Given that he is not the kind of player who can create his own offence through heavy touches, Jordan will not offset the offensive loss caused by Griffin’s injury. For all the perimeter skills that Griffin has developed over his career, Jordan has not. However, Griffin’s injury leaves Jordan as the sole star on the roster. He cannot do what Griffin does, but if the Clippers are to stay afloat, he will need to do even more of what he already does well. His minutes will likely spike, and with it, so will his already decent fantasy value. And if a few more touches should be forthcoming, even better.

Consistently healthy, consistently productive, and consistently plays within his limitations. Even slightly improved his weaker areas - showed slightly more poise in his post touch, had a career-high assist rate (albeit still low), and shot the second best he ever has from the free throw line. He is a star role player, and a role playing star. Needs to develop further offensively - 15% more on that free throw stroke, a willingness to go to the post and use his hooks, less wild kick-out passes - to compliment his pick-and-roll effectiveness. Also needs help defensively so that he is not having to track both halves of a pick-and-roll at once too often.

Player Plan: One guaranteed year at $22,642,350, then one player option year at $24,119,025. No reason to look for a trade despite expensive overall payroll.

Additionally, Jordan's salary is unguarant eed; waiving him opens up another $380,785 in cap room after being charged another cap hold. That would boost their amount of cap room to $17,974,712. It's something to consider, but it's overkill.
