World Peace (coach's decision) was inactive for Tuesday's 122-111 loss to the Mavericks. World Peace hasn't played since Feb. 6, and with the team now at full health, it's unlikely he'll receive any opportunities to even dress for games in the near future. The 37-year-old will continue to bring most of his value to the team during practices and in the locker room.
World Peace (coach's decision) was inactive for Thursday's 116-108 loss to the Wizards. World Peace has been limited to one one-minute appearance over the Lakers' last eight games, and now that the roster is back to full strength, he'll likely be a fixture on the inactive list. The 37-year-old's main value at this stage of his career will come as a mentor to the team's younger players.
World Peace (coach's decision) was inactive for Thursday's 134-94 loss to the Spurs. The Lakers decided to guarantee World Peace's one-year contract for the rest of the season earlier this week, but the added security won't result in an enhanced role for the veteran. He's likely to remain inactive in most games when no more than one player is out with an injury.
World Peace will return to a bench role for Wednesday's game against the Rockets, Mike Trudell of Lakers.com reports. World Peace got the spot start for Monday's tilt with the Jazz, but the Lakers will once again shake up their guard rotation, pushing Jordan Clarkson and Marcelo Huertas into the starting five, with Brandon Ingram and World Peace coming off the bench. World Peace saw just 12 minutes in his start Monday and doesn't expect to see a big bump in playing time Wednesday, so he can still be avoided in the the majority of fantasy leagues.
World Peace will get a spot start at shooting guard for Monday's matchup against the Jazz, Serena Winters of Lakers Nation reports. The Lakers are without D'Angelo Russell and Jose Calderon, so it is currently slim pickings in the backcourt. The expectation was that Jordan Clarkson would get the start, but he has been struggling to produce while getting a lot of extra run due to the aforementioned injuries. Both Clarkson and Lou Williams will presumably get most of the work in the backcourt as the game progresses. World Peace has played in seven games this season, with a season-high 14 minutes on Nov. 23 in a blowout loss to the Warriors.
