Description: The Knicks are finalizing a contract agreement with forward Earl Clark, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of yahoosports.com.
Insight: The 76ers waived Clark this week after acquiring him from the Cavaliers in the Spencer Hawes deal. He averaged just 15.5 minutes, 5.2 points and 2.8 rebounds in 45 games with Cleveland this season and will play reserve forward minutes for New York, not enough to give him fantasy value.
 
10/30/2013 10:00:00 PM
Description: Earl Clark started Wednesday's season opener at small forward and had nine points and eight rebounds in 27 minutes.
Insight: Alonzo Gee played 19 minutes and had seven points with four boards, one steal and one three. Fantasy owners can expect this type of share as long as Clark holds onto the starting job.
 
10/22/2013 7:50:00 PM
Description: According to the News-Herald, Cavaliers coach Mike Brown said that he's considering both Alonzo Gee and Earl Clark for the starting small forward job.
Insight: It didn't look like Gee would have much of a role this season after the team signed Clark and drafted Anthony Bennett, but he has played well this preseason. In 82 games last season, Gee averaged 31 minutes, 10.3 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.3 steals, and he's unlikely to see as many minutes even if he begins the season as the starter.
 
7/4/2013 4:33:00 PM
Description: Earl Clark has agreed to a two-year, $9 million contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Insight: Injuries to Pau Gasol, Jordan Hill and Dwight Howard led to increased minutes for Clark last season. He averaged 9.0 points and 6.8 rebounds in 29 minutes per game across 36 starts last year. The Cavs have 2013 No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett, Alonzo Gee and Tristan Thompson at forward and Anderson Varejao and Tyler Zeller at center, so Clark is going to have limited playing time unless someone gets hurt. He shouldn't be drafted in most fantasy leagues.
 
3/15/2013 5:08:00 PM
Description: Lakers forward Earl Clark suffered a sprained right ankle Wednesday against the Hawks but he participated in shootaround and will play Friday night against Indiana, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN.
Insight: Clark's minutes and production have taken a big hit with the return of Dwight Howard as a force in the middle. He'll lose even more value once Pau Gasol returns next week.
 
3/15/2013 11:48:00 AM
Description: Lakers forward Earl Clark suffered a sprained right ankle Wednesday against the Hawks and is questionable for Friday's game against Indiana.
Insight: Clark's minutes and production have taken a big hit with the return of Dwight Howard as a force in the middle. Clark could see additional time at small forward as the team likely adjusts to life without Kobe Bryant (severe ankle sprain) for a few games.
 
3/13/2013 9:52:00 PM
Description: Lakers forward Earl Clark suffered a sprained right ankle Wednesday against the Hawks.
Insight: Clark only played 13 minutes and didn't return. He finished with four points and three rebounds. He came into Wednesday's game with averages of 7.3 ppg and 5.2 rpg in 22 minutes, and this injury combined with news that Pau Gasol (foot) plans to return to action next week is not good for Clark's fantasy value.
 
2/23/2013 5:46:00 PM
Description: Lakers forward Earl Clark (finger) will play Sunday against the Mavericks.
Insight: Clark dislocated his pinky finger Friday night but it doesn't appear to be a major concern. After earning Mike D'Antoni's trust back in early January, the forward has remained relevant in fantasy leagues due to Pau Gasol's injury. Over his last 22 games, Clark is averaging 11.9 points, 9.0 rebounds and 0.9 blocks in 33 minutes per game.
 
2/21/2013 9:34:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles forward Earl Clark burned the Celtics for 14 points and 16 rebounds Wednesday night at Staples Center.
Insight: The 16 boards represent a new season-high for Clark. The 38 minutes of playing time Clark received Wednesday was his highest total since February 10th's loss against Miami.
 
2/12/2013 6:19:00 PM
Description: Lakers power forward Earl Clark's X-ray, CT Scan and MRI on his sore right foot all came back negative. He'll play Tuesday, according to Mike Trudell of Lakers.com.
Insight: Earlier this season a Clark injury wouldn't have even been a blip on the fantasy radar but Clark is averaging 12.3 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 33 minutes over the last 18 games.
 
