  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Out for finale

    Anthony (illness) will not play in Sunday's finale against the Nuggets, Bill Oram of The Athletic reports.

    As expected, the veteran will sit out the final game of the year with the Lakers out of playoff contention. He'll finish his first campaign with the Lakers averaging 13.3 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 26.0 minutes -- similar to the numbers he's been putting up since he left the Knicks.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Remains out Friday

    Anthony (illness) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Thunder, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Anthony will miss a second straight game due to a non-COVID illness. The Lakers will also be without LeBron James (ankle), Anthony Davis (foot) and Russell Westbrook (shoulder), so Malik Monk and Talen Horton-Tucker are expected to garner increased offensive responsibilities once again.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Won't play Thursday

    Anthony won't play in Thursday's game against Golden State due to an illness, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The veteran has apparently come down with a non-COVID-related illness and won't be available for the Lakers on Thursday. Stanley Johnson and Wenyen Gabriel are two candidates who could possibly see increased run versus the Warriors with Anthony on the sidelines.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Contributes 17 points from bench

    Anthony supplied 17 points (8-18 FG, 1-7 3Pt), two rebounds and two assists in 26 minutes during Sunday's 129-118 loss to the Nuggets.

    Anthony's shot volume was up amid LeBron James' (knee) absence. The grizzled veteran has excelled during the Lakers' continuous string of injuries, and the insertion of Anthony Davis allowed him to shift his focus from frontcourt duties, converting to more of a scoring threat at the wing.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Available Sunday

    Anthony (illness) is available for Sunday's game against the Nuggets.

    As expected, Anthony will return to the rotation following a one-game absence due to a non-COVID illness. Over his last six appearances, the veteran forward has averaged 9.5 points and 4.3 rebounds in 20.7 minutes per game.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Probable vs. Nuggets

    Anthony (illness) is probable for Sunday's matchup against the Nuggets, Harrison Faigen of SBNation.com reports.

    The veteran should return following a one-game absence due to a non-COVID illness. More notably, LeBron James (ankle) and Anthony Davis (foot) are both questionable, and that could affect Anthony's workload.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Ruled out Friday

    Anthony has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Pelicans due to a non-COVID illness, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.

    Anthony wasn't on the Lakers' injury report ahead of Friday's matchup, but he'll be a late scratch due to his illness. Wenyen Gabriel (ankle) and Trevor Ariza could see additional work against New Orleans.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Puts up 20 points in loss

    Anthony chipped in 20 points (8-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and seven rebounds in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 126-121 loss to Philadelphia.

    The Lakers got plenty of production from their veterans Wednesday, with Anthony, Dwight Howard and Russell Westbrook combining for 68 points. This was Anthony's first performance of 20-plus points since he scored 20 against Dallas on March 1. The 37-year-old is averaging 13.6 points on 44.6 percent shooting in his first season as a Laker.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Scores 13 points in return

    Anthony produced 13 points (5-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt) and four rebounds across 23 minutes during Saturday's 127-119 loss to the Wizards.

    Anthony missed the Lakers' previous contest due to a non-COVID illness, but the issue cost him only one game. The veteran forward led the team's bench with 13 points Saturday and knocked down half of his six three-point attempts, though Los Angeles was unable to pull out a win. Anthony has been the Lakers' top reserve this season with per-game averages of 13.7 points, 4.2 boards and 2.3 three-pointers.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Not on injury report

    Anthony (illness) isn't on the injury report for Saturday's game against the Wizards, Harrison Faigen of SBNation.com reports.

    Anthony missed Friday's game against the Raptors due to a non-COVID illness, but he should be back in action against Washington. He's averaged 13.6 points and 3.2 rebounds in 24.6 minutes per game across his last five appearances.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Out with illness

    Anthony has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Raptors due to a non-COVID illness, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.

