Amir Coffey
Amir Coffey tallies 18 points, full stat line
Sun, Apr 14, 2024, 1:31 PM
Amir Coffey played 36 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Rockets, recording a line of 18 points (7-of-17 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), three rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one blocked shot.
Analysis: With the Clippers locked into their first-round matchup for a week or so, Coffey's playing time increased. He finished the regular season playing 31 minutes or more in four straight games, hitting double figures in scoring in each. With Norman Powell coming off the bench, Coffey will remain in a difficult spot regarding fantasy value in 2024-25. Brandon Boston Jr. (15/7/3/4 with two 3-pointers in 31 minutes) also had a productive afternoon in the Clippers' final regular season home game at Crypto.com Arena. Next up are the playoffs, with Dallas visiting Los Angeles for Game 1 on April 21.
Terance Mann
Terance Mann scores game-high 24 points Sunday
Sun, Apr 14, 2024, 1:17 PM
Terance Mann shot 10-of-14 from the field and 3-of-3 from the foul line in Sunday's 116-105 loss to the Rockets, scoring 24 points with six rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.
Analysis: Mann and P.J. Tucker were the lone “regular” starters in the rotation for Sunday's game, and the latter has only started recently due to Kawhi Leonard (knee) being sidelined. Mann had one of his best offensive games of the season, surpassing the 20-point mark for the third time. More valuable to the Clippers than fantasy managers, he finishes this season ranked outside the top 200 in 8- and 9-cat formats. As for Tucker, he only played eight minutes on Sunday, and Leonard's availability will dictate his minutes during the postseason. The Clippers host Dallas in Game 1 of their series on Sunday.
Paul George
Paul George (rest) ruled out Sunday vs. Houston

Ohm Youngmisuk on Twitter
Paul George (rest) is out for Sunday's game against the Rockets.
Analysis: The outcome of Sunday's game will not impact the Clippers' playoff seeding or matchup, so George is one of many rotation players who will not play. Amir Coffey and Brandon Boston Jr. should log heavy minutes, and rookie Kobe Brown is also available to play.
Bones Hyland
Bones Hyland ruled out vs. Rockets Sunday
Sun, Apr 14, 2024, 8:05 AM
Justin Russo on X
Bones Hyland will not play against Houston on Sunday.
Analysis: Hyland wasn't initially on the injury report, but he also wasn't in the starting unit, so him not playing makes sense. Xavier Moon will get the start at point guard and should play a ton of minutes. Hyland has played well lately, but he hasn't been part of the team's rotation for most of the year. Perhaps they have plans to play him in the postseason, especially if James Harden continues to deal with this foot injury. Otherwise, it is puzzling why he isn't playing in this one.
James Harden
Harden, Westbrook, Kai Jones out Sunday vs. HOU
Sun, Apr 14, 2024, 7:57 AM
Tomer Azarly on Twitter
James Harden (right knee soreness), Russell Westbrook (rest), and Kai Jones are out for Sunday's game against the Rockets.
Analysis: Harden has dealt with foot and knee soreness recently, and with the Clippers locked into their first-round matchup, there's no need to have him play. Westbrook is healthy but is sitting for the same reason. As for Jones, his signing became official on Saturday, and his absence does not impact the Clippers' rotation.
Xavier Moon
LAC starting Moon, Mann, Coffey, PJ, Plumlee
Sun, Apr 14, 2024, 7:54 AM
Law Murray on X
The Clippers will start Xavier Moon, Terance Mann, Amir Coffey, PJ Tucker and Mason Plumlee against the Rockets on Sunday.
Analysis: The Clippers will be without most of their usual starters for this game, which will allow some of the younger guys to continue to play big minutes. Bones Hyland isn't starting, but he should still play a significant role off the bench. Kai Jones isn't available to play in this game.
James Harden
James Harden (foot) questionable vs. Houston
Sat, Apr 13, 2024, 1:49 PM
NBA Injury Report
James Harden (right knee soreness) is questionable to play against the Rockets on Sunday.
Analysis: Harden was able to play in their last game after missing their two previous games. However, he only played 10 minutes, as Ty Lue benched his starters early in this game. Russell Westbrook may start in his place if Harden is sidelined, but Bones Hyland will see the bulk of the minutes at point guard either way.
