Nicolas Batum back in Clippers' starting lineup Saturday; Ivica Zubac returns to bench
Los Angeles Clippers guard/forward Nicolas Batum is starting Saturday in the team's game against the Utah Jazz.
Last time out, head coach Ty Lue shook up the lineup by swapping out Batum for Ivica Zubac. In Game 3 of the Western Conference Semifinals, he'll shake it up again. Batum is returning to the first unit, and Zubac will revert to a bench role.
Our models project Batum for 6.9 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 19.0 FanDuel points across 26.9 minutes of action.
