Brook Lopez scored 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting (including a three) with six rebounds and two blocks over 20 minutes in Friday’s win over the Bulls.
Lopez has been one of the bigger busts in fantasy hoops this year and has returned just top-150 value in 21.0 mpg. Still, he has fended off an ankle injury and doesn’t look to have experienced a major dropoff in talent, but rather he just isn’t in the Lakers’ plans this year. If that changes for whatever reason he has easy mid-round upside and for that reason alone he has stash potential. A trade wouldn’t hurt him either.
