Los Angeles Clippers Player News: All Positions

News: Morris averaged 9.0 points on just 36.6 percent shooting in nine games since the All-Star break.
Impact: The Clippers acquired Morris from New York before the deadline, but he was somewhat of a disappointment prior to the suspension of the season. Morris scored in double-digits in five of his first six games with the Clippers, but over his last six games, he shot just 33.3 percent from the field, including 20.7 percent from beyond the arc (4.8 3PA/G). In a high-profile loss to the Lakers on Mar. 8, Morris scored just one point on 0-of-9 shooting in 29 minutes.
News: Mann underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a ligament in his right hand, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Impact: Mann suffered the injury March 8 while playing in the G League. He does not have an immediate timetable for a return. However, it's possible the team will provide updates on his recovery even while play is suspended.
News: Jackson tallied 16 points (6-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four assists and one block across 19 minutes Tuesday in the Clippers' 131-107 win over the Warriors.
Impact: The scoring total led the Los Angeles bench and was Jackson's best output since he signed with the Clippers shortly after the All-Star break. The nearly flawless shooting from the field and three-point range was nice, but it is in no way consistently repeatable for the typically inefficient guard. He's converting at just a 41.6 percent clip from the field overall this season.
News: Leonard had 23 points (9-14 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five assists, four rebounds and two steals in 25 minutes during Tuesday's 131-107 victory over Golden State.
Impact: Leonard barely got out of second gear as the Clippers dominated from start to finish Tuesday. None of the starters played more than 25 minutes, limiting the production across the board. With that being said, Leonard still managed to lead the way with 23 points, continuing to be one of the most consistent producers available. The Clippers have a back-to-back set coming up, so those with shares in Leonard should be preparing for him to sit one of those two games.
News: Beverley finished with 15 points (5-10 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes during Tuesday's 131-107 victory over the Warriors.
Impact: Beverley continues to see reduced minutes as he works his way back from injury. The Clippers are going to be very careful moving forward given Beverley's assumed importance for the upcoming playoffs. The arrival of Reggie Jackson has given the Clippers more freedom in terms of being able to limit Beverley, which is great for their finals chances but disappointing when it comes to his fantasy value.
News: Green amassed 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt), 10 rebounds and two assists in Tuesday's 131-107 victory over the Warriors.
Impact: Green was able to deliver his most productive game in quite some time as the Clippers blew out the Warriors. The playing time was all over the place, allowing many of the bench guys to put up strong numbers. Green is an every-night part of the rotation but is typically relied upon to do very little on a Clippers team brimming with talent. Outside of deeper formats, Green has basically no lasting value.
News: Noah (Not Injury Related) will not be active for Tuesday's matchup with the Warriors, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Impact: Noah traveled with the team to Golden State, but his debut will have to wait. His next chance to suit up with the Clippers for the first time will come Friday against the Nets.
News: Williams (calf) will not play Tuesday against the Warriors, Andrew Greif of the LA Times reports.
Impact: It'll be just the fourth absence of the season for Williams, who's coming off of a rough outing against the Lakers on Sunday in which he had just seven points on 3-of-11 shooting. Landry Shamet figures to benefit most from Williams' absence.
News: Noah (not injury-related) will travel with the Clippers ahead of Tuesday's game against Golden State, though it's unclear whether he'll play, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.
Impact: Noah has yet to practice with the team, so while he may technically be available for Tuesday's clash, the team could hold him out until Friday against the Nets. An update should come closer to tipoff.
News: Harrell scored 20 points (7-10 FG, 6-11 FT) while adding eight rebounds, two blocks and an assist in 34 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 112-103 loss to the Lakers.
Impact: The 26-year-old big continues to be the anchor of the Clippers' second unit. Harrell has scored at least 16 points in eight of the last nine games, averaging 18.6 points, 8.0 boards, 1.6 blocks and 1.3 assists over that stretch.
News: Leonard scored 27 points (9-18 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 7-8 FT) while adding two rebounds and a block in 37 minutes during Sunday's 112-103 loss to the Lakers.
Impact: It was an uncharacteristically quiet night for Kawhi outside of his scoring, and the first time all season he'd failed to record at least one assist, but he still delivered at least 25 points for the fourth straight game and the ninth time in his last 11. Leonard is averaging 26.6 points, 6.8 boards, 3.9 assists, 2.1 threes and 1.5 steals over that stretch.
News: George scored a game-high 31 points (9-16 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 10-11 FT) while adding six rebounds, three assists, three steals and a block in 37 minutes during Sunday's 112-103 loss to the Lakers.
