Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Another poor performance Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuzma totaled 10 points (4-11 FG, 2-7 3Pt), one assist and one steal in 19 minutes during Thursday's 114-108 victory over Denver.

Kuzma continues to underwhelm on both ends of the floor with what can only be described as another mediocre performance. Across his 15 playoff games, Kuzma has scored in excess of 15 points only twice, adding a combined 13 assists, five steals and five blocks. Apart from doing his best Doug McDermott impersonation, Kuzma is giving us no reason to think he will be a reliable fantasy asset anytime soon.

Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Posts 13 points in Game 2 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuzma notched 13 points (6-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt), six rebounds, a steal and a block in 21 minutes off the bench during Sunday's Game 2 win over the Rockets.

Kuzma was coming off back-to-back eight-point performances and, even though a 13-point outing doesn't scream massive improvement, he did take a step forward in terms of efficiency -- he missed just one shot all night long. The Lakers need Kuzma to become a reliable scoring threat regardless of his role and that hasn't been the case in the current playoff run, where he has scored topped the 15-point plateau just once while notching fewer than 10 points four times.

Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Needs to be better moving forward
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuzma ended with just eight points (3-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds and one assist in 28 minutes during Friday's 112-97 Game 1 loss to the Rockets.

Kuzma offered next to nothing in Friday's loss, highlighting the Lakers' bench struggles. With Anthony Davis and LeBron James the focus of basically the entire Rockets defense, Kuzma needs to be doing more if the Lakers are to proceed, especially on the offensive end.

Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Scores 18 off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuzma scored 18 points (6-12 FG, 5-9 3PT, 1-1 FT) in Monday's Game 4 win over Portland.

Kuzma accounted for five of the Lakers' 17 three-pointers on a night when the offense was rolling for a full 48 minutes. The third-year forward also added two rebounds and two assists in 22 minutes.

Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Scores 14 in reserve role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuzma netted 14 points (5-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds and a blocked shot across 30 minutes in Tuesday's 100-93 loss to the Trail Blazers in the first round of the NBA playoffs.

The Lakers ranked dead last in offensive efficiency during the seeding games, but Kuzma was reasonably consistent in providing a bit of spark off the bench. He averaged 15.4 points and 4.4 rebounds over seven games played in the bubble and averaged 28 minutes on the floor in those contests.

Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Out for seeding finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuzma is out for Thursday's contest against the Kings, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

Kuzma wasn't previously on the injury report, so he's presumably getting the day off for rest. In his stead, Talen Horton-Tucker should see plenty of extra minutes at forward considering he's drawing a start alongside Markieff Morris.

Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Buries game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuzma scored 25 points (11-16 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 0-0 FT) and added six rebounds, three assists and two steals in 33 minutes during Monday's 124-121 win over Denver.

Kuzma led the team in field goals on the evening but none was bigger than the three he sank with 0.4 seconds remaining that proved to be the difference. The 25-year-old started his second game in his last three and consequently turned in his second 20-point effort as a result. On the year, he's averaging 12.6 points and 4.5 rebounds per contest.

Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuzma will enter the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the Nuggets, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.

Kuzma will replace Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (ankle) on the wing. He has averaged 20.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists across 32.3 minutes in eight starts this season.

Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Back to bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuzma will come off the bench Saturday against the Pacers, Michael Gallagher of Establish the Run NBA reports.

With the Lakers close to full health, Kuzma will resume his sixth-man role off the bench. In the bubble, he's averaging 14.4 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 28.4 minutes.

Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Scores team-high 21 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuzma recorded 21 points (8-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-7 FT), five rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocked shots across 29 minutes in Thursday's 113-97 loss to the Rockets.

With LeBron James (groin) and Alex Caruso (neck) inactive, the Lakers stitched a lineup together from an already-thin roster. Kuzma played well given his starting opportunity, but there's obvious concern about the team's well-being as a whole. Out of 22 teams in the bubble, the Lakers rank dead-last in offensive efficiency and have only won one game in Orlando. Rumors are circulating about James and Davis' reduced usage in the upcoming seeding games, and that makes Kuzma an intriguing DFS option until the playoffs begin.

Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuzma is in the starting lineup for Thursday's matchup against Houston, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

LeBron James is inactive with a minor groin injury, so Kuzma will garner his first start in the NBA bubble and likely see an increased role. The Utah product is averaging 12.8 points along with 3.8 rebounds through four games in Orlando.

Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Limited off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuzma scored nine points (3-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go along with one rebound and one assist in 25 minutes off the bench during Monday's 116-108 win over the Jazz.

Kuzma was coming off back-to-back 16-point performances, but he wasn't able to repeat that against the Jazz. That ended a streak of three straight double-digit performances for the 25-year-old, who has been bothered by an ankle injury since the league restarted.

Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Probable vs. Jazz
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuzma (ankle) is considered probable for Monday's game against Utah.

For the third straight game, Kuzma is listed as probable with the ankle issue, but there's little reason to believe his status is in any jeopardy.

Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Scores 16 points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuzma tallied 16 points (5-13 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one block in 28 minutes during Saturday's 107-92 loss to the Raptors.

Kuzma has emerged as the Lakers' third scoring option through two games in Orlando, but he wasn't overly efficient Saturday, hitting just five of his 13 attempts.

Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Good to go Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuzma (ankle) will play Saturday against the Raptors, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.

Kuzma is fighting through an ankle injury, but he'll play in the Lakers' second bubble game. He wasn't hampered in the opener against the Clippers, posting 16 points on eight shots, seven rebounds, two assists and one block in 32 minutes.

Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Probable Saturday vs. Raptors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuzma (ankle) is probable for Saturday's contest against the Raptors.

Kuzma fought through the injury during the opener to post 16 points, seven rebounds, two assists and one block in 32 minutes against the Clippers. As a result, we shouldn't expect him to be slowed down much by the injury against Toronto.

Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Manages 16 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuzma (ankle) scored 16 points while adding seven rebounds, two assists and one block in 32 minutes during Thursday's 103-101 win over the Clippers.

Kuzma was initially listed as probable for Thursday's game due to a right ankle sprain, but he ultimately handled more minutes than he had in the last four games prior to the season's hiatus. He'll remain in his usual role as the Lakers' first forward off the bench during Saturday's tilt against the Raptors.

Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Listed as probable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuzma is listed as probable with a right ankle sprain on the Lakers' official injury report ahead of Thursday's game against the Clippers.

The issue doesn't look to be anything of great concern, and the expectation is that Kuzma will be available in full capacity Thursday night.

Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Shakes off knee issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuzma was a full participant in Tuesday's practice after sitting out Monday's exhibition win over the Wizards with an ankle injury, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.

Kuzma's return to full activity suggests that his injury is minor, and the Lakers' decision to hold him out Monday was precautionary. Expect Kuzma to be ready to fill his normal role as the first forward off the bench Thursday, when the Lakers resume their regular season with a seeding game versus the Clippers.

Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Racks up 25 points efficiently
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuzma collected 25 points (10-13 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 0-1 FT), seven rebounds and one assist in 30 minutes during Saturday's 119-112 win over the Magic.

Kuzma couldn't be contained in this one, and he paced the team in scoring, threes and minutes played. Anthony Davis exited after being poked in the eye and is listed as day-to-day going forward. If Davis misses any time, Kuzma can be expected to try to step up and do his best to fill the void from scoring and rebounding perspectives.
