Reed, with DeAndre Jordan (ankle) sidelined, will draw the start at center for Saturday's tilt against Sacramento, Elliott Teaford of the Torrance Daily Breeze reports. Reed has garnered spot time with the Clippers this season, seeing 10.2 minutes per game and posting 4.8 points and 2.8 rebounds. With Jordan out, he should see more run. He eclipsed 20 minutes played just two times this season, averaging 12.0 points and 7.0 rebounds across 21.5 minutes per game in those contests.
Reed had six points (3-5 FG), two blocks, one rebound, and one assist in 12 minutes during Tuesday's 120-107 loss to the Spurs. Reed recorded a season high in blocks and dropped his first dime in 2017-18. Though he has appeared in all 10 games, Reed has yet to earn more than 14 minutes in a contest. As long as DeAndre Jordan, who missed six games over the last six years, stays healthy, Reed is an afterthought in most fantasy formats.
Reed's arraignment hearing for a battery charge stemming from his Aug. 6 arrest in Miami has been rescheduled for Oct. 16, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Reed was initially on tap to appear in court Monday, but the proceedings were pushed back two weeks. Once Reed's case is heard in court, the big man could be subject to a suspension from the league office. Reed, who averaged 5.3 points and 4.7 rebounds in 14.5 minutes per game last season with the Heat, signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Clippers in July.
Reed was arrested early Sunday on a misdemeanor battery charge, ESPN.com reports. The arrest reportedly stems from a domestic violence incident, but with the legal process just beginning, we won't speculate on a potential absence for Reed. The Clippers have yet to comment, but the young big man, who signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with Los Angeles during this offseason, could face discipline depending on the outcome of his case.
Reed has agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Clippers, Chris Haynes of ESPN.com reports. In his second NBA season, Reed played a crucial role off the bench for the Heat last year, as he served as Hassan Whiteside's primary backup at center. Despite playing just over 14 minutes per game last year, Reed still managed to average 5.3 points and 4.7 rebounds per game while hitting 57 percent of his field goals. In Los Angeles, he'll add some needed depth to the center position behind DeAndre Jordan.