2/12/2013 3:01:00 PM
Description: Lakers power forward Earl Clark will have an MRI on his sore right foot Tuesday afternoon.
Insight: Earlier this season a Clark injury wouldn't have even been a blip on the fantasy radar but Clark is averaging 12.3 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 33 minutes over the last 18 games.
 
Hot2/6/2013 10:49:00 AM
Description: Lakers power forward Earl Clark had his third straight double-double with 14 points and 12 rebounds Tuesday versus Brooklyn and his numbers could get stronger with Pau Gasol sidelined.
Insight: In his last 15 games, Clark is averaging 12.1 ppg, 9.4 rpg, 1.7 apg. With both Dwight Howard and Gasol likely to be watching in street clothes, Clark is a great fantasy option.
 
2/5/2013 10:40:00 PM
Description: Lakers power forward Earl Clark had his third straight double-double with 14 points and 12 rebounds Tuesday versus Brooklyn.
Insight: Clark came into Tuesday averaging 11.9 points, 9.2 rebounds, 0.9 blocks and 1.9 assists in 32 minutes over 14 games since joining Los Angeles' rotation on Jan. 9. Clark will continue to start even after Dwight Howard returns to the lineup, as coach Mike D'Antoni refuses to use Howard and Pau Gasol together.
 
1/22/2013 3:29:00 PM
Description: Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni confirmed that Earl Clark will start at power forward indefinitely since Pau Gasol cannot play with Dwight Howard in his system. SOURCE: ESPN
Insight: "We got to go small," D'Antoni said prior to Monday's game. "That's just the way it is. It's after (Gasol) had a great game -- it's not him. I talked to him about it and he understands where we have to go and we got to do it." Clark is averaging 11.9 points, 10 rebounds and 1.4 blocks over his last seven games and should be added in most leagues. Fantasy owners should also hang onto Gasol since he can still put up quality numbers as a reserve.
 
1/21/2013 9:09:00 PM
Description: Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni says Earl Clark has supplanted Pau Gasol as the team's starting power forward.
Insight: Clark isn't much of a scorer (just 5.0 ppg for the season) but he's been a beast on the glass, collecting 10.1 rpg in his last seven appearances. The 14 rebounds he recorded Sunday against the Raptors were a career-high.
 
1/20/2013 3:43:00 PM
Description: Lakers forward Earl Clark turned in a 14-14 double-double with one steal and one block Sunday against Toronto.
Insight: Clark saw nearly 35 minutes due to the early ejection of Dwight Howard. While Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni said that Clark would remain in the rotation even after Pau Gasol returned from a concussion, we don't expect him to get enough minutes to remain a fantasy option.
 
1/10/2013 9:50:00 AM
Description: Lakers forward Earl Clark had his best game of the season Wednesday against San Antonio. He finished with 22 points and 13 rebounds in 28 minutes of action.
Insight: Fantasy owners were probably wondering who would step up for L.A. in the absence of Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol. Well, there's your answer. Clark had played just 55 minutes all season before Wednesday's outing with 14 points in that span. Keep an eye out for Clark Friday when the Lakers host Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
 
5/5/2011 10:06:00 PM
Description: Earl Clark said he wants to return to Orlando for next season. SOURCE: Orlando Sentinel
Insight: Clark certainly gained some credibility as a player that can crack a rotation compared to being a benchwarmer in Phoenix. He had a couple nice games and has some raw talent as a scorer and defender. He shouldn't be a target in standards next year.
 
11/3/2010 11:01:00 AM
Description: The Suns did not extend the 2011-12 option to Clark, so he will be a free agent after the season.
Insight: Clark has not appeared in a game with Phoenix this year and only played 7.5 minutes in 51 games last year. He has a variety of skills, but doesn't seem to have an NBA role. (RapidDraft.com)
