    Landry Shamet (sprained left ankle) is doubtful for Friday's game.

    Shamet is expected to get some shots up at Thursday's practice but isn't likely to take contact, so his return is still a couple days away. It's been a disappointing season for the sophomore, who was unable to deliver on standard-league promise before getting hurt.

    Doc Rivers said on Monday that it’s unlikely that Landry Shamet returns on the upcoming three-game road trip even though he is progressing.

    There hasn’t been a crystal clear update regarding Shamet’s return to the court but owners can at least rule him out for the upcoming trip. The Clippers will continue to use Rodney McGruger and Jerome Robinson but Lou Williams has obviously been the biggest beneficiary so far.

    Landry Shamet (left ankle sprain) avoided a significant injury as an MRI revealed a Grade 2 high ankle sprain, and he remains without a timetable for return.

    Shamet is probably looking at a few weeks of absence, but this is a win for the Clippers. The bigger hit to Shamet's value will come in the form of Paul George, who is set to make his Clippers debut on Thursday against the Pelicans.

    Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that Clippers guard Landry Shamet will undergo an MRI on his sprained left ankle on Tuesday morning in order to determine the severity of his injury.

    Shamet left the game on Monday after suffering the non-contact injury. It didn’t look good and it’s safe to assume that he will miss some time, so managers should prepare accordingly. The Clippers expect to get Paul George back as soon as this week and his return will help cover for Shamet’s potential loss. In the meantime, Rodney McGruger, Terrence Mann and Jerome Robinson will get the extra minutes but no one deserves serious consideration except in deeper leagues.

    Landry Shamet left Monday's game with an ankle injury.

    Shamet couldn't put any weight on his leg and has been ruled out. It's tough to tell if it's a contact injury and we're hoping it isn't serious. He can be safely ignored in fantasy leagues.

  • Lou Williams
    SG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Lou Williams had his best game of the season on Wednesday, finishing the night with 34 points, six rebounds, 11 assists and sinking four from deep.

    Williams looked great tonight showing that he can score and facilitate as needed. Landry Shamet also started and chipped in 14 points and four 3s. Williams has shown he can score well but will need to continue adding in other categories to be more than a late round value. Shamet is only worth looks in deeper leagues at this point. This is likely the ceiling for Williams as Kawhi Leonard wasn't available tonight.

    Landry Shamet was quiet on Thursday, with seven points on 2-of-8 shooting to go with two assists, a steal and a 3-pointer.

    Shamet was 1-for-7 from deep and had a clean look late in the fourth that barely missed which would have put away the Spurs even earlier. He's a solid role-player, but the Clippers have a set pecking order and Shamet, along with Patrick Beverley (eight points, four rebounds, five assists and a 3-pointer) will have plenty more nights like this.

    The Clippers have excercised the third-year option on G Landry Shamet for the 2020-21 season, per Adrian Wojnarowski on ESPN.

    Shamet has been starting for the Clippers, but that might change when Paul George (shoulders) is ready to return. Shamet has value as a 3-point specialist in standard leagues.

    Landry Shamet was hot shooting the ball on Monday, scoring 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting to go with four rebounds, two assists, a steal and four 3-pointers.

    Shamet was doing it all tonight, hitting open treys, making clean cuts off the ball and even facilitating for his teammates. He has standalone value as a 3-point specialist, but with how much talent there is on the Clippers roster, we can't expect nights like this to come too often. Patrick Beverley (five points, five rebounds, four assists, two steals and a 3-pointer) had a decent night as well and is more of a steals streamer.

    Landry Shamet put up 11 points, three assists, a block and three 3-pointers in Thursday's win over the Warriors.

    Shamet continues to start for the Clippers and does a decent amount of running point, so the assists should become pretty regular. His greatest value is as a floor-spacer but given the likelihood that he gets steady minutes even after Paul George returns, Shamet should be rostered by any 12-team managers that need dimes and threes.

  • Lou Williams
    SG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Lou Williams efficiently provided 21 points (8-for-14 FGs, 4-for-4 FTs) along with five rebounds, seven assists, a steal and a three in 37 minutes off the bench in a win over the Lakers on Tuesday.

    Williams has averaged over 30 minutes per game in a season just once in his career. That season (2017-18) he ranked 34th/44th (8-cat/9-cat) because the team needed his offense. There's a decent chance that Williams can at least get close to that mark for the period of time that Paul George is out. The starting backcourt of Patrick Beverley and Landry Shamet was less impressive as Beverley had little besides 10 rebounds and six assists and while Shamet hit two treys, he wasn't anything more than a threes streamer overall.

    Despite 37 minutes in Thursday's preseason game, Landry Shamet finished with five points, two rebounds, two assists, two steals, a 3-pointer and a 2-of-10 shooting line.

    The Clippers look prepared to give Shamet major minutes this season on the wing and at point guard, but his preseason play has been lackluster. We're going to chalk this up to a weirdly-timed slump and continue drafting Shamet in the later rounds of all drafts.

    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.

  • Maurice Harkless
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    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.
