Jared Dudley SG/SF LAC 1 Month

Jared Dudley (back spasms) will not play against the Hawks on Saturday night.

He will miss his second game tonight and the Clippers won't need him. Matt Barnes is playing terrific ball right now and they were able to bring on Danny Granger to help pick up some minutes.

Jared Dudley missed Thursday's game against the Suns with back spasms.

Jamal Crawford was already out, so expect big minutes from Matt Barnes and Darren Collison tonight.

Jared Dudley (back spasms) will be a game-time decision vs. the Lakers on Thursday.

Jamal Crawford is already doubtful due to his calf injury, so the Clippers should once again lean heavily on Darren Collison and Matt Barnes, with help from Reggie Bullock and Willie Green off the bench.

Jared Dudley suffered back spasms on Tuesday night and did not return.

He went back to the locker room under his own power and the Clippers probably won't be in a big rush to bring him back after the way Matt Barnes dropped 28 points tonight. Dudley has very little fantasy value.

Jared Dudley isn't concerned about a recent report that the Clippers are "itchy" to trade him.

"[Ninety-nine] percent of the time, it doesn't happen," Dudley said. "It's the ones you don't hear about. The two times I've been traded, I didn't even hear about it. Every other time I've been in [rumors], it's never happened." That's a truism worth remembering over the next two weeks. It doesn't mean that Dudley won't in fact be dealt before Feb. 20, but the veteran is focused on raising his career-worst 44.5 percent shooting, and he hopes that Chris Paul's return on Sunday will give him a spark.

The Clippers are reportedly "itchy" to trade Jared Dudley, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

Dudley's playing time has diminished and he hasn't scored double-digit points in a game since mid-January. With J.J. Redick and Matt Barnes healthy it seems the Clippers view Dudley as expendable, but it remains to be seen what the market is for Dudley and what L.A. would ask for in return.

Jared Dudley (knee tendinitis) was replaced in the starting lineup by Matt Barnes for Wednesday's game against Charlotte.

Dudley has been struggling as of late due to an ongoing bout with tendinitis in his right knee and has only scored double-digit points once in his past five games. "He's better but I don't think 100 percent," Coach Doc Rivers said. "Hopefully the All-Star break will get him a little bit of a break. My goals are by the time the playoffs start he feels great but through the regular season that's going to be hard." Dudley may still see some starts depending on matchups, but his current level of play doesn't justify his inclusion on standard league fantasy rosters.

Jared Dudley hit 7-of-11 shots for 18 points, two rebounds, three assists, four steals, two blocks and four 3-pointers in Wednesday's win.

Dudley was cold coming into this one, scoring eight or fewer points in each of his previous three games, while hitting just 9-of-24 shots. He did it all in this one and if he happened to be in your lineup, chances are you had a good night. We'd like to see him play like this a few more times before recommending him as a strong pickup.

Jared Dudley scored seven points on 3-of-9 shooting (including a three) with four rebounds and three assists in 36 minutes on Friday.

It's hard to believe that Dudley would do better with Darren Collison distributing the ball over Chris Paul, but stranger things have happened and the Clippers could be looking for offense in new places. We're not adding him in most standard leagues right now, but we'll be watching the Clippers' next game very closely.

Jared Dudley got hot and hit 7-of-10 shots and 6-of-9 3-pointers on his way to 20 points and five assists in Wednesday's win over the Bobcats.

He had missed 11 of his last 12 3-pointers coming into this one and finally broke out of his funk tonight. Despite the big line, he'll have to stay hot to become relevant in fantasy, as he's still averaging just 7.4 points over his last five, so just keep an eye on him in case this is start of a hot streak for Dudley.
