    Lakers' Quinn Cook: Plays garbage time

    Quinn Cook logged four minutes off the bench in Tuesday's 129-102 win over the Spurs, contributing zero points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and one rebound.Cook has seen action in three straight games, but they've all essentially been garbage-time appearances, as he hasn't exceeded five minutes in any of those contests. The Los Angeles Lakers value Cook as an experienced backup at point guard who's capable of knocking down outside shots, but he won't have a path to steady playing time while all of LeBron James, Rajon Rondo and Alex Caruso are healthy.

    Lakers' Quinn Cook: Drops season-high 22 points

    Quinn Cook managed 22 points (9-14 FG, 4-7 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 119-118 loss to the Magic.Cook poured in a season-high 22 points in the loss, pacing the Los Angeles Lakers on what was a disappointing night. With Rajon Rondo (finger) sidelined, the Lakers are basically going to go with whoever has the hot hand. Cook could very well play 10 minutes in the next game making him a tough player to trust in standard leagues.

    Lakers' Quinn Cook: Only three minutes in blowout

    Quinn Cook tallied just six points in three minutes during Friday's 129-114 victory over Dallas.Cook emerged in garbage time as the Los Angeles Lakers soundly defeated the Mavericks. After a couple of serviceable efforts earlier in the season, Cook has basically fallen out of the rotation in more recent times. Cook would need multiple injuries to even be considered in 12-team formats.

    Lakers' Quinn Cook: Barely coming off bench

    Quinn Cook has gathered eight DNP designations over the Los Angeles Lakers' last 10 games.Cook started as a regular member of the rotation early in the season, but he saw his role diminish as the calendar advanced and now has eight DNP designations over the Lakers' previous 10 games. He is buried at the end of the Lakers' bench, and he barely has fantasy upside at the moment unless there's an injury to a backcourt player.

    Lakers' Quinn Cook: Plays 10 minutes

    Quinn Cook contributed two points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and an assist in Friday's 136-113 win over the Trail Blazers.The 26-year-old's recent playing time seems to revolve around two components: game scenario and depth chart. The point guard only participated after Los Angeles established a 20-point lead, and Rajon Rondo (hamstring) left during the contest. Under a typical scenario when the game is close and everyone is healthy, Cook is not expected to be given many minutes and thus has limited value in any fantasy league.

    Lakers' Quinn Cook: Scores 17 points off bench

    Quinn Cook had 17 points (6-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 26 minutes of a 118-112 win against Chicago.Cook finished with the second most points on the team despite coming off the bench in the contest. Cook played a season-high minutes in the contest with Avery Bradley (lower leg) ruled out. The Los Angeles Lakers seem content to allow LeBron James handle the primary ball handling role, which would keep Cook in a secondary role, however with Bradley and Rajon Rondo out, it opens up minutes for the Duke product and allows James to shift back to his natural position. However when Bradley and Rondo return, Cook will likely see his role decrease.

    Lakers' Quinn Cook: Works the point off bench

    Quinn Cook posted 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt), eight assists and three rebounds across 24 minutes in Sunday's 120-101 win over the Hornets.When the Los Angeles Lakers are utilizing LeBron as the floor general, you likely won't see much of Cook, but depending on the matchup, we should see James flip over to the wing frequently, and that's where Cook (and eventually Rajon Rondo) will come in handy. Right now, Cook is enjoying a full complement of minutes, but his numbers will inevitably retreat once Rondo is 100 percent healthy.
