December 30, 2018, 12:15 amPaul MillsapF, Denver Nuggets
Paul Millsap (broken toe) returned to action in Saturday's win over the Suns, scoring six points on 3-of-7 shooting with one assist and one block in 14 minutes off the bench.
It's a real quiet and slow line and forgive us for putting the tin foil hat on and wondering why he only saw 14 minutes. Sure, they could have him on a very comfortable incline, but it could also be indicative of his injury risk or at worst it could be a stop sign in his recovery process. There's no reason to act on any of the above, it's just food for thought.
July 12, 2020, 3:01 pmTerance MannPG, Los Angeles Clippers
Terrance Mann has a promising season with the Clippers before it was cut short due to a right hand injury.
Mann played 35 games with the Clippers this season and even started multiple games for them this season. He averaged just 1.6 points, 0.9 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 7.7 minutes for the Clippers and will likely stay with their G-League affiliate through the offseason. Heading into next year's drafts he shouldn't be considered.
July 12, 2020, 2:55 pmMfiondu KabengeleC, Los Angeles Clippers
Mfiondu Kabengele didn't spend much time with the Clippers NBA team this season but played heavy minutes with their G-League affiliate, the Agua Caliente Clippers.
He was the Caliente Clippers' third highest scorer with 18.7 points per game and contributed heavily to their 22 wins this season. In 31.3 minutes, Kabengele put up 9.3 rebounds and 1.9 blocks while also shooting 32.7 percent from beyond the arc. The 6'9' 250-lb big man only played 12 games with the LA Clippers, so his fantasy value was basically nonexistent. However, he has potential to make a splash next season if the Clippers continue to lack length heading into next year.
July 12, 2020, 2:48 pmPatrick PattersonPF, Los Angeles Clippers
Patrick Patterson was not a valuable fantasy asset for owners this season with the Clippers.
Patterson finished outside of the top-350 in 9-cat leagues and almost slipped outside of the top-400 in 8-cat leagues. He wasn't worth owning for most of the season, finishing with averages of 4.6 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.1 3-pointers on 40.4 percent shooting. He only attempted 3.7 shots per game and was an afterthought in the Clippers offense, just as he should be heading into next season's drafts.
July 12, 2020, 2:34 pmLandry ShametSG, Los Angeles Clippers
Landry Shamet finished outside of the top-210 in both 8 and 9-cat leagues this season with the Clippers.
Shamet played 27.5 minutes per game and served as a crucial piece of the Clippers backcourt rotation. However, when he was on the court his main role was to be a spot-up shooter which limited the amount of time that he had the ball. He put up 9.7 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.9 assists on 41.6 percent shooting. He only attempted 7.5 shots per game and didn't provide owners with anything outside of 3-pointers. He's more of a specialist guy than anything else and nothing should change going into next season.
July 12, 2020, 2:25 pmIvica ZubacC, Los Angeles Clippers
Ivica Zubac finished as a top-175 player in 9-cat leagues during his first full season with the Clippers.
Zubac served as the Clippers primary center in most lineups although he only played 18.1 minutes per game. In 64 games, the 23-year old big put up 8.0 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists on 59.9 percent shooting from the field. If he could improve on that field goal percentage and perform well during the playoffs, he could be in for a larger role next season. One of the Clippers' biggest issues has been length on the court but Zubac's emergence could silence the doubters. He could be a steal for owners in the later rounds of drafts next season.
July 12, 2020, 2:07 pmPatrick BeverleyPG, Los Angeles Clippers
Patrick Beverley finished just inside of the top-115 in 9-cat leagues despite missing 16 games.
Beverley dealt with injuries all throughout the season and was on pace to put up his second season with the Clippers playing less than 70 games. He began to share time with Reggie Jackson once he joined the time and finished the season averaging 7.9 points, 5.4 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.6 triples on 42.8 percent shooting. He was dropped onto the waiver wire in most leagues and heading into next season his outlook doesn't look too much better.
July 12, 2020, 1:58 pmDwight HowardC, Los Angeles Lakers
Both Danny Green and Dwight Howard will practice with the Lakers on Sunday after missing Saturday's practice.
Howard needed one more day of quarantining since he got to Orlando later than the other Lakers players and Green had a hiccup in his testing. With both players seemingly healthy, they will join their team on the practice court on Sunday.

July 12, 2020, 1:55 pmMarcus MorrisPF, Los Angeles Clippers
Marcus Morris's value took a significant hit when he joined the Clippers, putting up sub-200 value during his time in LA.
Morris was the 71st ranked player in 9-cat leagues and the 81st ranked player in 8-cat leagues during his time with the Knicks. He was their primary shot taker and the lack of talent on the Knicks' roster allowed him to have the ultimate green light. As a member of the Clippers, Morris was outside of the top-200 in both 8 and 9-cat and severely hurt owners who believed he would continue to flourish alongside Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. In 28.4 minutes, Morris put up 9.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.4 triples on 38.6 percent shooting from the field. If he performs well in the playoffs, Morris could carve out a larger role for next season but based off of his performance with the Clippers, he shouldn't be considered with anymore than a late-mid round pick with upside.
July 12, 2020, 1:30 pmKawhi LeonardSF, Los Angeles Clippers
Kawhi Leonard managed to finish as a top-3 player in 9-cat leagues in his first season with the Los Angeles Clippers.
Leonard finished with averages of 26.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.1 triples on 46.9 percent shooting. He only missed 13 games this season and still put up top-10 total value in both 8 and 9-cat leagues. In his first year with the Clippers alongside Paul George, Leonard proved that he will continue to be amongst the fantasy elite. Going into next year's drafts he should undoubtedly be considered a high first round pick.
July 12, 2020, 1:43 amVictor OladipoSG, Indiana Pacers
Victor Oladipo played only 13 games in 2019-20 after 12-month absence.
Taking only the 13-game stint into consideration, Oladipo posted top 200/250 per-game value for 8/9 cat leagues which is a far cry from his top-10 performance in 2017-18 but is also completely unfair to judge on such a small sample after a long hiatus while recovering from injury. He flashed his tremendous upside in his last game of the season against the Celtics on March 10 with 27 points, five triples, seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block while shooting 56.3 percent from the floor. He has ruled himself out of coming back for the restart this season and will turn his focus on trying to return next year stronger than ever.
