  • Lakers' Michael Beasley: Returns to practice

    Beasley (personal) returned to practice Tuesday, Kyle Goon of the Southern California News Group reports.

    Beasley is back with the Lakers after stepping away from the team over the weekend to tend to a personal matter. He's appeared in just three games this season, totaling three points and three rebounds across 10 minutes, leaving him off the fantasy radar for the time being.

  • Lakers' Lance Stephenson: Contributes offensively off bench in win

    Stephenson produced 11 points (3-7 FG, 3-5 Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound, one block and one steal across 15 minutes in the Lakers' 107-106 win over the Hawks on Sunday.

    Stephenson mustered his best scoring total since Oct. 29 while draining a season high in threes. The nine-year veteran's minutes have been stuck in the teens in six of his last seven games, putting a cap on his overall production. Stephenson is undoubtedly capable of strong scoring and rebounding contributions whenever he has enough playing time, but the uncertainty on that front limits his current fantasy viability to deeper formats and as a DFS dart throw.

  • Lakers' Brandon Ingram: Sees downturn in production Sunday

    Ingram posted 10 points (3-8 FG, 4-6 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one block across 29 minutes in the Lakes' 107-106 win over the Hawks on Sunday.

    Ingram struggled from the field for the second straight game, although unlike Saturday against the Kings, he wasn't able to supplement his stat line with strong production elsewhere. The 21-year-old has drained just eight of his 25 attempts over the last pair of contests, and he added to his problems Sunday with six turnovers as well. Ingram will look to bounce back to his usual numbers against the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.

  • Lakers' Lonzo Ball: Full stat line in narrow win

    Ball totaled eight points (2-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 assists, six rebounds, one steal and one block across 27 minutes in the Lakers' 107-106 win over the Hawks on Sunday.

    Ball was minimally involved on the offensive end, but he was excellent as a facilitator and remained active on the boards as well. The second-year point guard's assist total was a season high, while his scoring total, modest as it was, was his second highest of November thus far. Ball's shooting continues to be as spotty as ever, but his production in other categories allows him to remain viable from a fantasy perspective on nights when he produces an offensive clunker,

  • Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Solid on boards in win

    Kuzma supplied 18 points (8-18 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and two steals across 32 minutes in the Lakers' 107-106 win over the Hawks on Sunday.

    Kuzma couldn't quite drain a shot attempt in the closing seconds that would have given the Lakers a lead, but LeBron James was there to rebound and dunk it in for what would turn out to be the game-winning bucket. That misfire aside, it was another strong effort for Kuzma, who's shooting an even 50.0 percent over his first five November games and has scored between 18 and 24 points in three of his last four contests. The 23-year-old was particularly active on the boards Sunday as well, with his rebounding total equaling a season high.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Team-high scoring total in win

    James mustered 26 points (10-20 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 3-7 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and two steals across 34 minutes in the Lakers' 107-106 win over the Hawks on Sunday.

    Unsurprisingly, James played an integral role in the victory, but not before falling short in a key moment. The future Hall of Famer missed a pair of late free throws, but he was able to execute a dunk off a subsequent Kyle Kuzma miss after the Lakers had been able to retain possession following his second misfire. That basket with 15 seconds remaining gave the Lakers a lead they'd hold when Tyson Chandler blocked Trae Young's subsequent layup attempt. James' scoring total was a team high, a figure he generated by shooting at least 50.0 percent for the third time in the last four games. The 33-year-old also continues to display unprecedented aggressiveness from behind the arc, as he's put up nine long-distance shots twice in the last three games and is now averaging a career-high 5.8 three-point attempts per contest.

  • Lakers' Michael Beasley: Not available Sunday

    Beasley left the arena to attend to a personal issue prior to Sunday's game against Atlanta, Bill Oram of The Athletic reports.

    Beasley hasn't taken the court since Oct. 25, and he's missed the previous four games with a family matter. He'll be a game-time decision for Wednesday's tilt against Portland.

  • Lakers' Tyson Chandler: Grabs team-high 12 rebounds Saturday

    Chandler registered three points (1-2 FG, 1-4 FT), 12 rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot in 23 minutes during Saturday's 101-86 win over the Kings.

    Chandler's addition spells terrible news for JaVale McGee, who looked like a fantasy darling until Chandler's signing. Coach Luke Walton has already expressed his desire to give McGee and Chandler equal time, which diminishes both of their values. While they will both still produce some decent rebound totals, a wait-and-see approach to Chandler is best until it's determined exactly how much of McGee's production will be absorbed.

  • Lakers' Lonzo Ball: Logs dreadful shooting night Saturday

    Ball posted four points (2-10 FG, 0-6 3Pt), four assists, four steals, three rebounds and a blocked shot across 19 minutes in Saturday's 101-86 win over the Kings.

    Ball was ice-cold on Saturday, as he made only 20 percent of his shots and couldn't connect on any of his 3 -point attempts. He eventually was replaced by Rajon Rondo and rarely saw the floor after that. Ball tweaked his ankle in practice but was good to go for Saturday'a game - a connection between his poor play and the injury is possible but unlikely. Ball can be prone to some poor shooting performances, but his assist and steal totals can usually save his stat line. Ball's night was so poor; even four steals couldn't salvage his night.

  • Lakers' JaVale McGee: Contributes 10 points, eight rebounds Saturday

    McGee posted 10 points (5-6 FG), eight rebounds, two blocked shots and a steal across 22 minutes in Saturday's 101-86 win over the Kings.

    Unfortunately, what's good for the Lakers isn't necessarily great for McGee's fantasy production. The addition of Tyson Chandler has eaten into McGee's totals but has provided a solid one-two punch inside that the Lakers have lacked. The residual effect will no doubt assist the rest of the team, but not McGee. Chandler is also arguably the better defensive player, and his presence should be a cause for concern for McGee owners moving forward.
