Jordan Farmar (back) is available off the bench on Friday.

It looks like Farmar's back issue is improving, as he can now play in a game if needed, though he's not ready to play for an extended period of time. While Farmar isn't 100% yet, he should be good to go by mid-next week.

Blake Griffin is being investigated by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department for allegedly assaulting a man at a nightclub in Las Vegas in the early-morning hours Sunday.

The Clippers played a preseason game in Las Vegas on Saturday night and issues like this is likely why there will never be a professional franchise in Las Vegas as the potential for trouble is always looming. The league has yet to issue any statement and will likely wait until the Las Vegas police finish their investigation.

Chris Douglas-Roberts did not play Saturday due to a sprained ankle.

Douglas-Roberts is not expected to make much of an impact in his first season with the Clippers, so even when he is healthy it isn't going to change how he should be viewed in terms of fantasy. Unless there are a handful of injuries to players ahead of his on the depth chart he should be avoided in all formats.

Jordan Farmar left Saturday's game with back tightness. He is not expected to return.

The injury isn't considered serious, but so close to the start of the regular season, he'll stay out of the game to rest. Farmar averaged 10.1 points, 4.9 assists, and a career-best 1.7 three-pointers for the Lakers last season and signed a two-year deal to back up Chris Paul this season. His fantasy value is extremely limited as is, but obviously could see an uptick should anything happen to Paul.

Chris Douglas-Roberts will start at small forward for the Clippers Friday night.

Douglas-Roberts will start for the second game in a row, though this certainly doesn't set anything in stone, as he is the third Clipper to start at small forward this preseason. However, if he can perform well, he could earn the starting role for the time being.

Glen Davis is out with a right groin strain, but could return by season opener.

Davis suffered a groin strain, and it will keep him out for the remainder of the preseason. He should be back for the season opener, but if not, he'll be back on the court a few days after that.

DeAndre Jordan has started shooting 100 free throws after every practice before he leaves the gym. 

As a career .425 free throw shooter, this can only help Jordan's game. The real question here is whether the extra practice will matter in the long run, but you have to like Jordan's determination. This is something to keep an eye on because if he averages around 35 minutes like last season, he is going to head to the line more often than his career numbers dictate.
