Patrick Beverley (left calf strain), Montrezl Harrell (quarantine) and Landry Shamet (foot) have all been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.
With all three players on the sideline, it will be Reggie Jackson handling the majority of the point guard minutes, while Ivica Zubac will continue to handle the load at center. Both are worth rostering in standard formats.

Reggie Jackson started at point guard on Saturday, finishing with 17 points on 6-of-14 shooting to go with five assists and two rebounds in 35 minutes of playing time.
With Patrick Beverley (left calf strain) on the sidelines, Jackson moved back into the starting lineup. He was one of six players to score in double-digits for the Clippers, helping them to an unlikely victory. Jackson is fine to stream in until Beverley returns, however, his long-term value is far from uplifting.

Reggie Jackson came off the bench on Saturday and scored 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting with eight rebounds, two steals and three triples in 20 minutes.
Jackson returned to the bench after his spot start for Patrick Beverley on Thursday. Jackson has filled in admirably for the Clippers in the first two games of the restart. He will see his minutes reduced when Lou Williams returns to the lineup and will lose any fantasy value he has.

Patrick Beverley will shift back into the starting lineup against the Pelicans on Saturday but will remain on a minutes restriction.
Despite only one game under his belt, Beverley will replace Reggie Jackson in the starting lineup. He was a late arrival in Orlando after leaving to deal with a family matter. After scoring 12 points in 16 minutes during the season resumption, Beverley could see his playing time climb slightly. However, he still presents an element of risk if you opt to roll with him in your fantasy lineup.

Reggie Jackson started in Thursday's re-opener and posted 10 points (3-for-10 FG), six rebounds, four assists and a 3-pointer in 34 minutes of action.
Jackson drew the start with Patrick Beverley still not quite at 100% after leaving the bubble, but he didn't do much to inspire confidence for any fantasy GMs who are playing through the restart. He'll likely move to the bench as soon as Beverley is healthy, and his minutes might just evaporate when Lou Williams is ready to return. Until then he'll be a late-round option at best.

Reggie Jackson will start Thursday's game against the Lakers ahead of Patrick Beverley.
Jackson will get the nod in the starting lineup but Beverley will be available off the bench for an undisclosed amount of time. Jackson has been a nice add for the Clippers and could get a decent amount of run in the early going.

Doc Rivers said that Patrick Beverley, who had been away from the Clippers for personal reasons, is a "maybe" for Thursday's game against the Lakers.
The Clippers are expecting Landry Shamet to be ready, which should take some of the pressure off of Reggie Jackson and Lou Williams. Beverley can chip in with long-range shooting and defensive stats, but even when healthy his fantasy impact has been blunted by the depth of the roster.

Landry Shamet, who previously tested positive for COVID-19, could be available for Thursday's matchup against the Lakers.
Doc Rivers believes that Shamet will be ready, but nothing is certain just yet. While Shamet shot 39.2 percent from 3-point range during the regular season, he is not a major fantasy factor in other departments. Lou Williams and Reggie Jackson could see a bit more action if he cannot play at the outset.

In their first scrimmage in Orlando on Wednesday, Reggie Jackson started in place of Patrick Beverley (personal).
Jackson logged 18 minutes and scored nine points on 4-of-7 from the field to go with two rebounds and two assists. Beverley, who is the team’s starting point guard, left the NBA campus on Tuesday to attend to a family matter and Jackson should continue to see an increased workload while Beverley is sidelined.

Reggie Jackson missed 42 games with back problems and then was waived by the Pistons before latching on with the Clippers in a dreadful 2019-20 season.
Jackson's days as an NBA starter are likely finished, as the Pistons found a very cool trade market for their former PG of the future despite his expiring contract. He was okay for deep-league use in fantasy, returning top-180/205 value (8/9-cat) thanks to 4.4 dimes and 2.0 triples per game, but that's generally a stat set that needs minutes to shine. Jackson averaged just 19.4 mpg after inking with the Clippers and would need far more than that on his next team to be worth a late-round selection in 12-team formats.

Reggie Jackson had a solid game vs. the Warriors on Tuesday, maximizing his 19 minutes off the bench with 16 points on 6-of-7 shooting with three triples and four assists.
Jackson didn't need a lot of time to put up his line. Unfortunately, he's not done enough on a regular basis to warrant an add in 16-team leagues or shallower right now. The Clippers' backcourt is simply too crowded for managers to trust R-Jax at this time.

According to Shams Charania of the Athletic, the Lakers have signed Dion Waiters to a contract for the rest of the season.
The Lakers have been searching for additional ball-handlers since the trade deadline to help take some of the load off of LeBron James. They missed on Darren Collison and Reggie Jackson before signing Waiters. He will be competing for minutes with Alex Caruso and Rajon Rondo. In all likelihood, Waiters will come off the bench and play enough of a role to have value in deeper leagues but should not be added in standard leagues.

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.

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.

Reggie Jackson started in his Clippers debut on Saturday but wasn't anything special, producing eight points, four assists and two 3-pointers on 3-of-9 shooting in 23 minutes.
Jackson may hold low-end value while Patrick Beverley is out but will just be a depth option when the Clippers are fully healthy. Even now, he's not a recommended option if you're trying to preserve FG% and is really just a specialist for threes and assists.
