Clippers' DeAndre Jordan: Explodes for career-high scoring total in Thursday loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jordan tallied 29 points (12-15 FG, 5-12 FT), 16 rebounds, two assists and two blocks over 39 minutes in Thursday's 104-101 loss to the Timberwolves.

Although his scoring total represented a career high, it was the points Jordan was unable to record that played a pivotal part in snapping the Clippers' seven-game winning streak. The big man was 4-of-8 from the line over a late five-possession stretch, leaving Los Angeles just short of catching the Timberwolves. Jordan was excellent for fantasy purposes, however, as his usage predictably skyrocketed with Chris Paul (thumb) joining Blake Griffin (knee) on the injured list. Jordan has now rattled off nine straight double-doubles and figures to continue providing significant production while his talented pair of teammates remain sidelined.

Clippers' Chris Paul: Undergoes successful thumb surgery Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Paul underwent successful surgery on his thumb Wednesday and is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks, Dan Woike of the Orange County Register reports.

Paul suffered a torn ligament in his thumb during Monday's win over the Thunder, and after surgery went according to plan, the his recovery timetable remains unchanged from the Clippers' initial projection. Austin Rivers and Raymond Felton are expected to cover the bulk of the minutes at point guard while Paul is sidelined, with Rivers representing the more intriguing fantasy pickup of the two due his scoring abilities. Sixth man Jamal Crawford also figures to see a bump in minutes and usage while the Clippers await the returns of Paul and Blake Griffin (knee), the latter of whom could be back within the next week or two. More updates should be available for Paul once he's cleared for on-court activity, but fantasy owners shouldn't expect him back until early March.

Clippers' Blake Griffin: One-to-two weeks away from a return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doc Rivers said Griffin (knee) is still about a week or two away from making a return to the court, Rowan Kavner of Clippers.com reports.

Griffin made some progress in his recovery earlier this week, taking part in some non-contact workouts that coach Doc Rivers felt were encouraging. However, Rivers said Wednesday that Griffin could be another week or two away, which puts his return at the back end of his original four-to-six week timetable. He'll continue to ramp up his activity moving forward and once he's cleared for full-contact practices, Griffin can then be considered on the brink of a return. The Clippers are expected to be without Chris Paul for the next six-to-eight weeks, so Griffin will have to take on a sizable role offensively to make up for Paul's production.

Clippers' Chris Paul: Will undergo thumb surgery, set to miss six-to-eight weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paul will undergo surgery Wednesday to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb and is expected to sit out six-to-eight weeks, Brad Turner of the L.A. Times reports.

Paul suffered the injury during Monday's game against the Thunder, as he was attempting to get around a screen while guarding Russell Westbrook. After an X-ray cleared him of a break, a subsequent MRI revealed a torn ligament, which will now require surgery and keep him out for upwards of one-to-two months. With Blake Griffin (knee) still out, the Clippers are going to be missing their two biggest playmakers, although the Clippers are hoping to have Griffin back soon as he's been able to take part in some non-contact work in recent weeks. With Paul sidelined for the indefinite future, Austin Rivers will likely shift over to point guard, despite recently starting at shooting guard. From there, the Clippers could opt to ride with their current three-guard approach, pushing Raymond Felton or Jamal Crawford into the starting lineup. That said, Rivers, Felton and Crawford should be the biggest beneficiaries in minutes for the duration of Paul's absence.

Clippers' Blake Griffin: Progressing in recovery, set to travel with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (knee) continues to progress in his recovery from an arthroscopic knee procedure, though he remains without a firm return date, the OC Register reports.

Coach Doc Rivers said Tuesday that Griffin is starting to regain his movement and athleticism in recent non-contact workouts. "He looks like he's explosive again," Rivers said. "Early in the year, he was facing up and blowing by guys. You could tell once his knee started getting sore, he wasn't doing it as much anymore. It was clear." Griffin, who averaged 21.2 points, 8.8 rebounds and 4.7 assists before undergoing the procedure on Dec. 20, is without a target return date, but the team initially handed down a timetable of 4-to-6 weeks. Tuesday marks the start of that timetable, and as of now it appears Griffin will be back on the court sooner, rather than later. It's highly unlikley that Griffin will play Thursday against the Timberwolves, but the plan is for him to travel with the team on its upcoming three-game road swing, which begins Saturday in Denver. The Clippers then head to Atlanta on Monday and Philadelphia on Tuesady before returning home in advance of next Saturday's showdown with the Warriors in Oakland.
