Los Angeles Clippers forward Paul George (hamstring) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Orlando Magic. The Clippers believe he's getting closer to a return, but it's unclear if he'll be able to play until Thursday. Landry Shamet has stepped up in his absence and is a decent streaming option until George is back.
Los Angeles Clippers guard Patrick Beverley (groin) is listed as doubtful for Friday's game against the Miami Heat. He missed Wednesday's contest and it doesn't sound like he'll be healed up enough to play in Friday's contest. Lou Williams and Landry Shamet will see more minutes coming their way without Beverley available. Williams should handle the ball more often on Friday.
Los Angeles Clippers small/power forward Paul George has been ruled out for Fridays game versus the Miami Heat due to the hamstring strain that has been a thorn in his side for the better part of three weeks. George will miss his eighth contest in a row, leaving Kawhi Leonard with a significantly larger workload, while affording more minutes to be spread around on the wing. George will have played in just 26 of the teams first 46 outings, with his next chance to take the court coming Sunday against Orlando.
Los Angeles Clippers point guard Patrick Beverley has been deemed questionable to play in Fridays game versus the Miami Heat due to a groin ailment that kept him out Wednesday. For those in search of positive news, he was upgraded from doubtful, which could mean there is optimism surrounding his chances of taking the floor. Lou Williams and Landry Shamet figure to continue seeing increased workloads should Beverley remain out of the mix, which will mean that owners will want to check back before tip-off to get the final word on whether or not he will be given the green light to get back into action.
Los Angeles Clippers shooting guard/small forward Kawhi Leonard connected on 12 of 29 shooting en route to a team-high 36 points in the 110-107 victory over the Mavericks on Tuesday. Leonard struggled from downtown as he connected on just one of nine, but he made up for it at the line where he went 11-for-12. He went on to add 11 rebounds with three steals and two blocks. The Clippers play again on Wednesday, so we can assume Leonard will be sitting that one out with it being the second night of the back-to-back set. Expect Lou Williams and Landry Shamet to soak up some extra minutes.
