Hart supplied eight points (4-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt), four rebounds and one steal across 31 minutes in Thursday's 119-111 loss to the Timberwolves.
Hart wasn't very efficient on a per-minute basis in what was very likely his last start at point guard for the time being. The rookie is slated to give way to the returning Lonzo Ball (knee) following the All-Star break, which should push his minutes back down to the teens or low 20s and likely shift him to more of a reserve shooting guard role now that Isaiah Thomas is part of the point guard rotation. While his overall value will naturally take a hit due to that reduction in playing time, Hart will likely retain at least modest fantasy viability, especially in deeper formats.
Hart accounted for 15 points (5-6 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block across 31 minutes Wednesday in Los Angeles' loss to New Orleans.
Hart has emerged in February as an efficient scorer and, overall, as a useful piece for this young Lakers team. With Lonzo Ball (knee) still sidelined and Isaiah Thomas hitting the showers early after a spat with Pelicans guard Rajon Rondo, Hart continued to shoulder some of the offensive load without missing a step. As a fantasy option, Hart will have maximum value while Ball is on the mend, but he is one of the best rebounding wings in the league and the Lakers would be wise to continue giving him a healthy dose of minutes.
Hart tallied nine points (3-7 FG, 3-6 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist in 29 minutes during Saturday's 130-123 loss to Dallas.
Hart retained his role as the starting point-guard but saw a drop in his production as the team debuted Isaiah Thomas. Thomas played quite well despite only being with the team for a short period of time and he has a lot to prove to a lot of people. Lonzo Ball (knee) will also return in the next few games and Hart seems likely to be the odd man out. The team still has the incentive to give him court time as they look to see what they have but he is going to be more of a streaming option, especially once Ball makes his way back.
Hart produced 10 points (4-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt), eight rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block across 33 minutes in Thursday's 106-81 win over the Thunder.
Hart is now averaging 13.5 points, 11.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.3 steals across 34.5 minutes in four February contests. The rookie's outstanding shooting (63.3 percent) has allowed him to maximize what have been single-digit shot attempts in each of those games, and his work on the glass has been a rather unexpected and added bonus from the point guard position. Hart's surprising emergence adds even more intrigue to a Lakers backcourt that did see the departure of Jordan Clarkson at the trade deadline, but that also awaits the arrival of Isaiah Thomas in return. It remains to be seen if Hart will retain the starting point guard role while Lonzo Ball (knee) remains sidelined, and where exactly he'll slot into the backcourt once both Ball and Thomas are available.
Hart generated 15 points (5-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block across 31 minutes in Tuesday's 112-93 win over the Suns.
Hart continues to thrive in his starting opportunity while Lonzo Ball (knee) remains out, as he's now posted three straight double-doubles. Hart has shot a blistering 71.4 percent from the field during those contests, a tally includes an impressive 61.5 percent success rate from distance. Coupled with his production on the glass, Hart is rewarding savvy owners who nabbed him off the wire earlier in the season and those who've deployed him as a DFS play in recent games. Moreover, given Kentavious Caldwell-Pope's extensive shooting struggles at two-guard, it's plausible that Hart could retain a first-unit role at his expense when Ball returns to action at point guard.
