The big news of the NBA this morning is that Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are not joining the team as they start this road trip in Atlanta due to safety protocols.
That significantly dims the star power here as does the fact that Trae Young is questionable for the Hawks.
That is the reason one of the hottest teams in the league, the Clippers are pretty solid underdogs on Tuesday night.
Los Angeles Clippers
Also out for the Clippers today is pesky point guard Patrick Beverley.
All of those absences create opportunities for players to step up. Two that have been named repeatedly are Amir Coffey and Terrence Mann.
Both are solid athletes but thus far in their careers they have not shown much in the NBA. They are not going to supplant those All-Stars but might be good enough to keep the team afloat on the road.
Reggie Jackson is another player who could step forward. He has much more of a track record than those referenced above and right now they actually need him.
Ditto for Lou Williams who has been off this season. He is playing less minutes and his production is way down. They may need him to find that gear he found often under the old regime.
Basketball is a tricky game because it is not so easy to plug and play. You are not trying to find the points of Leonard and George, you also need to find ther defense, rebounding and gravity. They are two of the top ten players in the league for their all-around contributions.
This will be a game to see of Ty Lue can actually coach. There is enough raw material for this group to stay competitive.I am not a big fan of his.
Young is questionable and so is Clint Capela tonight. The line tells me that one of them may suit up.
With neither of them in the lineup it was no surprise that the Hawks fell at Milwaukee. What was nice to see was how John Colling and DeAndre Hunter stepped up, both had 30 or more points in the loss.
Some see Hunter as the next Kawhi like talent so it is a shame we don’t get to see them square off. He has increased his scoring by 5ppg this season and is good enough on defense to merit that kind of outlook.
Atlanta has a lot more depth than people realize. No Young means that Rajon Rondo directs the team and I am more than OK with that. They will play a little more under control and that might be good in ths matchup tonight.

Free Los Angeles Clippers vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Prediction:
At full strength this is not a good matchup for Atlanta. Today I feel like the value is good.
Sometimes reserves step forward and plug holes and other times they are exposed. I think the latter is the more investment worthy scenario so I will be looking to fade the Clippers in the short term.
