    Dwight Howard is being listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Sixers due to a stomach illness.

    JaVale McGee should be in line for additional minutes in this one. Howard should be back soon as it doesn't seem like a long term injury.

    Anthony Davis (right knee) will play on Tuesday vs. the Sixers.

    He missed the Lakers' previous game against the Pelicans but will make his return tonight against the Sixers. Davis has been on the injury report more times than you can count this year, but he has played in a large majority of those contests. He should be good to go. Kyle Kuzma's value decreases significantly and both Dwight Howard and JaVale McGee take a noticeable production hit with Davis returning.

    JaVale McGee delivered eight points, four rebounds and six blocks against the Pelicans on Sunday.

    McGee had gone four straight games without a block so he was due for a huge showing. Anthony Davis missed this game which allowed McGree to pick up some extra opportunities. McGee is nothing more than a blocks specialist for the Lakers. Dwight Howard typically gets a larger share of the center minutes, he went for eight points, six rebounds and one block, and is a better option for big man stats in comparison.

    Dwight Howard was productive in his 15 minutes of floor time on Sunday, scoring 10 points on 3-of-5 shooting and collecting seven rebounds.

    Anthony Davis, not surprisingly, had another monster game and played 39 minutes, but Howard actually got more minutes than starting center JaVale McGee. In shallower leagues, Howard probably belongs on the waiver wire. However, he has been remarkably consistent in his bench role this year is worth using in deeper fantasy leagues.

    JaVale McGee has gotten over his illness and will play in Friday's game versus the Blazers.

    McGee got some extra time to get better after the Lakers' game on Monday was postponed. He'll return to his usual low-minute role backing up Dwight Howard. He's nothing but a blocks specialist in most formats.

    JaVale McGee (illness) is probable for Friday's game against the Blazers.

    McGee may play in this contest so we'll see what that means for Dwight Howard, who has been a nice low-end option of late. Neither of these guys have a ton of upside if they're both active and splitting minutes.

    JaVale McGee (illness) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Sixers.

    Dwight Howard should be in line for another start, but Al Horford will pose as a more difficult matchup as compared to Jarrett Allen. Howard is still worth a look in DFS and in a streaming scenario.

    JaVale McGee (illness) is questionable to take on the Sixers on Friday.

    McGee also missed Wednesday's game and has seen his minutes dip as Dwight Howard's role has increased of late for the Lakers. He is still useful for traditional big-man stats, but his upside has disappeared under these circumstances.

    Dwight Howard picked up a double-double on Thursday with 14 points, 12 rebounds and three defensive counters in a win against the Nets.

    Howard has been a very useful play for rebounds and blocked shots and is putting up perfectly realistic top-100 center stats. JaVale McGee's absence surely played into Howard's production.

    Dwight Howard turned 27 minutes off the bench into five points, 12 rebounds, a steal and three blocks on Wednesday

    Howard saw more minutes than starter, JaVale McGee who was limited to 17 minutes of action and ended with six points and five rebounds. Howard continues to provide value on the boards even with Anthony Davis back in the lineup. Although this might not last as AD gets back to his regular minutes.

    JaVale McGee scored 18 points on 7-of-9 shooting to go with five rebounds and three blocks on Monday.

    McGee did all of his work in 18 minutes, but the Celtics starters worked the Lakers which limited his playing time. Teammate Dwight Howard (nine points, 10 rebounds and a steal in 19 minutes) didn't do much better as they ran into a buzzsaw tonight.

    JaVale McGee ended Wednesday's contest one rebound shy of a double-double, finishing with 14 points (a perfect 7-of-7 shooting), nine boards and three blocks.

    McGee was one of the few bright spots for the Lakers' starting five but saw less minutes than Dwight Howard coming off the bench to the tune of nine points and 16 rebounds.

  • Anthony Davis

    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.

    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.

    Dwight Howard blocked five shots and pulled down 13 boards in the Lakers win over the Knicks on Tuesday, adding eight points (3-for-3 FGs), one steal and even a 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

    Howard garnered a few extra minutes due to the blowout and Anthony Davis exiting early with a sacral contusion. Howard and JaVale McGee are in line for a few extra minutes per game while Davis recovers. McGee played 14 minutes and had six points, seven rebounds, two steals and two blocks.
