Patrick Beverley (left calf strain), Montrezl Harrell (quarantine) and Landry Shamet (foot) have all been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.
With all three players on the sideline, it will be Reggie Jackson handling the majority of the point guard minutes, while Ivica Zubac will continue to handle the load at center. Both are worth rostering in standard formats.

Landry Shamet finally found his offensive rhythm on Saturday, connecting on three triples on his way to 19 points, three rebounds and three assists in 34 minutes.
Shamet finally found some momentum, turning in his best performance of the bubble so far. In fact, he managed to score more than his previous four games combined. The Clippers were without a couple of their regular starters, meaning Shamet was given more freedom on the offensive end. He is typically seeing minutes in the mid-20s and is only a player to look at if you need points.

Landry Shamet was quiet in Thursday's limited minutes, finishing with five points on six shot attempts despite playing 27 minutes.
Both Shamet and Lou Williams were supposed to be limited but Shamet managed to play 27 minutes in this contest. Both will be hard to trust in the short term for fantasy as they get their minutes monitored. Williams took nine shots in 20 minutes to put up his six points and three assists.

Doc Rivers told the media that both Lou Williams and Landry Shamet will have their minutes limited in Thursday's tilt vs. the Mavs
Williams played 21 minutes in his first game back and we can expect a similar amount from him again this afternoon. Shamet will also have his minutes monitored after averaging 21.9 minutes through the first three contests. Shamet is better left on the wire for now but Williams has the higher ceiling and could be worth a roster spot with the hopes that he performs well in the second-half of the seeding games.

Landry Shamet played in his first game since testing positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, shooting 1-for-8 for two points in 22 minutes.
Shamet was worked back in slowly, as he averaged 27.5 mpg in the regular season. He's someone that might be looking at additional work while Lou Williams is out (that'll be at least one more game), though he won't have much to offer fantasy GMs beyond threes.

Landry Shamet and Ivica Zubac were not listed on the official injury report ahead of Thursday's tilt vs. the Lakers.
Thursday's games can't come soon enough for NBA fans around the world and the showdown between the Lakers and Clippers will be a doozy. The Clippers will be without Lou Williams (self-isolating) and Patrick Beverley (self-isolating) which should allow for additional opportunity for Shamet off the bench. There could also be additional opportunity for Zubac with Montrezl Harrell away from the team. However, both youngsters did test positive for COVID during the hiatus and it is doubtful that they see enough minutes to be worth targeting in DFS or resumption leagues.

Landry Shamet, who previously tested positive for COVID-19, could be available for Thursday's matchup against the Lakers.
Doc Rivers believes that Shamet will be ready, but nothing is certain just yet. While Shamet shot 39.2 percent from 3-point range during the regular season, he is not a major fantasy factor in other departments. Lou Williams and Reggie Jackson could see a bit more action if he cannot play at the outset.

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.

Shams Charania reports that Landry Shamet has tested positive for COVID-19 and is unlikely to join the Clippers for their trip to Orlando this week.
That leaves the door open for Shamet to rejoin the team closer to the season's restart, assuming he is feeling okay. Just yesterday it was announced that the Clippers closed their facilities after a positive test, so it appears Shamet's case was the culprit. The sharpshooter is averaging 27.5 minutes per game this season so if he's forced to sit out the Orlando restart it could have big ramifications on LA's backcourt rotation.

Reggie Jackson reportedly has his sights set on joining the Clippers after reaching a buyout agreement with the Pistons on Tuesday.
The Clippers were among the favorites to land Darren Collison before he decided to stay retired. Jackson has been playing well for fantasy teams lately, but this is obviously a massive blow to his fantasy value. Jackson will compete with Lou Williams, Patrick Beverley and Landry Shamet for guard minutes moving forward. Bruce Brown Jr., Svi Mykhailuk, Derrick Rose and possibly Luke Kennard (knee) all stand to benefit with additional minutes and usage with Jackson now gone. It is worth searching the waiver wire to see if any of the Pistons guards are on your league's waiver wire.

Landry Shamet scored 19 points and hit four triples in a team-high 48 minutes as the Clippers fell to the Celtics in double-overtime on Thursday.
Shamet is taking advantage of Patrick Beverley's absence to let shots fly from distance. Almost all of his points come from beyond the arc and he doesn't contribute much else, so for teams looking for a jolt in 3-pointers, Shamet can be your guy.
February 12, 2020, 6:07 pmPatrick BeverleyPG, Los Angeles Clippers
Patrick Beverley (sore right groin) has been ruled out ahead of Thursday's tilt vs. the Celtics.
Beverley will miss his fourth consecutive game on Thursday but the team could be proceeding with caution as the league is about to have a week respite from games with the All-Star break. Beverley could make his return the first game following the All-Star break which would be Saturday, February 22nd against the Kings. Continue to monitor as we will learn more towards the end of next week. Landry Shamet, Lou Williams and Rodney McGruder should continue to see additional opportunity with Beverley sidelined.

Landry Shamet continued to serve a large role for the Clippers Tuesday, scoring 19 points on 5-of-9 shooting from beyond the arc against the Sixers.
He did nothing else, essentially. One rebound is all he had other than the 19 points. Usually he throws in a couple more counting stats to go along with some triples on a given night. Shamet is a top-200 player on the year and is especially appealing if you are looking for help with threes.

Patrick Beverley (sore right groin) will not play during Tuesday's game.
Beverley missed both games over the weekend after getting injured on Wednesday. Landry Shamet and Lou Williams are seeing more minutes in his absence.

Landry Shamet turned 32 minutes off the bench into 23 points (7-15 FG) with six triples and six assists on Wednesday.
Shamet has been a strong source of triples and points recently. For teams in need of the long ball, he might be your answer and has been just outside the top-100 over the last two weeks.