Impact: Both teams leaned heavily on their stars, as only three Clippers scored in double digits but all three (George, Kawhi Leonard and Montrezl Harrell) delivered at least 20 points. George's 30 was his best performance since Jan. 5, and over his last dozen contests he's averaging 26.5 points, 5.2 boards, 3.8 assists, 2.6 threes and 1.3 steals over that stretch.
News: Coffey totaled 26 points (9-19 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-5 FT), two rebounds, three assists and three steals in Friday's G League loss to Texas.
Impact: Coffey is back in the G League after spending much of the past month with the parent club. He is averaging 15.7 points per game across 15 contests with Agua Caliente.
News: George racked up 13 points (5-13 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 3-5 FT), nine rebounds and seven assists in 30 minutes during Thursday's 120-105 win at Houston.
Impact: George's scoring figures might have been disappointing, but the compensated a rough shooting night with a strong performance both on the boards and distributing the ball. George hasn't reached the 20-point mark in four of his last six games and seems to be trending in the wrong direction of late with averages of just 15.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game during that six-game stretch.
News: Leonard posted 25 points (8-15 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 5-9 FT), six rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block in 28 minutes during Thursday's 120-105 win at Houston.
Impact: Leonard scored 25 points for the second straight games, and he's now reached that mark in three straight games. In fact, Leonard has topped the 20-point plateau in eight of his last nine games and, considering he also provides value in other areas of the game aside from scoring, he remains an excellent fantasy contributor across the board.
News: Zubac went for 17 points (6-6 FG, 5-6 FT), 12 rebounds and one block in 20 minutes during Thursday's 120-105 win at Houston.
Impact: Zubac is not known for his offensive contributions, to the point that he's topped the 15-point plateau just twice this season. In fact, the 17 points were a season-high mark for the big man, who continues to produce in other areas such as rebounds and field goal percentages with enough consistency to remain fantasy relevant.
News: Jackson posted seven points (3-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt), three assists and two rebounds across 25 minutes during Tuesday's 109-94 victory over the Thunder.
Impact: While the Clippers got the win, Jackson had his worst performance since joining the team, shooting inefficiently while committing four turnovers to three assists. His struggles can likely be attributed to the tough backcourt defense of the Thunder, who have Chris Paul and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander hounding ballhandlers.
News: Beverley posted three points (1-6 FG, 1-5 3Pt), three assists and two rebounds across 20 minutes during Tuesday's 109-94 win over the Thunder.
Impact: Beverley hasn't looked like himself lately, and it's possible he's still feeling the effects of a recent groin injury. Over the past three games, he's just 1-for-10 from the field and hasn't racked up a steal or a block. He'll look to bounce back Thursday against the Rockets in Houston.
News: Shamet finished with zero points (0-4 FG, 0-4 3Pt), one rebound and one assist in 14 minutes during Tuesday's 109-94 win over the Thunder.
Impact: Shamet had earned 20-plus minutes in 21 straight games prior to the first two tilts in March, in which he has combined for three points in 29 minutes. The recent addition of Reggie Jackson, who saw 25 minutes in this one, provides another obstacle to Shamet earning substantial playing time on a nightly basis. Still, he'll look to bounce back during Thursday's matchup versus the Rockets.
News: Patterson scored three points (1-1 FG, 1-1 3Pt) in three minutes during Tuesday's 109-94 win over the Thunder.
Impact: Patterson has seen no more than eight minutes in six straight showings dating back to Jan. 30. It's rare that he cracks the rotation at all, let alone makes an impact. As such, Patterson can be left on waiver wires.
News: Williams went off for 24 points (8-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 5-8 FT), eight assists, two rebounds and one steal in 28 minutes during Sunday's 136-130 win over the 76ers.
Impact: Williams produced an impressive and efficient stat line, posting twice as many points as field-goal attempts. For a short while it seemed as though the addition of Reggie Jackson might be a threat to Williams given the team already has several other quality guards in Patrick Beverley and Landry Shamet, but every one of them including Williams is capable of sliding over to shooting guard. As a result, Williams seems likely to continue being a strong option across all fantasy formats.
News: Harrell provided 24 points (7-12 FG, 10-13 FT), nine rebounds, one steal and one block in 28 minutes during Sunday's 136-130 win over the 76ers.
Impact: Harrell dominated Philadelphia's second unit, earning trip after trip to the charity stripe and finishing with twice as many points as field-goal attempts. It was a superb showing for Harrell, and he'll look to provide more of the same in Tuesday's tilt against the Thunder.
