday at Oklahoma City.
Insight: That makes seven straight games with at least 21 points for Crawford, who has averaged 25.3 ppg in February. He'll continue to start at shooting guard for another few weeks with J.J. Redick sidelined.
Chris Paul, G2/23/2014 2:56:00 PM
Description: Clippers point guard Chris Paul's X-rays came back negative, according to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times.
Insight: Paul sprained his right thumb Friday night but was able to play Sunday against the Thunder.
Glen Davis, F2/23/2014 1:51:00 PM
Description: Glen Davis will sign with the Clippers when he clears waivers at 5 p.m. ET Sunday, according to Marc J. Spears of yahoosports.com.
Insight: The Magic bought out Davis' contract a few days ago. Davis averaged 30.1 minutes, 12.1 points and 6.3 rebounds per game with Orlando but he won't see nearly that much time as a backup to Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. Both players average 36 minutes per game, leaving 24 minutes for the reserves to share.
Chris Paul, G2/23/2014 12:04:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles guard Chris Paul (thumb) participated in shootaround Sunday with his right thumb taped and is expected to start against the Thunder, according to Arash Markazi of ESPN.

Chris Paul, G2/22/2014 5:04:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles guard Chris Paul (thumb) said there is "no question" he'll play Sunday against the Thunder.
Insight: Paul sprained his right thumb Friday night, but it doesn't look like he'll miss any time. Tough luck for anyone who picked up Darren Collison.
Chris Paul, G2/22/2014 10:53:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles guard Chris Paul sprained his right thumb in Friday's game against Memphis.
Insight: Paul could end up missing a few games because of the injury. If true Darren Collison will pick up his minutes and be a viable fantasy option. He's averaging 13.4 ppg, 2.6 rpg, 6.3 apg when starting for Paul this season.
Chris Paul, G2/21/2014 10:41:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles guard Chris Paul contributed 18 points, six boards and 14 assists in Friday night's loss to Memphis.
Insight: Paul only committed one turnover in his 39 minutes of court time. He didn't shoot the ball particularly well (4-for-13) but at least he made most of his free throws (9-of-11). Paul and the Clippers will be back in action Sunday against the Thunder.
Jamal Crawford, GHot2/19/2014 9:54:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Jamal Crawford has averaged 24.1 points, 4.0 assists, 2.3 rebounds, 2.1 threes and 1.9 steals in February.

