McKinnie's role in the rotation has been spotty all season. If he's out for an extended period of time, it won't affect fantasy.
McKinnie totaled 10 points (4-8 FG, 1-1 FT, 1-3 3Pt), five rebounds and two steals in 17 minutes during Wednesday's 124-122 win over the Rockets.
The Lakers were without guards Dennis Schroder (Covid-19) and Alex Caruso (foot) Wednesday, which allowed McKinnie to see some extended playing time. The 28-year-old made the most of his opportunity by providing an efficient shooting night. Over the last month, McKinnie has proven valuable in this exact spot, scoring nine-plus points in his last four contests where he has seen at least 10-plus minutes.
McKinnie tallied 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt), two rebounds and one steal across 16 minutes Thursday in the Lakers' 121-113 loss to the Celtics.
The scoring total was one point off a season high for McKinnie, who took on an expanded role off the bench with all of LeBron James (knee), Anthony Davis (calf), Andre Drummond (toe), Markieff Morris (ankle) and Jared Dudley (knee) sidelined. All of Davis, Drummond and Morris appear likely to return to the lineup within the next week, so McKinnie could find himself out of the rotation once the Lakers have more frontcourt options available.

McKinnie missed Monday's game due to health and safety protocols, but considering he has been upgraded to questionable for Tuesday's contest, it's likely he did not test positive for COVID-19. The 28-year-old could see action off the bench Tuesday while the team remains banged up.
McKinnie (health and safety protocols) will be unavailable for Monday's game against the Knicks, Brad Turner of the LA Times reports.
It's unclear if McKinnie actually tested positive for the virus, but either way he figures to miss at least a few games while passing through the league's COVID-19 protocols.

McKinnie recorded four points (2-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and one rebound during Thursday's loss to Miami.

McKinnie has been traded to the Lakers in exchange for JaVale McGee, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
McKinnie, as well as Jordan Bell, are heading to the Lakers as part of the reported McGee deal. McKinnie has seen limited action in the league over the past two seasons, averaging just 4.6 points and 2.8 rebounds with the Cavs in 2019-20. However, the forward, who's on a team-friendly contract, could provide experience off the bench if the Lakers choose to keep him.

McKinnie played for the first time in the second half after he had been sidelined since the Cavaliers' final game before the All-Star break while contending with plantar fasciitis. It's worth noting that the Cavaliers were without six players due to injury for the contest, so McKinnie could fade into a smaller role once the likes of Andre Drummond (calf), Darius Garland (groin) and Kevin Porter (concussion) are all back in action.
