    Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart are now officially Pelicans after the announcement of the completion of the Anthony Davis trade on Saturday.

    Ball is expected to slide into the starting point guard role, while Ingram and Hart will need to find spots in the Pelicans' rotation. All three players were stuck in a late-round value rut in L.A., so hopefully a change in scenery do them wonders.

    Josh Hart will be traded to the Pelicans, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Hart gives the Pelicans a third young asset to go along with three first-round picks, joining Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram in the deal. He battled knee injuries throughout last season but proved to be one of the more versatile and effective players on a laughable Lakers roster. A jack of all trades and master of none, expect Hart to fill multiple roles off the bench for a Pelicans team that hasn't gotten consistent wing production in the recent past. It's a tough spot for fantasy value, however, as he's now blocked in the backcourt by Ball and Jrue Holiday.

    Josh Hart sat out Tuesday’s season finale as he’s recovering from surgery on his right knee.

    Hart dealt with tendinitis in both knees, and received a PRP injection before eventually undergoing surgery on his right knee. The injection occurred around the All-Star break so Hart didn’t rack up absences until after he went under the knife, but he played at less than 100 percent for most of the second half. He started the season off strong and flirted with standard-league value at times, though he finished with top-200/185 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis. In terms of total value Hart was a top-180 player in his 67 games and proved to be a solid deep-league contributor with 1.0 steals, 0.6 blocks and 1.4 triples per game. His versatility means he should be a valuable part of the Lakers moving forward and he’ll get plenty of minutes whether he starts or not.

    Josh Hart (patellar tendon) underwent surgery and will return to full activities in 12 weeks.

    With Hart officially done for the season, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Alex Caruso, Reggie Bullock (if he can return) and Lance Stephenson should have secure roles moving forward. If you're looking for a player to pick up, we recommend the above guys in that order.

    Josh Hart (right knee tendinitis) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game with the Jazz.

    This will be the fourth straight game on the shelf for Hart, who has said that he might need surgery after the season to repair his knee. As such he's safe to drop in all formats, with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Reggie Bullock, Alex Caruso and Lance Stephenson picking up the slack. That's also the pickup order if you're trying to squeeze value out of this spot.

    Josh Hart (right knee tendinitis) is listed as out again for Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards.

    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Alex Caruso should continue to benefit from some extra minutes with Hart and possibly Reggie Bullock (questionable) out.

    Josh Hart (right knee tendinitis) has been ruled out for Sunday's bout against the Kings.

    Hart has no reason to keep pushing through this season since the Lakers are officially out of the running for the last playoff spot in the West. He struggled with tendinitis throughout the whole season and we wouldn't be shocked if the Lakers shut him down at some point.

    Josh Hart will sit out against the Nets on Friday with a right knee issue.

    Now that the Lakers have virtually nothing to play for, there's no reason for Hart to push it and get on the court at risk of aggravation. Still, LeBron James plans to return for this one, so the upticks for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope or Reggie Bullock may be short-lived.

    Josh Hart (right knee tendinitis) is questionable for Friday's game against the Nets.

    Hart's been able to go through games despite being less than 100 percent, and it's possible that he does get shut down eventually. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Reggie Bullock will pick up additional minutes if that happens.

    Josh Hart (right knee tendinitis) will play on Tuesday against the Bucks.

    Hart has been playing through the injury for the last week or so, though he has missed one contest in that time. He's not a fantasy option at this point, and his presence will take time away from Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Reggie Bullock and Alex Caruso.

    Josh Hart (right knee tendinitis) is questionable to face the Bucks on Tuesday.

    Hart has been on the injury report for over a week now, with no real trend to the decision of whether he plays or not. You can upgrade Alex Caruso, Reggie Bullock and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope while Hart is less than 100 percent, and the second-year guard is not a fantasy option at this point.

    Josh Hart (right knee tendinitis) played through a questionable tag and scored two points with three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 19 minuets on Sunday.

    Hart is clearly limited by his injury and the Lakers are starting to divert some of his minutes to Alex Caruso. Hart's a drop if you've still been holding on, even in deeper leagues.

    Josh Hart (right knee tendinitis) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Knicks.

    Hart was unable to play on Friday but did play 28 minutes on Thursday, so perhaps the absence was part of the plan on a back-to-back. Unfortunately, Hart has struggled to hold meaningful fantasy value for the back half of the year and is the inferior option to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope at this point.
