    Update: Jordan tallied 15 points (6-7 FG, 3-8 FT), 20 rebounds, two steals and an assist over 34 minutes in Friday's 106-103 series-ending Game 6 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    Analysis: The veteran big man certainly did his part in trying to make up for the absences of fellow superstars Chris Paul (hand) and Blake Griffin (thigh), but the Clippers ultimately came up short. Jordan set a series high in boards, and mustered four double-doubles in the six games overall. He also managed a series-best 86 percent success rate from the field, but went back to struggling from the free-throw line after finding some moderate success in Game 5. Jordan posted averages of 11.7 points, 16.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 2.7 blocks and 1.2 steals over the six-game set versus Portland.

    Update: Jordan managed 16 points (5-8 FG, 6-11 FT), 17 rebounds, three assists, and three blocks across 31 minutes during the Clippers' 108-98 loss to the Trail Blazers in Wednesday's Game 5.

    Analysis: Jordan did all he could to help lead the Clippers to a win minus Chris Paul (hand) and Blake Griffin (quad), but it was not to be. Jordan has averaged 11.0 points (on 58 percent shooting), 15.6 rebounds, 3.2 blocks, two assists, and one steal in 33 minutes. While 58 percent might seem superb, it's actually 12 percentage points lower than Jordan's regular season mark. However, he has improved his rebounding, assists, steals, and blocks numbers in the postseason. With the Clippers devastated by injuries, it will take a total breakout performance from Jordan for Los Angeles to win in Portland on Friday and force a Game 7.

    Update: Jordan supplied 11 points (4-7 FG, 3-10 FT), 16 rebounds, two blocks and a steal over 32 minutes in Saturday's 96-88 Game 3 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    Analysis: The All-Star forward turned in his second double-double of the series, and third game with double-digit boards. He struggled in typical fashion from the free-throw line, as the Blazers seemed somewhat intent on getting him to the charity stripe, but not quite to the extent as they had been in the series opener. Jordan has certainly been doing his share on the glass, but with Blake Griffin struggling next to him over the last two games, he may need to step up his own offensive production in an effort to help Chris Paul carry some of the scoring load.

    Update: Jordan managed only three points (1-4 FG, 1-6 FT), but hauled in 18 rebounds, handed out five assists and recorded three blocks and a steal over 34 minutes in Wednesday's 102-81 Game 2 victory over the Trail Blazers.

    Analysis: A game after going to visiting the charity stripe a whopping 18 times, Jordan was much quieter on that front, and woefully ineffective in the six free-throw opportunties he did garner. However, he was his usual active self around the basket, with his rebound total serving as his highest tally in that category since he'd snared 20 on Mar. 23 versus the Warriors. With Blake Griffin back in the fold, Jordan's scoring responsibility and opportunity figure to remain modest on most nights, but he should still be able to provide superior numbers on the glass.

    Update: Jordan managed 18 points (5-7 FG, 8-18 FT), 12 rebounds, four blocks, one assist, and one steal across 32 minutes during the Clippers' 115-95 win against the Trail Blazers on Sunday.

    Analysis: Jordan was subjected to the usual hacking, and he missed a whopping 10 free-throw attempts. However, he dominated the Trail Blazers' on both ends, and Portland doesn't appear at all ready to handle his immense size and strength. Jordan attempted 15 free throws per contest in four regular season appearances against the Trail Blazers, highest among all opponents. However, he also averaged 14 points (65.4 FG, 36.7 FT), 16.5 rebounds, 2.3 blocks, 1.3 assists, and one steal in 34 minutes, which are some of his best overall marks against playoff-caliber teams.

