Bass totaled 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and one assist over 12 minutes in Monday's 125-96 win over the Rockets. Bass made the most of his limited opportunity, tallying double-digit points for the first time since March 21 in the process. Bass hadn't seen more than eight minutes since that contest and had been left out of the rotation in five games over that span, so his opportunity Monday was essentially an outlier. The 12-year veteran could see some playing time in Wednesday's regular-season finale versus the Kings if the game turns into a blowout, but a potential role in the postseason rotation would be hard to predict at this point.
Bass went for 15 points (6-8 FG, 3-5 FT), three rebounds, one steal and one block over 24 minutes in Thursday's 129-114 loss to the Nuggets. After being out of the rotation over the last three games -- and in five of the last seven overall -- Bass received plenty of run with the Clippers' starting frontcourt of DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin sitting for rest. The 12-year veteran responded with his second-highest scoring total of the season in what equaled his largest allotment of minutes on the campaign, but he's likely to go right back to a reduced or non-existent role as soon as Saturday night's tilt versus the Cavaliers.
Bass (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 116-102 win over the Celtics on Monday. Bass hasn't appeared in three of the Clippers' last five games with coach Doc Rivers leaning primarily on DeAndre Jordan, Blake Griffin and Marreese Speights to handle the bulk of the minutes in the frontcourt. With averages of 5.6 points and 2.5 rebounds in 11.6 minutes per game on the season, Bass should remain on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Bass (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 107-102 loss to the Celtics on Sunday. With Blake Griffin having played in five straight games following his return from a knee procedure, there's been fewer minutes to go around in the frontcourt lately, and Bass now looks like he'll be at risk of falling out of the rotation some nights. Bass had only been averaging 7.5 points and 2.5 rebounds in 12.3 minutes per game in his four appearances prior to Sunday, so most fantasy owners were likely already ignoring him anyway.
Bass supplied 10 points (5-5 FG, 0-1 FT), four rebounds, four assists and a steal over 19 minutes in Thursday's 104-101 loss to the Timberwolves. The veteran forward continues to be efficient in his modest bench role, and he notably outpaced fellow big man Mareese Speights in playing time on the night. Bass has back-to-back 10-point efforts and has been in double digits in the scoring column in four of seven January contests. While he's seeing only an average of 13.4 minutes in those games, Bass is averaging a season-high 7.0 points in the current month.
