Zubac posted 13 points (3-5 FG, 7-8 FT), 10 rebounds and an assist across 18 minutes in Tuesday's loss against the Hawks. Zubac delivered another double-double despite coming off the bench, and he has accomplished that feat in three of his last four games. Zubac can certainly leave his mark on both ends of the court, but his upside will never be extremely high unless he manages to find a way to return to the starting lineup.
Zubac posted 10 points (5-6 FG), 11 rebounds, an assist and two blocks across 24 minutes off the bench in Sunday's win over the Thunder. Zubac came off the bench once again but paced the Clippers in rebounds while also posting his sixth double-digit scoring performance of the campaign. Perhaps most surprisingly, Zubac has two double-doubles over his last three games as a sub and should remain a steady presence in the Clippers' second unit. However, his upside won't be very high until he finds a way to crack the starting lineup on a permanent basis.
Zubac registered 11 points (4-5 FG, 3-3 FT), 12 rebounds and one blocked shot across 23 minutes in Wednesday's win over Sacramento. After scoring double-digit points in five of his first six contests this season, Zubac went through a spell of eight straight games without reaching the mark. He broke that streak Wednesday with 11 points while also notching his first double-digit rebounding effort of the campaign. Zubac has been mostly quiet to this point this season with per-game averages of 7.5 points and 5.1 rebounds, though he is shooting an ultra-efficient 70 percent from the field.
Zubac will start Sunday's game against the Pacers, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports. Serge Ibaka was a late scratch from Sunday's game due to a non-COVID-19 related illness, so Zubac will step in to make his first start of the season. The 23-year-old is averaging 7.4 points and 4.5 rebounds over 18.2 minutes per game to begin the year but should be in line for an increased role Sunday.
Zubac (abdominal) will be available for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports. After sustaining the injury in Sunday's win over the Bulls, Zubac went through pregame warmups and is good to go for the matchup with the Pelicans. So far this season, Zubac is averaging 7.4 points and 4.1 rebounds in 17.6 minutes of action per game. He will continue to serve as the primary backup to Serge Ibaka.
