Chris Paul won't be playing for the Los Angeles Clippers Saturday against Portland. CP3 hasn't played since aggravating his kneecap injury on January 21.
Eric Bledsoe will start, and he's been an excellent understudy. In five starts, he's averaging 12.4 points, 5 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 2.4 steals and 1 block in 30.4 minutes. He's also made two 3-pointers in that span. Pluck him off the wire if he's not owned in your league (25 percent owned in Yahoo).
As expected, Clippers G Chris Paul (knee) will sit out tonight's game vs #Blazers.

LOS ANGELES -- The Clippers are back in their "happy place," as Lamar Odom called it Sunday night.
They played team defense and kept a positive energy. They got everyone involved offensively. They shared the ball.
Most of all, they put an end to their four-game losing streak, and at the perfect time. Their 96-83 win over the Portland Trail Blazers at Staples Center avenged...
LOS ANGELES -- This time, the Los Angeles Clippers finished what they started. One night after surrendering the final 10 points of the game in an excruciating loss to the Trail Blazers, the Clippers reversed the result in a 96-83 victory over Portland at sold-out Staples Center. In the process, the Clippers halted a four-game losing streak despite playing without star guard Chris...
Jamal Crawford has been quickly taking names with his deadly crossover. Wesley Matthews gets so confused that he just gives up with a wave of the hand. Jamal Crawford has been doing these things for years on players. He might be the most underrated ball handler in the league with devastating moves like this. Wesley Matthews never stood a chance.
If you took a poll among fans as to who has the best crossover in the NBA, I’m sure Jamal Crawford would at the very least be right in the middle of the discussion.
But after this crossover last night, he may have just secured the title.
PORTLAND After a very light practice on Friday, Blake Griffin said he was feeling better after retweaking his left ankle in the first quarter of Thursday night's game at Phoenix.
Griffin did some shooting at the practice, and the team said the All-Star power forward is expected to be in the starting lineup Saturday night against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Griffin said he first...

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Jamal Crawford was pretty sure he was going to be the hero for his new team on his old stomping grounds. When Crawford's 20-foot jump shot bounced off the rim as time expired Saturady, guaranteeing the Portland Trail Blazers a 101-100 victory over Crawford's Los Angeles Clippers, he was as surprised as the Rose Garden throng was elated. "I thought...
There still is no set date for the return of injured Clippers point guard Chris Paul, head coach Vinny Del Negro said Sunday.
"Day to day, no timetable," Del Negro said of Paul, the team's star playmaker who is out because of a bruised right kneecap.
"With a bone bruise it's just a matter of letting it calm down," and then the Clippers have to wait ...
On Saturday, Jamal Crawford and his Clippers traveled North to face the Blazers at Portland’s Rose Garden, the arena in which he played his home games last season. In those home games, he scored just 13.5 points per game on 40.5% from the floor and 30.9% from three. As the numbers indicate, Crawford’s stint with the Blazers was a yearlong struggle. He was bad, the team...
The Los Angeles Clippers lost their 4th consecutive last night (101-100 to Portland) -- but that didn't keep Blake Griffin from making the NBA's YouTube page again.

Eric Bledsoe bounced back from a rough night with a full stat line in a 93-88 loss to the Phoenix Suns. The Clippers point guard had 15 points (5-10 FG, 4-4 FT) to go with a 3-pointer, seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and a block in 30 minutes before fouling out.
Bledsoe is a must-own player with Chris Paul sidelined with a kneecap injury and a must-stash player for...
Like most people, when news broke that the New Orleans Hornets were changing their name to the Pelicans, I was all like, “Pelicans? That’s a stupid mascot,” as I hid my Magic gear from plain sight. But thankfully I follow some diehard New Orleansonians on the Tweeters, including our good friend Chris Trew, and I now believe that with the bird’s actual legacy to the city combined...
Nicolas Batum had 20 points, 10 rebounds and a career-high 12
assists for his second triple-double in a week and the Portland
Trail Blazers handed the Los Angeles Clippers their fourth straight
loss with a 101-100 victory on Saturday night.
The NBA is loaded with young talent right now and some of them are developing faster than ever. Take Kyrie Irving, Cleveland’s sophomore phenom who right now, at age 20, is averaging 23.7 PPG and 5.6 AST. The dude has everything you look for in a starting point guard. He possesses the hairline and fourth quarter “take-over” gene that many would argue a former Cleveland Cavalier...
The other day the starters were released for the 2013 All Star game, and now the rest of the rosters were released. The 2013 All Star game will be held on Sunday, February 17th in Houston.
The reverses for the Eastern Conference will be Kyrie Irving, Paul George, Jrue holiday, Tyson Chandler, Joakim Noah, Chris Bosh and Luol Deng.
Of course the starters were voted in by the fans...
