Wallace is starting at small forward for Thursday's matchup against the Kings, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.
Wallace exploded for 22 points, six rebounds, four assists and two steals in the team's game Wednesday against the Warriors, which has seemingly earned him a starting spot, even with Milos Teodosic (foot) returning. It's unclear what kind of run he'll see, but he's averaged 28.0 minutes over the past three games.
Wallace posted 22 points (7-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 7-9 FT), six rebounds, four assists and two steals across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 125-106 win over the Warriors.
Just signed to a two-way contract last Friday in the wake of the Clippers' multiple backcourt injuries, Wallace managed a career-best scoring haul in what was his most extended stint of playing time over the three games he's suited up for. The game marked a homecoming of sorts for the 2016 second-round pick, who'd starred in the Bay Area during his college career at the University of California. Wallace has now posted double-digit scoring in all three contests in a Clippers uniform, leading to averages of 15.3 points (on 46.7 percent shooting, including 66.7 percent from three-point range), 3.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.7 steals across 28.3 minutes. With Austin Rivers (heel) and Milos Teodosic (foot) both hampered by uncertain recovery timetables, Wallace remains an asset very much worthy of fantasy consideration for the moment, particularly in deeper formats.
In need of some backcourt depth in the wake of injuries to Patrick Beverley, Austin Rivers and Milos Teodosic, the Clippers waived Jamil Wilson and will replace him on the roster with Wallace, who had been playing for the team's G-League affiliate. The 60th pick in the 2016 draft, Wallace appeared in 23 G-League games this season, averaging 22.8 points, 5.4 assists, 4.6 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game. It's unclear what kind of role he'll play right away, but he could have some utility in deeper formats while Rivers is out, particularly if Teodosic, who's day-to-day with a foot issue, misses any time.
Wallace failed to make the Clippers' final roster, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Wallace posted 23 points (7-16 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 7-10 FT), six rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block across 45 minutes in Friday's 111-104 preseason loss to the Lakers.
With head coach Doc Rivers sitting all of his regulars for the exhibition finale, Wallace was one of several young players who were given all the run they could handle on the first team. The former Jazz second-round pick turned in a well-rounded stat line, but with the impressive depth the Clippers boast at the point guard position, he appears destined for the G-League this coming season if the team does retain his rights.
