Mike Malone said that Isaiah Thomas (hip) remains without a firm timetable.
"It’s day-by-day," Malone said of how they evaluate Thomas. "We haven’t put a timeline out there from the get-go… When he comes back we’re going to make sure he’s ready to come back and play and play at a high level." There have been whispers of IT2 potentially returning to the court by December, but the Nuggets are in no rush to bring him back. Without a firm return date, he can only be considered a stash if you have an IR-spot. Nov 5 - 7:42 PM

Jamal Murray said he feels stronger and more confident attacking the basket after adding 15 pounds during the offseason.

Murray saw big leaps in his FG percentage (45.1%) and 3-point percentage (37.8%) last season, but shot just 58.6% in the restricted area. The arrival of Isaiah Thomas could chip a few minutes away from him, but the 22-year-old Murray is still poised for his best-yet fantasy campaign.
Sep 27 - 4:49 PM

Free agent Lance Stephenson has agreed to a one-year, $4.5 million deal with the Lakers.

Fascinating. Stephenson may be best known for blowing in LeBron James' ear during the 2014 Eastern Conference Finals, just one of many times he's tried to antagonize his new teammate. His arrival gives L.A. another capable ball-handler to support Lonzo Ball and James, and it's one more reason to suspect Isaiah Thomas isn't coming back as a Laker. It's also not great news for Josh Hart's fantasy outlook, especially with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope having already re-signed as the presumptive starting SG.
Jul 1 - 10:29 PM

Alex Caruso (concussion) had five points, three assists and one rebound in 16 minutes vs. Dallas on Wednesday, going 1-of-6 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line.

Caruso wound up missing four games and his return was welcome news for L.A.'s backcourt. Isaiah Thomas (hip surgery) is done for the season, so Caruso should assume a steady role behind Lonzo Ball. He could even find himself starting in the near future because Ball exited tonight's game with a bruised left knee -- if you need a guard in a deep league, it makes sense to speculatively add him.
Mar 29 - 1:33 AM

Julius Randle posted a 23-point, 10-board double-double during Thursday's loss to the Pelicans, adding two assists, one block and two turnovers through 35 minutes.

Randle struggled through the first half, largely due to foul trouble, but he turned it around after halftime and did an admirable job of attempting to contain Anthony Davis. Isaiah Thomas finished 15 points on 6-of-12 shooting (2-of-2 from the line) to go with one 3-pointer, one rebound, two assists and an unfortunate six turnovers in 26 minutes off the bench.
Mar 22 - 11:20 PM

Kyle Kuzma (ankle) is questionable to play vs. Miami on Friday.

Kuzma rolled his ankle on Tuesday and reportedly couldn't do much prior to sitting out Wednesday's game. Isaiah Thomas started in his absence and could do so again if Kuzma can't go vs. the Heat, but owners should check for updates Friday afternoon.
Mar 15 - 6:47 PM

Lonzo Ball played a game-high 39 minutes on Wednesday, finishing with eight points, 11 assists, five rebounds, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

Ball and Isaiah Thomas shared the starting backcourt tonight, as injuries forced L.A. to try a variety of different looks -- at one point, they deployed Ball and Thomas with Alex Caruso, Brook Lopez and Ivica Zubac. Efficiency was again an issue for Lonzo, as he made 3-of-11 field goals (1-of-8 from deep) and 1-of-3 free throws, but that's par for the course.
Mar 15 - 1:56 AM

Lonzo Ball made just 2-of-11 shots on Sunday, finishing a home win vs. Cleveland with five points, seven assists, three rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes.

One challenge with Lonzo and Isaiah Thomas in the same backcourt is that neither guy has shot well near the rim this season -- Ball is just 45.5% within five feet, dead last among qualifying players, while Thomas' 48.8% is third-worst. Ball is also a combined 2-of-14 from deep in his past two games -- throw in high turnovers and awful FT shooting (48.2%), and it's obvious why he's far more appealing in points-based fantasy systems.
Mar 12 - 12:30 AM

Brandon Ingram (left hip flexor strain) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. San Antonio and is expected to undergo an MRI on Sunday in Los Angeles.