    Update: Jordan will be held out of Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Suns for rest purposes, Ben Bolch of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Analysis: Jordan fell a little shy of claiming his 50th double-double of the season in Tuesday's 110-84 win over the Grizzlies, delivering seven points (3-4 FG, 1-2 FT), 12 rebounds, two blocks, one assist, and one steal over 28 minutes. The blowout nature of the game prompted coach Doc Rivers to rest most of his starters for the second half, and he'll give four-fifths of his top unit an even more extended break in the second half of the back-to-back set Wednesday, as Jordan, Chris Paul, J.J. Redick, and Blake Griffin will all get the night off. In addition, sixth man Jamal Crawford will stay back in Los Angeles to rest, leaving the Clippers with just 10 active players for the contest. Look for Cole Aldrich to make the start at center and receive heavy minutes, but Jordan will reclaim his regular role once the playoffs begin over the weekend.

    Update: Jordan had 14 points (4-5 FG, 6-23 FT), 10 rebounds, and one block in 32 minutes during the Clippers' 98-91 win against the Mavericks on Sunday.

    Analysis: Jordan returned to the lineup following a one-game absence to rest on Friday versus the Jazz. Mavericks' coach Rick Carlisle opted to send Jordan to the free-throw line almost all day, and he struggled badly. Still, Jordan managed to deliver his 49th double-double. Jordan might receive at least one more night off given that the Clippers are locked into fourth place and have a back-to-back set on Tuesday and Wednesday to end the regular season, so be sure he is playing before inserting him into fantasy lineups.

    Update: Jordan (rest) will be back in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Mavericks, Dan Woike of the OC Register reports.

    Analysis: Jordan received the night off Friday against the Jazz for rest, as coach Doc Rivers wanted to give him some extra time off with the playoffs just under a week away. He'll move back into the starting lineup Sunday, which moves Cole Aldrich back into a bench role. Over his last five outings, Jordan is averaging 12 points, 11.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 2.6 blocks over 30 minutes per game.

    Update: Jordan has been formally ruled out for Friday's game against the Jazz for rest purposes, Dan Woike of the Orange County Register reports.

    Analysis: As expected, the Clippers will use Friday's game as an opportunity to get a number of regulars some extra rest. Joining Jordan in street clothes will be Chris Paul, J.J. Redick, Blake Griffin, and Wesley Johnson (feet). In Jordan's absence, Cole Aldrich figures to start at center and take on a much larger role, as was the case when Jordan rested against the Thunder a week ago. Jeff Ayres should also pick up some extra minutes off the bench.

    Update: Jordan may sit out Friday's matchup with the Jazz for rest, Rowan Kavner of Clippers.com reports.

    Analysis: The Clippers haven't finalized anything, but it appears as though Doc Rivers may rest some of his regulars with the playoffs fast approaching. Jordan, Chris Paul, and J.J. Redick could all join Blake Griffin, who's already been ruled out, on the bench Friday in street clothes.

    Update: Jordan registered 15 points (7-9 FG, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, and four blocks across 27 minutes in Wednesday's 91-81 triumph over the Lakers.

    Analysis: Over the two back-to-back matchups with the Lakers, Jordan compiled 22 points (on 10-for-15 shooting), 25 rebounds, four blocks, and three assists. Had the games been more competitive, Jordan likely would have seen his production rise, but he was limited to less than 30 minutes in both contests. The Clippers' next game will come Friday against a more talented Jazz squad, but because Los Angeles is locked into the fourth seed in the Western Conference, coach Doc Rivers could again decide to cap Jordan's minutes in advance of the postseason.

    Update: Jordan tallied seven points (3-6 FG, 1-4 FT), 14 rebounds, and three assists over 29 minutes in Tuesday's 103-81 romp over the Lakers.

    Analysis: Jordan came away from the Clippers' previous game Sunday against the Wizards with a tweaked ankle, but it didn't prevent him from suiting up Tuesday. Though he saw fewer minutes than normal will the Clippers turning the game into a rout by the third quarter, Jordan was effective during his time on the court and kept Lakers starting center Roy Hibbert off the scoreboard. The Clippers will face the lowly Lakers again Wednesday on the second half of a back-to-back set, and Jordan could again see his minutes limited.

    Update: Jordan tweaked his ankle during Sunday's win over the Wizards, but won't miss any time, the Janis Carr of the Orange County Register reports.

