Labissiere compiled nine points (4-11 FG, 1-2 FT), 15 rebounds, one assist, and one block in 23 minutes during Thursday's 104-68 preseason victory over Maccabi.
Labissiere put together another nice all-around game Thursday, continuing to put his hand up for more minutes once the regular season rolls around. It is uncertain as to where exactly he fits in the rotation moving forward. He does have a somewhat fantasy-friendly game but has disappointed managers before. Those in deeper formats could take a chance on him but just don't get your hopes too high.
Labissiere ended with 10 points (2-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists, and one block in 17 minutes during Tuesday's 105-94 preseason loss to Denver.
Labissiere double-doubled in Tuesday's preseason loss, png in his claim for more minutes heading into the regular season. The backup rotations remain a little clouded but there is an opportunity for Labissiere should he choose to grab it. He is not worth a standard league roster spot but those in deeper formats could give him a look with a backend selection.
Labissiere is nursing an injured shoulder and it's not clear if he'll be available for the Blazers' first summer league game on Saturday, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.
Labissiere suffered the injury a few weeks back during a minicamp scrimmage. While it doesn't seem to be serious, it's possible he'll miss summer league action.
Labissiere tallied 29 points (12-17 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 15 rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block across 41 minutes in the Trail Blazers' 136-131 win over the Kings on Wednesday.
Labissiere drew the start against his old squad and played with a hearty dose of motivation. Essentially a forgotten man all season, the 2016 first-round pick parlayed fresh legs into a new career-high rebound total and the second-best scoring tally of his three NBA seasons. Despite the spectacular showing Wednesday, the 23-year-old appears likely to be left out of Portland's first-round playoff rotation.
Labissiere will start Wednesday's game against the Kings, Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports.
Labissiere will get his first start of the season Wednesday. The big man's played sparingly this year, averaging just 1.8 points and 1.3 rebounds across 6.5 minutes in 21 contests.
Labissiere amassed one rebound, one assist, and one steal in three minutes during Friday's 118-98 win over the Hawks.
Labissiere has played a combined seven minutes during the last two games. However, both were blowout victories, and Labissiere remains buried on the depth chart down low. As a result, he can likely be avoided across all fantasy formats.
Labissiere played the final 49 seconds of Wednesday's 129-107 win over the Warriors, grabbing a rebound and accruing no other statistics.
Labissiere was summoned from the bench in garbage time in his Portland debut and doesn't have a clear path to capturing meaningful minutes with the Trail Blazers the rest of the way. His outlook only got worse Wednesday, as it was reported earlier in the day that the Trail Blazers had agreed to a contract with Enes Kanter, who projects to be a fixture in the team's frontcourt rotation moving forward.
Labissiere is available to play during Sunday's game against the Mavericks, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.
Labissiere was acquired by Portland on Thursday and is reportedly finally available to play with his new team if called upon. The former Kentucky standout was posting rough numbers prior to being traded however (averaging just 2.8 points per game on 43 percent shooting). Labissiere will have to earn his way into the rotation as well due to a well-rounded Portland roster at the power forward and position spots.
The Kings traded Labissiere to the Trail Blazers on Thursday in exchange for Caleb Swanigan, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
It's a swap of two players on their rookie deals, neither of whom seemingly had a future in their respective organizations' rotation. Labissiere had appeared in just 13 games all season in the Kings' crowded frontcourt, averaging 2.8 points and 1.8 rebounds in 8.7 minutes. While the Trail Blazers don't have quite the glut of options at power forward or center as Sacramento, Labissiere may still be hard pressed to leapfrog Jake Layman or Zach Collins for minutes behind starters Al-Farouq Aminu and Jusuf Nurkic.
Labissiere (personal) isn't listed on the Kings' injury report ahead of Friday's game against the Grizzlies.
Labissiere was unavailable for the Kings' previous game Tuesday in Toronto while tending to a personal matter. His absence from the injury report indicates that Labissiere has joined the Kings in Memphis, though his availability hardly means that he'll dress for the contest. The third-year big man out of Kentucky has been outside of coach Dave Joerger's rotation throughout the season and has made just eight appearances in total since the beginning of November.
