Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Double-doubles against Suns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac ended with 18 points (7-9 FG, 4-5 FT), 12 rebounds and one block in 25 minutes during Tuesday's 117-115 loss to the Suns.

Zubac finally got things going after a slow start to bubble life, turning in an impressive double-double. He went toe-to-toe with Deandre Ayton and certainly held his own. Zubac doesn't have the highest fantasy ceiling, but until Montrezl Harrell (personal) returns, he is worth considering as a backend center option.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Invisible in Thursday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac had just two points (1-3 FG), three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 15 minutes during Thursday's 103-101 loss to the Lakers.

Zubac started at center for the Clippers but failed to make an impact. In his defense, he'd played in only one scrimmage coming into the game. Zubac should continue to start even when Montrezl Harrell (personal) returns; however, his upside is capped no matter the situation. Until Harrell is back on deck, Zubac is worth a look as a flier if you need rebounds and efficiency from the floor.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Logs 13 minutes in Orlando debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac started and played 13 minutes Monday in the Clippers' 106-102 exhibition loss to the Kings. He finished with two points, six rebounds and one assist.

Zubac was making his first game appearance in the Orlando bubble after he arrived late to the Walt Disney World complex following a positive COVID-19 test. Though he never exhibited any symptoms of the coronavirus, Zubac still needed to clear all health-related protocol before he was deemed fit to play Monday. According to Jovan Buha of The Athletic, coach Doc Rivers was pleased with Zubac's performance in the scrimmage, so the 23-year-old should be ready to roll as the Clippers' starting center when the team resumes its regular-season slate Thursday against the Lakers.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Making bubble debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac is starting Monday's scrimmage against the Kings, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

Zubac was a late arrival to Orlando following a positive COVID-19 test, but he's cleared quarantine and is in the starting five at center.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: On way to Orlando
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac is on his way to join the Clippers in the Orlando bubble, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.

Zubac has been away from the team for undisclosed reasons, but he'll be in Orlando shortly. Once he arrives, he'll have to quarantine and pass two negative coronavirus tests before he can practice. As a result, he can be ruled out for Saturday's scrimmage against the Wizards, but he could play in the Clippers' final scrimmage Monday against the Kings.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Not practicing in Orlando
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac wasn't present at the Clippers' practice session Tuesday and may not have arrived in Orlando ahead of the NBA season restart, Joe Vardon of The Athletic reports.

Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reported back on July 10 that Zubac didn't accompany the Clippers' main traveling party to Orlando, but a team source suggested the center was set to join the club soon. A week and a half later, Zubac has yet to be spotted at team workouts, making it unclear whether or not he's made the trip to Orlando or is in the process of completing a mandatory self-quarantine period in his hotel room. Regardless, Zubac's continued absence from workouts puts his status in question for the season restart, as the Clippers are set to return to action July 30 against the Lakers. With Montrezl Harrell (personal) having left the Orlando bubble to tend to a family emergency, the Clippers could be forced to rely heavily on the newly signed Joakim Noah to fill minutes at center if both Zubac and Harrell are unavailable when the season resumes.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Perfect from field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac went for 17 points (6-6 FG, 5-6 FT), 12 rebounds and one block in 20 minutes during Thursday's 120-105 win at Houston.

Zubac is not known for his offensive contributions, to the point that he's topped the 15-point plateau just twice this season. In fact, the 17 points were a season-high mark for the big man, who continues to produce in other areas such as rebounds and field goal percentages with enough consistency to remain fantasy relevant.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Season-high 15 boards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac posted eight points (3-8 FG, 2-2 FT), 15 rebounds, two assists and a block across 20 minutes during Saturday's 112-103 loss to the Kings.

Considering that the Clippers shot just 39.1 percent from the field, there were plenty of misses for Zubac to clean up, as seven of his season-high 15 boards came on the offensive end. Saturday's effort also marked the seventh time this season Zubac has compiled double-digit boards in 20 or fewer minutes -- a tally that leads the league. In February, he's averaging 8.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, 1.4 blocks and 1.4 assists across 18.9 minutes while shooting 72.2 percent from the field.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Pulls down 11 boards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac posted six points (3-4 FG), 11 rebounds, one assist and one block across 21 minutes Sunday in the Clippers' 112-97 win over the Magic.

Zubac looked as though he might have started to cut into Montrezl Harrell's role as the Clippers' top center in mid-January, but the 22-year-old has since seen his playing time decline. While he's still offering strong per-minute production over his last five outings (6.6 points, 7.4 boards and 1.6 assists in 18.0 minutes), Zubac will remain more of a 14- or 16-team fantasy option until he seizes a larger portion of the center timeshare.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Efficient in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac delivered 11 points (5-6 FG, 1-2 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 15 minutes in the Clippers' 102-95 loss to the Hawks on Wednesday.

