  • Lakers' Kentavious Caldwell-Pope: Scores 25 points in Sunday's loss

    Caldwell-Pope contributed 25 points (9-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, five assists, and one steal in 27 minutes during Sunday's 128-110 loss to the Wizards.

    Caldwell-Pope accumulated season highs in scoring, rebounding, and assists while sinking four threes for the second time in the last five games. Caldwell-Pope continues to earn more minutes of late with Brandon Ingram (ankle) sidelined, though the latter could potentially return for Friday's matchup with the Pelicans. Caldwell-Pope's name has been mentioned in trade rumors, and while he'd have to sign off any deal, that's probably the best thing that could happen to him from a fantasy perspective.

  • Lakers' Tyson Chandler: Grabs seven boards in Sunday's loss

    Chandler chipped in two points (1-3 FG), seven rebounds, two steals, and one block in 20 minutes during Sunday's 128-110 loss to the Wizards.

    Chandler drew the start in place of JaVale McGee (illness). However, the veteran big man struggled to make much of an impact and ended up logging his usual load of minutes regardless. Chandler's presence has certainly been felt by the team, especially defensively, but he's only valuable in the deepest leagues.

  • Lakers' Tyson Chandler: Will start Sunday

    Chandler will draw a spot start Sunday against the Wizards.

    With JaVale McGee out due to flu-like symptoms, Chandler will get the nod at center and is in line to see an increase in playing time. Sunday will mark his first start of the 2018-2019 season, although he'll fall back into his usual bench role when McGree returns to health.

  • Lakers' JaVale McGee: Ruled out Sunday

    McGee (illness) will not play in Sunday's game against the Wizards, Kyle Goon of the Southern California News Group reports.

    McGee was considered probable after being excused from a team film session Sunday morning with flu-like symptoms, but it has now been declared as something that the big man will not be able to play through. Tyson Chandler will get the start at center, while Ivica Zubac could end up seeing some minutes in relief. The Lakers could also be more inclined to use smaller lineups in McGee's absence.

  • Lakers' JaVale McGee: Probable with illness

    McGee is dealing with the flu but is still expected to play in Sunday's game against the Wizards, Kyle Goon of the Southern California News Group reports.

    It doesn't look like the symptoms McGee is fighting through are that serious, as it would be a surprise at this point if the big man was inactive. Look for his status to be confirmed once tip-off draws closer.

  • Lakers' Moritz Wagner: Plays seven minutes in blowout win

    Wagner had five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and three rebounds in seven minutes during Saturday's 128-100 win over the Hornets.

    Wagner made his sixth appearance of the season, as the blowout nature of the game allowed coach Luke Walton to clear his bench. Back in the offseason there was a tiny sliver of hope that Wagner could potentially earn a small role right away as a rookie thanks to his shooting ability, but the acquisition of veteran center Tyson Chandler has pushed Ivica Zubac and Wagner into irrelevance.

  • Lakers' Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk: Scores 12 points in 18 minutes

    Mykhailiuk managed 12 points (4-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four assists, and one rebound in 18 minutes during Saturday's 128-100 win over the Hornets.

    Mykhailiuk has earned double-digit minutes in five of the first seven December games, and he contributed career highs in scoring and assists in this one. It's also the second time in the last four games that Mykhailiuk has canned three three-pointers. The absence of Brandon Ingram (ankle), who is expected to miss at least the next two games, is providing Mykhailiuk an opportunity and he's making the most of it.

  • Lakers' Ivica Zubac: Plays 12 minutes in Saturday's win

    Zubac collected six points (3-4 FG) and one rebound in 12 minutes during Saturday's 128-100 win over the Hornets.

    Zubac made his ninth appearance of the season and earned double-digit minutes for the first time since doing so in back-to-back bouts on Nov. 3 and Nov. 4. With JaVale McGee holding down the fort as the starting center and Tyson Chandler eating up most of the playing time behind McGee, Zubac is an afterthought.

  • Lakers' Lonzo Ball: Triple-double, five steals in win

    Ball contributed 16 points (7-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt), 10 rebounds, 10 assists, five steals, and one block in 35 minutes during Saturday's 128-100 win over the Hornets.

    Ball recorded his first triple-double of the season while posting a season high scoring total and matching season highs in rebounds and steals. Ball has reached double figures in boards and dimes three times each through 29 appearances, and while his per-game averages are down across the board compared to last season, the sophomore is showing signs of promise and seems to be slowly finding his niche offensively alongside LeBron James.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Triple-double in Saturday's win

    James produced 24 points (7-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 8-12 FT), 12 rebounds, 11 assists, and one steal in 30 minutes during Saturday's 128-100 win over the Hornets.

    James recorded his second triple-double of the season while playing 30 minutes or less for the fifth time through 29 appearances. James is averaging a career low minutes average and is guilty of coasting on the defensive end more than occasionally, but he is sinking a career-high 2.2 three-pointers game and is clearly still one of the top options across all formats.

  • Lakers' JaVale McGee: Scores 19 points in 18 minutes

    McGee finished with 19 points (9-10 FG, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, three blocks, and one steal in 18 minutes during Saturday's 128-100 win over the Hornets.

    McGee shook off an illness to deliver a dominant performance on both ends. He continues to clean up offensively, screening and diving into the paint for easy buckets galore. In fact, if the season ended today he'd have a career-best scoring average (11.8) while connecting on 62.6 percent of his field-goal attempts. Meanwhile, McGee is also managing career-high per-game averages of 2.6 blocks, 0.8 steals, and 0.8 assists through 29 appearances.

  • Lakers' JaVale McGee: Listed as starter

    McGee (illness) is listed as the starter ahead of Saturday's game against the Hornets.

    McGee was a game-time call due to an illness, but he'll give it a go. It's possible his minutes won't be as high as usual, which could prompt Tyson Chandler to see more time.