    Anthony wasn't initially listed on the Lakers' injury report Friday, but he'll be unavailable against Toronto. Whether he'll be able to suit up Saturday against Washington remains to be seen. Stanley Johnson and Trevor Ariza should see additional run Friday.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Scores 16 points in loss

    Anthony provided 16 points (6-15 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 3-5 FT), three rebounds and one assist over 26 minutes during Wednesday's 124-104 loss to the Timberwolves.

    Anthony did his thing, scoring in double-digits for the 10th time in his last 11 games. Unfortunately, his peripheral production left a lot to be desired, as is par for the course for the veteran. Until Anthony Davis returns to the court, there is a pretty clear path to minutes for Anthony, making him a viable 12-team asset, albeit one with almost no upside.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Playing well since return

    Anthony put up 17 points (6-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 30 minutes off the bench Monday in the Lakers' 117-110 loss to the Spurs.

    Though Anthony's ability to overcome hamstring injury following the All-Star break has given the Lakers a much-needed secondary scorer while Anthony Davis (foot) remains out of the lineup, the future Hall of Famer's return hasn't meant much from a wins-and-losses perspective. Still, in his six games since returning, Anthony has reached double figures in the scoring column each time out, averaging 15.8 points per game. However, it's been his efficiency (52.3 percent from the field and 94.1 percent from the free-throw line) that's been a nice surprise, and his defensive numbers (1.2 blocks and 1.0 steals per game) are an added bonus. The consistent blocks production actually might be somewhat sustainable, given that the Lakers haven't leaned heavily on Dwight Howard or other traditional centers while Davis has been out and are instead comfortable with turning to Anthony and LeBron James (knee) as the last line of defense at the rim.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Posts 20 points in reserve role

    Anthony supplied 20 points (6-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), three rebounds, one assist, one block and three steals in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 109-104 loss to the Mavericks.

    If Anthony can stay healthy, he could prove to be the Lakers'missing link for success. The team is tinkering with several starting lineups since the departure of Anthony Davis, and it may only be a matter of time before Frank Vogel asks the veteran to turn it up down the stretch. He could be a valuable sleeper add off the waiver wire as the team enters a critical period in the season.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Puts up 13 points in blowout loss

    Anthony scored 13 points (4-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT) and added five rebounds, one assist and one block across 30 minutes Sunday in the Lakers' 123-95 loss to the Pelicans.

    After closing the Lakers' first-half schedule with five straight absences due to a hamstring injury, Anthony was cleared to return to action coming out of the All-Star break. He's proceeded to deliver averages of 15.5 points (on 47.8 percent shooting from the field), 5.0 rebounds and 2.5 three-pointers over 29.0 minutes in his first two games back, and those numbers should be relatively sustainable over the next few weeks. With Anthony Davis (foot) likely sidelined until at least late March and none of the Lakers' other frontcourt options brimming with upside, Anthony should get every opportunity to provide secondary offense behind LeBron James and Russell Westbrook.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Available Friday

    Anthony (hamstring) is available for Friday's game against the Clippers, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.

    After missing five games ahead of the All-Star break, Anthony will be back on the court as the Lakers resume play Friday. He won't have a minutes restriction against the Clippers, but coach Frank Vogel said that the team could monitor the length of each stint that the forward has on the floor. Since the start of the calendar year, Anthony has averaged 13.6 points and 3.8 rebounds in 24.5 minutes per game.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Expected to play Friday

    Coach Frank Vogel said Anthony (hamstring) is "expected" to play Friday against the Clippers, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    This doesn't come as a surprise, as the veteran forward is listed as probable, but it should still give fantasy managers confirmation that Anthony will be ready to go following a five-game absence heading into the All-Star break. Anthony is averaging 13.4 points and 4.2 rebounds in 26.5 minutes per game, but he may be limited during his first game action since Feb. 3.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Likely available Friday

    Anthony (hamstring) is probable for Friday's game against the Clippers, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Anthony was sidelined the final five games before the All-Star break by a strained right hamstring, but he practiced fully Thursday and should be back on the court Friday for the Lakers. He's averaged 13.4 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 26.5 minutes this season and should continue to operate as a bench piece.
