Lakers' Luol Deng: Undergoes surgery on pectoral muscle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deng underwent surgery on his right pectoral muscle on Wednesday, Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

The Lakers expect the veteran forward to make a full recovery by the start of training camp. Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times reports Deng's surgery was needed due to an incident weightlifting recently. He signed a four-year, $72 million contract with the Lakers prior to the 2016-17 season, but ultimately underwhelmed in his on-court production. The Lakers opted to shut the Duke product down in mid-march in order to get younger talent playing time, as the team was out of the playoff picture. Given his contract, Deng figures to be a regular in the rotation next season, barring any setbacks with this current injury.

Lakers' Luol Deng: Agrees to sit out rest of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deng met with coach Luke Walton last week and agreed to sit out for the remainder of the season, ESPN.com's Ramona Shelburne reports.

Both Deng and Timofey Mozgov, who were signed to contracts this summer worth a combined $136 million over four years, will both be shut down in an effort for the Lakers to find more playing time for their younger players over the final 15 games. The report doesn't come as much of a surprise, considering that Deng hasn't seen the court in any of the past seven games with Walton leaning on Brandon Ingram and Larry Nance as his primary small forwards. While Deng's hefty contract will likely keep him in the rotation at the start of next season, he won't stand to see much of an upgrade in fantasy value, as Ingram and Nance's roles are only likely to grow, not diminish in 2017-18. Assuming Walton sticks to his plan to make Deng inactive the rest of the way, the veteran will finish his first season with the Lakers with averages of 7.6 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 26.5 minutes per game over 56 appearances.

Lakers' Luol Deng: Inactive Friday vs. Celtics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deng (coach's decision) will be inactive for Friday's game against the Celtics, Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Deng was dropped from the rotation in Tuesday's game against the Hornets, and it appears he'll be out of the mix for playing time again while coach Luke Walton turns over the small forward spot to youngsters Brandon Ingram and Larry Nance. With the Lakers seemingly embracing full-on rebuild mode, Deng can probably be dropped in just about every league.

Lakers' Luol Deng: Scoreless in 13 minutes during Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deng had zero points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 13 minutes during Sunday's 119-98 loss to the Spurs.

Deng has played a combined 31 minutes in the two games following the All-Star break, this after receiving less than 20 minutes only six times through his first 53 appearances this season. It appears that the Lakers are starting to funnel more minutes towards the younger players, and Brandon Ingram scored a career-high 22 points in 35 minutes. Therefore, Deng shouldn't be counted on for consistent fantasy production going forward. Furthermore, this was Deng's fourth scoreless showing of 2016-17, so he wasn't exactly a reliable contributor even prior to this point.

Lakers' Luol Deng: Will come off bench Monday vs. Knicks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deng will move to the bench for Monday's matchup with the Knicks, Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Deng has been the Lakers' starting small forward for much of the season but coach Luke Walton is benching him in favor of rookie Brandon Ingram. Deng has played 27.3 minutes per game this season but he could see a reduction in time as long as he's coming off of the bench.