Blake Griffin, FHot2/19/2014 9:50:00 AM
Description: Clippers forward Blake Griffin has scored 35 or more points in five of his last six games.
Insight: Griffin has put up 20 or more points in 14 straight games and averaged 30.1 points, 8.9 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.1 steals in that span. The power forward has taken his game to a superstar level this season.
J.J. Redick, G2/18/2014 7:19:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard J.J. Redick (hip, back, wrist) will miss the next 3-5 weeks, according to Ramona Shelburne of espnlosangeles.com.
Insight: Redick (15.7 ppg) last played on Feb. 5. He has been available for just 30 games this season due to his injuries. Jamal Crawford will continue to play most of the shooting guard minutes.
J.J. Redick, G2/17/2014 6:51:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard J.J. Redick will not play Tuesday, according to Janis Carr of the Orange County Register.
Insight: Redick (15.7 ppg) missed the last four games before the All-Star break with hip and back issues and he's not ready to play yet. Jamal Crawford will continue to pick up most of the shooting guard minutes.
J.J. Redick, G2/11/2014 2:40:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles shooting guard J.J. Redick won't be in the lineup Wednesday versus the Trail Blazers. SOURCE: Brad Turner, Los Angeles Times
Insight: Redick (15.7 ppg) has been battling back spasms as well as a sore hip. Hopefully he'll be back shortly after the All-Star break.
Blake Griffin, F2/9/2014 10:31:00 PM
Description: Clippers forward Blake Griffin left Sunday's game with a shin injury but was back on the court minutes later.
Insight: What matters most isn't Griffin's shin injury, which appears to pretty minor. It's that the Clippers got off to a massive 46-15 lead after one quarter and are now in total cruise control. That means we won't see much of Griffin or any of the starters in the second half. At least Griffin and company will be well-rested for their next game Wednesday against Portland.
Chris Paul, G2/9/2014 8:03:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles point guard Chris Paul is officially active for Sunday night's game against the 76ers. SOURCE: Ralph Lawler, Clippers play-by-play
Insight: Paul sat out a month with a separated shoulder. When healthy, he's the best point guard in fantasy hoops. Even if the Clippers are cautious with Paul (19.6 ppg, 11.2 apg, 2.4 spg, 4.6 rpg) at first, fantasy owners should still start him.
J.J. Redick, G2/9/2014 8:02:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard J.J. Redick is a no-go for Sunday's matchup with Philadelphia. SOURCE: Ralph Lawler, Clippers play-by-play
Insight: His hip is still bothering him. Redick's absence would hurt a whole lot more if Chris Paul wasn't also making his return from a separated shoulder on Sunday night.
Chris Paul, G2/8/2014 4:15:00 PM
Description: According to Eric Patten of Clippers.com, Los Angeles coach Doc Rivers said after Saturday's practice that he plans on playing Chris Paul (shoulder) Sunday.
Insight: Prior to practice, Rivers gave Paul a "50-50" chance of playing Sunday, but he reassessed the situation after Paul looked "great" in the session. The All-Star point guard suffered a separated shoulder on Jan. 3.
J.J. Redick, G2/7/2014 9:06:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles will be without shooting guard J.J. Redick on Friday night. SOURCE: Brad Turner, Los Angeles Times
Insight: It's the second game he's missed with a hip injury. Chris Paul (separated shoulder) will also be sidelined. Jamal Crawford (18.3 ppg) will make his 16th start of the year in Redick's place.
J.J. Redick, G2/7/2014 8:44:00 PM
Description: Dan Woike of the Orange County Register doesn't think we'll be seeing Clippers guard J.J. Redick on the court Friday against the Raptors.
Insight: Redick continues to be bothered by a hip issue. Jamal Crawford (18.3 ppg) should pick up most of his minutes.
J.J. Redick, G2/7/2014 11:22:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles shooting guard J.J. Redick didn't suit up Wednesday and is questionable for Friday's game against Toronto.
Insight: Redick has been out with a hip injury. Sixth man Jamal Crawford went off as his replacement against Miami with 31 points, three rebounds, six assists and three steals.
Chris Paul, G2/6/2014 6:18:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles guard Chris Paul is probable for Sunday's tilt against the Sixers. He's been out with a separated shoulder since January 3rd. SOURCE: Arash Markazi, ESPN Los Angeles
Insight: Paul (19.6 ppg, 11.2 apg, 4.6 rpg) could be on a minutes limit at first, so fantasy owners should wait before dropping Darren Collison. If Paul plays his usual 34.6 mpg right away, feel free to cut the cord on Collison.
Chris Paul, G2/5/2014 10:58:00 PM
Description: According to ESPN sideline reporter Lisa Salters, Clippers point guard Chris Paul could make his return from a separated shoulder as early as Sunday versus Philadelphia.
Insight: Paul hasn't appeared in a game since January 3rd. If he does return Sunday it will be about a week ahead of schedule. Darren Collison's fantasy value will take a major hit upon Paul's return.
J.J. Redick, G2/5/2014 9:30:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles shooting guard J.J. Redick won't suit up Wednesday against Miami. SOURCE: Kevin Arnovitz, ESPN
Insight: Redick is out with a hip injury. Sixth man Jamal Crawford (18.1 ppg) is going to see a ton of playing time in his absence.
