I. Zubac - C
Ivica Zubac posted his second double-double in as many games Tuesday, registering 13 points (3-of-5 FGs, 7-of-8 FTs), 10 rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes vs. Atlanta.
Zubac has played some good basketball over the last week, tallying three double-doubles in a four-game stretch. Providing 12th-round value in 9-cat for the season, the 7-footer has been a top-75 player during this seven-day stretch. Zubac is rostered in 32% of Yahoo leagues, and with Kawhi Leonard and Paul George (health and safety protocols) both away from the team it wouldn’t be a bad idea to roll the dice on the big fella.

L. Williams - PG
Lou Williams shot 4-of-14 from the field and 2-of-2 from the foul line in Tuesday’s loss in Atlanta, posting a line of 11 points, three rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes.
Williams had to sit out two games earlier this month due to discomfort in his left hip, and the issue continues to linger. Following Tuesday’s defeat he said that the hip is still bothering him a “little bit,” which isn’t good news for the shorthanded Clippers. L.A. was down three starters on Tuesday, as Patrick Beverley (knee), Kawhi Leonard and Paul George (health and safety protocols) did not make the trip east. With Leonard and George expected to miss at least one week, Williams’ scoring ability is of even greater importance. The Clippers don't play again until Friday, so hopefully the extra day will benefit the veteran guard.

N. Batum - SF
Nicolas Batum played 33 minutes in Tuesday’s loss to the Hawks, accounting for five points (2-of-7 FGs), four rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer.
Batum didn’t have his best night shooting the basketball, as he was just 1-of-5 from beyond the arc. But he isn’t going to lack for scoring opportunities in the immediate future, as Kawhi Leonard and Paul George (health and safety protocols) aren’t expected to return until February 2 at the earliest. While Batum played the majority of his minutes at the four Tuesday night, there was a stretch during the third quarter in which he shares the court with both Marcus Morris and Serge Ibaka. Don’t be surprised if Tyronn Lue goes to that look more often, as the Clippers adjust to life without Leonard and George. Despite ranking just outside of the top-50 in 9-cat, Batum is rostered in just 56% of Yahoo leagues. That percentage is way too low given the current state of the Clippers' rotation.

R. Westbrook - PG
Russell Westbrook struggled against his former team on Tuesday, shooting 7-of-17 to finish with 19 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists and six turnovers.
Before the game, Scott Brooks said he thought Russ had been deferring too much and he needs to attack more in transition after defensive rebounds. Well, he attacked more but he wasn't very effective, missing 10 shots and half of his eight free-throw attempts. Westbrook is now 10-of-28 in two games since returning from his quad injury and is shooting just 37% from the floor with five turnovers a game this season. No wonder he's referred to as 'Westbrick.'

M. Morris - PF
Marcus Morris shot 3-of-9 from the field and 4-of-4 from the foul line in Tuesday’s loss to the Hawks, finishing with 10 points, five rebounds and one steal in 24 minutes.
Two days after sitting out a game due to illness, Morris was able to take on his usual workload in Atlanta. The absences of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George (health and safety protocols) shouldn’t impact Morris much when it comes to his minutes, but he may get a few more opportunities to put the ball in the basket.

T. Mann - SG
Making his first start of the season, Terance Mann finished Tuesday’s loss to the Hawks with 10 points (4-of-8 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs), nine rebounds, one assist, four steals and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.
With Kawhi Leonard and Paul George both away from the team due to the league’s health and safety protocols, Mann not only made his first start of the season but also played a season-high 34 minutes. In the four games prior, he played a total of 19 minutes. Mann matched his season high with the nine rebounds, and the four steals are a career-best. He’s rostered in 1% of Yahoo leagues, and given the absences it wouldn’t be a bad idea to roll the dice on the second-year wing.

L. Kennard - SG
Luke Kennard finished Tuesday’s loss to the Hawks with 13 points (5-of-13 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs), three rebounds, two assists, four steals and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.
Kennard had a career night defensively, as he tallied four steals. With Kawhi Leonard and Paul George both away from the team due to the league’s health and safety protocols, Kennard will have more opportunities to produce as a starter. Kennard should get at least three more starts, as the earliest that Leonard and George are expected back is February 2 (at Brooklyn). He’s currently rostered in 20% of Yahoo leagues, so fantasy managers will want to grab Kennard off of the waiver wire.

R. Jackson - PG
Reggie Jackson played 39 minutes in Tuesday’s loss to the Hawks, posting a line of 20 points (8-of-16 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), seven rebounds, eight assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.
With Patrick Beverley (knee), Kawhi Leonard and Paul George (health and safety protocols) all not even making the trip east, Jackson was tabbed to make a spot start. And he made the most of his opportunity, shooting 50% from the field while filling the stat sheet. The Clippers don’t play again until Friday in Orlando, and depending upon what happens with Beverley (Leonard and George will miss at least one week), Jackson would be a very good streaming option. He’s currently rostered in just 7% of Yahoo leagues.
