Head coach Doc Rivers said Thursday that Shamet will remain in the starting lineup at small forward, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports. With that, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Patrick Beverley and Shamet will all remain in the starting lineup after Rivers rolled out that trio in the team's final game before the All-Star break. As a result, Garrett Temple will come off the bench for the foreseeable future while the Clippers get a better look at the promising young asset they received from Philadelphia.
Shamet started at small forward and produced eight points (3-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt), four assists, one steal and one rebound in 24 minutes Wednesday in the Clippers' 134-107 win over the Suns. After putting up double-digit points off the bench in his first two games with the Clippers, Shamet was promoted to the top unit Wednesday, with Garrett Temple heading to the bench. The appointment didn't bear much fruit for the rookie, who actually saw his playing time take a hit from the prior two contests as a byproduct of the big margin of victory. Expect Shamet to remain in the starting five for the Clippers' first game out of the All-Star break Feb. 22 in Memphis, but his overall fantasy upside is somewhat limited due to his lagging numbers in the non-offensive categories.
Shamet will start Wednesday's game against the Suns, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports. Shamet's set to replace Garrett Temple in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Suns. Through two games with the Clippers, the rookie guard's averaging 16.0 points, 3.5 threes, 2.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.5 steals in 30.0 minutes per game. Shamet's meshed well with the Clippers and figures to see a sizable role going forward.
Shamet put up 15 points (4-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 33 minutes Monday in the Clippers' 130-120 loss to the Timberwolves. Just two games into his tenure with the Clippers, Shamet has already made a quick impression on coach Doc Rivers with his hot shooting. The rookie has connected on seven of his first 12 three-point attempts with Los Angeles and took minutes away from starters Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Garrett Temple on Monday thanks to his hot shooting. Shamet doesn't typically offer much else beyond his scoring and three-point production, but he might be worth a look in shallow formats anyway if he ends up seeing 30 minutes on a regular basis.
Shamet supplied 17 points (5-9 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three assists, two rebounds, and one steal in 27 minutes during Saturday's 123-112 win over the Celtics. Shamet was superb in his Clippers debut, and the rookie keeps making it rain from beyond the arc. This is the seventh time Shamet has sunk at least four treys, and his ability to space the floor makes him a good bet to keep earning plenty of minutes going forward.