DeAndre Jordan, CHot2/5/2014 1:49:00 PM
Description: Clippers center DeAndre Jordan has put together a string of 28 straight games with double-digit rebounds.
Insight: Jordan has averaged 14.9 boards per game during the streak and leads the NBA with 14 rebounds per game on the season. Going back further, he has grabbed at least 10 rebounds in 44 of the last 47 games. Jordan also leads the NBA in field-goal percentage (.651) and is averaging 9.7 points, 2.4 blocks and 1.0 steals per game. His one flaw is a .425 free-throw percentage on 4.2 attempts per game.
Sasha Vujacic, G2/3/2014 1:25:00 PM
Description: The Clippers have signed guard Sasha Vujacic to add some depth to their backcourt.
Insight: He should have no fantasy value.
Jamal Crawford, GHot2/2/2014 7:09:00 PM
Description: Clippers sixth man Jamal Crawford has been good for 20 ppg his last 28 games.
Insight: He had 27 points Saturday and has averaged 23.5 points, 4.2 assists, 2.8 threes and 2.5 rebounds his last 10 games. The 33-year-old's 18.1 ppg this season are his most since 2008-09, when he averaged 19.7 with the Knicks and Warriors.
Chris Paul, G1/30/2014 10:23:00 PM
Description: Clippers point guard Chris Paul (shoulder) is aiming to return either Feb. 7 or Feb. 9, according to Dan Woike of the Orange County Register.
Insight: Paul separated his shoulder and hasn't played since Jan. 3. Darren Collison fantasy owners should prepare for his value to drop off the table soon.
DeAndre Jordan, CHot1/30/2014 10:30:00 AM
Description: Clippers center DeAndre Jordan has averaged a season-high 15.0 rpg over 15 January games.
Insight: He's also averaging 10.7 ppg with nine double-doubles. His rebounding increase has allowed PF Blake Griffin to concentrate on scoring in the absence of All-Star PG Chris Paul.
Blake Griffin, FHot1/30/2014 10:26:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles Clippers power forward Blake Griffin has stepped up his game in Chris Paul's absence.
Insight: The four-time All-Star has averaged 25.2 ppg over his past 13 games as compared to 22.1 ppg with Paul in the lineup. He's also increased his assist average from 3.1 apg to 4.6 apg.
Chris Paul, G1/30/2014 10:19:00 AM
Description: Clippers point guard Chris Paul has been working out and shooting, but there is still no concrete timetable for his return from the separated shoulder.
Insight: Paul separated his shoulder earlier this month and was given a six-week timetable for his recovery which likely means a return after the All-Star break. The Clippers are a surprising 10-3 without CP3 which could lead to the team being conservative. Fantasy owners, however, hope he's back ASAP.
Jamal Crawford, GHot1/25/2014 9:53:00 PM
Description: Clippers sixth man Jamal Crawford poured in 37 points and also had 11 assists, five threes and two steals over 32 minutes Saturday at Toronto.
Insight: In his last 11 games, Crawford has averaged 22 ppg. He's also been taking on more of a role distributing the basketball, putting up 5.3 apg in that timeframe.
J.J. Redick, G1/25/2014 8:53:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard J.J. Redick returned to Saturday's game after leaving due to back spasms.
Insight: Redick left early in the first quarter but was able to start the third quarter.
J.J. Redick, G1/25/2014 7:55:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard J.J. Redick left Saturday's game due to lower back spasms and is questionable to return.
Insight: Redick only played four minutes and had two points before exiting. Jamal Crawford is on fire so the team has no reason to rush Redick back to the game.
Blake Griffin, F1/25/2014 10:37:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles power forward Blake Griffin was within striking distance of his fourth career triple-double Saturday in a win over the Bulls.
Insight: He finished the night with 26 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists. The four-time All-Star has netted at least 23 points in seven of his last eight contests.
Darren Collison, G1/24/2014 7:55:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard Darren Collison will be in the starting lineup Friday night against Chicago. SOURCE: Brad Turner, Los Angeles Times
Insight: Collison (9.5 ppg, 3.0 apg) has been bothered by a toe injury but it hasn't caused him to miss any time. He'll continue to fill in at point guard while Chris Paul recovers from a separated shoulder.
Blake Griffin, F1/23/2014 9:35:00 PM
Description: Clippers forward Blake Griffin will start for the Western Conference in the All-Star Game on February 16th.
Insight: Griffin has been to the All-Star Game every year he's been in the league. This season, he's averaging a career-high 22.6 ppg on 52.4 percent shooting. He's also averaging double-digit rebounds (10.0 rpg).
Darren Collison, G1/23/2014 6:49:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles point guard Darren Collison has been playing with a sprained toe. SOURCE: NBA.com
Insight: It's his left big toe. Collison (9.5 ppg) has been starting in Chris Paul's place. If the injury gets any worse, the unproven Darius Morris (4.6 ppg) may have to fill in at point guard.
Chris Paul, G1/22/2014 7:31:00 PM
Description: Clippers point guard Chris Paul is hoping to play in next month's All-Star Game. SOURCE: ESPN Los Angeles
Insight: Paul separated his shoulder earlier this month and was given a six-week timetable for his recovery. The All-Star Game will be held on February 16th in New Orleans.

