Clippers' Montrezl Harrell: Solid in Sunday spot start
Harrell delivered 18 points (7-13 FG, 4-4 FT), four rebounds and one steal across 28 minutes in the Clippers' 103-95 win over the Spurs on Sunday.
Harrell drew the start at center and acquitted himself well, although he actually saw a slight dip in rebounding production. His work on the offensive end was right in line with what he often offers off the bench, however, and he bounced back nicely from a 33.3 percent showing from the field versus the Warriors on Friday. It remains to be seen if coach Doc Rivers will opt to keep Harrell in the starting role for the Clippers' next contest, which comes Tuesday night versus the Mavericks.... See More ... See Less
Clippers' Patrick Beverley: Excels in spot start
Beverley totaled 18 points (5-9 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 12 rebounds, five assists, four steals and one block across 42 minutes in the Clippers' 103-95 win over the Spurs on Sunday.
Beverley entered the starting five with Danilo Gallinari (back) on the shelf, and he ended up putting together his best all-around performance of the campaign during the spot start. The veteran guard's rebounds and minutes were both season highs, while his four made threes equaled his second-best showing in that category. Encouraging as Sunday's line was, it's important to keep in mind that Beverley has been serving in a bench role of late, and that Sunday's nine shot attempts belie the much more modest usage he typically exhibits on the offensive end....

Clippers' Danilo Gallinari: Not on road trip
Gallinari (back) will not travel with the Clippers on their upcoming three-game road trip, Jovan Buha of ESPN reports.
Gallinari was held out of Sunday's game, and while there's a chance he could meet up with the team later in the week, coach Doc Rivers insinuated that he expects the veteran to miss the rest of the trip. If that's the case, Gallinari could return to action Sunday (Jan. 27) when the Clippers return home to host Minnesota.... See More ... See Less
Clippers' Tobias Harris: Near triple-double in win
Harris provided 27 points (12-20 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-3 FT), nine rebounds, nine assists, three steals and one block across 43 minutes in the Clippers' 103-95 win over the Spurs on Sunday.
Harris' stellar final line underscores how critical to the impressive road victory he was. The floor-spacing big man paced the Clippers in scoring, posting his third tally of over 20 points in the last four games in the process. Harris' scoring and rebounding are the most reliable parts of his game, but as he demonstrated yet again Sunday, he's highly capable of key contributions in other areas as well.... See More ...

Clippers' Luc Mbah a Moute: Remains out Sunday
The Clippers are listing Mbah a Moute (knee) as out for Sunday's game in San Antonio.
Coach Doc Rivers indicated back in December that Mbah a Moute would return from the sore left knee in a "couple weeks," but more than a month later, there has been no indication from the team that the forward is especially close to playing again. His status will continue to be updated on a game-to-game basis, but there's a good chance Mbah a Moute will miss additional time beyond Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Clippers' Lou Williams: Out Sunday
Williams (hamstring) won't play Sunday against the Spurs, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.
Williams was initially listed as questionable, but he's been ruled out hours before tipoff and will miss his second straight contest due to right hamstring soreness. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Avery Bradley should be in for another heavy workload while Tyrone Wallace could also see an uptick in minutes.... See More ... See Less
Clippers' Danilo Gallinari: Ruled out Sunday
Gallinari (back) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Spurs, Tomer Azarly of Clutch Points reports.
No surprise here, as Gallinari was doubtful coming into Sunday. The veteran started experiencing back issues during Friday's loss to Golden State, in which he was limited to just eight minutes. Consider him day-to-day ahead of Tuesday's game in Dallas.... See More ... See Less
Clippers' Danilo Gallinari: Doubtful vs. Spurs
Gallinari (back) is doubtful for Sunday's matchup against the Spurs, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.
Back spasms forced Gallinari to leave Friday's loss to the Warriors early in the first half, and it seems the forward won't be recovered in time to play over the weekend. Assuming he's sidelined and misses his second game of the year, Sindarius Thornwell, Tyrone Wallace and Mike Scott could see extra time.... See More ... See Less
Clippers' Lou Williams: Questionable Sunday
Williams (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Spurs, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.

Clippers' Lou Williams: Out Friday
Williams will not play in Friday's matchup with the Warriors due to a sore right hamstring, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

Clippers' Jerome Robinson: Assigned to G League
Robinson has been assigned to the G League.
Robinson hasn't appeared in an NBA game since mid-November, so this move doesn't affect LA's rotation. In the G League, he's averaging 20.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 31.0 minutes. He's also shooting 50.0 percent from deep on 6.3 attempts per tilt.... See More ... See Less