The young big was excellent from an efficiency standpoint, and he was a bit more involved offensively than usual with Kawhi Leonard (load management), Paul George (hamstring) and Patrick Beverley (groin) all sitting out the contest. Zubac's scoring tally was only his second of the double-digit variety since the calendar flipped to 2020, however, so his most consistent form of fantasy contribution continues to be on the boards, an area where he's averaging 7.1 rebounds per contest across 10 January games.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Sixth double-double of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac posted 12 points (6-8 FG), 10 rebounds, four blocks and two assists in 25 minutes during Tuesday's 128-103 win over the Cavaliers.

Zubac hadn't logged double-digit points or rebounds in any of his last three outings, but he snapped both of those streaks Tuesday while also finishing just one block shy of matching his season high in the category. The 25 minutes were also his second-most of the season, and it wasn't a garbage-time special, either. Zubac checked out of the contest with 1:52 remaining in third quarter and never returned, as coach Doc Rivers decided to roll with Montrezl Harrell at center even while the game was well in hand. Considering Kawhi Leonard also sat out the final 12 minutes, Zubac's lack of action in the fourth quarter may point to the 22-year-old potentially seeing his role grow in more competitive contests.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Strong game on glass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac scored eight points (4-8 FG) while adding 13 rebounds and a block in 23 minutes during Tuesday's 105-87 win over the Kings.

For the first time this season, the fourth-year center has produced double-digit boards in back-to-back games. Zubac remains a secondary part of the Clippers' game plan despite his consistent starting role -- through 13 games in December, he averaged 9.3 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 0.6 blocks in only 19.8 minutes a game.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Records double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac had 15 points (4-7 FG, 7-8 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists and one block over 28 minutes in Saturday's 120-107 loss to Utah.

Zubac didn't see an excessive amount of scoring chances from the floor Saturday, but he made the most of his opportunities at the charity stripe to top double-digit points for the fourth time in the past six games. The 22-year-old managed to record his sixth double-double of the season against the Jazz, but he's had inconsistent production for the Clippers this season, which limits his trustworthiness from a fantasy standpoint.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Falls just shy of double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac put up seven points (3-4 FG, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and one steal in 18 minutes Sunday in the Clippers' 118-112 loss to the Thunder.

Even with Kawhi Leonard (rest) sitting out, Zubac didn't benefit from much of a spike in usage and was held under 20 minutes for the fifth time in seven games. Though Zubac has produced effectively enough on a per-minute basis, it'll probably take an injury to second-unit stalwart Montrezl Harrell for the former to see enough run to be a consistently usable option in 12- or possibly even 14-team leagues.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Downward spiral continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac had just three points, four rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes during Thursday's 122-117 loss to Houston.

Zubac continues to trend in the wrong direction, putting up very little in the way of production. After flirting with 12-team value for the opening six weeks, Zubac has slipped to be the 235th ranked player over the past two weeks. As long as Montrezl Harrell is healthy, it appears Zubac is going to hover around the 15-minute mark on most nights, leaving him as a deep-league asset only.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Double-doubles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac supplied 14 points (6-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes during Friday's loss to Milwaukee.

Zubac was essentially the only Clipper to have a good game, as the Clippers were dismantled by Milwaukee. It was Zubac's fourth double-double of the season and first since Nov. 18. The 22-year-old's holding a steady role with the Clippers, though his fantasy value's limited by his lack of extensive minutes. Through 23 games, Zubac's averaging 8.3 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.0 block in 16.4 minutes.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Muted effort in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac finished with 10 points, two rebounds and one block in 16 minutes during Wednesday's 121-119 victory over Memphis.

Zubac played just 16 minutes Wednesday, contributing 10 points and not much else. He is locked in as the starting center but rarely sees in excess of 20 minutes. The strong play of Montrezl Harrell has certainly capped the value of Zubac, however, he is putting up top-100 numbers based on total value. He is far from a must-roster player in 12-team leagues but would be fine to stream in if you need blocks and rebounds.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Double-doubles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac recorded 12 points (4-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds and an assist in 20 minutes during Monday's win over the Thunder.

Zubac recorded his third double-double of the year in Monday's winning effort. Though he's started 12-of-14 games on the season, the 22-year-old's averaging just 15.4 minutes per contest. At this point, Zubac's averages of 8.6 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.5 blocks aren't good enough to make him worthy of a slot in standard formats. One thing of note, however, was that he attempted the first three-pointer of his Clippers career, which he, unfortunately, missed.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Swats four shots in starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac started at center and posted seven points (3-4 FG, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds, four assists and four blocks before fouling out of Saturday's 150-101 win over the Hawks.

After a one-game stint on the bench, Zubac re-entered the starting five and turned in one of his better all-around outings of the season. Zubac still played under 20 minutes, and his playing time will likely remain capped so long as Montrezl Harrell is healthy. That said, Zubac can still have value as a streamer in 12-team leagues for squads looking for a boost in field-goal percentage, rebounds and blocks.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac is coming off the bench Thursday against the Pelicans, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

Zubac has been held to eight points or fewer in three of his last four appearances, so he's been handed a new role Thursday evening. Montrezl Harrell draws the start at center in his place.
