    Avery Bradley scored 18 points on 7-of-9 shooting with four triples against the Warriors on Wednesday.

    Bradley did nothing but score the ball tonight and if he isn't red-hot from deep, he isn't worth owning in fantasy leagues. Danny Green (eight points, two triples, two assists and a steal) isn't a sexy option, but provides more for fantasy owners and Quinn Cook (16 points, four triples, two rebounds and three assists) is going to have to prove he can produce when the Lakers play their full rotation.

    Danny Green, Avery Bradley and Rajon Rondo will rest on Monday vs. the Warriors, joining LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

    The Lakers took care of Golden State in their first preseason meeting, and they actually play them again on Wednesday and Friday. The veterans will take some time off tonight.

    Rajon Rondo drew the start in Thursday's 111-114 loss to the Nets in China, producing 18 points, five rebounds, six assists and two 3-pointers on 7-of-13 from the field.

    Rondo was quite active in his 24 minutes on the floor, and it looks like the Lakers will let this competition run throughout the preseason — or at least until Kyle Kuzma is healthy enough to regain his starting spot. Bradley scored five points with two steals in 20 minutes off the pine, and neither player makes for an appealing target in standard leagues. At least Rondo holds some value as an assists specialist. Alex Caruso got 22 minutes off the bench and delivered 11 points, eight assists, three steals, a block and three 3-pointers. It feels like he could be on the outside looking in when the season begins but in a true meritocracy he'd be playing ahead of Rondo.

    Avery Bradley did not do much with his 13 minutes on the floor on Saturday, recording just one rebound and three fouls.

    Rajon Rondo fared a bit better, recording eight points, one rebound, four assists and one steal in 19 minutes. The Lakers are still figuring out their regular-season rotation, but so far this doesn't look like a good performance coming from Bradley.

    Lakers head coach Frank Vogel is testing out multiple starting lineups in practice.

    Yesterday Vogel said how much he liked Rajon Rondo playing off-ball and today he was starting Avery Bradley, who has been standing out during training camp. It remains up in the air to what the opening night starting lineup will look like, but Bradley has already mentioned that he does not mind coming off of the bench.

    Avery Bradley stated that he is open to coming off the bench or starting this season for the Lakers.

    Bradley sounds like he is looking forward to having a productive season with the Lakers, and noted that he was able to put in a full offseason of training after a groin injury limited him last summer. He went on to say that he wants to show everyone that he is "the best perimeter defender in the NBA." If he does that he would likely earn enough playing time to be a late-round fantasy asset. He is going to face a lot of competition for playing time, and there are probably healthier and younger options you can grab at the end of your fantasy draft.

    The Lakers have made their signing of Avery Bradley official.

    There was almost no time in between Bradley clearing waivers and inking a deal with LA. He's lost quite a bit of his shine since leaving Brad Stevens and the Celtics, and he's frankly not as good as Lakers Twitter is making him out to be, but he will be a solid wing addition for a team that's done a decent job of filling out its roster. Bradley could very well start at shooting guard, and he could also be the guy to defend opposing point guards. If he gets 30-plus mpg then there's standard-league potential but it's not going to be anything worth getting excited about. We'd prefer fliers with higher upside.

    Avery Bradley will be headed to the Lakers on a two-year, $9.7 million contract once he clears waivers.

    The second year will be a player option and Bradley has a chance to rehab his value on a high-profile team. He's had a very rough go of things since leaving Boston but did close last season with top-80 value over his last 13 games, though it came in 32.1 mpg. Bradley doesn't figure to see that much time with the Lakers, even as one of the first guards off the bench. He will provide the Lakers with some extra defensive versatility, and perhaps that gives him enough playing time to carve out deep-league value.

    David Aldridge reports that the Grizzlies have waived veteran Avery Bradley.

    His 2019-20 was to be guaranteed on July 8th, so the Grizzlies made their move and are continuing to clean house for a strategic rebuild. Bradley should still find a landing spot in the league but will need an ultra-ideal spot to spring late-round flier value.

    According to Omari Sankofa, Avery Bradley's contract guarantee date has been moved from July 3rd to July 8th.

    This is an understandable move by the Grizzlies as it gives them a little bit more flexibility as they survey the FA market for any opportunities to improve their young roster. Bradley, who is 29 years old, does not exactly fit their timeline but is a solid veteran presence on the floor.

    Avery Bradley returned top-80 value over his last 13 games of the season in Memphis, averaging 32.1 mpg with 16.7 points, 2.0 treys, 3.4 boards, 4.2 assists and 1.0 steals per contest.

    The decision to bring Bradley in via trade and then give him a bunch of minutes was an odd one but it was useful in fantasy leagues for a stretch. He's not going to eat this well in most scenarios and his stat set has always been a bit of a minus, so you'd have to be in a pretty deep Dynasty league to want to track this.

    Avery Bradley (right shin contusion) will not play in Tuesday's matchup with the Pistons.

    Bradley hasn't officially been shut down but he's not coming back. Justin Holiday, Tyler Dorsey, Chandler Parsons and Julian Washburn are among the players who have been picking up extra work. Outside of Holiday and Dorsey you'll be flying on a wing and a prayer in fantasy.

    Avery Bradley will remain sidelined for Wednesday’s game against the Blazers due to a right shin contusion.

    Bradley was expected to get re-evaluated approximately a week after March 20th but we haven’t heard anything about him making any progress and he will miss his eight consecutive game on Wednesday. Delon Wright and Tyler Dorsey will continue to get heavy minutes while Justin Holiday and Chandler Parsons shall see an uptick as well.

    Avery Bradley (right shin contusion) has been ruled out on Sunday vs. the Clippers.

    Bradley has missed the Grizzlies' last six games and this will make it a seventh. With Mike Conley out as well, Delon Wright and Tyler Dorsey should be in for extra minutes which should lead to some improved production from the both of them.
