Lou Williams (sore right calf) is being listed as out ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Warriors.
Williams has been slumping a bit over the past two weeks, with value outside of the top-150 in 9 cat leagues. This is likely a routine maintenance day against the worst-record in the league. Patrick Beverley and Landry Shamet should see additional minutes in Williams' absence.

Lou Williams went 3-for-11 from the field en route to seven points, five rebounds and three assists in Sunday's "home" loss.
Williams is in a bit of a slump, settling in around the top-150 mark over the last couple of weeks. He'll get it turned around because he plays such an important role for the Clippers, but his he's scored eight points or fewer in four of his last seven games. We can't imagine the last time Lou Will went through that kind of points-less drought.
March 1, 2020, 8:41 pmLou WilliamsSG, Los Angeles Clippers
Lou Williams went for 24 points (8-of-12 FG), eight assists, three 3-pointers and one steal versus the Sixers on Sunday.
Williams was an uncharacteristic 5-of-8 from the charity stripe, but beyond that wart, there was not much to complain about with this showing. Williams is a stable option in standard leagues, but he is not going to pop off for anything special as long as the rest of the roster around him is healthy. That includes the newly imported Reggie Jackson who put up 13 points, four rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer and two blocks in just 19 minutes. Jackson has had three strong showings for the Clippers, but he is just a hot deep league option while receiving minutes in the teens.

Montrezl Harrell had one of is better games on Friday night, putting up 18 points on 7-of-12 shooting from the field and a 4-of-4 run at the line in 20 minutes as the Clippers easily dispatched with the Nuggets 132-103.
Harrell actually double-doubled, recording 10 rebounds and added four assists and three blocks to cap off his solid line for the night. The big man is shooting .769 at the line over the last week, making him the 50th best player in the league in 9-cat scoring formats. His partner in crime, Lou Williams, also had a good run tonight with 17 points (6-of-12 shooting), five threes, seven assists and a steal in 22 minutes.

Lou Williams cooled off in Monday's win over the Grizzlies, quietly chipping in eight points on 3-of-7 shooting with four rebounds, two 3s and six assists in 22 minutes.
Williams' subpar numbers are no cause for concern as the blowout nature of the game played a role in it. Expect him to bounce back with another big game soon.
February 22, 2020, 7:03 pmKawhi LeonardSF, Los Angeles Clippers
Kawhi Leonard posted 31 points, eight rebounds, five assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in Saturday's 103-112 loss to the Kings.
The Clippers' funk continues, but fantasy GMs may be alright with it if it forces Kawhi to keep playing at his exceedingly high level. The other reliable Clippers did their thing today in the losing effort, with Montrezl Harrell posting 16 points and 10 boards and Lou Williams clocking in with 24 points and two threes, though he did also commit eight turnovers.
February 18, 2020, 4:46 pmReggie JacksonPG, Detroit Pistons
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.

Lou Williams played 44 minutes off the bench in Thursday's loss to the Celtics, scoring a team-high 35 points on 14-of-33 shooting to go with six rebounds, eight assists, a steal and two blocked shots.
Williams seemed like he was dominating all night but he required a lot of volume to get to those 35 points. Part of that was because of Paul George's early exit, but we have to be wary of this efficiency issue for Lou. He'll continue to score in bunches at the cost of some horrendous shooting nights.
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.

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.

Lou Wiliams put up 25 points in a start on Sunday in a 133-92 win over the Cavs.
Williams added five rebounds, three assists and two steals while shooting 8-of-14 from the field. Paul George chipped in 22 points, six rebounds, five triples and four assists on 8-of-12 shooting. Montrezl Harrell added 19 points and nine rebounds on 8-of-10 shooting. This game did not prove much aside from the fact that the trade deadline did not damage their roles and value.

Lou Williams scored 12 points on 3-of-12 shooting to go with one rebound and four assists in Monday's win over the Spurs.
Here we go, with Paul George and Kawhi Leonard both active, Williams struggled to get much going on offense. It was an awful shooting night, but Sweet Lou was never known for his efficiency and the rough nights like this are going to come a lot more frequently with a healthy roster. Hopefully, you sold high.

Lou Williams came off the bench on Thursday and scored 22 points on 7-of-22 shooting to go with six dimes, a steal and a 3-pointer.
Sweet Lou had an opportunity to add some value tonight with Kawhi Leonard resting, but couldn't shoot efficiently, which has always been one of his issues. If you can still sell-high, you should.

On a somber Sunday evening, Lou Williams hit just 3-of-10 shots from the field for 15 points in a win over the Magic, recording two rebounds, one assists and two triples.
Williams is on a bit of a mini-slump, something that he does tend to go through every now and again. That said, he's always found a way to heat up again and his owners should simply give him a bit of leash to shoot his way back into his old form.

Lou Williams finished Friday's win over the Heat with 16 points (5-for-14 shooting), seven assists, two triples and two rebounds across 27 minutes.
The 16 points were the most off the bench for the Clippers as Williams continues to be one of the most dangerous sixth men in the league. He also sunk all four of his free throw attempts.
