Lakers' Tyler Ennis: Puts up 11 points Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ennis supplied 11 points (4-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), one assist and one steal across 27 minutes in a 119-108 loss to the Wizards on Tuesday.

Coach Luke Walton's decision to phase Nick Young out of the rotation has worked to the benefit of Ennis, who has seen more than 25 minutes in the last two contests while hitting double figures in scoring on both occasions. Since backcourt starters Jordan Clarkson and D'Angelo Russell are more integral parts of the rebuilding Lakers' future and aren't at risk of getting shut down, Ennis doesn't figure to absorb much more court time than he's currently receiving, but a 25-minute role could make him appealing roster filler in deeper leagues over the final two weeks of the season.

Lakers' Larry Nance: Grabs 11 boards Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nance collected four points (2-6 FG), 11 rebounds, two blocks and one assist across 24 minutes in a 119-108 loss to the Wizards on Tuesday.

Coach Luke Walton's decision to shut down Luol Deng after the All-Star break and gradually phase Nick Young out of the rotation has worked to the benefit of Nance, who has picked up 20-plus minutes in all but three of the Lakers' 16 games in March. While Nance's scoring contributions remain volatile from game to game, he's been a regular fixture on the glass, having now pulled down at least seven boards in three consecutive contests. With Walton eager to give his youngsters plenty of run over the final two weeks of the season, Nance have some usefulness for owners in deeper leagues during the fantasy playoffs.

Lakers' Julius Randle: Limited to six points Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Randle provided six points (2-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, five assists and one block across 32 minutes in a 119-108 loss to the Wizards on Tuesday.

It appeared that Randle might have had a breakthrough after turning in a 23-point, 12-rebound double-double in last Friday's win over the Timberwolves, but he's since reverted to his inconsistent ways. He's scored a combined 10 points (on 4-of-14 shooting) and grabbed 15 rebounds over the last two contests, despite receiving favorable matchups against up-tempo attacks in the Trail Blazers and Wizards. The third-year big man still offers tantalizing upside in DFS contests, but his boom-or-bust nature makes him a more viable play in tournaments rather than cash games.

Lakers' D'Angelo Russell: Turns in 28-9-6 stat line in Tuesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell posted 28 points (10-21 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine assists, six rebounds and one block across 40 minutes in a 119-108 loss to the Wizards on Tuesday.

The Lakers aren't overly concerned about wins and losses at this stage of the season, so Russell's strong play of late has to be the more encouraging takeaway for the rebuilding franchise. He's been outstanding since reentering the starting lineup at shooting guard over the last five games, averaging 24.6 points (on 48.8% shooting from the field), 5.6 assists, 3.4 three-pointers, 2.8 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 38.0 minutes. It appears as though he may be a more natural fit in an off-the-ball role than as a point guard, and while that's normally bad news for a player's fantasy value, Russell might prove to be the exception.

Lakers' Nick Young: Won't play Tuesday in coach's decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Luke Walton said Young wouldn't play in Tuesday's game against the Wizards, but hasn't necessarily been shut down for the season, Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Walton decided to shut down Timofey Mozgov and Luol Deng shortly after the All-Star break in order to get a longer look at some of the team's younger players, and it appears Young could be the next veteran to get phased out. The lottery-bound Lakers have little incentive to find playing time for the 31-year-old at the expense of younger options, so it's expected that Walton will roll with Jordan Clarkson, D'Angelo Russell, Tyler Ennis and David Nwaba as his primary backcourt options the rest of the way. Young may see some usage off the bench over the final handful of games, but don't expect him to receive meaningful minutes in any of his appearances.
