Willie Reed scored eight points Monday, going 4 of 5 from the field, as the Los Angeles Clippers lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves 126-118. Reed grabbed three rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -2 in his 16:22 on the floor.
Willie Reed scored six points Saturday, going 2 of 3 from the field, as the Los Angeles Clippers fell to the Utah Jazz 125-113. Reed grabbed five rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -10 in his 12:29 on the floor.
Willie Reed made another start on Saturday at Utah with DeAndre Jordan (ankle) on the shelf, but Reed finished with just six points.
Advice: Reed hit 2-of-3 from the floor and 2-of-2 from the free-throw line, but he was limited to just 12 minutes. He did chip in with five rebounds, but it wasn't enough to make him useful even in the deepest of fantasy formats or as a contrarian play in DFS. Montrezl Harrell is the better fantasy option if you need a short-term replacement until Jordan is able to return.
Willie Reed scored four points Wednesday, going 2 of 6 from the field, as the Los Angeles Clippers topped the Denver Nuggets 109-104. Reed grabbed three rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +5 in his 16:34 on the floor. He added two blocks.
Willie Reed started on Wednesday but finished with four points, three rebounds and two blocks in 17 foul-plagued minutes.
Advice: DeAndre Jordan (ankle) was ruled out 90 minutes before tip-off tonight, so there's a chance he'll be back in the lineup vs. Utah on Saturday. Doc Rivers didn't sound too optimistic, but even without Jordan it's been Montrezl Harrell doing the most damage for L.A.
Willie Reed will start again for Wednesday against the Nuggets.
Advice: No changes here with Milos Teodosic, Lou Williams, Tyrone Wallace and Blake Griffin starting. Montrezl Harrell has outplayed Reed, so he's probably the better option here.
Willie Reed finished with just two points over 10 minutes in Monday's start against the Rockets.
Advice: Reed made another start with DeAndre Jordan (ankle) nursing an injury, but it was Montrezl Harrell and Wesley Johnson picking up more of the slack than Reed. He went for 14 points and 13 rebounds last time out to turn the heads of fantasy owners, but this performance is exactly why you need to exercise extreme caution outside of the deepest of fantasy leagues.
Willie Reed scored two points Monday, going 1 of 1 from the field, as the Los Angeles Clippers topped the Houston Rockets 113-102. Reed grabbed one rebound and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -3 in his 9:51 on the floor. He added two blocks.
Willie Reed will replace DeAndre Jordan (ankle) in the starting lineup Saturday vs. the Kings.
Advice: Reed had four points and three rebounds in 10 minutes off the bench Thursday vs. the Warriors. Thus, despite drawing the start, Reed is a would be a risky DFS or streaming option, as Montrezl Harrell tallied 25 points (on 11-of-12 shooting), six rebounds and a steal in 27 minutes on Thursday.
Willie Reed was solid in a spot-start for DeAndre Jordan (ankle) on Saturday, scoring 14 points on 6-of-6 shooting to go with 13 boards, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 26 minutes.
Advice: As we saw last season in Miami when Hassan Whiteside was forced to the sidelines for a brief period, Reed is capable of consistently bringing this sort of effort when given the minutes, so he could be someone to consider as a speculative add in deep leagues if you've got someone to cut. Just know that he'll return to being a negligible fantasy option once Jordan returns to the court, so we wouldn't advise cutting anyone with long-term appeal.