Ingram is still having pain in his groin area, and it's too bad, as Ingram has been playing extremely well of late. Without Ingram available, the Lakers will lean heavily on Kyle Kuzma, while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Isaiah Thomas should see more minutes, as well. And without Josh Hart (finger) available, we'd expect Kuzma to start in place of Ingram. We'll have to wait for the MRI results to more definitively establish a potential timetable for Ingram's return to action. Hopefully, it's a day-to-day type of injury, as the Lakers are paper-thin on the wing behind their slender sophomore.
Mar 3 - 12:03 PM

Josh Hart finished Wednesday's road loss with 15 points (5-of-6 FGs, 2-of-3 FTs), six rebounds, three 3-pointers, two assists, two steals, one block and two turnovers in 31 minutes.

Lonzo Ball (knee) said recently that he feels "good enough to play," but will rest through the All-Star break as a precaution. It will be very interesting to see how coach Luke Walton handles his rotations once his backcourt is complete, but Hart should still find minutes with the versatility to play multiple positions. The same can't be said for veterans like Isaiah Thomas and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, both of whom are on expiring contracts.
Feb 15 - 12:03 AM

Gary Payton II logged 17 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, scoring four points with two rebounds and no other stats to his credit.

Isaiah Thomas was ejected early tonight and Lonzo Ball (knee) is out through the break, so L.A. turned to Payton II as a backcourt band-aid. It's interesting that he played ahead of Tyler Ennis (scoreless in five minutes), but this doesn't impact typical fantasy owners.
Feb 15 - 12:01 AM

Lonzo Ball (knee) will not return for the Lakers until after the All-Star break.

Ball went through part of Tuesday's practice and "looked good," but L.A. will play it safe since he still felt "a little bit of discomfort." This also makes it unlikely that Ball will play in the Rising Stars game during All-Star weekend, but coach Luke Walton added that it's not his decision to make. Josh Hart and Isaiah Thomas should soak up Ball's minutes in L.A.'s upcoming back-to-back set.
Feb 13 - 3:31 PM

Lonzo Ball (knee) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Mavericks.

Lonzo will reportedly travel to Dallas with the team for Saturday's game; however, with the Lakers not practicing on the travel day, Ball is unable to get a practice in. Coach Luke Walton has stated that he wants Ball to put in some solid practice time before he returns to game action. Isaiah Thomas is expected to be available for Saturday's game, which means he will likely draw the start.
Feb 9 - 9:23 AM

Larry Nance has been traded to the Cavaliers.

Nance and Clarkson will head to Cleveland in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye and Cleveland's first-round pick. The Cavaliers rank 13th in the NBA in pace, but you'd think that will go up with Nance and JC running the floor. Barring another move (Cleveland is linked to DeAndre Jordan), Nance will compete for minutes with Tristan Thompson and Jae Crowder, but only needs minutes in the 20s to help fantasy owners. He's a solid add, but the deadline could create better pickups.
Feb 8 - 12:07 PM

Derrick Rose (knee) will play off the Cavaliers' bench on Thursday.

The Cavs haven't cited a specific minute-limit for Rose, but we're not expecting him to play much and he's not worth a pickup with Isaiah Thomas healthy. Among other concerns, coach Ty Lue has hinted that Rose's workload will only increase on nights when Dwyane Wade is rested.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Despite Rose's return, Isaiah Thomas is still an elite DFS play on this slate. His price is only going to rise from this point forward and if his 33 minutes on Monday is any indication, he's about ready to be unleashed. The ORL/CLE tilt is probably a slate-changer - if this one stays competitive, both teams play such horrific defense that it has potential to turn into a shootout. Thomas is the top dollar per point play on the CLE side.
Jan 18 - 5:29 PM

Jose Calderon expects to be out of the Cavs' rotation now that Isaiah Thomas is playing.

"I'm going to go back to my role, staying ready and keeping the other guys on the team sharp," Calderon said. "And there [are] going to be some days when Isaiah can't play or D Wade might need a break." He wasn't offering reliable fantasy value even as a starter.
Jan 4 - 5:52 PM

The Celtics earned their fourth straight win on Sunday, led by Kyrie Irving's game-high 28 points, eight rebounds, four 3-pointers, two assists, two steals and one block.

Boston was coming off a massive comeback victory vs. Houston, in a game they one trailed by 26 points, and they fended off the visiting Nets tonight, 108-105. Irving sank 10-of-21 shots and all four of his free throw attempts, and he's scored at least 20 points in 11 consecutive games. Boston's next game comes Wednesday vs. LeBron James, Isaiah Thomas and the visiting Cavaliers.