    Analysis: Jordan admitted Monday that he slightly rolled his ankle Sunday, but coach Doc Rivers told him that he 'had to keep playing.' The center may still be dealing with some soreness, but he'll get the start Tuesday against the Lakers and isn't expected to face any sort of limitations. It's likely a non-story, but the ankle may be something to keep an eye on, especially with the Clippers finishing off a back-to-back set Wednesday with the Lakers.

    Update: Jordan had 12 points (5-7 FG, 2-11 FT), 12 rebounds, three blocks, two steals, and one assist in 35 minutes during the Clippers' 114-109 win over the Wizards on Sunday.

    Analysis: Jordan sat out Thursday's game against the Thunder to rest, but he returned to action Sunday to join Blake Griffin (suspension) on the court for the first time since Dec. 25. He injured his ankle in the middle of the contest, but wasn't sidelined for long and saw his usual court time. The center might see his offensive stats dip a little bit going forward since Chris Paul now has two options when it comes to throwing alley-oops, but it shouldn't result in too much of a downturn in Jordan's production. Both Griffin and Jordan have always co-existed well, and Griffin is one of the NBA's better passing forwards.

    Update: Jordan will rest Thursday against the Thunder, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Analysis: Jordan will be sitting along with Chris Paul and J.J. Redick. With the Clippers six games clear of the flagging Grizzlies for the fourth seed in the West, they have little to lose by resting their stars down the stretch.

    Update: Jordan scored 15 points (5-8 FG, 5-7 FT) to go with 13 rebounds and three blocked shots in 29 minutes during Monday's win against the Celtics.

    Analysis: Jordan was his usual destructive force, wreaking havoc around the rim and finishing with his fourth consecutive double-double. He's been on a tear of late, averaging 16.0 points, 13.5 boards, and 2.5 blocks in his last 13 games. It will be interesting to see how Blake Griffin's (hand) return will affect his role in the offense.

    Update: Jordan posted a double-double in Sunday's win over the Nuggets, scoring 16 points (7-10 FG, 2-4 FT) and grabbing 16 rebounds to go along with six blocks, two assists and two steals in 29 minutes.

    Analysis: The big-man hardly played late in the game after the Clippers built a big lead, but he was able to stuff the stat sheet before being pulled, including coming within one blocked shot of his season-high. Jordan has now strung together three strong efforts and is averaging 16.3 rebounds, 15.6 points, 2.6 assists and 2.6 blocks over that span. The news came down Sunday that Blake Griffin would begin serving his four-game suspension ahead of his return to the court, so Jordan's production could take an upcoming hit despite his recent success.

    Update: Jordan compiled 12 points (3-7 FG, 6-16 FT), 13 rebounds, three assists and three steals over 32 minutes in Thursday's 96-94 victory over the Trail Blazers.

    Analysis: Despite only taking seven shots from the field, Jordan managed his second straight double-double and visited the charity stripe a whopping 16 times. He did run into foul trouble for the second straight game, and committed a season-high five turnovers. Jordan has 13 consecutive double-digit scoring efforts, and 16.4 points, 13.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.0 steals over his last five contests.

    Update: Jordan tore up the Warriors in Wednesday's 114-98 loss, producing 19 (7-10 FG, 5-10 FT), 20 boards, three assists, and two blocks across 38 minutes.

    Analysis: The Warriors welcomed shutdown center Andrew Bogut (toe) back from a two-game absence, but he did little to disrupt Jordan's rhythm, as the big man nearly came away with his second 20-20 game of the campaign. It's hard to believe, but Jordan's 70 percent mark from the field Wednesday was actually a slight step back from what he's done of late, as he entered the contest shooting an unreal 90.3 percent (28-for-31) over his preceding five games. His poor free-throw shooting notwithstanding, Jordan's hyper-efficiency from the field and his monstrous rebound and block totals make him a top-flight fantasy commodity at the center spot.