Labissiere is out for personal reasons Tuesday against the Raptors, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
Labissiere has struggled to find minutes this season, last playing five minutes on Jan. 7. As a result, his absence shouldn't drastically affect the team.
Labissiere (coach's decision) was inactive for Monday's 115-107 win over the Trail Blazers.
The Kings are overloaded on frontcourt options and haven't dealt with many long-term injuries at either power forward or center, leaving few opportunities available for Labissiere to pick up playing time. The fact that he wasn't even included among the Kings' eight available bench players Monday illustrates how far Labissiere has fallen in the organizational pecking order. He's seen the floor in just 11 of the Kings' 44 games this season, logging double-digit minutes on just two of his appearances.
Labissiere will be a healthy scratch for Monday's game against the Heat, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.
Labissiere finds himself as the odd man out of the Kings' frontcourt rotation with Kosta Koufos (hamstring) returning Monday. Although the Kings have been prioritizing the development of their young players -- including fellow center Harry Giles -- Labissiere has only appeared in three of the six games this year and averaged only 5.0 minutes and 1.7 points per tilt.
Labissiere posted 10 points (3-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds and two assists across 27 minutes during the Kings' 122-94 preseason loss to the Warriors on Friday.
Labissiere saw ample playing time and produced a solid line despite considerable struggles with his shot. The third-year big has the ability to back up both frontcourt positions, although that part of the roster is deeper than in past seasons with second overall pick Marvin Bagley, 2017 first-round pick Harry Giles and veterans Zach Randolph and Nemanja Bjelica among those jockeying for playing time.
Labissiere said earlier in the week that he's improved his training methods over the past few months and has turned in his "best offseason" of his basketball career, Kyle Ramos of the Kings' official site reports.
Labissiere ended his second NBA campaign in street clothes while managing an sprained left ankle, but it wasn't anything that dramatically delayed his preparation for the upcoming season. While it's good to hear that the 2016 first-round pick is seemingly motivated to improve after a so-so sophomore season, it's difficult to see his role growing much in 2018-19. In addition to selecting fellow big man Marvin Bagley with the No. 2 overall selection in June, the Kings are expected to give 2017 first-round pick Harry Giles consistent minutes in the frontcourt after Giles missed the entire 2017-18 season while recovering from knee surgery. Along with those two young cornerstones, Labissiere's playing time may be threatened by holdovers Willie Cauley-Stein, Zach Randolph and Kosta Koufos and offseason pickups Nemanja Bjelica and Deyonta Davis.
Labissiere averaged 8.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists across 60 games played with the Kings during the 2017-18 season.
Labissiere's points-per-game average was down from last year as he shot a career worst 44.8 percent from the floor, although his free-throw percentage increased by 10 percent. The former first-round pick out of Kentucky has one more deal left on his rookie contract at the price tag of around $1.5 million next season.
Labissiere (ankle) will remain sidelined for Wednesday's season finale against the Rockets, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.
Labissiere has missed the last three games with a sprained left ankle, and the Kings will err on the side of caution with their second year big man. Jakarr Sampson and Nigel Hayes figure to continue seeing increased run in his absence.
Labissiere (ankle) has been ruled out of Monday's game against the Spurs, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 in Sacramento reports.
Labissiere is nursing a sprained left ankle, and Monday will represent his third consecutive absence. He'll have one more opportunity to play -- Wednesday vs. Houston -- before the end of the season.
Labissiere (ankle) will not play in Friday's game against the Grizzlies, Jason Jones of The Sacramento Bee reports.
This will be Labissiere's second straight absence after the big man left Sunday's game against the Lakers with a sprained left ankle. With Zach Randolph's (personal) status still up in the air for Friday night, the Kings may once again have to utilize a smaller starting five with rookie Justin Jackson and Vince Carter in the frontcourt. However, given that Randolph would be playing limited minutes anyway, Nigel Hayes should also see a fair share of frontcourt minutes off the bench as well.
Labissiere (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Suns, Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports.
Labissiere was forced to leave Sunday's game early with a sprained left ankle and will subsequently be held out of Tuesday's tilt with the Suns. Along with Labissiere, Zach Randolph (personal) will also be out, which will force the Kings to go with a small lineup featuring Justin Jackson, Vince Carter and Willie Cauley-Stein in the frontcourt.
