Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: Out of lineup, season likely done
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's finale against the Magic, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

With the Pelicans mathematically eliminated from postseason contention, the team will roll with Frank Jackson as the starter. Coach Alvin Gentry also said Thursday that he'll likely rest Ball for the entire game, per Guillory, signaling the end of the season for the UCLA product.

Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: Scores 16 points against Kings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball registered 16 points (5-9 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, three rebounds and two blocks in 29 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Kings.

Ball was the only regular starter that was named in the starting lineup for Tuesday's contest, and the former Lakers guard delivered his first double-digit scoring performance in the bubble. Prior to this game he was averaging just 5.7 points while shooting 26 percent from the field, so Ball perhaps got an extended run on the court to see if he could get out of the slump before the Pelicans' season ended next Thursday against the Magic.

Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: Rough shooting game in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball finished with five points (2-10 FG, 0-4 3PT, 1-1 FT), 10 assists, five rebounds and two blocks in Sunday's loss to San Antonio.

Ball added some decent complementary numbers, but he once again struggled from the field, as has been the case for most of the last six games. Since seeding play began, Ball is just 5-of-26 from beyond the arc.

Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: Posts 11 dimes in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball posted nine points (4-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt), 11 assists, two rebounds, one steal and one block in 31 minutes during Thursday's 140-125 loss to the Kings.

Ball has yet to crack double-digit points in the bubble, but he set restart highs in points and assists. The performance was Ball's eighth this season with at least 11 dimes. His season high of 15 was set Jan. 26 against the Celtics.

Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: Scores 12 to go with full line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball posted 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-7 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block in 23 minutes during Monday's 124-103 scrimmage win over the Bucks.

Ball contributed across every category, making an impact on both ends of the court in the team's final scrimmage. He's abysmal when it comes to attacking the basket in half-court settings and rarely earns trips to the free-throw line, but even so, Ball has become one of the league's more well-rounded players.

Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: Continues to shoot well
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball had 18 points (7-13 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 0-1 FT), eight assists, five rebounds and two steals in Sunday's win over Minnesota.

It was another strong all-around effort for Ball, who was coming off of a 16-point, nine-rebound, eight assist effort in Friday's win over Miami. Ball's four three-pointers Sunday give him 21 over the last four contests.

Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: Well-rounded in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball supplied 16 points (6-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, eight assists, a steal and a block in 36 minutes Friday during the Pelicans' 110-104 win versus the Heat.

Ball has posted at least five assists and five rebounds in seven straight games. He has also gotten hot from distance, connecting on 17 of his last 28 three-point tries. Ball is averaging 23.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, 7.7 assists and 2.7 steals through four games in March.

Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: Splendid contributions Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball ended with 25 points (9-19 FG, 7-11 3Pt), 11 rebounds, six assists, two steals and one block in 40 minutes during Wednesday's 127-123 loss to the Mavericks.

Ball matched his career-high with seven triples, once again flaunting his fantasy-friendly game. The Pelicans are pushing for a playoff spot, and Ball is going to be getting heavy minutes, at least for the foreseeable future. Over the past month, Ball is flirting with first-round value, and it appears he is finally beginning to put things together alongside a number of players who can be considered ball-dominant.

Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: Stellar two-way performance in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball accumulated 26 points (9-12 FG, 7-10 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight assists, five rebounds, three steals and one block across 33 minutes during Tuesday's 139-134 loss to the Timberwolves.

Ball tied his season-high seven made threes in the fast-paced contest, and he was also a force defensively. With the performance, he also became just one of 14 players this season to post a game with at least 26 points, eight assists, three steals and one block. Over Ball's past 10 outings, he's averaging 12.6 points, 8.5 assists, 5.8 rebounds and 2.0 steals in 34.5 minutes. Plus, he's shot 42.9 percent from distance.

Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: Nears triple-double against Lakers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball put up 19 points (7-15 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 4-6 FT), nine assists, nine rebounds, three steals and one block in 38 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Lakers.

Although Ball has been outside of the top 80 on the season in nine-category leagues, he's been a top 50 asset over the last two months after seeing a slight bump in play time, and increasing his assist output. He's not an efficient scorer, shooting just 39.9 percent from the field, and 58.1 percent from the line on the season, but the 22-year old is a beast at accumulating counting stats. As the Pelicans hunt for a playoff spot. Ball's role should be steady and reliable down the stretch.

Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: Jack of all trades in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball totaled five points (1-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 12 assists, six rebounds, four steals and two blocks in 35 minutes during Friday's 116-104 victory over Cleveland.

Ball's shooting struggles continued Friday; however, he was able to contribute across the board to round out a solid performance. He is having the best season of his career, putting up top-70 numbers thus far. He certainly has a couple of glaring holes in his fantasy game, not the least of which is his free throw efficiency. With that being said, he barely gets to the line and so the impact is typically minimal. His playing time is all but assured moving forward and given the Pelicans likely push for the playoffs, he should continue to be a solid mid-round option the rest of the way.

Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: Versatile stat line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball finished with 10 points (4-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt), eight rebounds and eight assists in 31 minutes during the Pelicans' 118-109 loss to the Lakers on Tuesday.

Ball took a hard fall to the floor after being emphatically blocked by Alex Caruso in the fourth quarter. However, he responded in a big way by nailing a transition three on the next possession. Racking up 16 cumulative assists and rebounds still represented the meat of Ball's output --- a figure that is attainable on a nightly basis for Ball in this role.

Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: Four steals in easy victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball posted two points (1-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt), nine assists, six rebounds and four steals across 27 minutes during Sunday's 115-101 victory over the Warriors.

Ball couldn't find his shot, but he was able to get his teammates involved and be active on defense. Sunday's effort marked the third time in Ball's career that he's posted at least nine assists, six rebounds and four steals. Across eight February contests, he's averaging 10.9 points, 7.5 assists, 6.9 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.0 blocks in 35.5 minutes. He's also hitting 2.3 threes per contest at 39.1 percent his month.

Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: Dishes out seven assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball registered 15 points (6-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt), seven assists, four rebounds and one steal in 40 minutes during Friday's 128-115 win at Portland.

Ball's scoring numbers haven't been very impressive, and he has topped the 15-point plateau just twice in his last 10 games, but he makes up for it with great passing numbers. The former Laker has dished out at least five dimes in five straight contests and continues to make an impact as a playmaking threat, averaging 8.1 assists per game in his last 10 games.

Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: Scores 16 points on five threes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball put up 16 points (5-9 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, five assists and two blocks in 35 minutes during Thursday's 123-118 loss to the Thunder.

Entering this game, Ball had posted double-digit assists in two out of his last three outings. He couldn't reach the double-figure mark this time but still produced a strong fantasy line with good counting stats while shooting 55.6 percent from the field, 62.5 percent from three and swishing his lone free-throw attempt. Ball has been playing at a top-40 level over the last two weeks, going for 12.7 points, 7.4 assists, 7.3 rebounds, 2.9 threes, 1.3 steals and 1.0 blocks per game while shooting 50.0 percent from the field and 100 percent from the line during that span. The only downside is the 4.0 turnovers per game. After getting off to a somewhat slow start to the season, Ball has really found his rhythm on this Pelicans team as of late.

Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: Fills stat sheet in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball recorded nine points (4-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt), 10 assists, six rebounds, one steal and one block in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 138-117 win over the Blazers.

Ball scored in double figures during 10 straight games from Dec. 25 to Jan. 13 and while his scoring numbers have been inconsistent since then, he seems to be turning things around with double-digit scoring efforts in four of his last six contests. That said, Ball offers value in other areas of the game as well to make up for his lack of scoring consistency. He is averaging 7.8 assists, 7.5 rebounds and a combined 2.3 steals/blocks per game during that aforementioned six-game stretch.

Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: Nearly double-doubles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball had nine points (3-5 FG, 3-5 3Pt), 10 assists, three rebounds, three blocks and a steal in 33 minutes Thursday night during the Pelicans' win over the Bulls.

Ball was the only Pelican player to log more than 26 minutes in the contest, and he responded with a credible performance. His versatility is well-known, but owners still looking for consistency from Ball haven't seen it yet. Thursday's line resembles expected output from Ball were that to be his everyday role.

Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: Double-double in Tuesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball scored 11 points (4-12 FG, 3-10 3Pt) while adding 14 rebounds, three assists and a block in 39 minutes during Tuesday's 120-108 loss to the Bucks.

The assists were his lowest total since Dec. 28, but Ball still delivered a solid fantasy line. With Zion Williamson now healthy, the Pelicans' offense is finally approaching its full capabilities, and Ball's role as distributor is on the rise -- in seven games with Zion in the lineup, the third-year point guard is averaging 10.9 points, 8.6 assists, 8.1 boards, 2.7 threes, 1.4 steals and 0.9 blocks.

Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: One dime shy of triple-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball produced 10 points (3-7 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, nine assists, three steals and two blocks in 37 minutes during Sunday's 117-109 loss to the Rockets.

Ball finished one assist shy of a triple-double while filling up the stat sheet and contributing across every category. He continues to display excellent chemistry with rookie phenom Zion Williamson, and oddly enough the team's last meeting against Houston (Dec. 29) happens to be the same date that Ball began his recent surge.

Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: Fills stat sheet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball contributed 19 points (7-10 FG, 5-7 3Pt), eight assists, six rebounds and one steal in 33 minutes during Friday's 139-111 win over the Grizzlies.

Ball has scored in double figures just twice during his last six outings, but he is doing enough in other areas of the game to supplement that lack of scoring -- he has dished out five or more dimes in every single game over that span. The former Laker is averaging 10.5 points, 8.8 assists, 6.8 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game during that six-game stretch.
