  • Kyle Kuzma - F - Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers have not wanted to include their third year forward, Kyle Kuzma, in a trade package for Anthony Davis but the Pelicans may may hold off on a potential trade until he is included.

    The speculation surrounding a potential Anthony Davis trade has been swirling around the NBA ever since he demanded a trade earlier this season. The Lakers have always been seen as the front-runners and were rumored to have offered Kuzma at the deadline. However, it seems that they are trying to keep Kuzma out of a potential deal for as long as they can. If the Pelicans do insist that Kuzma must be included to make the deal work, expect the Lakers to oblige. A Davis trade will most likely happen before the draft on June 20th.

    Kyle Kuzma’s season ended with his sixth consecutive absence due to left foot tendinitis on Tuesday.

    Kuzma also missed two games with a right ankle sprain, two with a left hip strain and two more with a bruised back. He took on more of a scoring load towards the end of the year when LeBron James and Brandon Ingram were sidelined and ended up posting a career-high 18.5 points per game on the season. Kuzma’s stat set still relies too heavily on volume, but he did manage to increase his overall efficiency from .450 to .456 even as his 3-point shooting dipped from .366 to .303. Add it all up and he delivered top-110/130 per-game value and top-110/120 total value. The hype seems larger than the production with Kuzma, as it does for most Lakers, so until he starts rounding out his game he’s not one of our preferred fantasy targets.

    Kyle Kuzma (left foot peroneal tendonitis) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Jazz.

    Kuzma may very well be out for the season with the rest of the relevant Lakers. Alex Caruso should have another opportunity to supplant his case for the hall of fame. Mike Muscala, Johnathan Williams and Mo Wagner should also see more minutes with Kuzma out.

    The Lakers listed Kyle Kuzma (left foot peroneal tendinitis) as questionable for Thursday's game against the Warriors.

    With everyone else getting shut down for the season, it seems Kuzma will be right behind them in due time. Mo Wagner, Mike Muscala and Johnathan Williams will continue to hold down the fort as PF and backup C.

    Luke Walton said that Kyle Kuzma will be re-evaluated when the team gets back to Los Angeles, while there is a possibility that the medical staff decides it's not worth it for him to return.

    The Lakers play four more times until the end of the season but owners should prepare for the shutdown scenario. With Los Angeles mathematically eliminated from playoff contention we should expect to see more of Mo Wagner, Mike Muscala and Johnathan Williams down the road.

    The Lakers are listing Kyle Kuzma (left foot tendinitis) as out ahead of Tuesday's game against the Thunder.

    Mo Wagner started for Kuzma on Sunday and will likely look to do so again tonight. Along with Wagner, Mike Muscala and Johnathan Williams will also see an uptick in minutes as the Lakers limp to the finish line. With a small slate on the docket Tuesday, all three have potential to be decent cheap DFS plays.

    Kyle Kuzma (left foot tendinitis) is questionable ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Thunder.

    Kuzma sat out on Sunday and Mo Wagner started. The rookie returned a mixed bag with two blocks, seven rebounds and a 3-pointer but just a 2-of-8 shooting line in 29 minutes. The stat set remains nice, however, so he'd be worth another look if Kuzma couldn't go tomorrow.

    Kyle Kuzma (left foot tendonitis) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Pelicans.

    Assuming Kuzma does sit for this one, Mo Wagner will get the start. With LeBron James out, there's going to be a lot of usage to go around, and Wagner may be able to produce a decent game.
