Life without LeBron provided a harsh wakeup call

Jordan Clarkston has been getting more reps at SF than he has in previous seasons.
This is more a product of the the Cavs' lack of depth at the position than it is an endorsement of Clarkston's ability to play it. Still, with the overwhelming amount of guards competing for rotation minutes, it's encouraging for his outlook that John Beilein is willing to play him out of position. Clarkston can let if fly and was the Cavs most consistant scorer last season. He figures to get less reps with Collin Sexton looking to take a larger leap, but he is still someone who can score a buch for your fantasy team.

Jordan Clarkson scored a team-high 17 points in 20 minutes and added three rebounds, two assists, three triples, three steals and a block in a 120-89 victory over San Lorenzo on Monday night.
Clarkson came off the bench and hit 6-of-11 field goals and both of his free throws. We know what he is at this point and there are plenty of guards in need of minutes on the Cavs. But you could do worse with a late pick if you're in need of some scoring and threes.

Cavs combo guard Jordan Clarkson changed agents and signed with Klutch Sports and Rich Paul.
Clarkson is likely to be a trade target for competitive teams ahead of next year's trade deadline, as a quality player on an expiring contract. Clarkson will enter free agency next offseason looking for the best deal possible.

The Cavs will likely move Jordan Clarkson before next February's trade deadline, according to Chris Fedor.
The Cavs would need to take a bad contract back, but Clarkson had a nice bounce-back season as a bench scorer. He should be able to fetch a late-first or two second-round picks.

Jordan Clarkson finished the season with 16 points, two rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in Tuesday's loss to the Hornets.
Clarkson was one of Cleveland's only usable backcourt players this season. He was a positive contributor for points, 3-pointers and free throw percentage this season landing him inside the top-144 in both 8 and 9-cat formats. Depending on who the Cavaliers land in the draft, he may be able to carve out a similar role next season.

Jordan Clarkson scored 20 points on 8-of-16 shooting while adding six rebounds, three assists, a steal and a 3-pointer on Monday.
The Cavs don't have much scoring outside of Collin Sexton and Clarkson so he'll be able to close out the year on a nice little scoring run, but the shooting should regress. Clarkson was hot again tonight and he is what he is, a triples and points streamer.

Jordan Clarkson was hot on Saturday, scoring 26 points on 11-of-16 shooting while adding two assists and two steals.
Clarkson helped propel the Cavs on an 11-0 run during a 3:00 stretch in the third quarter, but as soon as the fourth started, the Cavs were cooked. He's a bit of a microwave on offense as he can get it going in a pinch, but consistency and efficiency have never been his calling cards so don't get too excited about this game.

Jordan Clarkson tallied 19 points, four assists, three rebounds and a three-pointer in 35 minutes off the bench in Sunday's loss against the Bucks.
Clarkson was a tad inefficient in this one (7-for-16 from the field, 1-for-4 from three, 4-for-5 from the free throw line) as he loves to be. The four assists and three rebounds with no defensive stats are also a classic Clarkson line, which is unfortunate for his fantasy value. He's just a very deep league contributor right now thanks to his one-dimensionality.

Jordan Clarkson scored 15 inefficient points (6-of-18 shooting) and added little else on Thursday night in a loss to the Magic.
This is the typical Clarkson line, where he scores a handful of points but contributes very little else (four rebounds, two assists). It's fine in a very deep league, but there just isn't a lot of standard league appeal for such an empty stat set.

Jordan Clarkson struggled mightily on Tuesday night, going 5-of-20 from the field en route to 13 points, five rebounds and two assists against the Sixers.
Clarkson needed to step up on a night where the Cavs only had nine active players, and they were still in this one til the end despite his rough showing. He's been a consistent late-round option all season long as one of Cleveland's few reliable scoring options and that doesn't change despite a potentially matchup-deciding performance tonight. Nik Stauskas had nine points, two triples and four assists in 17 minutes to help out the backcourt effort.

Jordan Clarkson scored a team-high 18 points on Sunday in the 107-93 win over the Orlando Magic.
Clarkson added three triples and two assists. Fellow benchmate Matthew Dellavedova delivered with 11 points, three triples, two steals and three assists.

Jordan Clarkson scored 22 points on Thursday night as the Cavaliers beat the Knicks.
Clarkson did a whole lot of nothing else in a typical "Clarkson" line. He's really just a low-end guard option at this point for depth. The stat set just isn't intriguing enough to warrant a ton of excitement.

Jordan Clarkson scored 15 points on 5-of-12 shooting with four rebounds, five assists and two triples against the Suns on Thursday.
Clarkson remains one of the most reliable bench scorers on the Cavs which isn't saying much considering he's inefficient and lacks the peripheral stats to support his fantasy game.
