Mo Wagner only played four minutes on Sunday against the Knicks.
Wagner put up six points and a 3-pointer but there's nothing to see here for fantasy purposes until his workload increases. The stat set is solid but the playing time can't support any significant value. Johnathan Williams put up 12 points and seven rebounds in 25 minutes with Wagner left on the back burner.

Moritz Wagner scored zero points with a rebound and a steal in eight minutes of action on Thursday.
Wagner was a hot name earlier this week, but even with the Lakers low on bodies he can't seem to get on the floor. You can safely ignore him in all formats until the Lakers decide to rest their players.

Moritz Wagner played just 10 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Bulls, scoring five points with a rebound, an assists and a three-pointer.
The minutes are disappointing to see after it looked like Wagner might be in line for consistent, big minutes. As the Lakers rest players down the stretch, though, there's a decent chance we haven't seen the last of valuable Wagner games.

Moe Wagner played a career-high 27 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Nuggets, scoring 11 points with three rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers.
Wagner also set a career-high with 11 shots tonight, though he only hit four of them. He took on the backup center job with Tyson Chandler out tonight and flashed an interesting stat set that should yield value down the line. Wagner won't make much impact unless the Lakers admit their season is done, but this is a performance to note in those extremely deep leagues. Johnathan Williams also checked in with 15 minutes and eight points.

Moe Wagner scored 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting in a career-high 17 minutes in a loss to the Wizards on Sunday.
He saw an uptick in minutes with JaVale McGee out in this one and had his best performance of the season. This was his first game seeing minutes outside of garbage time and he capitalized on the opportunity. He added three rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers to the box score. He is not worth owning unless there is significant injury to either McGee or Tyson Chandler.

Mo Wagner made his NBA debut on Saturday night, checking in for the final two minutes of a blowout loss.
Wagner missed his only shot (a 3-pointer) and registered no other stats in his time on the court. The addition of Tyson Chandler all but erases any hopes that Wagner could be a factor for re-draft leagues this year.

Moe Wagner will be active for the first time on Wednesday against the Mavericks.
Wagner is a player to watch since his floor spacing ability is a better fit with LeBron James than JaVale McGee. McGee has been a top-25 asset so far this season, but is likely do to regress at some point so you should see what you can get for him on the trade market. Unless Wagner blows up right away McGee should still be safe for at least 25 minutes per game for a while.

Moe Wagner (left knee contusion) is listed as out for Saturday’s game against the Rockets.
Wagner played full contact 5-on-5 at practice on Friday so it seems he’s getting pretty close to a return assuming he hasn’t had any setbacks. Alex Caruso (right hip strain) is listed as questionable.

Moritz Wagner (left knee contusion) is listed as out for Thursday's season opener.
Wagner showed off his offensive ability in Summer League before suffering a knee contusion that has kept him out all training camp. The Lakers are expected to run a lot of small ball lineups as their only active centers are JaVale McGee and Ivica Zubac. Expect to see Kyle Kuzma and possibly LeBron James at the five while Wagner is out.
