Los Angeles Clippers Roster

Los Angeles Clippers guard Terance Mann (hand) underwent surgery on Tuesday to repair a torn ligament in his right hand. He suffered the injury while playing in the G League on March 8. The Clippers haven't released a timetable for his return, so it's unclear when Mann will get back on the court. The NBA is currently suspended, so Mann might be able to return to action once play returns. However, Mann was already in the G League, so he won't have much fantasy value going forward.
Los Angeles Clippers forward Paul George was only needed for 23 minutes on Tuesday in the 131-107 easy win over the Warriors. George connected on 5-for-13 shooting to score 15 points and he also handed out five assists with a single steal while being a plus-25 when he was on the floor. With the Clippers getting into playoff form, we could see more of these blowout lines with many opponents playing for lottery balls. When setting your lineups, keep this in mind with George and other Clippers players going forward.
Los Angeles Clippers shooting guard/small forward Kawhi Leonard needed just 25 minutes to record a team-high 23 points in the easy win over the Warriors on Tuesday. Leonard filled up the box score with four rebounds, five assists, two steals and two triples with zero turnovers in this one. Owners knew Leonard would be sitting back-to-backs this season, but even with this, he has proven to be a top-10 player on the season in the fantasy realm. Clippers go again on Friday when they play the Nets, which could be easy pickings for the veteran.
Los Angeles Clippers guard Patrick Beverley hit half of his 10 shots and scored 15 points in the blowout win over the Warriors on Tuesday. The Clippers brought their usual balanced attack in this win and Reggie Jackson came off the bench for 16 points on an efficient 6-for-7 shooting and added four assists with seven Clippers' players registered points in double figures. This was the first double-digit game for Beverley in five previous contests and this could become a trend with the Clippers depth going forward.
Los Angeles Clippers guard Lou Williams (calf) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Golden State Warriors. Williams will sit this one out due to right calf soreness. The Clippers will likely use a committee approach to fill the void. Landry Shamet, Reggie Jackson, and Patrick Beverley should split up the minutes. None of them will receive a big enough boost to consider in most DFS contests for Tuesday's slate.
