Lopez managed six points (2-5 FG, 2-5 3Pt), two rebounds and one block across 26 minutes during Thursday's 119-111 loss to host Minnesota.
For as big as Lopez is, he only hauled in two rebounds and all of his shot attempts Thursday came from behind the arc. He has occasionally produced scoring games past the 20-point mark this season, but for most of the time, Lopez is lingering in the single digits. This season, the 7-0 center has seen steady declines in minutes, points, free-throw attempts and rebounds as the Lakers try to utilize their younger players.
Lopez totaled nine points (4-14 FG, 0-4 3Pt 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and one block across 24 minutes in Thursday's 106-81 win over the Thunder.
Lopez's struggles from the field prevented a bigger night, but he helped offset his offensive downturn with his best effort on the glass since Nov. 17. The veteran big man's playing time has encouragingly seen a boost in four February contests, which has helped lead to solid averages of 15.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.5 blocks across 27.5 minutes during that stretch. The 29-year-old is certainly capable of offering fantasy owners plenty in scoring, field-goal percentage and three-point percentage if given sufficient opportunity, so Lopez's minutes particularly bear monitoring moving forward.
Lopez tallied 12 points (4-6 FG, 4-6 3Pt), four rebounds and one block across 23 minutes in Tuesday's 112-93 win over the Suns.
Lopez's offensive surge continued Tuesday, albeit in slightly more modest fashion than in the first two games of February. The veteran big man had posted 19 and 20 points, respectively, in those contests, but it's worth noting that his effort against the Suns was actually the most efficient of the three from a shooting perspective. Lopez's 66.7 percent success rate from the field versus Phoenix was actually his best since Jan. 9, and given the hot hand he displayed, it's likely he'd have matched or exceeded his scoring from the prior two games had he come closer to the double-digit shot attempts he'd taken in those contests. Lopez will look to continue building on his strong start to February against the Thunder on Thursday.
Lopez had 20 points (8-18 FG, 4-9 3Pt), five rebounds, five assists and one block in 35 minutes during Sunday's 108-104 victory over Oklahoma City.
Lopez has come to life in the last two games, giving patient owners what they had been hoping for the entire season. In fact, the 35 minutes were a season-high for Lopez while the 20 points were his highest since back on November 19. The frontcourt rotation is about as unpredictable as any teams in the league and Lopez could very well go back to a 15-minute role in the next game. There is a chance the Lakers move some of their players which could have any number of effects on Lopez and if he is on your waivers he could be worth stashing for the next few days to see how things play out.
Lopez scored 19 points (8-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt) while adding three rebounds and three blocks in 28 minutes during Friday's 102-99 win over the Nets.
It was a solid revenge game for Lopez, who spent the first nine seasons of his career in a Nets uniform. The veteran center has seen his rebounding completely bottom out in 2017-18 -- he's managed to record only six rebounds in his last three games -- as coach Luke Walton prefers to use him away from the basket to spread the floor, but his ability to contribute in both blocks and three-pointers has allowed him to retain some fantasy value in deeper roto formats.