Kawhi Leonard
Kawhi Leonard (knee) remains out for finale
Sat, Apr 13, 2024, 1:48 PM
NBA Injury Report
Kawhi Leonard (right knee soreness) will remain sidelined for Sunday's game against the Rockets.
Analysis: Leonard will wrap up the regular season with an eighth straight absence. Ty Lue barely played their starters in their last game, so Leonard wouldn't have played many minutes if he suited up. We'll see if Kawhi is at full strength for their first round series against Dallas.
Kai Jones
Shams: Clippers sign Kai Jones to multi-year deal
Sat, Apr 13, 2024, 6:27 AM
Shams Charania on Twitter
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Clippers are signing Kai Jones to a multi-year deal.
Analysis: A first-round pick of the Hornets in 2021, Jones failed to establish himself before being waived in mid-October. While he did agree to a 10-day contract with the 76ers in mid-March, Jones did not appear in a game for the team due to a hamstring injury. He's eligible for the postseason, but Jones is highly unlikely to be in the rotation. To make room for him on the roster, the Clippers are waiving Joshua Primo.
Paul George
Paul George logs eight minutes vs. Utah Friday
Fri, Apr 12, 2024, 7:13 PM
Paul George only played eight minutes on Friday and finished with 10 points (3-of-5 FGs), one rebound, one assist, one steal, one block and two triples against the Jazz.
Analysis: The Clippers have clinched the fourth seed in the West and will match up against the Mavs for the third time in the last five seasons. Aside from Kawhi Leonard, their starters played in this game, though Ty Lue severely limited their minutes. If they suit up at all in the regular season finale on Sunday, they will likely play very small roles once again. Bones Hyland, Amir Coffey, Brandon Boston Jr. and Daniel Theis were the only players that played over 20 minutes in this game for the Clippers, though Kobe Brown and Xavier Moon also played large reserve roles. The rotation should be similar against the Rockets.
Bones Hyland
Bones Hyland stays hot with 20/5/6/3/1 line
Fri, Apr 12, 2024, 7:09 PM
Bones Hyland led the Clippers with 20 points (7-of-17 FGs), five rebounds, six assists, three steals, one block and three triples in a 110-109 loss to Utah on Friday.
Analysis: Hyland didn't get the start in this game, but Tyronn Lue benched the starters really early in this game, so he was still able to play a ton of minutes. After scoring a career-high 37 points in their last game, Bizzy Bones had another big performance in this one. With the Clippers locked into the fourth-seed in the West, Bones should play a ton of minutes in the regular season finale once again on Sunday. He still has plenty of talent, but he hasn't been able to showcase it while buried on the depth chart. This has been a fun reminder of how good he is, and he should get the chance to provide consistent production in the future.
James Harden
James Harden (foot) available Friday vs. Utah
Fri, Apr 12, 2024, 2:53 PM
Law Murray on Twitter
James Harden (right knee soreness) is available for Friday's game against the Jazz.
Analysis: Harden returns to the Clippers lineup after a two-game absence, meaning Russell Westbrook will come off the bench. The Clippers remain without Kawhi Leonard (knee), who has not appeared in a game since March 31.
Paul George
Paul George, Russell Westbrook available Friday
Thu, Apr 11, 2024, 1:38 PM
NBA Injury Report
Paul George (left knee soreness) and Russell Westbrook (left hand contusion) are off the injury report for Friday's game against the Jazz.
Analysis: George and Westbrook sat out Wednesday's loss to the Suns, the Clippers' second game in as many nights. They're both available for Friday, but it's unknown how much they'll play since Los Angeles already knows its seed (four) and first-round opponent (Dallas).
Kawhi Leonard
Kawhi Leonard out, James Harden questionable Fri.
Thu, Apr 11, 2024, 1:34 PM
NBA Injury Report
Kawhi Leonard (right knee soreness) is out for Friday's game against the Jazz, while James Harden (right foot inflammation) is questionable.
