Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Held in check Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac ended with just eight points (1-1 FG, 6-7 FT) and three rebounds in 21 minutes during Monday's 113-107 Game 3 victory over the Nuggets.

Zubac offered very little outside of being a big body on the inside for the Clippers, failing to record a defensive stat for the third time in his last four games. His offensive production has ebbed and flowed during his time in the bubble, as has his playing time. His minutes have been kept to under 25 in all three games against the Nuggets and as we have seen throughout his career, his fantasy ceiling remains capped.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Double-doubles in Game 6 victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac amassed 15 points (6-8 FG, 3-3 FT) and 11 rebounds in 33 minutes during Sunday's 111-97 victory over the Mavericks.

Zubac continues to play well for the Clippers, helping them to a series-clinching victory. His playing time has been surprising, although it could take a hit depending on who they face in the second round of the playoffs. His productivity is often limited, which does make him a risky DFS play despite the consistent role.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Plays season-high 30 minutes Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac compiled 15 points (6-8 FG, 3-4 FT), six rebounds and one block in 30 minutes during Friday's 130-122 Game 3 victory over Dallas.

With Montrezl Harrell continuing to work his way back from an extended break, Zubac put up another strong performance. The playing time was a season high, and it certainly demonstrates the confidence he has right now. Considering that Zubac is the much stronger defensive presence of the two, he's likely to remain the starting option even once Harrell fully has his legs under him.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Dominates glass once again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac scored eight points (4-8 FG) to go with 15 rebounds, two assists and a block in 25 minutes during Sunday's 129-120 win over the Clippers.

Zubac set a new career high with his fourth straight game of double-digit rebounds. Since the restart, he has been an unyielding presence in the paint, pulling down 69 rebounds in six contests with a couple of high-scoring games to boot. The seven-footer will look to stay on a roll Wednesday against the Nuggets.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Just shy of double-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac recorded nine points (2-5 FG, 5-6 FT), 12 rebounds and four assists in 24 minutes during Saturday's 122-117 win over the Trail Blazers.

Zubac has been on a tear over the past three games, totaling 48 points, 39 rebounds, five assists and two blocks. He's also shot 19-of-24 from the field and 10-of-13 from the charity stripe. The Clippers undoubtedly miss Montrezl Harrell, but if Zubac can continue to perform like this, it puts less pressure on JaMychal Green and Joakim Noah.

Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Big double-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zubac scored 21 points (10-10 FG, 1-2 FT) while adding 15 rebounds, an assist and a block in 24 minutes during Thursday's 126-111 win over the Mavericks.

The fourth-year center was essentially the difference in the game -- while Luca Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis combined for 59 points to Kawhi Leonard and Paul George's 53, the Mavs didn't have a third contributor to match Zubac. He now has back-to-back double-doubles, and Zubac could be a wild card for the Clippers as they try to lock up the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference.

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.

December 23, 2019 02:32 PM
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.