Description: Los Angeles Clippers guard J.J. Redick bounced back from shooting 7-of-28 from the field the last two games with 20 points on 5-of-9 shooting Monday at Detroit.
Insight: Redick suffered a cut on his knee Saturday, when he made just 4-of-17 at Indiana, but he should be fine.
DeAndre Jordan, CHot1/20/2014 4:06:00 PM
Description: Clippers center DeAndre Jordan pulled down a season-high 21 rebounds against the Pistons on Monday afternoon.
Insight: He also added 16 points and four blocked shots. Saturday was Jordan's 20th double-double of the season. He only had 12 of those in 2012-13.
J.J. Redick, GCold1/20/2014 10:05:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles Clippers guard J.J. Redick is dealing with a knee contusion that seems to have affected his shooting touch.

DeAndre Jordan, C1/19/2014 9:20:00 AM
Description: Clippers center DeAndre Jordan continues to be a rebounding machine. Saturday against the Pacers, he absorbed 17 boards in 39 minutes of action.

Description: Clippers shooting guard Jamal Crawford scored one point per minute Friday against the Knicks, putting up 29 points in 29 minutes.

Description: Clippers power forward Blake Griffin has averaged 26.4 points per game in his last 16 contests.

Hedo Turkoglu, F1/16/2014 6:06:00 PM
Description: The Clippers finalized a contract with Hedo Turkoglu on Thursday, according to nba.com.
Insight: He gives the Clippers some depth but not much else. Turkoglu (2.9 ppg for the Magic in 2012-13) is unlikely to be of much use to fantasy owners in his return to the NBA.
J.J. Redick, GHot1/16/2014 11:04:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles guard J.J. Redick has been spectacular since returning from a wrist injury that kept him out for more than a month.

J.J. Redick, G1/9/2014 9:38:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles guard J.J. Redick has been cleared to return Friday against the Lakers. He's missed the last month and a half with a torn ligament in his wrist. SOURCE: NBA.com
Insight: Redick can be counted on for about 15 points and a couple of three-pointers most nights. Jamal Crawford might not see as many minutes with Redick back in the lineup but he still has use in most fantasy leagues while Chris Paul recovers from a shoulder injury.
J.J. Redick, G1/8/2014 9:28:00 PM
Description: Clippers shooting guard J.J. Redick could make his return from a broken hand Friday against the Lakers. SOURCE: Clippers on Twitter
Insight: Redick won't be available for Wednesday night's game against the Celtics. His return will probably bump Jamal Crawford (16.6 ppg) out of the starting five.
Stephen Jackson, F1/7/2014 4:44:00 PM
Description: According to beat reporter Madelyn Burke, the Clippers have waived Stephen Jackson.
Insight: The team needed a roster spot to sign a guard with Chris Paul out for six weeks. Jackson averaged 12 minutes, 1.7 points and 1.1 rebounds in nine games with Los Angeles.
J.J. Redick, G1/7/2014 4:30:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles guard J.J. Redick (hand) is expected to miss at least one more week, according to ESPN.
Insight: Redick hasn't played since breaking his hand on Nov. 29. He was averaging 15.8 points, 2.0 assists, 2.2 rebounds and 1.9 threes per game while shooting .460/.927 FG/FT before the injury and should be owned in all leagues. He'll probably get some minutes at point guard when he returns with Chris Paul out six weeks.
J.J. Redick, G1/6/2014 10:55:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles guard J.J. Redick has been in a soft cast for about a week and could be back before the original 6-8 week timetable.

