    Landry Shamet picked up a wrist injury in Sunday's win over Melbourne United.

    Shamet scored seven points in 18 minutes before exiting and downplayed the injury after the game, so hopefully it's not serious. He remains a quality target in the last couple rounds of 12-team drafts.

    Doc Rivers said that he's considering starting Montrezl Harrell and Lou Williams in certain matchups and that the fifth starter in those cases would be a "pick 'em" situation.

    The main candidates in that configuration, when both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are playing, are Patrick Beverley or Landry Shamet at point guard or Moe Harkless at power forward. The Clippers, when healthy, have assembled one of the most versatile teams in the league so it wouldn't be surprising if Rivers leveraged that to get the most out of his team on any given night.

    Landry Shamet showed off his point guard potential with eight assists on Sunday, but also shot 1-of-8 from 3-point range.

    All of Shamet's shots were from three over his 21 minutes against the Shanghai Sharks. It is good to see this already from Shamet after head coach Doc Rivers has been indicating Shamet would be playing point guard this year. He is someone to target as a late-round selection.

    Doc Rivers said that he expects Landry Shamet to play a lot of point guard this season for the Clippers

    Rivers continued to say that Shamet has a lot of traits similar to Stephen Curry, which of course is incredibly high praise. Clearly they view Shamet as a big part of this team, which is great news for his outlook as a mid-to-late round upside play.

    Maurice Harkless is part of the starting unit for the Clippers at the moment, along with Landry Shamet and Ivica Zubac.

    Kawhi Leonard and Patrick Beverley were the two no-doubters, and Harkless is clearly just in there while Paul George misses time due to shoulder surgeries. With a deep team, it is intriguing to see who will be running with the two new all-NBA acquisitions. Harkless could see starters minutes for anywhere from a week to over a month to start the season.

    Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports that Landry Shamet has been preparing to play some point guard this season.

    The Clippers are without a traditional point guard and Shamet may be one of the players that needs to take on additional ball-handling responsibilities. How he fares as a distributor could have major effects on his playing time, too — Buha notes that Shamet could start over Patrick Beverley. It's worth noting that Beverley got off to a very slow start last season and only found his groove upon starting in small, multi-guard lineups, which won't be possible given LA's summer acquisitions. His stock is trending down while Shamet, assuming he is in line for a larger role, is becoming more attractive as a late-round pick in standard leagues.

    Landry Shamet has withdrawn from USA Basketball Select Team camp.

    Shamet is focusing his attention on preparing for a potential deep Clippers playoff run. After being traded from the Sixers last season, he played 27.8 minutes per game and averaged 10.9 points, 2.2 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.5 steals, 2.7 threes on 45 percent shooting. Shamet's fantasy value will depend on whether he can find a role in the rotation with the new additions to the team.

    Clippers guard Landry Shamet was invited to participate with the Select Team at Team USA's National Team camp in Las Vegas in August.

    The Select Team is quite the honor for Shamet, as the Select Team is the younger generation seen as the next stars of the game. Shamet played well when he was given the opportunity in his rookie year, and his exact role next season remains a bit of a mystery as the Clippers are set up to be major players in free agency. We'll have to see what the team does before we can guage his fantasy value for next season.

    Landry Shamet did all his damage from 3-point land on Monday, including the game winner to knock off the Warriors in shocking fashion, scoring 12 points (4-of-9 shooting) and adding four rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes.

    Shamet capped off a record comeback by the Clippers, rallying from 31 down to stun the Warriors at home. He had a solid game overall, but will definitely be remembered for this win. He should continue to play heavy minutes on the wing for Doc Rivers in Game 3.

    Landry Shamet scored 14 points to go with three 3s, four rebounds, three assists and nothing else in Wednesday's win over the visiting Jazz.

    Shamet's 29 minutes led the starters (ties with Ivica Zubac) as most of the key veterans played light minutes against a Jazz team that rested just about everybody. Shamet has been an important piece on since being traded to the Clippers but outside of the 2.7 treys he doesn't have any standout skills that translate to fantasy which means he'll remain a deep-league fringe guy unless he fixes the major holes in his fantasy game. He finished the season as the No. 216 player in 9-cat, falling closer to the top-250 in 8-cat.

    Landry Shamet (left ankle impingement) returned from a one-game absence on Thursday and played 31 minutes, hitting four triples and scoring 13 points.

    It's a fine line for Shamet returning from a minor injury and he should have some volume appeal over the last few important days of the season as a deep-league specialist play.

    The Clippers are listing Landry Shamet (left ankle impingement) available for Thursday's game against the Bucks.

    Shamet should return to the starting lineup, and can see a few extra minutes with Patrick Beverley out tonight. Shamet makes for a nice weekend add in deeper leagues where he is available, as the Clippers are scheduled for three games in the next four nights.

    Landry Shamet (left ankle impingement) is questionable for Thursday's matchup with the Bucks.

    Shamet missed last night's game and Garrett Temple had a productive game starting in his place, so that should be the play again tomorrow. With Patrick Beverley also questionable, it could be another big night for Temple with added minutes heading to Tyrone Wallace and Sindarius Thornwell off the bench.

    Landry Shamet (left ankle impingement) is out on Tuesday and Garrett Temple will start in his place.

    Shamet's absence will leave the Clippers short on spacing, but Temple can easily slot into the starting five and give the team some solid minutes, as he had all season with the Grizzlies prior to being traded. He's not much of a fantasy option. Shamet is a solid 3-point specialist but with the number of players who take threes regularly around the league, you can probably find an alternative on the wire without much trouble.
