Montrezl Harrell had a good game on Monday in a win over the Pacers, going for 26 points (12-of-22 FGs, 2-of-5 FTs), eight boards, one dime and one rejection in 30 minutes.
Harrell has just about matched his production from last season, which is a bit surprising considering that the team added two superstar forwards. His points per game have even increased. Unfortunately, the free throw percentage has gotten worse. Harrell is a safe mid-round player at this point. Also off the bench but with a dud, was Lou Williams with six points on 2-of-19 shooting with one board, six assists and one block.

Montrezl Harrell was solid on Sunday, putting up 20 points (8-of-12 FG), five rebounds and one block, although the 4-of-7 free-throw shooting remains a cause for concern.
The free-throws are unlikely to ever improve for Harrell, but he always balances it out with great shooting from the field, and he is scoring a career-high 19 points per game. Paul George's return has not had a negative impact on his production.
December 6, 2019, 10:57 pmKawhi LeonardSF, Los Angeles Clippers
Kawhi Leonard turned in 17 points (5-of-14 FG), five rebounds, four assists, two steals, two blocks and a 3-pointer in 30 minutes on Friday.
Leonard is still sitting with first-round value despite a big drop in shooting percentage, where he's down at .439 after never finishing a full season below .468 from the field. His knee is a concern but Leonard, for his lofty standing, still has room to improve when those numbers even out. Most of the other Clippers were bad tonight, with Paul George scoring 13 points with seven boards in 31 minutes, Lou Williams netting 11 points and Montrezl Harrell capped at 11 points and a block. Milwaukee blew this one open early so don't read into this much.

Montrezl Harrell had it going on Tuesday when he put up 26 points on 11-of-13 shooting (though he hit just 4-of-12 from the line), nine rebounds, one assist and one steal in 30 minutes in a 117-97 win over the Blazers.
Harrell has improved on most of his numbers from last season despite the arrival of two superstars to his team. He's a top-70 player right now, but he's a star if you're punting free throws. Patrick Patterson, who typically has one good game a month, had a good game tonight with 19 points, eight boards, two dimes, a steal and five triples in 26 minutes.

Montrezl Harrell put up 23 points and 15 rebounds in a huge victory over the Wizards on Sunday.
Harrell played 27 minutes and shot 9-of-15 from the field. He is a top-55 option in 9-cat formats and has cemented himself as the fourth offensive option behind Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and Lou Williams.
November 27, 2019, 11:44 pmLou WilliamsSG, Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers' bench duo had a great night on Wednesday as Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell both double-doubled, with Williams getting 24 points, 13 assists, two steals and three triples while Harrell went for 24 points, 10 boards and a block on 10-of-17 from the field.
Both players are pretty automatic fantasy starts, though Williams might be in for some bumps when both Kawhi Leonard (out tonight) and Paul George are in action. Williams had issues with his shot tonight, going 6-of-18 from the field and 9-of-13 from the line, but there's not too much to complain about here. Trez will be less subject to value swings and is currently posting top-55 numbers.
November 26, 2019, 11:17 pmLou WilliamsSG, Los Angeles Clippers
Lou Williams was a more-than-adequate third scoring option for the Clippers on Tuesday as he tallied 21 points on 7-of-14 shooting with six rebounds, six asssits and four 3s in 33 minutes off the bench.
This is Williams at his best, checking the boxes of points, threes and assists. His fellow reserve Montrezl Harrell quietly delivered 12 points (5-of-12 shooting) seven rebounds, one assist and one steal in 28 minutes. Both players should continue to post mid-round value whether Kawhi Leonard and/or Paul George are available.

Montrezl Harrell dropped 34 points on 13-of-18 shooting in a 134-109 win over the Pelicans on Sunday.
Harrell added one steal and two blocks to the stat sheet as well. He outplayed Ivica Zubac, who put up five points and 10 rebounds in 17 minutes before fouling out. Harrell will hover around top-50 value this season, while Zubac is a late-round option.
November 23, 2019, 1:20 amLou WilliamsSG, Los Angeles Clippers
Lou Williams went full killer mode in the second half of Friday's win over the Rockets, scoring 26 points adding eight assists, four triples and three rebounds.
Williams came off the bench as usual, where he was quite productive along with Montrezl Harrel who had 18 points, seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a steal. These two will continue to provide fantasy value off the Clippers bench all season.
November 21, 2019, 2:02 amMontrezl HarrellPF, Los Angeles Clippers
Montrezl Harrell logged 31 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, and turned it into six points, six rebounds, three dimes, two steals and two blocks.
It was a quiet night on offense for Harrell as most of the Clippers' shots came from their guards and wings. However, he was still able to contribute a couple steals and blocks tonight. Even after the low offensive output, Harrell is sitting inside top-80 value on the season. Ivica Zubac and Maurice Harkless also had quiet nights with five and three points respectively.
November 20, 2019, 2:27 pmKawhi LeonardSF, Los Angeles Clippers
Kawhi Leonard is listed as questionable to play on Wednesday due to a left knee contusion, but did participate in shootaround.
The Clippers have been very careful with Leonard so far this season. Montrezl Harrell, Paul George, and Ivica Zubac have been relied upon even more heavily in Leonard's absence. Stay tuned for more updates.

Montrezl Harrell was buzzing with energy on Monday night as he put up a game-high 28 points (13-of-20 shooting) with 12 rebounds, five assists one steal and block in 28 minutes off the bench.
Harrell continues to make a case for being included in the Sixth-man award conversation this season with steady and strong performances like this. His teammate and usual winner to the aforementioned award Lou Williams, struggled tonight with 5-of-12 shooting for 11 points one rebound, nine dimes, one three and one steal in 32 minutes.

Montrezl Harrell scored 17 points in a blowout win over the Hawks, adding four rebounds, two assists and a block in 23 minutes off the bench Saturday night.
Harrell would have picked up a few more boards and points had the game been tighter but found his services not needed in this blowout win. He will continue to provide great energy off the bench for the Clippers and a high FG percentage, points, and rebounds for fantasy owners.

Montrezl Harrell had a big game on Thursday, starting and scoring 18 points on 8-of-12 shooting with seven rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocks.
Harrell started on Thursday due to the Clippers not having Patrick Beverley (knee) and Kawhi Leonard (knee) but did more of the same stuff. The Clippers should be fielding a full squad soon and Harrell is so efficient that we're not worried about him getting his.
November 13, 2019, 11:07 pmMontrezl HarrellPF, Los Angeles Clippers
Montrezl Harrell couldn't find his shot in Wednesday's loss to the Rockets, finishing his night with just four points (2-of-12 shooting), to go with nine rebounds and two assists in 38 minutes.
Harrell ran into the brick wall that is Clint Capela tonight, so toss this poor shooting performance away. He is one of the few players on this roster that likely won't see a significant change to his role once Paul George returns, making him a safe top-75 play moving forward.
