    Ian Clark is reportedly joining Xinjiang Flying Tigers of the Chinese CBA.

    Clark played 59 games for the Pelicans this past season and finished the season strong. Clark's NBA market never materialized this summer, and it seems as though he went with the bigger overseas paycheck. If there is an NBA clause in his contract, we should see Clark resurface again.

    Ian Clark scored 20 points on 8-of-22 field goals over 38 minutes, adding three treys and four dimes in Tuesday's finale vs. the Warriors.

    Clark finished with a flourish as the Pelicans gave him over 30 minutes in each of the last six games of the season. In that time, he put up late-round value, but the story is different for the whole season, of course. Clark played in 59 games and was in 350-375 ranking territory for his per-game value.

    Ian Clark poured in a season-high 31 points in Sunday's win over the Kings, adding seven 3-pointers, four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks.

    Clark's been forced into the limelight because the Pelicans have about eight healthy players left, only two of whom are shooting guards. He's good to use if you need scoring and threes. Tonight's extra production is not to be expected again, but the sheer volume Clark will receive means it's not entirely out of the question.

    Ian Clark posted a well-rounded line on Friday with 24 points, four assists, four rebounds, four 3-pointers, two steals and a block in 40 minutes.

    The overtime period and a plethora of injuries to the likes of Frank Jackson and Stanley Johnson lead to a season-high minutes total for Clark. The guard is averaging 17.3 points per game and 2.7 threes per game over the last week and can be streamed for points and threes if needed.

  • Stanley Johnson
    F, New Orleans Pelicans

    Stanley Johnson (left ankle contusion) will miss Friday’s game vs. the Suns.

    There aren’t many healthy bodies left in New Orleans and with Johnson missing Friday’s game, it’ll be Kenrich Williams, Ian Clark and Dairis Bertans left to compete for usage.

    Ian Clark started again for Frank Jackson (concussion) and had 17 points on 7-of-18 shooting with six rebounds in 32 minutes in a loss to the Hornets on Wednesday.

    The efficiency is not there, but he can be a useful stream for volume purposes as long as he is starting. He contributed three triples, three assists and a steal to his stat line as well. Stanley Johnson has also seen an uptick in minutes due to the plethora of injuries, an he had 17 points on 6-of-10 shooting with not much else in 23 minutes.

    Ian Clark started for Frank Jackson (concussion) on Thursday night but put up a major dud, going 2-for-11 from the field in 32 minutes to finished with six points, three assists and two 3-pointers.

    This, as the kids say, ain't it. Clark might keep starting since the Pelicans have nobody left in the backcourt but he's only a 3-point specialist in the very deepest of leagues. Dairis Bertans is probably the more interesting option here — simply because we haven't seen much of him — but only logged eight minutes tonight.

    Ian Clark will start for the injured Frank Jackson (concussion) on Thursday night against the Kings.

    Although Clark will get the start on Thursday night, don't expect an increase in value as he has niche values. He can hit from distance but will only be a dart throw with a heavy amount of games tonight.

    Ian Clark logged 25 minutes in Tuesday's home loss, scoring 12 points with two 3-pointers and a steal.

    Clark saw extra run with Frank Jackson leaving because of a concussion. We might see more of Clark going forward but he's only going to hold appeal in very deep leagues where owners have to scrounge for points and threes. Dairis Bertans might also get into the rotation for as long as Jackson is out.

    Ian Clark logged 28 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's blowout loss to the Magic and delivered 17 points (7-of-13 shooting), five rebounds, four dimes and three triples.

    This Magic had this game in the bag early on, which explains why Clark logged so many minutes. He's not going to be posting lines like this on a regular basis, so leave him be. Frank Jackson started and posted 14 points on 6-of-16 shooting with four rebounds, four assists and two 3s.

    Ian Clark scored 17 points off the bench in Saturday's win over the Lakers, hitting 7-of-12 shots (including two threes) with one rebound, one assists and three steals in 26 minutes.

    Clark got some extra run and touches with E'Twaun Moore out and anything will go in New Orleans down the stretch, but we need to see a lot more out of either he or Frank Jackson (five points, six boards, one three, 2-of-10 FGs) before buying into either of them.

    Ian Clark scored 15 points for the skeleton Pelicans on Saturday night.

    New Orleans didn't have Elfrid Payton or E'Twaun Moore available and Clark took advantage. That's his second 15-point game in the last three, but also only his third game of more than 10 points all season. He's a deep-league option while the Pels are so thin but there's not much value here.

    Ian Clark (ankle) will not play on Wednesday.

    Even with the injury to Elfrid Payton, Clark has been a negligible part of the rotation. His absence has no fantasy impact.

    Ian Clark (right ankle sprain) is questionable to play on Wednesday.

    Clark is not a fantasy option and doesn't figure to see much playing time even with New Orleans reshuffling its rotation due to injury.
