    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.

    Kyle Kuzma dropped 17 points on 6-of-14 shooting in a win over the Hawks on Sunday.

    Kuzma is back into the swing of things and should cruise to late-round value. He added five rebounds, three triples and one block to the stat sheet.

    Kyle Kuzma finished Friday's home win with 13 points (4-of-9 shooting), three 3-pointers and five rebounds in 26 minutes of action off the bench.

    Ah yes, this guy is clearly the piece that will put the Lakers over the top. Enjoy the late-round fantasy value. Hopefully you didn't pay full price.

    Kyle Kuzma started and finished Wednesday night's contest with 22 points on 7-of-12 shooting, five rebounds, two assists, and three 3-pointers.

    Kuzma has put together a nice streak of games. He adds scoring and 3-pointers, but can't find a way to help teams in other categories. Kuzma will likely end up having late-round value at this pace.

    Kyle Kuzma will get the starting nod while Anthony Davis (rib soreness, shoulder sorness) sits out on Wednesday.

    Kuzma is the logical fill in here and was going to see a lot of run no matter who started this one. Davis will likely not be sidelined long so don't take too much away from his performance tonight.

    Anthony Davis will miss Wednesday's game against the Warriors with shoulder and rib soreness.

    The issues are not considered serious, but this obviously impacts the Lakers' rotation. Kyle Kuzma and Dwight Howard should receive more playing time for at least one night.

    Kyle Kuzma had his best game of the season, putting up 23 points (9-for-16 FGs, 2-for-2 FTs), four rebounds, three 3-pointers and one steal in 25 minutes in a 123-115 win over the Suns on Tuesday.

    Kuzma looks to have levelled off around 25 minutes off the bench, which could be enough to keep him around in standard leagues. He got significantly more minutes in his first two seasons since the team was relatively barren most of the time. And even so, he provided just late-round value. He's a good player to try to sell based on his popularity.

    Kyle Kuzma led the Lakers in bench minutes again on Sunday with 24 as he put up 15 points in a loss to the Raptors.

    He is still recovering from a stress reaction in his foot, but it is promising to see that his scoring ability has not changed. He missed a few wide open triples that could have changed the course of the game, but he will not be perfect upon returning from injury. Expect top-120 value from Kuzma when he returns to form.
