Jackson finished with five points (2-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt), six assists, three rebounds and one steal in 22 minutes during Monday's 124-97 victory over Memphis.
With Patrick Beverley back, Jackson shifted to the bench. He did lead the team in assists Monday, but that's where the good news ends. As long as the Clippers are running close to full strength, Jackson is going to be a backup who sees neither the minutes nor the opportunities that he had in Detroit.
Morris totaled 13 points (5-11 Fg, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two assists, one rebound, one steal and one block in 24 minutes during Monday's 124-97 victory over Memphis.
Morris managed to contribute despite the return of both Paul George and Patrick Beverley, though he didn't exactly fill up the stat sheet. With the Clippers back to full strength, Morris is likely to fade out of standard-league consideration. Still, he could see boosts from time to time when the team's main pieces receive rest days.
Beverley notched just six points (2-3 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 19 minutes during Monday's 124-97 victory over the Grizzlies.
Beverley was back in action after missing the previous five games with a groin injury. Despite starting, Beverley was limited to just 19 minutes, likely as a result of both injury management and this game being a blowout. Beverley is a top-100 player when the minutes are there, although it may take him a few games to return to that level.
George ended with seven points (3-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists and a block in 21 minutes during Monday's 124-97 victory over the Grizzlies.
After missing just one game with a hamstring issue, George got back on the floor Monday, though he struggled with his shot. Given his recent injury troubles, the Clippers are likely to be extra cautious with him moving forward. George remains a strong buy-low candidate until he gets back to full speed.
Guy scored 30 points (8-15 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT) in Monday's blowout win over Salt Lake City.
Though he converted only 2-of-6 shots from two-point range, Guy compensated by drilling 6-of-9 shots from beyond the arc and making all four of his attempts from the charity stripe. The rookie second-round draft pick is averaging a healthy 20.5 points on the season and ranks fourth in the G League with 121 three-pointers.
Jeffries tallied 33 points (11-14 FG, 7-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT) along with eight rebounds and five assists in a G League win over Salt Lake City on Monday.
Jeffries was on fire from the field in the win, making all four of his two-point attempts while shooting 7-of-10 from beyond the arc. The two-way player is averaging 27.0 points and 8.3 boards over his last three G League games.
Mitchell scored 38 points (11-19 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 10-12 FT), while tacking on four rebounds, four assists and a steal during Utah's 131-111 loss to the Suns on Monday. He also had four turnovers.
Despite the Jazz getting dismantled, Mitchell was excellent in his duel against Devin Booker. His six made threes matched a season best and fueled his second-highest scoring output of the campaign. The Jazz are on a four-game skid, but Mitchell is now 23-of-43 for 69 points in the last two contests. He remains locked in as a top-10 shooting guard across fantasy formats.
Bogdanovic posted 16 points (4-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 8-8 FT), three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 34 minutes during Monday's loss to the Suns.
Bogdanovic was perfect from the charity stripe, but he attempted all of them in the first half and totaled just two points in the second half. His vanishing act was certainly a factor in the Jazz being outscored by 20 after halftime. The Croatian attempted just three shots from downtown, matching his lowest figure of the season, and this marks just the second game all year in which he's failed to hit a triple. Bogdanovic will have a tough matchup when Utah welcomes the Celtics on Wednesday.
Gobert tallied 13 points (3-5 FG, 7-8 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block across 37 minutes in Utah's 131-111 Monday night loss to Phoenix.
Gobert torched the Suns for 18 rebounds the last time these teams met, but he provided owners no such value Monday as the Suns stuck to the exterior and shot 60 percent from behind the arc. No player had more than nine rebounds. The silver lining is that Gobert was quite productive at the free-throw line. He has yet to record single-digit rebounds in three consecutive games this season, but that streak is in jeopardy, as he's recorded just 14 total boards in the last two games -- a highly unusual development for a guy who's averaging 14.3 per game.
Conley finished with eight points (4-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt) one assist and three turnovers in 22 minutes during Monday's 131-111 loss to the Suns.
After scoring at least 10 points in seven straight games coming in, Conley failed to display much offensive initiative Monday. That said, he didn't see much court time, and his role down the stretch lacks clarity at the moment. Ricky Rubio (22 points, 11 dimes, seven steals) got the last laugh over Conley and the Jazz in this revenge game.
