Kennard played two minutes Friday in the Clippers' 119-99 win over the Grizzlies, tallying one rebound and no other statistics. After losing in a blowout to the Grizzlies on Thursday, the Clippers returned the favor in Friday's rematch. Though the non-competitive nature of both games allowed LA to give some extra run to reserves, the fact that Kennard only earned eight minutes of playing time between the contests indicates that he's fallen out of favor for head coach Tyronn Lue. Kennard's fall out of the rotation is a major surprise, given that he signed a four-year, $64 million extension with the club back in December.
Kennard (knee) was active but didn't leave the bench Friday in the Clippers' 116-112 win over the Jazz. Though Kennard was cleared to play Friday after missing the Clippers' previous game Wednesday due to a knee injury, his lack of use either means that he was only available in an emergency, or he was held out in a coach's decision. The returns of Kawhi Leonard (leg), Paul George (toe) and Nicolas Batum (concussion) from multi-game absences lessened the need for the Clippers to rely on Kennard, who has typically only played around 15-to-20 minutes when the team has its full complement of guards and forwards available this season.
Kennard (knee) is available for Friday's game against the Jazz, Mirjam Swanson of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Kennard missed Wednesday's game due to right knee soreness, but he'll be active in a reserve role against Utah. The 24-year-old is averaging 6.6 points and 2.8 rebounds over 21.4 minutes per game across his past five appearances.
Kennard (knee) is questionable for Friday's game against the Jazz, Mirjam Swanson of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Kennard missed his first game of the season in Wednesday's victory over Utah and he's uncertain for the second end of the rematch. The 24-year-old has mostly been a single-digit scorer for the Clippers this season, averaging just 8.0 points per contest.
Kennard (knee) will not play in Wednesday's matchup with the Jazz, Mirjam Swanson of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Although he wasn't listed on the injury report coming into Wednesday night's game, Kennard is apparently dealing with right knee soreness. As a result, Marcus Morris and Terance Mann are likely to see increased minutes; Paul George (toe), Kawhi Leonard (lower leg) and Nicolas Batum (concussion) are also sidelined with injuries.
