Patrick Beverley played 21 meaningful minutes for the Clippers in their 131-107 over the Warriors, chipping in 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting along with four treys, three rebounds and two assists.
Considering Beverley’s scored10 points over his last five game combined, tonight’s 15-point effort could be the wake-up call he’s been waiting for. He’s likely lying around in most waiver wires, so aggressive owners might be willing to roll the dice after tonight.
March 8, 2020, 7:04 pmMarcus MorrisPF, Los Angeles Clippers
Marcus Morris was atrocious on Sunday afternoon, going 0-for-9 from the field and finishing with one point, six rebounds and a steal in 29 minutes.
Morris has really had his issues since joining the Clippers and is sitting well outside the top-200 in the last two weeks. He's a drop if you've been holding on, as its clear now more than ever that he's just a volume scorer who struggles to stay in rhythm unless he's calling the shots. Patrick Beverley was equally disappointing with two points, four rebounds and a steal in 26 minutes and is even worse than Morris over the last two weeks, sitting outside the top-250. The most talkative Clippers certainly didn't back themselves up today.

Patrick Beverley had another poor outing on Tuesday as he totalled just three points (1-of-6 FGs), two rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes in a win over the Thunder.
Beverley was held scoreless in each of his previous games. And while points are just one fantasy category, Beverley's looked like a sure drop since his most recent return from injury. It's possible that he'll round into shape and that his minutes will get back up to his season level, but it's not worth waiting on him to find out.

Patrick Beverley looked off his game as he missed his lone shot attempt from the field for zero points, three rebounds and four assists in 21 minutes on Friday.
That's pretty much rock-bottom for a not-injured PatBev. Owners will just have to write this stinker off as he's capable of bringing it strong and ticking multiple category boxes on most nights. Stay patient. Off the bench, Reggie Jackson flirted with a triple-double, recording 10 points (4-of-6 shooting), eight rebounds, seven assists, two 3s and one steal in 19 minutes.

Paul George struggled from the field in his limited minutes on Wednesday, but still managed 11 points on 4-of-13 shooting, one rebound, four assists and three steals.
George is still on a minutes limit which will hamper his production until he gets ramped back up. Patrick Beverley was also on a minutes restriction and scored 11 points with five rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes of action.
February 26, 2020, 7:53 pmPaul GeorgeSF, Los Angeles Clippers
Paul George (left hamstring strain) and Patrick Beverley (sore right groin) will remain on a minutes limit on Wednesday vs. the Suns.
George struggled in his return from injury on Monday, shooting 3-of-11 from the field with seven points, four rebounds and four assists in 21 minutes. George will ramp up slowly, but he should be at full strength in time for the fantasy playoffs in most formats. He is still a risk of resting games down the stretch. Beverley scored six points with three rebounds and two assists in 19 minutes on Monday and should be owned in standard leagues.

Patrick Beverley (sore right groin) resumed his starting role in his return to action on Monday with six points (2-of-3 from deep), three rebounds, two assists and one steal.
Beverley saw 19 minutes in his return, less than any other guard on the Clippers roster tonight. Beverley's a lockdown defender and that's his path to minutes and usage going forward. He should post better lines as he gets his legs back.
February 24, 2020, 8:55 pmPatrick BeverleyPG, Los Angeles Clippers
Patrick Beverley, who has not played since February 5th with a sore right groin, is available for Monday's tilt vs. the Grizzlies.
Beverley will be returning to a now more crowded backcourt, with Reggie Jackson joining the team to further clog things up. Beverley, thanks to his defense, should eventually earn the lion's share of the minutes, with Jackson and Landry Shamet taking hits to their value.

Still hampered with a sore right groin, Patrick Beverley is questionable for Monday's game against the Grizzlies.
Beverley did get through a full practice on Friday so he should have a fair chance to appear on Monday. Stay tuned to see how it all shakes out, but be realistic about Beverley's future prospects on a largely healthy Clippers roster. With the newfound depth at his disposal, Doc Rivers is unlikely to push Beverley when he returns, making him a late-round play at most in 12-team formats.

Patrick Beverley (right groin) has been ruled out for Saturday's contest with the Kings.
Beverley missed the prior four games leading up to the All-Star break and, even though he practiced in full on Friday, was deemed unready to go on Saturday. Once he returns from injury, it will be interesting to see how he fits into the Clippers' plans the rest of the way with Reggie Jackson in the fold now. Beverley's value could take a hit or it could remain relatively the same, as he and Jackson have yet to take the floor together yet.

Patrick Beverley (sore right groin) was able to go through the entire practice on Friday with the Clippers.
Beverley missed the past four games heading into the All-Star break, last appearing in action on February 5. Head coach Doc Rivers was pleased to report that this was one of the only times all year that the Clippers practiced with a fully healthy roster, and the team will want to keep it that way. That means Beverley will be handled with kids gloves the rest of the way and is unlikely to see minutes beyond the upper 20s on most nights. He's strictly a late-round value in standard leagues when healthy.

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.

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.

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.
