      Clippers' Lance Stephenson: Will start Friday versus Portland

      Stephenson will start Friday in Portland, Rowan Kavner of reports. After logging just two minutes total in the prior two games, Stephenson will return to the starting lineup for the Clippers Friday. Paul Pierce is getting the night off to rest, which gave Stephenson an opportunity to get back in the rotation. He'll look to take advantage of the opportunity.

      Clippers' Lance Stephenson: Minimal playing time afforded

      Stephenson had no minutes afforded Thursday against the Warriors and played two minutes in Saturday's win over Detroit. The small forward may no longer be part of the Clippers' rotation considering he didn't play Thursday and recorded a mere two minutes Saturday. Also, with J.J. Redick out due to a back injury, Stephenson should especially have increased playing time, which is more of an indication that he may leave the rotation.

      Clippers' Lance Stephenson: Will come off the bench Saturday versus Detroit

      Clippers' Lance Stephenson: Posts season-high 11 points Thursday

      Stephenson managed 11 points (5-13 FG, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists, two steals, and a block over 30 minutes in Thursday's 118-104 loss to the Suns. The playing time was a season high for the Clippers' offseason acquisition, with the 11 points also serving as his top scoring figure so far in the 2015-16 campaign. Despite his first double-digit scoring effort since last April, Stephenson continued to struggle from the field, managing to drain only 39 percent of his shots Thursday. Although he continues to sit atop the small forward depth chart, the 25-year-old is averaging only 6.2 points on the season and had only played a maximum of 24 minutes in a game prior to Thursday's contest, making him a mediocre fantasy option in virtually any format.

      Clippers' Lance Stephenson: Scores five points Monday versus Suns

      Stephenson only managed five points, six rebounds, and two assists with a turnover in the Clippers' win against the Suns on Monday. Stephenson got the start once again, but he actually played fewer minutes than fellow small forward Paul Pierce. That being said, Pierce and small forward Josh Smith put up numbers similar to Stephenson, meaning that Stephenson should continue to see solid minutes whether he's starting or not. He'll need to improve upon his 5.5 PPG he's posted through four games if he wants to be more relevant in most fantasy formats, however.

      Clippers' Lance Stephenson: Starting at small forward

      Stephenson will get the start at small forward Wednesday, James Ham of Cowbell Kingdom reports. The Clippers added plenty of wing depth this offseason, so coach Doc Rivers has several options at small forward between Stephenson, Paul Pierce, Josh Smith and Wes Johnson. It will be Stephenson who gets the nod on opening night, but at this point it's somewhat unclear what his role will be. With Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan on the floor, it will certainly be interesting to see how Stephenson's creative playmaking abilities are utilized.

      Clippers' Lance Stephenson: Could start at small forward

      Coach Doc Rivers said Monday that Stephenson will "most likely" get the start on opening night, but Rivers also noted that Paul Pierce worked with the first group at Monday's practice, Rowan Kavner of reports. The Clippers added significant depth on the wing this offseason, bringing in Stephenson via trade and also adding Wes Johnson and Paul Pierce. All three are in contention to start at small forward, but it looks as though Rivers is leaning toward Stephenson, despite his preseason woes. Stephenson did not score in double-figures in six contests and struggled with his outside shot, in particular, converting just 1-of-9 attempts. Given Stephenson's lengthy track record of unpredictability, it wouldn't be a surprise if Rivers switches up his starting lineup more often this season, and the veteran Pierce figures to be on the court most often in key, late-game situations.

      Clippers G Lance Stephenson struggling with shot in preseason

      Clippers guard Lance Stephenson (groin) has struggled with his shot in the Clippers' first two preseason games, going 2 for 14 from the field in games against the Raptors and Nuggets. Stephenson has been slowed in training camp due to inflammation of the pubic bone, but it wasn't deemed a serious enough issue to sideline him for the start of the preseason. After a dismal campaign in Charlotte, the Clippers are banking on Stephenson to bounce back and lift the team's bench unit, but he'll need to show some more inspired play in the exhibitions to come. In addition to Stephenson's inefficiency from the field, the Clippers are minus-25 in the 47 minutes he's been on the court so far.

      Clippers reach deal with Hornets, land Lance Stephenson

      The Clippers reached a deal to acquire Lance Stephenson from the Hornets. In return, the Clippers sent the Hornets both Spencer Hawes and Matt Barnes. Stephenson averaged only 8.2 points and 4.5 rebounds per game during this season, making the Hornets' acquisition of him last offseason a bust. At the time it seemed like a good move considering Stephenson was coming off a season with the Pacers where he averaged 13.8 points and 7.2 rebounds, both career highs. Barnes will probably be bought out of his deal by the Hornets before July 1, the report also states.
