    Anthony Davis was limited on Monday, scoring nine points on 3-of-7 shooting to go with four rebounds, two assists, a steal and two blocks.

    Davis saved his line by swatting two shots, but overall it was a forgettable night. He had five fouls and the Celtics just ran up the score on the Lakers tonight so there's not too much to read into. The good news is, the Brow is back.

    Anthony Davis will return from his gluteal contusion on Monday versus the Celtics.

    Davis' sore butt cost him five games, but he returns against one of the best possible matchups in the Celtics. It comes as a slight surprise given that he only took limited part in practice on Friday and then didn't practice at all over the weekend. It's unlikely that Davis is eased back, but as the best per-minute producer in the history of fantasy basketball, he's an obvious start tonight regardless of any hypothetical restrictions. The slice of the pie for Javale McGee and Dwight Howard shrinks with this news, and expect the two centers to cancel each other's value just as they had been doing prior to Davis' butt bruise.

    Anthony Davis (glute contusion) will not play in Saturday's game against the Rockets.

    The Lakers superstar big man is not quite ready to get back on the floor, but he is seemingly close. With Davis sitting out, Kyle Kuzma will once again be looking at added opportunities while LeBron James takes on even more usage.

    Anthony Davis (glute contusion) is a game-time call when the Lakers and Rockets play on Saturday.

    The Lakers have no urgency in forcing AD's return to the floor, but if he is ready for the primetime affair on ABC it will mean a decline in value for Dwight Howard, JaVale McGee and Kyle Kuzma. If Davis wants some MVP voting spotlight this could make for nice timing.

    Anthony Davis (glute contusion) did not participate in Friday's practice but is questionable for Saturday.

    Davis was spotted getting some light work in after practice ended and fantasy players will just have to check back tomorrow for the next update. At 33-8 there's no need for the Lakers to push AD to return before he's truly 100 percent. Dwight Howard, JaVale McGee and Kyle Kuzma are the winners while he's sidelined.

    Anthony Davis has been ruled out of Wednesday's game with a gluteus maximus contusion.

    Frank Vogel wants Davis to practice on Friday before appearing in a game. It's mildly disappointing news for his owners, but it makes sense for the Lakers to protect their big man. Feel free to fire up Dwight Howard in DFS leagues. JaVale McGee should also see a boost.

    Anthony Davis (gluteus maximus contusion) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

    Davis managed to practice on Tuesday after missing Monday's contest. The Lakers are being careful with the superstar thanks in part to a 33-7 record. Dwight Howard had a terrific night when Davis was out against the Cavs.

    Anthony Davis (gluteus maximus contusion) was seen participating in practice on Tuesday, and he hopes to get some more on-court work on Wednesday.

    Davis mentioned in a post-practice media session that he is progressing well, and his return to the court will be based on how he feels during sessions. Davis is getting close to a return but he will need to sprint and take contact before that can happen. The Lakers' next two games are on Wednesday at home against the Magic and on Saturday versus the Rockets in Houston.

    Anthony Davis (gluteus maximus contusion) will miss Monday's game against the Cavs.

    This will be Davis' third missed game due to the injury. He was testing things out prior to the game to see if he could go, so he's probably not far away from a return.

    Anthony Davis (glute) and Rajon Rondo (right finger strain) are questionable for Monday's game against the Cavs.

    Davis has missed the last two games after taking a hard fall against the Knicks, and the fact that he was able to travel with the team on their short road trip is a good sign. If AD returns to action it'll be hard to trust Kyle Kuzma as a fantasy option. Rondo is coming off a big game on Saturday, so hopefully he doesn't miss time.

  • Kyle Kuzma
    PF, Los Angeles Lakers

    Kyle Kuzma scored 36 points in Saturday's win over the Thunder, chipping in seven rebounds and four 3's.

    Kuzma had the green-light with both LeBron James and Anthony Davis out with injury. The 24 field goal attempts were a season-high for him as the Lakers kept on feeding him the ball. Fantasy owners have to be happy with his performance, as he also chipped in seven boards, but would have liked him to register in any of the other categories.

  • Dwight Howard
    C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard posted his third double-double of the season as he scored 12 points in Saturday's win over the Thunder, finishing with 14 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and converting all of his free throws.

    Even with teammate Anthony Davis out with injury, Howard found himself in the same role off the bench with JaVale McGee getting the start. Nonetheless, Howard had the better game tonight as he not only double-doubled but also swatted two shots and was 4-of-4 from the charity stripe. Even when Davis returns, it might be worthwhile to pick Howard up in shallow leagues and in some deeper leagues.

    Anthony Davis has been ruled out for Saturday's game as he heals from a gluteus maximus bruise.

    AD's butt is still hurting and so are his owners in fantasy. Given his impact, there's little anyone can do but wait and hope for the best that he returns sooner than later.

    The Lakers are listing Anthony Davis as questionable for Saturday's game against the Thunder due to a gluteus maximus bruise.

    Davis' injured butt had him listed as questionable for the previous game before missing that one. LeBron James and Danny Green have already been ruled out of this one, which bodes well for Davis' chances of suiting up tonight against a strong-ish opponent. If he doesn't play, expect Kyle Kuzma to enter the starting lineup while we'll also see more center minutes open up for Dwight Howard and Javale McGee. Check back in closer to game time.
