Shamet (wrist) registered seven points (2-10 FG, 1-8 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and two steals across 37 minutes during the Clippers' 102-87 preseason loss to the Mavericks on Thursday.
Despite the fact he was removed from the injury report earlier in the day, Shamet may have still been somewhat affected by his wrist issue if his final shooting line was any indication. The second-year guard has scuffled this preseason, but he'll now turn his attention to next Tuesday's regular-season opener against the Lakers, when he'll look to waste no time contributing some of the long-range buckets he proved quite adept at during his rookie season (42.2 percent shooting from three-point range).
Shamet (wrist) has been removed from the team's injury report and should be available for Thursday's game against Dallas.
Shamet has been nursing a wrist injury, but the team removing him from the injury report is a sign he's ready to roll. The Clippers may monitor his minutes closely Thursday night as a precaution.
Shamet suffered a wrist injury in Sunday's preseason game against Melbourne, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.
The injury is apparently minor, as Shamet insisted he was fine following the conclusion of Sunday's exhibition. But his status is still worth monitoring leading up to Thursday's preseason game against the Mavericks, especially since the Clippers already cancelled practice for Monday.
Shamet tallied three points (1-8 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 0-3 FT), eight assists, two rebounds, and one steal in 21 minutes during Sunday's c127-87 preseason victory over the Shanghai Sharks.
Shamet struggled to get anything going on the offensive end during Sunday's convincing victory. He hit just one of his eight shot attempts while missing three straight from the free-throw line. He did, however, add a team-high eight assists. This is something that could add to Shamet's overall value should he be able to consistently drop some dimes. He is primarily a three-point streaming option at this stage and would need to add to his production to have any real value.
