Clippers’ Regulars Inactive Versus Thunder
Add the Los Angeles Clippers to the list of teams mailing it in for their final regular-season game of the year. Law Murray had it that Rajon Rondo, Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, Marcus Morris Sr., Nicolas Batum, and DeMarcus Cousins would all be held out against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday.
Another add to #LateScratchSZN: DeMarcus Cousins, who was questionable with left foot soreness.
Terance Mann is active for Clippers tonight in OKC. https://t.co/7a81A9Lu63

That means that Patrick Beverley, Luke Kennard, Reggie Jackson, Patrick Patterson, and Ivica Zubac will be your starting five, according to Murray. It’s not clear, although it appears that Zubac will be rested after he starts in his 72nd game. Murray also noted that Terrence Mann would be available for the Clippers on Sunday. Mann was initially listed as questionable for personal reasons but will be coming off the bench against the Thunder.
Zubac has been the most productive of the Clippers starting five tonight, but he’s probably worth avoiding in DFS lineups as his playing time may be limited. Jackson presents with upside, averaging 20.0 FanDuel Fantasy Points per game and getting the 22nd Opponent Ranked Thunder defense against point guards. Jackson’s on the low-end of the fantasy salary spectrum at $4,500 and should have plenty of opportunities against the Thunder.
The Clippers are -8 favorites on the spread and -360 on the moneyline at FanDuel Sportsbook.
