Wear appeared in 17 games for the Lakers in 2017-18 and averaged 4.4 points, 2.2 rebounds and 0.4 assists. Wear was finally able to land a contract with an NBA team, his first since the 2014-15 season. The former UCLA forward wasn't much of a factor for the Lakers at any point of the season though as it's likely that he will find himself playing for a G League team when the season start next year.
Wear was recalled from the G League on Friday. Wear has shuttled back and forth from the NBA and G League, but he'll be in uniform and available off the bench Friday against Minnesota. Wear hasn't played in any of the Lakers' last four games, however, so it's unclear if he'll have much of a role.
Wear was assigned to the G-League on Thursday. Wear will head back down and rejoin South Bay in their current run in the G-League playoffs. Look for Wear to play in the Western Conference Finals on Thursday night against the Austin Spurs, but should then be recalled shortly after. However, Wear has been a DNP-CD in the last four games for the Lakers, so he can continue to be avoided for fantasy purposes when recalled.
Wear has been recalled from the G-League's South Bay Lakers. Wear took the court for South Bay on Tuesday, helping the team to a playoff victory by posting 23 points, 11 rebounds and a steal across 38 minutes. He'll likely continue bouncing back and forth between the NBA and the G-League as long as South Bay is still in contention.
Wear was recalled from the G-League on Sunday. Wear was sent down for a brief stint with South Bay over the weekend, helping them secure a playoff victory over the Oklahoma City Blue with a 21-point effort Saturday. He'll now be recalled back to the big club and should be active off the bench for Sunday's tilt with the Kings. Wear has averaged a respectable 17.0 minutes over the last three games he's played in with the Lakers, but still isn't someone to consider for fantasy purposes.
