Ty Wallace will be inactive for Wednesday’s tilt against the Rockets.
Wallace and C.J. Williams each have just one day left on their two-way deals so the Clippers want to give Williams another shot to see what he can do before committing to one for the rest of the season. Whichever player makes the best case could have decent value this season with Avery Bradley’s injury troubles. But are both only deeper league options when everyone is healthy. Right now Wallace is the more likely of the two with his recent strong play (top-80 over the last three games).

Isaiah Hartenstein couldn't gain traction at the NBA level, delivering fantasy value just outside top-300 despite another big campaign in the G League.
Thabo SefoloshaSF, Houston Rockets
Thabo Sefolosha closed the book on his 2019-20 season with top-375/355 value (8/9-cat).

July 11, 2020, 2:10 pmChris ClemonsPG, Houston Rockets
Chris Clemons was able to sneak inside the top-400 in the 2019-20 fantasy season.
Clemons had some nice moments when Russell Westbrook and James Harden (or both) were out of the lineup but ultimately he was Houston's third option at PG. He did knock down 1.1 triples in just 8.7 mpg, so he fits Houston's system, but he's not someone to keep track of outside of extremely deep leagues.
July 11, 2020, 1:58 pmDeMarre CarrollSF, Houston Rockets
DeMarre Carroll fell way off the map in 2019-20, seeing action in only 21 games between the Spurs and the Rockets.
Carroll got his act together in Brooklyn after a poor run following a big contract with the Raptors, so it's surprising to see how quickly he was out of an NBA rotation. After 140 games and 80 starts across two seasons with the Nets, Carroll signed with San Antonio after they were spurned by Marcus Morris. He was never a consistent member of the rotation and signed with Houston after being bought out. He has the 3-and-D profile that fits with the Rockets' style but is only an emergency depth piece. After a couple years of standard-league appeal, DC finished as a top-450 player. His next landing spot will determine his fantasy outlook but standard-league GMs don't need to be waiting eagerly for Carroll's next move.
July 11, 2020, 1:48 pmTyson ChandlerC, Houston Rockets
Tyson Chandler was a non-factor in 2019-20, setting career-lows with 26 games and just 8.4 minutes per contest.
Chandler's been in decline for a few years now and playing for a team that is all-in on center-less basketball was the death knell for his deep-league appeal. Chandler could be a decent source of rebounds on strong percentages from the field in even modest minutes but it looks like his days as a fantasy asset are over.
July 11, 2020, 1:34 pmMichael Frazier IISG, Houston Rockets
Michael Frazier logged eight games with the Rockets in 2019-20, finishing as a top-475 fantasy option.
It's hard to judge any player who gets so little run, but Frazier managed 0.3 steals and 0.3 triples in just 8.2 mpg. That may bode well for his long-term future as a potential fantasy option in deep leagues, but we can cross that bridge when he carves out a full rotation spot.
July 11, 2020, 1:30 pmWilliam HowardF, Houston Rockets
William Howard made just two appearances in his first NBA season, placing him outside fantasy's top-510.
There were only 514 players who showed up in the fantasy season, but Howard's lack of playing time is more to blame than anything. Howard previously played at the top level in France and made the Jazz roster as the 15th man to open the year. He was waived in October and signed to a two-way contract with the Rockets in late December. He has a solid track record of 3-point shooting but can't be considered a fantasy option next year.
July 11, 2020, 11:43 amRyan BroekhoffSF, Philadelphia Sixers
Ryan Broekhoff (personal) did not travel with the team to Disney and his status for the restart is uncertain.
Broekhoff was picked up by the Sixers a couple of weeks ago as emergency depth. He played 10.8 minutes per game for the Mavs this season prior to being cut in favor of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and sported per-36 numbers of 14.2 points, 8.6 rebounds and 4.0 triples. Hopefully all is well with the second-year wing from Austrailia.
