Top Rui Hachimura News

  • Lakers' Rui Hachimura: Solid contribution in victory

    Hachimura registered 17 points (8-15 FG, 1-5 3Pt), two rebounds and one steal in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 116-112 win over the Clippers.

    Hachimura delivered as a scoring threat during Wednesday's win, but the team could use a little more help from him in secondary categories. It's hard to carve a significant role when LeBron James and Anthony Davis are carrying the load, and while the 6-foot-8 Gonzaga product pops for a decent number often enough, he's averaging only 3.8 rebounds per game. Activity off the glass is largely missing from Hachimura's game since he joined the Lakers last season.

  • Lakers' Rui Hachimura: Puts up 17 points in win

    Hachimura racked up 17 points (7-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt), seven rebounds, one block and two steals over 32 minutes during Friday's 123-118 victory over San Antonio.

    Hachimura saw the fourth-most minutes for Los Angeles behind D'Angelo Russell (35), LeBron James (34) and Austin Reaves (33). Hachimura has now started eight straight games, and over that stretch he has reached double-digit scoring four times. The big man is averaging 14.4 points, 4.5 rebounds, 0.5 steals, 0.8 blocks and 1.6 triples across 31.3 minutes over the eight-game span.

  • Lakers' Rui Hachimura: Dominates from deep in season high

    Hachimura chipped in 36 points (13-19 FG, 6-8 3Pt, 4-5 FT), two rebounds, one assist and one block in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 138-122 victory over the Jazz.

    Hachimura posted his best offensive performance of the season while picking up the gap left behind by LeBron James (ankle) and other Lakers players who were inactive, connecting on a half-dozen threes while ending as one of two players with 35 or more points. Hachimura surpassed the 30-point mark for the first time this season, setting season-best marks in both scoring and threes made in an impressive showcase.

  • Lakers' Rui Hachimura: Turns in 21 points

    Hachimura provided 21 points (9-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one block across 37 minutes during Friday's 139-122 win over the Pelicans.

    The Lakers chose to stand pat at the trade deadline, confirming their faith in Hachimura, who represented one of the team's best moves last season. Jarred Vanderbilt (foot) is expected to miss at least three weeks, and while Hachimura already had a leg up on his teammate, he'll likely see a steady lift his minute total for the next few weeks. The Gonzaga product is proving to be a better fit for the starting lineup, as Taurean Prince has struggled with the first unit.

  • Lakers' Rui Hachimura: Nabs another start

    Hachimura will start Saturday's game against the Knicks, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    Hachimura will replace Taurean Prince in the first unit Saturday for his eighth start of the campaign. In his previous seven starts, Hachimura averaged 13.0 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists.

  • Lakers' Rui Hachimura: Back in bench role

    Hachimura will come off the bench Thursday against the Bulls, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    Hachimura drew a pair of starts Sunday against the Trail Blazers and Tuesday against the Clippers, but the Gonzaga product will retreat to the bench now that LeBron James and Taurean Prince are back at full strength. Hachimura is averaging 19.0 minutes in his last four contests as a reserve.

  • Lakers' Rui Hachimura: Joins starting lineup

    Hachimura is starting Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

    Hachimura has come off the bench in his four appearances since returning from a calf injury, but he'll make his sixth start of the season Sunday due to Taurean Prince (knee) being sidelined. Over his previous five starts this year, Hachimura has averaged 14.2 points and 4.2 rebounds in 25.4 minutes per game.

  • Lakers' Rui Hachimura: Delivers donut Friday

    Hachimura notched zero points (0-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist over 15 minutes during Friday's 130-112 loss to the Nets.

    Hachimura failed to score in 15 minutes, highlighting why he should not be considered a viable long-term fantasy asset. He is currently averaging 11.2 points in 22.9 minutes per game, placing him well outside the top 200 in standard leagues. Other than limited value as a points streamer, Hachimura can be overlooked in all competitive formats.

  • Lakers' Rui Hachimura: Returns to action with 17 points

    Hachimura (calf) registered 17 points (6-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one steal over 19 minutes during Saturday's 132-125 loss to Utah.

    Hachimura missed five games with a calf injury but made a timely return to action Saturday while the Lakers were without LeBron James (knee) and didn't have Cam Reddish (knee) available after halftime. Though he helped fill some of the offensive void created by James' absence and was a team-best plus-12 during his time on the court, Hachimura offered little production outside of the scoring column and will likely remain a volatile fantasy performer on a game-by-game basis. If James is back in action for Monday's game against the Thunder, Hachimura will likely see a steady drop in the team-high 32.8 percent usage rate he handled Saturday.

  • Lakers' Rui Hachimura: Not listed on injury report

    Hachimura (calf) isn't listed on the injury report for Saturday's game against Utah, Khobi Price of The Orange County Register reports.

    Hachimura is cleared to suit up following a five-game absence due to a calf injury. With Cam Reddish (knee), D'Angelo Russell (knee) and LeBron James (ankle) all questionable, Hachimura could be looking at 20-plus minutes in his first game back.

  • Lakers' Rui Hachimura: Ruled out Thursday

    Hachimura (calf) will not play in Thursday's game against the Suns, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

  • Lakers' Rui Hachimura: Doubtful for Thursday

    Hachimura (calf) is doubtful for Thursday's game against the Suns, ESPN's Dave McMenamin reports.

    Hachimura is expected to miss his fifth straight game, but coach Darvin Ham did say at the beginning of the week that the forward was making good progress. Assuming Hachimura sits, Christian Wood will likely continue to see a bump in playing time off the bench.

    Hachimura (calf) won't play against the Clippers on Sunday, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

  • Lakers' Rui Hachimura: Won't play Friday

    Hachimura (calf) will not play in Friday's game versus Memphis, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Hachimura picked up a Grade 1 calf strain on Sunday versus the Pelicans, but the Lakers announced Wednesday that he is considered day-to-day. He will miss his second game in a row Friday, however, so Christian Wood could get another extended opportunity after scoring 13 points with eight rebounds, three assists and one block in 24 minutes against the Heat on Wednesday.

    Hachimura sustained the injury Sunday against the Pelicans and was ruled out on the Lakers' initial injury report. However, it appears the forward avoided a serious injury. Regardless, he should be considered questionable at best for Friday's game against Memphis.
