Felton finished with 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four rebounds, and two assists across 26 minutes during Thursday's 114-98 victory over the Grizzlies. Felton's minutes have been choppy since the return of Chris Paul, but finished Thursday's game with the most time on the floor since Paul's return, dropping 11 points in the process. While his impact on the court has been limited in the eight games that Paul has been back -- averaging just 5.0 points on 47.1 percent shooting, 2.1 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 0.9 steals across 16.9 minutes per game -- it's games like Thursday's outing against the defensive-minded Grizzlies that show he's still a very capable player. That being said, the fantasy value that he accumulated while Paul was absent has all but vanished, and he now remains valuable in only the deepest of fantasy formats.
Felton provided 13 points (4-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five assists, three rebounds and three steals over 24 minutes in Thursday's 123-113 loss to the Warriors. Felton got the second half off to a strong start, posting double digits in the scoring colum for the second consecutive game and shooting at least 57 percent for the third time in the last four contests. The veteran swingman has now notched at least 21 minutes in 10 straight contests, but could see his playing time take a hit as early as Friday night's tilt against the Spurs if Chris Paul (thumb) makes his return.
Felton finished with 11 points (5-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt), four rebounds, four steals, and three assists in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 99-84 win over the Hawks. Felton matched his season high in steals while scoring in double figures for the first time in the last five games. He is averaging 9.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.1 threes, 0.8 steals, and 0.3 blocks across 27.6 minutes during February. With Chris Paul (thumb) slated to return to action in early or mid-March, Felton's fantasy relevance might be coming to an end in the near future.
Felton scored just two points (1-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt) to go along with four rebounds and two assists over 21 minutes in Monday's 88-72 win against the Jazz. Felton has a couple of stinkers in his three games since returning to the bench for Doc Rivers. The Clippers are 3-0 during the stretch, though, so do not expect Felton's role to change anytime soon. He has still salvaged the line for fantasy owners with 5.3 rebounds and 4.0 assists while turning the ball over just two times in the three-game span.
Felton will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Knicks. The Knicks have some size in the frontcourt, so the Clippers will insert Luc Mbah a Moute into the starting lineup at small forward in order to matchup better with the bigger bodies. That said, Felton could see a slight decrease in minutes while working with the second unit after logging over 30 minutes in three of the Clippers' last four outings.
