Pistons' Rodney McGruder: Dealt to Pistons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGruder was traded to the Pistons on Wednesday as part of a three-team deal involving the Clippers and Nets, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

The Clippers will send McGruder to the Pistons and Landry Shamet to the Nets, while Brooklyn will ship the No. 19 pick to Detroit. In exchange, the Pistons will trade Luke Kennard to the Clippers.

Clippers' Rodney McGruder: Inefficient despite hefty minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGruder amassed nine points (2-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and two steals in 51 minutes during Friday's 107-103 victory over Oklahoma City.

Though he cracked double-digit boards for just the second time this year, McGruder's line was otherwise pretty light for all that playing time. That said, McGruder has the ability to connect from three-point territory, which should earn him some minutes (likely in the low teens) during the playoffs.

Clippers' Rodney McGruder: Gets nod in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGruder is starting Friday's game against the Thunder, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.

With Kawhi Leonard and Paul George out of the starting five and candidates to be rested, McGruder will draw his fourth start of the season. He's averaging 5.7 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.0 assists in 24.3 minutes when starting this year.

Clippers' Rodney McGruder: Logs 13 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGruder managed four points (2-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and three rebounds in 13 minutes during Saturday's 126-103 win over the Pelicans.

McGruder was one of six reserves on the team to earn double-digit minutes in the lopsided victory but didn't make a major impact. He also didn't see the floor during Thursday's tilt versus the Lakers, so his spot in the rotation seems tenuous at best.

Clippers' Rodney McGruder: Scores well in garbage time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGruder put up seven points (3-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt) over five minutes Friday in the Clippers' 132-103 win over the Nuggets.

After converting only seven field-goal attempts combined in the Clippers' prior eight contests, McGruder nearly managed half that total in the limited run he received Friday. The swingman didn't appear in the Clippers' previous game Wednesday in Phoenix, and he didn't check into Friday's contest until 4:32 remained in the fourth quarter, when Los Angeles was leading by 25. Based on his recent usage, McGruder doesn't look like he's viewed as a member of coach Doc Rivers' regular rotation at this point.

Clippers' Rodney McGruder: Back to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGruder will return to a reserve role in Tuesday's matchup with the Mavericks, Mike Peasley of the Dallas Mavericks Radio Network reports.

McGruder drew a spot start Saturday, but with Moe Harkless (back) returning he will fall back to a reserve role. As a result, he is expected to see a lesser workload.

Clippers' Rodney McGruder: Steps into starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGruder will get the start for Saturday's game against the Pelicans, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

McGruder will replace Moe Harkless, who's out with a back injury. Across two other starts this season, McGruder's posted 13 points, seven rebounds and two blocks in 41 minutes of play.

Clippers' Rodney McGruder: Plays in both ends of back-to-back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGruder logged 24 minutes off the bench Saturday in the Clippers' 109-106 loss to the Bulls, finishing with four points (1-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block.

After missing seven games with a hamstring strain, McGruder returned to action in Friday's 124-117 win over the Timberwolves, playing 15 minutes in the contest. Given that McGruder logged even more playing time in the second half of the back-to-back set, the Clippers apparently have no reservations with his health moving forward. McGruder doesn't project to see his minutes rise from this level, however, as he benefited from the extra run mainly because Kawhi Leonard (rest), Lou Williams (calf), Patrick Beverley (concussion) and JaMychal Green (back) all sat out. All four players could be back in action as soon as Tuesday against the Suns.

Clippers' Rodney McGruder: Will play 'a little bit'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGruder (hamstring), according to coach Doc Rivers, will play "a little bit, not a lot" during Friday's matchup against the Timberwolves, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.

McGruder is making his return after seven straight missed games due to a right hamstring strain. The Clippers will opt to take it easy with him, however, and he probably isn't viable in DFS as a result.

Echoing what coach Doc Rivers said before Wednesday's game against the Raptors, it looks like McGruder is going to return Friday following a seven-game absence due to a right hamstring strain. Prior to getting hurt, McGruder was averaging 4.0 points and 2.4 rebounds across 17.3 minutes per game.

Clippers' Rodney McGruder: Doubtful for Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGruder (hamstring) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Bucks, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

Clippers' Rodney McGruder: No timetable for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGruder (hamstring) is without a firm return timetable, Andrew Greif of the LA Times reports.

McGruder will miss a second straight game Sunday with a strained hamstring, and coach Doc Rivers didn't sound overly optimistic that the wing will be back anytime soon. "I don't think he's close to returning," Rivers told reporters pregame. McGruder has made a pair of starts this season -- including in Wednesday's win over Memphis -- but he's not much of a fantasy consideration in standard leagues.

Clippers' Rodney McGruder: Sitting out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGruder (hamstring) won't play Friday against the Spurs, Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.com reports.

McGruder exited Wednesday's 121-119 win over the Grizzlies with a right hamstring strain, and the injury will keep him out for at least one game. The exact severity of the injury is unclear, but McGruder's next chance to suit up will come Sunday against the Wizards.

Clippers' Rodney McGruder: Won't return Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGruder won't return to Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies after suffering a lower leg injury, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.

McGruder appeared to be grabbing his hamstring prior to leaving in the third quarter of Wednesday's game. That said, it's not totally clear what happened to McGruder as the team has yet to provide a more detailed description of the injury. Look for an update prior to Friday's tilt with San Antonio clarifying McGruder's availability.
