Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Double-double as starter
Kuzma notched 25 points (10-20 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 1-3 FT), 13 rebounds, three assists and a steal across 34 minutes in Wednesday's loss at Sacramento.
Kuzma started for the first time since Feb. 22 and thrived, posting his second straight double-double while also recording a season-high mark of 25 points. Kuzma's role moving forward will be determined by whether LeBron James (ankle) returns to the lineup or not, but he has proven his worth as a reliable scoring asset. His biggest problem, however, lies on the lack of consistency.... See More ... See Less
Lakers' Dennis Schroder: One assist shy of double-double
Schroder delivered 28 points (11-20 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), nine assists, a rebound, a steal and a block across 34 minutes in Wednesday's loss against the Kings.
The Lakers didn't have LeBron James (ankle) and Anthony Davis (calf), and this result in Schroder posting a season-high 20 shots from the field while also scoring a season-best 28 points. Expect Schroder to see a slight uptick in his numbers across the board if both Davis and James are forced to miss more games.... See More ... See Less
Lakers' Montrezl Harrell: Delivers double-double off bench
Harrell notched 26 points (13-22 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 12 rebounds, an assist and a block across 33 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's loss against the Kings.
Harrell contributed 26 points for the second time over his last six appearances and has scored 15-plus points four times in that stretch. His scoring numbers might be inconsistent off the bench, but Harrell has a clear role and consistent playing time so he should remain a reliable fantasy asset in most formats even if he has an off night from time to time. He is averaging 14.6 points per game on 58.7 percent shooting over his last 10 outings, however, so he's trending in the right direction.... See More ... See Less
