Los Angeles Clippers Fantasy Spin
Wilson Chandler (right quad) will miss Friday's game vs. the Grizzlies and Sunday's vs. the Nuggets. The Clippers said he would be returning to practice after the All-Star break, but they won't be in a rush to activate him. It's unclear what kind of role Chandler will have once he's healthy, but it's hard to see him making an impact while Danilo Gallinari and JaMychal Green are active.
Memphis Grizzlies Fantasy Spin
Jonas Valanciunas (personal) will not be with Memphis for Friday's game vs. the Clippers. Valanciunas went to Lithuania over the All-Star break for personal reasons, but he hopes to rejoin the team for Saturday's game in Cleveland. His absence leaves more minutes for Ivan Rabb, Jaren Jackson Jr. and Joakim Noah, giving them a significant boost as DFS options.
