  • Mike Muscala - F/C - Los Angeles Lakers

    Mike Muscala (right ankle) will miss Sunday's matchup with the Kings.

    Muscala also missed Friday's game and shouldn't be in the core of anyone's fantasy team. Lance Stephenson (left toe) played on Friday and is good to go again on Sunday.

  • Lance Stephenson - G - Los Angeles Lakers

    Lance Stephenson (left toe sprain) will play on Friday vs. the Kings while Mike Muscala (sore right ankle) will not.

    It’ll be nice for Lakers’ fans to see Stephenson strumming his air guitar but he can be left on the wire as long as LeBron James is still active. We’ll see if Moritz Wagner can get some extra run with Muscala out.

  • Mike Muscala - F/C - Los Angeles Lakers

    Mike Muscala scored just two points on 1-of-6 field goals in 11 minutes while filling in for LeBron James on Tuesday night.

    It looks like LeBron's spot in the lineup will still be there when he returns.

    Luke Walton said Mike Muscala would start for the Lakers on Tuesday in place of LeBron James (sore left groin).

    The Lakers are dealing with injuries up and down the roser right now, and Muscala looks to be in a nice streaming and DFS spot on Tuesday with the starting nod. Kyle Kuzma will presumably slide over to the three and should get all the shots he can handle. Moritz Wagner and Johnathan Williams should also pick up some extra minutes with LeBron out.

    Mike Muscala (right ankle sprain) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Muscala was listed as available for Saturday's game, but did not see the court. He's got some upside as a deep-league 3-point specialist if the Lakers actually play him, but who knows what drives Luke Walton's decisions. He provides them some value as a floor-spacer that doesn't need the ball.

  • Mike Muscala - F/C - Los Angeles Lakers

    Mike Muscala (sprained right ankle) didn't leave the bench in Saturday's loss to the Pelicans.

    Muscala was deemed available for this one but didn't check in. He gives the Lakers a needed element of shooting, so we'd imagine that he's still not 100 percent. Either way, Muscala clearly isn't a huge priority in terms of playing time and can be left on the wire just about everywhere.

    Mike Muscala (sprained right ankle) is available for Saturday's game against the Pelicans.

    Muscala has not done anything since coming over to the Lakers, but has some upside as a shooter playing with LeBron. If he can stay on the floor, he's got deep-league specialist upside for 3-pointers.

  • Mike Muscala - F/C - Los Angeles Lakers

    Mike Muscala (sprained right ankle) is listed as questionable to play on Saturday vs. the Pelicans.

    Muscala is a new addition to the Lakers but has only played in one game so far. It's conceivable he could carve out some deep-league value as a stetch-5 but we'll have to see him on the court first.

    Mike Muscala (sprained right ankle) has been ruled out of Thursday's matchup with the Rockets.

    From probable to out in a matter of hours. If the Lakers need a floor-spacer up front it'll fall on Moe Wagner tonight, but this isn't a situation that should yield much fantasy value.

    Mike Muscala (sprained right ankle) is now questionable to face the Rockets on Thursday.

    Muscala was previously listed as probable. The Lakers will be thin up front tonight if he can't play. We'll keep you updated on his condition.

    Mike Muscala (sprained right ankle) is probable for Thursday's game against the Rockets.

    Muscala was available for the last game before the break but didn't end up seeing any playing time. He'll provide the Lakers some stretch four minutes off the bench but isn't a great fantasy option, even in deeper leagues. That could change if he gets more playing time going forward but you can wait until that happens to make any type of move.

    Mike Muscala (sprained right ankle) was listed as available for Tuesday's game against the Hawks but didn't end up playing.

    Muscala may have gotten a DNP-CD here, but we're betting on him not quite being 100 percent since JaVale McGee only logged 13 minutes tonight. Moose could threaten top-200 value if the Lakers give him run as the primary backup in the frontcourt but the early returns haven't been encouraging.

  • Mike Muscala - F/C - Los Angeles Lakers

    Mike Muscala (sprained right ankle) is good to go for Tuesday's game against the Hawks.

    Muscala is looking at extra minutes with Tyson Chandler out tonight. He brings a stretch-four skillset to the table and might be worth a look in deeper leagues for short-term value.

    Mike Muscala didn't participate in Tuesday's shootaround putting his status for tonight’s game against the Hawks in danger.

    Muscala suffered the injury after playing against the Sixers on Sunday and with Tyson Chandler also questionable the Lakers might have to use rookie Mo Wagner extended minutes on Tuesday. JaVale McGee meanwhile remains locked and loaded as the starting center.

    Mike Muscala played 13 minutes in Sunday's loss, adding eight points and two 3-pointers in his Lakers debut.

    Muscala gives the Lakers some much-needed spacing and has a shot at deep-league value if he can carve out more playing time going forward. It's unlikely we get anything to be excited about, though.
