Fantasy News

  • Josh Hart - G - Los Angeles Lakers

    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 - G - Los Angeles Lakers

    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 - G - Los Angeles Lakers

    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 - G - Los Angeles Lakers

    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.

  • Josh Hart - G - Los Angeles Lakers

    Josh Hart (right knee tendonitis) and Lance Stephenson (left toe sprain) are both out on Friday vs. the Pistons.

    With half of the Lakers out due to injury or rest, there’s a bunch of usage up for grabs, but aside from Kyle Kuzma and possibly Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, it’s anyone’s guess who will show up in what’s likely to be a blowout.

    Josh Hart (right knee tendinits) is expected to play in Thursday's game against the Raptors.

    The knee tendinitis has been an ongoing issue for Hart, who hasn't looked right for a few weeks now. The opportunity is still there as Hart has been seeing 27 mpg over the past two weeks, but he hasn't done much of note with the bump in playing time.

    Josh Hart (right knee tendinitis) is questionable for Thursday's matchup with the Raptors.

    Hart has been dealing with knee tendinitis as far back as the All-Star break and recently let it slip that he may need offseason surgery. He's not on the radar at the moment, and his absence would lead to more minutes for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Reggie Bullock and Alex Caruso.

  • Brandon Ingram - F - Los Angeles Lakers

    Brandon Ingram (shoulder soreness) and Lance Stephenson (toe) are both questionable to play on Saturday vs. the Celtics.

    With Kyle Kuzma (ankle) also questionable, Josh Hart is looking at another start though the Celtics are a poor matchup for anyone considering using a Laker as a DFS punt play.

    Josh Hart started and only managed seven points and five rebounds on 2-of-6 shooting in a loss to the Nuggets on Wednesday.

    He played a team-high 39 minutes and was disappointing after looking like a potential DFS stream gem prior to this one. Hart is averaging less then five points over the past month and has dropped outside of the top-250 value. He can be left on the wire and sent to the wire if you own him.

    Josh Hart played 30 minutes on Monday, scoring 17 points on 6-of-10 shooting to go with four rebounds, a block and two triples.

    Hart always gives a strong effort and even though he still looks a bit hobbled out there, he's going to put maximum effort when he sees the floor. The Lakers are potentially looking at injuries to Kyle Kuzma (ankle), Brandon Ingram (shoulder) and Lonzo Ball (ankle) for their next contest so Hart might get a big short-term boost in value.

  • Josh Hart - G - Los Angeles Lakers

    Josh Hart returned to action on Thursday and scored four points on 2-of-3 shooting with two rebounds and an assist.

    He missed the previous two games before returning tonight. Hart came off the bench and logged 19 minutes and as it stands there isn't enough playing time for him to play to establish himself a standard league asset. Even with Lonzo Ball (ankle) out, Hart is taking a backseat to Reggie Bullock (14 points, five rebounds, an assist, a steal and four 3-pointers) and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (six points, three rebounds, a steal and two triples) because Coach Walton likes their ability to spread the floor.

    Josh Hart (left knee tendinitis) will play against the Rockets on Thursday.

    Hart was probable to play after resting up over the All-Star break following a PRP injection. He'll lengthen the bench but isn't a fantasy option with Rajon Rondo, Reggie Bullock and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope all around to play similar roles.

    Josh Hart (left knee tendinitis) is probable for Thursday's game with the Rockets.

    Hart received a PRP injection before the All-Star break and was expected to be re-evaluated, but we're guessing it went well. He's only a deep-league option now that the Lakers have Reggie Bullock soaking up minutes at shooting guard.

    Josh Hart (left knee tendinitis) received a PRP injection on Monday and will be re-evaluated after the All-Star break.

    This is probably the best option for Hart who's been horrible since the beginning of the new year. There's no need to rush him back as the Lakers have both Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Reggie Bullock ready to play. Over the past three months Hart is outside of the top-200 and shooting 38.8 percent from the field. He's not worth owning in leagues right now.
