After Dismal Start, Clippers Give Rookie Al-Farouq Aminu Starting Gig

With only one win so far this season, it looks like the Clippers have gone ahead with a youth movement earlier than expected. The Clippers have shifted rookie Al-Farouq Aminu into the starting five, giving them three rookie starters.

The Breakdown
Struggling and dealing with injuries to two of their key players, it looks like the Clippers may use the rest of the season to give their youngsters playing time and experience. Eric Bledsoe has played very well and is rated #71 as of today in FBB's player ratings. He has a legitimate shot of starting for the rest of the season and should be rostered in all formats. He's still available in 45% of leagues.

Aminu played well tonight in his second career start, putting up 14 points, 2 threes, and 5 rebounds. He's worth a speculative add in deeper leagues.
