Clippers' DeAndre Jordan (ankle) out Saturday against Jazz

Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan will not play on Saturday, reports Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times.

What It Means:

Jordan will miss his fourth straight game with a sprained left ankle. Due to the timing of the announcement, it's unlikely that Jordan returns sooner than later. Willie Reed should continue to start with Montrezl Harrell getting a lot of work off the bench.

Prior to being ruled out, Jordan was projected to play 31.9 minutes and account for 32.7 FanDuel points in Saturday's game.

Malcolm Brogdon (personal) listed as out for Bucks on Saturday

Milwaukee Bucks shooting guard Malcolm Brogdon (personal) is listed as out in the game notes for Saturday's matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers.

What It Means:

Brogdon will join Giannis Antetokounmpo (right knee soreness) on the Bucks' sidelines, so there should be plenty of extra opportunity on offense for Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe while Matthew Dellavedova, Sean Kilpatrick, and Sterling Brown all see a boost in minutes.

Brogdon is averaging 24.3 FanDuel points per game this season. Over the remainder of the year, numberFire's models project him to record 16.9 points, 3.3 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.2 steals, and 2.8 3-pointers per game.

Skal Labissiere (shoulder) listed as probable for Kings on Friday

Sacramento Kings forward/center Skal Labissiere (shoulder) is listed as probable for Friday against the Memphis Grizzlies.

What It Means:

Labissiere is set to return after missing Wednesday's matchup. With Zach Randolph returning to Memphis tonight, it'll likely be Kosta Koufos getting the night off for Sacramento.

numberFire's models project Labissiere to score 24.0 FanDuel points at a cost of $5,400 on Friday.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) ruled out for Bucks on Saturday

Milwaukee Bucks small forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (right knee soreness) is listed as out in the game notes for Saturday's matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers.

What It Means:

This is the first word of any issue with Antetokounmpo's knee, so hopefully the Bucks simply want to give him the day off. Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe should both see larger roles offensively versus the 76ers.

Giannis is averaging 52.8 FanDuel points per game this season. Over the remainder of the year, numberFire's models project him to record 22.6 points, 9.8 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.5 steals, 1.4 blocks, and 2.4 turnovers per game.

Warriors' Jordan Bell (ankle) will be re-evaluated in two weeks

Golden State Warriors power forward/center Jordan Bell has inflammation in his injured left ankle and will be re-evaluated in two weeks, reports Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

What It Means:

Bell is dealing with a bone bruise in the ankle he injured on Wednesday night. He was forced to leave the floor in a wheelchair, but he fortunately avoided a more serious, long-term injury. In his stead, Kevon Looney and David West will serve as the Warriors' primary backups down low.

In his rookie season, Bell is averaging 5.1 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 14.4 minutes per game.
