  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Listed as questionable

    Anthony (back) is questionable for Saturday's contest against the Nuggets, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    Anthony is in danger of missing his second straight game due to back soreness. If he's unable to suit up, Talen Horton-Tucker and Kent Bazemore are both candidates for increased roles once again.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Won't play Wednesday

    Anthony (back) won't play Wednesday against Sacramento, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Anthony will officially miss his first game of the season with back soreness, and the veteran likely picked up the injury during Sunday's loss to Memphis. With Anthony out, expect Talen Horton-Tucker and Kent Bazemore to pick up the vacated minutes. Anthony will have a few days to rest up before the Lakers' next contest Saturday at Denver.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Totals most points since November

    Anthony posted 24 points (9-15 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, two blocks and one steal across 28 minutes Tuesday in the Lakers' 132-123 win over the Rockets.

    Anthony has now turned in two fantasy-friendly outings in a row, as he followed up a 17-point, 11-rebound game Christmas Day against the Nets with another near double-double. After he also chipped in three blocks and two steals versus Brooklyn, Anthony once again provided some defensive stats Tuesday, though he historically hasn't been a huge contributor in either of those two categories. Still, while Anthony Davis (knee) is out indefinitely, Anthony should at least have some value as a streamer for points, three-pointers and rebounds.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Goes for 17 and 11 in loss

    Anthony ended Saturday's 122-115 loss to the Nets with 17 points (6-15 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists, three blocks and two steals over 39 minutes.

    While the Lakers' season continues to spiral toward a full-on disaster, Anthony has had some encouraging individual moments that have reminded fantasy managers why he was one of the league's most dominant offensive players for much of the last two decades. Anthony has cooled off considerably since a red-hot start to the season, but he's still plenty capable of catching fire from three on any given night. The veteran now has at least 15 points in 12 of his 34 appearances this season.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Thrives off bench Sunday

    Anthony posted 21 points (7-17 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist, two blocks and two steals across 30 minutes during Sunday's 115-110 loss to Chicago.

    Anthony has always been a gifted scorer and Sunday's game was another proof of what he can do when he's involved enough on offense, but unfortunately for him and for fantasy managers who drafted him, he hasn't been consistent with his game-to-game performances. Anthony has scored in double digits just twice over his last seven contests, and in fact, this was the first time he cracked the 20-point mark since early November.

  • Lakers' Carmelo Anthony: Will be available Tuesday

    Anthony (non-COVID illness) will be available for Tuesday's contest against the Celtics, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Anthony hasn't missed a game yet this season and it appears that trend will continue. In his first year with the Lakers, the veteran forward is averaging 14.3 points and 3.8 rebounds across 28.5 minutes per game.
