Fresh off a five-game absence due to a sprained ankle, DeAndre Jordan picked up right where he left off and notched 15 points and 14 rebounds while shooting 7-of-13 from the free throw line in Wednesday’s loss.
It’s good to see Jordan back even if there isn’t much to say about his fantasy game. He is what he is at this point and seems far less likely to undergo a mid-career skillset change than some of the other bigs of his ilk. It’d help the Clippers immensely if he added a little something, but fantasy owners can bank on DJ finishing in the middle rounds as a category-winner in rebounds and field goal percentage who blocks his fair share of shots while also tanking free throws. As for the guys that held the fort down in his absence, Montrezl Harrell went for 10 points and seven rebounds in 18 minutes while Willie Reed was scoreless in two minutes. Harrell can be held in 16-team leagues given his strong per-minute production but owners in shallower formats can move on.
