Fantasy News

  • LeBron James
    SF, Los Angeles Lakers

    LeBron James scored 15 points on 5-of-12 shooting with seven rebounds and 13 dimes in Monday's 107-139 loss to the Celtics.

    James continues his absurd assist rate, but tonight he wasn't able to register any money counters. The Celtics dominated the Lakers in this match though, so the fact that James was still able to deliver an almost full line is an accomplishment in itself.

  • Kyle Kuzma
    PF, Los Angeles Lakers

    Kyle Kuzma scored 13 points on 4-of-12 shooting to go with three rebounds and a steal on Monday.

    Kuzma predictably struggled when returning to the bench tonight, logging 23 minutes and hitting no shots from deep. To make matters worse, he went 5-for-7 at the line and didn't record an assist or a block.

  • JaVale McGee
    C, Los Angeles Lakers

    JaVale McGee scored 18 points on 7-of-9 shooting to go with five rebounds and three blocks on Monday.

    McGee did all of his work in 18 minutes, but the Celtics starters worked the Lakers which limited his playing time. Teammate Dwight Howard (nine points, 10 rebounds and a steal in 19 minutes) didn't do much better as they ran into a buzzsaw tonight.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis was limited on Monday, scoring nine points on 3-of-7 shooting to go with four rebounds, two assists, a steal and two blocks.

    Davis saved his line by swatting two shots, but overall it was a forgettable night. He had five fouls and the Celtics just ran up the score on the Lakers tonight so there's not too much to read into. The good news is, the Brow is back.

  • Rajon Rondo
    PG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Rajon Rondo (fractured right ring finger) will be available to face the Celtics on Monday.

    Rondo hasn't played since January 11. Quinn Cook and Alex Caruso should see their roles diminish now that he has returned. However, Rondo does not deliver consistent value on such a deep team.

  • Rajon Rondo
    PG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Rajon Rondo (fractured right ring finger) is being listed as questionable to play in Monday's primetime matchup with the Celtics.

    Rondo hit a game-winning shot against the Celtics the last time the Lakers traveled to Boston, and he would seemingly love to get out there for this against his former team. Keep an eye on his status as the day progresses.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis will return from his gluteal contusion on Monday versus the Celtics.

    Davis' sore butt cost him five games, but he returns against one of the best possible matchups in the Celtics. It comes as a slight surprise given that he only took limited part in practice on Friday and then didn't practice at all over the weekend. It's unlikely that Davis is eased back, but as the best per-minute producer in the history of fantasy basketball, he's an obvious start tonight regardless of any hypothetical restrictions. The slice of the pie for Javale McGee and Dwight Howard shrinks with this news, and expect the two centers to cancel each other's value just as they had been doing prior to Davis' butt bruise.

  • Danny Green
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Danny Green racked up four steals on Saturday to go with 20 points, five rebounds, one block and four triples in 33 minutes.

    This line is as good as it gets for Green with bunches of threes and defensive stats. Green is inside the top-130 on the season and can provide late-round value with threes, steals and blocks. His low upside makes him more suitable for 14-team leagues.

  • LeBron James
    SF, Los Angeles Lakers

    LeBron James dominated the Rockets in a 124-115 victory with 31 points, five rebounds, 12 assists and two steals.

    James carried the Lakers to a victory without Anthony Davis. James has bounced back this year and is putting up first-round value again. Expect more of the same moving forward for LeBron.

  • Kyle Kuzma
    PF, Los Angeles Lakers

    Kyle Kuzma scored 23 points on 8-of-16 shooting to go with eight rebounds and three 3-pointers in a 124-115 victory over the Rockets on Saturday.

    Kuzma headed to the locker room in the first half with an ankle injury but was able to return to the game after getting it taped up. Kuzma can be streamed for points, rebounds and threes while Anthony Davis is out, but he doesn't do enough when the Lakers are at full strength and can be dropped once Davis is back in the lineup.

  • Kyle Kuzma
    PF, Los Angeles Lakers

    Kyle Kuzma injured his ankle on Saturday and headed to the locker room but is available to return.

    Kuzma got his ankle taped up and quickly returned to the bench so he looks to be alright.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis (glute contusion) will not play in Saturday's game against the Rockets.

    The Lakers superstar big man is not quite ready to get back on the floor, but he is seemingly close. With Davis sitting out, Kyle Kuzma will once again be looking at added opportunities while LeBron James takes on even more usage.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis (glute contusion) is being listed as questionable to play in Saturday's primetime game against the Rockets.

    Davis is considered a game-time decision, so his status will likely come right down to the wire. Make sure to keep track of Davis's status as we get closer tipoff.

  • Rajon Rondo
    PG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Rajon Rondo (fractured right ring finger) will not play against Houston on Saturday.

    Rondo will miss his third straight game which means some extra minutes for Quinn Cook and Alex Caruso but LeBron James is the team starting point guard so the two backups remain irrelevant in standard leagues.

  • Alex Caruso
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Alex Caruso (head) is upgraded from probable to available against the Rockets on Saturday.

    Caruso played only four minutes in Wednesday's game before being ruled out after taking a shot in the mouth. He might be in line for some extra minutes with Rajon Rondo out but does not really do enough on the stat sheet to get recognition in standard leagues.
