Motley finished Monday's win over the Skyforce with 33 points (13-20 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 7-9 FT), 13 rebounds and three assists.
Motley only continues to build upon his strong 2017-18 G League numbers, averaging 3.6 points (25.8 season average) and 1.6 rebounds (11.2 season average) more per game despite playing a similar amount of minutes. It seems likely the forward won't spend the entire season in the G League, but so long as the Clippers continue to do well on the NBA level, there might not be room for Motley on the 15-man active roster.
Motley did not play in Friday's win over Austin due to an undisclosed injury.
It's unclear what might have caused Motley to miss Friday's game, but the two-way player will have an opportunity to take the court Sunday when Agua Caliente travels to face the Blue on Sunday.
Motley was recalled from the G League on Thursday, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.
Motley has spent the entire start of the season with the A.C. Clippers, as there would be no minutes available for him in Los Angeles. Now, with Marcin Gortat currently nursing back spasms, the Clippers may be in need of some additional frontcourt depth for the time being. Even with being recalled, however, Motley will likely not see any minutes off the bench Thursday.
Motley hit all his shots in Tuesday's preseason loss to the Nuggets, contributing six points (3-3 FG) and four rebounds across six minutes.
Motley was acquired in the offseason via trade and should play a limited role off the bench for the Clippers. The second-year big man played in 11 games for the Mavericks last year, scoring 8.7 points and grabbing 4.5 rebounds in 16.0 minutes per game, including two games of 20-plus points. Although he has demonstrated some ability to provide points and rebounds if given the opportunity, Motley likely won't have a large enough role to provide value in standard formats.
