  • Lakers' LeBron James: Subdued effort in loss Saturday

    James totaled 22 points (8-19 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven assists, four rebounds, and one block in 25 minutes during Saturday's 130-117 loss to the Magic.

    James played just 25 minutes Saturday in what can only be described as a disappointing team effort. James has been spectacular for the Lakers this season and nights like this happen to even the greatest of players. The Lakers will travel to Miami on Sunday to face the Heat on the second night of a back-to-back. Look for James to right the ship as the Lakers push for their ninth win of the season.

  • Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Scores just eight points in loss

    Kuzma had just eight points (3-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, and two blocks in 27 minutes during Saturday's 130-117 loss to Orlando.

    Kuzma has now scored in single-digits in back-to-back games while failing to add any assists and just one steal. Kuzma is generally a solid source of points and three's but on nights his shot isn't falling, he can be more of a fantasy liability. He is a low-end standard league guy with a limited fantasy skillset.

  • Lakers' Lonzo Ball: Scoreless in 28 minutes Saturday

    Ball recorded just five rebounds, four assists, two steals, and one block in 28 minutes during Saturday's 130-117 loss to the Magic.

    Ball missed all five of his field-goal attempts Saturday but did manage to put up some other numbers as a small compensation. He is locked in as the starter in the absence of Rajon Rondo (hand) and should be better than this on most nights. Chances are he was dropped in some leagues and after this performance, could be dropped in some more. He is worth a roster spot in standard leagues but could provide you with plenty of bumps in the road.

  • Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Undergoes successful surgery

    Rondo (hand) underwent successful surgery Thursday and is expected to miss four-to-five weeks.

    Rondo suffered a fractured third metacarpal in his right hand during Wednesday's 126-117 victory over the Trail Blazers. The veteran is averaging 8.5 points, 6.5 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.2 steals this season, transitioning to a bench role as Lonzo Ball has started the past 12 games. In Rondo's absence look for Josh Hart and Lance Stephenson to potentially see increased run off the bench.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Held out of practice Thursday

    James was held out of Thursday's practice to stay fresh for the Lakers' upcoming road trip, Kyle Goon of the Southern California News Group reports.

    There's nothing to indicate James is dealing with an injury that could keep him out of Saturday's game against the Magic. Coach Luke Walton noted that it's a priority to keep James healthy following a physical game against the Trail Blazers on Wednesday, where he dropped 44 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists, three blocks and a steal in 36 minutes.

  • Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Will have surgery

    Rondo (hand) will undergo surgery before the weekend, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    A timetable of 3-to-5 weeks was established for Rondo's return, which should still hold true. However, with surgery, it may be on the latter end. In Rondo's absence, Lonzo ball is slated to see an uptick in workload.

  • Lakers' Lonzo Ball: Set for increased role in Rajon Rondo's absence

    Ball is expected to see an uptick in playing time with Rajon Rondo (hand) sidelined three-to-five weeks.

    Rondo suffered a broken third metacarpal in his right hand during Wednesday's 126-117 victory over the Trail Blazers. Over the past nine games with Rondo available, Ball has seen 25.1 minutes and averaged 7.0 points, 4.7 assists and 4.3 rebounds. When Rondo missed three games in late October due to a suspension, Ball garnered 31.3 minutes per night and averaged 12.7 points, 6.7 assists, 6.3 rebounds and 2.7 steals.

  • Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Out 3-to-5 weeks

    Rondo (hand) is expected to be sidelined three-to-five weeks, Ohm Youngmisuk and Dave McMenamin of ESPN report.

    Rondo suffered a fractured third metacarpal in his right hand during Wednesday's 126-117 victory over the Trail Blazers. He is set to see a specialist Thursday to determine if surgery is necessary. Without Rondo in the fold for around a month, Lonzo Ball should see increased ballhandling responsibilities.

  • Lakers' Kentavious Caldwell-Pope: Continues productive stretch off bench

    Caldwell-Pope posted 13 points (4-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and two steals across 17 minutes in the Lakers' 126-117 win over the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.

    It's the third straight strong offensive effort for KCP off the bench, as he's now averaging 11.7 points over 17.0 minutes during that stretch. The trio of double-digit point totals he's managed over that span have come on the strength of 46.2 percent shooting, including 47.1 percent from three-point range. Caldwell-Pope doesn't look likely to regain his starting two-guard job any time soon, but the infusion of offense he's offering on the second unit is proving valuable to the Lakers' efforts.

  • Lakers' Lonzo Ball: More across-the-board production in win

    Ball totaled 11 points (4-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists and one steal across 32 minutes in the Lakers' 126-117 win over the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.

    LeBron James took control of the game in the second half and Brandon Ingram put up 15 shot attempts as well, but Ball made fairly good use of his secondary opportunities. The second-year point guard checked in behind only James as far as rebounds on the starting five. Moreover, he impressively reached the 60.0 percent mark from three-point range for the second straight game, and the third time overall in the last five. Despite the solid production Wednesday, fantasy owners will continue to have to live with Ball's inconsistency on offense, considering he's managed a double-digit point total in only two of six November contests.

  • Lakers' Brandon Ingram: Bounces back with 17-point effort

    Ingram delivered 17 points (6-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four assists, two rebounds and one steal across 32 minutes in the Lakers' 126-117 win over the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.

    Ingram had totaled just 22 combined points over the prior two games, but he bounced back with a better shooting effort Wednesday. The 2016 second overall pick had posted a sub-40.0 percent success rate in those contests, but he was able to hit the mark against the Trail Blazers while also turning in an 80.0 percent effort from the free-throw line. The 21-year-old's usage will tend to fluctuate given that he shares the floor with the likes of LeBron James and Kyle Kuzma, but he can typically be counted on to prop up his lines with solid production across other categories when his offense sees a slight downturn.