News: George registered 24 points (8-13 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four rebounds, two steals and one assist in 30 minutes during Sunday's 136-130 win over the 76ers.
Impact: George has scored 24 in consecutive contests while combining for just 28 field-goal attempts. He had combined for only 33 points on 46 field-goal attempts across the four matchups immediately prior to these last two tilts, and George will look to stay hot heading into Tuesday's road bout versus the Thunder.
News: Leonard accumulated 30 points (10-20 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 8-9 FT), six rebounds, three assists and one steal in 34 minutes during Sunday's 136-130 win over the 76ers.
Impact: Leonard was efficient offensively, scoring at least 30 for the third time in the last six games. He cooled off a bit in February after a scorching hot January, but apart from rest days there's very little that can slow him down from a fantasy perspective.
News: The Clippers recalled Kabengele from the G League's Agua Caliente Clippers on Sunday, Mirjam Swanson of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Impact: Kabengele rejoins the parent club after playing 19 minutes for Agua Caliente in its 123-118 loss to the South Bay Lakers on Saturday, finishing the contest with 19 points (7-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, four steals, one assist and one block. He's unlikely to see the floor in Sunday's game against the 76ers unless the contest turns into a blowout.
News: The Clippers recalled Mann from the G League's Agua Caliente Clippers on Sunday, Mirjam Swanson of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Impact: Mann will be available for the parent club in Sunday's game against the 76ers after a productive showing for the G League affiliate Saturday. In Agua Caliente's 123-118 loss to the South Bay Lakers, Mann tallied 23 points (8-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 13 rebounds and six assists in 34 minutes.
News: Green played 23 minutes off the bench Friday in the Clippers' 132-103 win over the Nuggets, recording seven points (3-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist and one block.
Impact: Green didn't notice much variation in his role throughout February, appearing in all 11 of the Clippers' games on the month while playing between 12 and 24 minutes in those contests. That level of playing time limits his appeal largely to deeper fantasy leagues, though he can occasionally offer some level of intrigue as a streaming option in 14- or 16-team formats on days when Paul George and/or Kawhi Leonard are sitting out.
News: McGruder put up seven points (3-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt) over five minutes Friday in the Clippers' 132-103 win over the Nuggets.
Impact: After converting only seven field-goal attempts combined in the Clippers' prior eight contests, McGruder nearly managed half that total in the limited run he received Friday. The swingman didn't appear in the Clippers' previous game Wednesday in Phoenix, and he didn't check into Friday's contest until 4:32 remained in the fourth quarter, when Los Angeles was leading by 25. Based on his recent usage, McGruder doesn't look like he's viewed as a member of coach Doc Rivers' regular rotation at this point.
News: Williams totaled 17 points (6-12 FG, 5-7 3Pt), seven assists, two rebounds and a steal across 22 minutes in Friday's 132-103 win over the Nuggets.
Impact: With the Clippers finally at full health, Williams should remain in his usual role with the second unit, further solidifying his reputation as one of the best sixth-men in the business. Sweet Lou's veteran presence and playmaking ability have proven to be invaluable to the Clippers, especially as they struggled through the litany of injuries that plagued them this season.
News: Leonard produced 19 points (6-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 6-8 FT), five assists, two rebounds and two steals across 25 minutes in Friday's 132-103 win over the Nuggets.
Impact: Leonard's slight dip in production didn't matter on Friday, as coach Doc Rivers was able to enjoy a fully-healthy roster for only the seventh time this season. A full complement of players takes the pressure off Leonard, and although they'll continue to fight for the best playoff seed possible, it's reasonable to expect some rest days ahead for the All-Star as the playoffs approach.
News: Harrell produced 18 points (7-12 FG, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists and three blocked shots across 20 minutes in Friday's 132-103 win over the Nuggets.
Impact: Harrell remains the more effective component of the one-two punch that he shares with Ivica Zubac. In this lopsided affair, the veteran center ceded a bit more time to other role players but still recorded his fourth double-double over five games.
News: George compiled 14 points (9-15 FG, 6-8 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists across 25 minutes in Friday's 1342-103 win over the Nuggets.
Impact: The Clippers entered this fight for second place with a fully-healthy lineup for only the seventh time this season, and the crowd inside the Staples Center were treated with a blowout game. Although George's court time was capped at 25 minutes, he led the team in scoring. Even though the team was injury-free Friday, George's health will continue to be a vital issue in the home stretch. As the playoffs approach, we may see both George and Leonard get a few days off, which is obviously bad news for seasonal players who own these elite targets.
