    Kyle Kuzma had trouble finding the basket on Wednesday, but still finished with 13 points, four steals and three blocks on 4-of-11 from the field.

    Kuzma might not have had the best night shooting the ball, but owners will happily take the defensive stats. He will need to keep this up to start becoming relevant in standard formats. Right now he is way off the radar.

    Kyle Kuzma (ankle, illness) will play in Wednesday's matchup against Utah.

    Kuzma had already played through the ankle spain yesterday, and he is currently dealing with a cold. It's fine to play him as you normally would in this one.

    Lakers head coach Frank Vogel said that he expects both Anthony Davis and Kyle Kuzma to play against the Jazz, stating both are experiencing cold-like symptoms.

    Davis had been listed as probable heading into this one with shoulder soreness, but the absence of any talk of that in Vogel's comments seem to suggest he will be fine on that front. This is the first we're hearing of any illnesses for either player so stay tuned for both Davis' and Kuzma's availability as we get closer to tip off.

    Kyle Kuzma (ankle) is probable for Tuesday's tilt vs. the Nuggets.

    Kuzma's ankle sprain is considered "mild," so there's a good chance he takes the court. Just to be sure, check back close to game time for another update.

    Kyle Kuzma, who missed Saturday's practice with a mild ankle sprain, will be able to play on Sunday.

    Kuzma's find to use if you're looking for empty scoring. He's not close to the top-150 this season.

    Kyle Kuzma sat out Saturday's practice with a mild ankle sprain and is questionable to play on Sunday.

    Kuzma has been outside the top-200 this season anyway, so he should already be on benches–if not waiver wires–in 12-team leagues. One can only hope that this isn't the same ankle that suffered a stress reaction, as it kept Kuzma on the sidelines to begin the year.

    Kyle Kuzma scored 16 points on 6-of-8 shooting (including four threes) with five rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes off the bench on Wednesday against the Pelicans.

    Kuzma doesn't have the strongest stat set so having a reduced role is pretty much a death knell to his standard league value. He might be productive enough to stay afloat in 14-16 team leagues, though.

    Kyle Kuzma came off the bench and scored five points to go along with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and a block in Saturday's win over Memphis.

    In 26 minutes off the bench, Kuzma did not do much offensively, taking just three shots. His regression continues and it is hard to tell if this is more of a function of the new line-up the Lakers are fielding or of his own accord. Based on recent performance, fantasy managers should begin searching for a more productive replacement going forward.

    Kyle Kuzma scored 10 points (4-for-6 shooting), two rebounds, two blocks and a triple in Friday's win over the Thunder.

    Kuzma came off the bench and had another so-so performance from a fantasy perspective. Dwight Howard also came off the bench and added 10 points (3-for-4 shooting), seven rebounds and a block. JaVale McGee started and only played 18 minutes contributing eight points, seven rebounds, one assist and a block.

    Kyle Kuzma (eye) had tests to confirm that he has a right eye abrasion, but he is expected to play on Friday.

    Kyle Kuzma says he tried to persuade the medical staff to clear him to return to the OKC game after he was scratched in the eye. Kuzma said earlier in the season that he wants to be the 3rd guy behind Lebron and AD. We know he can score, as he is averaging 13 points in just 22 minutes, but the rest of his stat line is scary empty, averaging four rebounds, 0.6 assists, 0.1 steals and 0.2 blocks. Kuzma is just a fringe late-round player in standard leagues.

    Kyle Kuzma had tests to confirm that he has a right eye abrasion, but he is expected to play on Friday.

    This is good news for the Lakers, who only got nine minutes from Kuzma on Tuesday prior to him getting poked in the eye. He is slated to practice with the team on Thursday as well.

    The Lakers said on Tuesday night that Kyle Kuzma will get further testing on his right eye injury after suffering an abrasion.

    Kuzma was reportedly able to return to the game last night but the Lakers opted to play it safe with their forward. This doesn’t appear to be a serious injury and the Lakers don’t play again until this Friday so hopefully he will be able to return sooner than later.

    Kyle Kuzma (eye abrasion) left Tuesday's game after playing just nine minutes, and while he was technically available to return, Frank Vogel chose not to use him anymore.

    It's a positive sign that he was available after the injury, but the situation should be monitored to be sure that Kuzma is going to play in the Lakers' next game on Friday before making decisions about how to use him.

    Kyle Kuzma was apparently poked in the right eye in Tuesday's game and is questionable to return.

    That's a bummer. Kuzma was just starting to get back into the flow of things prior to this injury. He leaves the game after playing only nine minutes, posting five points, one trey and one turnover.

    Kyle Kuzma suffered a cut near his right eye on Tuesday and headed to the locker room to address the bleeding.

    Assuming the trainers can control the bleed and get Kuzma cleared that there's nothing else wrong, it's likely he'll be able to return to the game.