Analysis: Leonard remains sidelined, leaving him with one last opportunity (Sunday vs. Houston) to get in some game reps before the postseason. As for Harden, the door is open for him to play against the Jazz after missing both of the Clippers' games against the Suns. If he cannot play, Russell Westbrook will serve as the starting point guard.
Mason Plumlee
Mason Plumlee posts double-double in spot start
Wed, Apr 10, 2024, 7:21 PM
Mason Plumlee logged 35 minutes in Wednesday's loss to Phoenix, accumulating 12 points (4-of-9 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), 12 rebounds, four assists, and one steal.
Analysis: Starting center Ivica Zubac was available to play on Wednesday, but it became clear that Clippers coach Tyronn Lue had no plans to play him. While Big Zu picked up a DNP-CD, Plumlee handled most of the minutes at the center position, playing 35 to Daniel Theis' ten. Plumlee finished with a solid double-double, his first since January 26, and four assists. As for Theis, he shot 1-of-2 from the field and finished with two points and three rebounds.
Brandon Boston
Brandon Boston Jr. tallies 23 points, full line
Wed, Apr 10, 2024, 7:17 PM
Brandon Boston Jr. shot 10-of-24 from the field and 1-of-2 from the foul line in Wednesday's loss to the Suns, accounting for 23 points, seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block, and two 3-pointers in 40 minutes.
Analysis: While Bones Hyland established a new career-high on Wednesday, Boston finished the loss with a season-high point total. The 23 points were the most he's scored in a game since January 29, 2023 (24 vs. Cleveland). Also, this was his third double-digit scoring effort of the season. Given how shorthanded the Clippers were on Wednesday, fantasy managers in active leagues should only add Boston if Tyronn Lue decides to keep his stars sidelined (or limited) for the final two games of the regular season.
Bones Hyland
Bones Hyland scores career-high 37 points vs. Suns
Wed, Apr 10, 2024, 7:10 PM
Bones Hyland played 43 minutes in Wednesday's 124-108 loss to the Suns, accounting for 37 points (15-of-29 FGs, 1-of-1 FTs), four rebounds, nine assists, three steals, and six 3-pointers.
Analysis: Multiple Clippers were sidelined due to injury or injury management reasons, leading to Hyland moving into the starting lineup. He made the most of his opportunity, tallying a career-high 37 points while also tallying nine assists, three steals, and six 3-pointers. The Clippers are locked into their first-round matchup, as they'll face the Mavericks. If Tyronn Lue prioritizes ensuring the Clippers have home-court advantage, Hyland's minutes could be limited. If the priority is to keep the main contributors healthy, we could get another episode of the “Bones Hyland Show” before the regular season ends.
Terance Mann
Terance Mann (rest) will not return on Wednesday
Wed, Apr 10, 2024, 6:05 PM
Law Murray on Twitter
Terance Mann (rest) has been ruled out for the remainder of Wednesday's game against the Suns.
Analysis: The Clippers are prioritizing rest, as their playoff matchup (Dallas) is locked in. Mann played the first eight minutes on Wednesday, tallying three points (1-of-3 FGs, 1-of-1 FTs) and three rebounds before heading to the bench. Brandon Boston Jr. started the third quarter and will play plenty in the second half.
Ivica Zubac
Ivica Zubac (ankle) will play vs. Phoenix
Wed, Apr 10, 2024, 3:33 PM
NBA Injury Report
Ivica Zubac (left ankle inflammation) will play against the Suns on Wednesday.
Analysis: Zubac was initially listed as questionable, but he will be able to suit up in this game. Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, James Harden and Russell Westbrook have all been ruled out, so Zubac may see more shots than he is accustomed to getting.
Russell Westbrook
Russell Westbrook (hand) out Wednesday vs. Suns
Wed, Apr 10, 2024, 2:55 PM
Law Murray on Twitter
Russell Westbrook (left hand contusion) is out for Wednesday's game against Phoenix.
Analysis: Westbrook joins James Harden, Paul George, and Kawhi Leonard on the sideline for Wednesday's game. His absence means Bones Hyland will start at the point, and while erratic, he's worth streaming in active leagues due to the Clippers' lack of healthy options. Xavier Moon could also enter the rotation, but Hyland is the player who fantasy managers should target in this spot.