Chris Paul, G1/5/2014 7:51:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles guard Chris Paul was diagnosed with a Grade-3 shoulder separation on Sunday. He could miss up to six weeks. SOURCE: Marc Stein, ESPN
Insight: The good news is that he won't require surgery. For now, the Clippers will roll with Darren Collison at point guard. Collison has averaged 8.6 ppg in 36 games this season.
DeAndre Jordan, C1/4/2014 9:08:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles center DeAndre Jordan put up a career-high 25 points, 18 rebounds and three blocks Friday at Dallas.
Insight: Jordan is now tied with Kevin Love for the NBA lead in rebounds with 13.5 per game. With 9.4 ppg, 2.3 bpg, 1.0 spg to boot, Jordan is a solid fantasy center as long as you account for his .396 free-throw percentage.
Chris Paul, G1/4/2014 9:03:00 AM
Description: Clippers point guard Chris Paul will miss 3-5 weeks with a separated right shoulder, according to Yahoo! Sports. He'll receive an MRI on Sunday or Monday to determine the severity of the injury.

Chris Paul, G1/3/2014 10:18:00 PM
Description: Clippers point guard Chris Paul suffered a sprained right shoulder Friday against Dallas and will not return, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.
Insight: Darren Collison would inherit the starting job if Paul had to miss a significant period of time. Collison is averaging 8.1 ppg in just 18.5 mpg this season.
Chris Paul, GHot12/29/2013 10:17:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles point guard Chris Paul had it all working Saturday night against Utah.
Insight: Paul (21 points, ten boards, nine assists) needed one more assist for a triple-double. He also led the team with five steals. Paul's double-double streak is at six in a row. Look for him to make it seven straight Monday against Phoenix.
Blake Griffin, FHot12/29/2013 10:13:00 AM
Description: Clippers power forward Blake Griffin was magnificent Saturday in a win against the Jazz.
Insight: He accounted for 40 of his team's 98 points. Though he did commit a season-high eight turnovers, Griffin made up for it by shooting 13-of-20 from the field. Usually Griffin's percentage from the charity stripe is in the mid-60s but he shot 82.4 percent from that distance on Saturday (14-of-17).
Jamal Crawford, GHot12/27/2013 9:24:00 AM
Description: Clippers shooting guard Jamal Crawford is averaging an even 20 ppg over his last nine games.

Insight: Griffin had 35 points and 11 boards and has averaged 26.5 ppg and 11.7 rpg over his last six games.
DeAndre Jordan, C12/23/2013 9:53:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles center DeAndre Jordan only scored four points on Sunday but he made up for it by delivering 17 rebounds.
Insight: Jordan's rebounding numbers have been off the chart this season (13.1 rpg). Unfortunately, he's shooting just 40.7 percent from the line and his 1.6 turnover per game average is a career-worst. He also has a tendency to get in foul trouble (3.3 fouls per game) but so do most centers. Even on a bad night, Jordan remains a double-double threat.
Blake Griffin, F12/23/2013 9:48:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles forward Blake Griffin contributed 32 points and 10 boards in Sunday's win over Minesota.
Insight: He also had four steals. Griffin drilled 10 of his 11 free throw tries and is shooting a noticeably better 68.8 percent from the line this season. Last season, he only shot 66 percent from that distance. Overall, Griffin's 20.9 ppg scoring average is almost a three-point improvement from last season (18.0 ppg).

He'll have to play with goggles for a few weeks. Barnes was averaging 20 minutes per game before the injury but could see more time with J.J. Redick (wrist) still out.
Jamal Crawford, GHot12/22/2013 10:38:00 AM
Description: Clippers shooting guard Jamal Crawford made 10-of-20 from the field, including 6-of-12 from 3-point range, and scored 27 points Saturday against the Nuggets.

DeAndre Jordan, CHot12/19/2013 9:25:00 AM
Description: Clippers center DeAndre Jordan led the way with 20 rebounds Wednesday against New Orleans.
Insight: Jordan has collected double-digit rebounds in 11 of his last 12 games including four straight. The 25-year-old also swatted away five shots on Wednesday, his most in a game since his nine-block effort in Sacramento last month. Jordan pretty much only scores on dunks and layups, which helps his percentage considerably (76.9 percent shooting this month). He's a top-five fantasy center.

Description: Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan (foot) had 11 points and 21 rebounds in 39 minutes Monday at Philadelphia.

Insight: Crawford is already making his case for Sixth Man of the Year. In 17 games, he's averaging just under 16 ppg while making a little over 46 percent of his field goals. His value will subside a bit when Chris Paul and J.J. Redick return from injuries but for now, Crawford is a must-start in fantasy hoops.
