• Patrick Beverley
    PG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Patrick Beverley (left calf strain) returned from a five-game absence on Thursday but didn't get much action, playing 12 minutes and posting eight points, six boards, two assists and two threes.

    Beverley figured to be eased back into action despite drawing the start in this one, and the blowout nature of the game allowed the Clippers to take it slow with the tenacious defender. That the Clippers were able to get Beverley back on the floor without needing him to hit the ground running is a positive development. Landry Shamet moved to the bench and notched four points in 21 minutes while Reggie Jackson had no stats aside from two fouls in 13 minutes. This looks like a situation to avoid in DFS until Beverley is free of minutes limits.
