Larry Nance posted 15 points across 27 minutes in Friday's 112-89 victory on the road against the Grizzlies.
Nance hit 6-of-11 from the field while finishing a perfect 3-of-3 from the charity stripe. He also chipped in with eight rebounds, four steals, two assists and two blocked shots while turning it over just once. He is fitting in rather nicely in his old man's former digs, and this was his most complete game in four outings since coming over from the Los Angeles Lakers. Feb 23 - 11:19 PM

Rodney Hood, Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. will be available to make their Cavs debut Sunday vs. Boston.

George Hill will also make his debut on Sunday, but will be part of the starting five. Hood, Clarkson and Nance will come off the bench vs. the Celtics. Coach Ty Lue will have to mix-and-match rotations over the next couple of weeks as he attempts to incorporate all these new players into the mix.

Isaiah Thomas has been traded to the Lakers in the deal sending Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance to the Cavaliers.

Channing Frye is also headed to L.A. as part of the deal, along with a first-round pick from the Cavs. Josh Hart's fantasy stock dips with IT in town, and this gives the Lakers more leeway to ease back Lonzo Ball from his knee injury. Thomas is heading into unrestricted free agency and will reportedly be seeking a max deal, but L.A. reportedly hopes to retain him. The Lakers play with the fastest pace in the league, which can only help Thomas, so fantasy owners should be satisfied with his landing spot.

The Lakers are sending Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance to the Cavaliers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of

And we're off. The Cavs get themselves some much needed help to their backcourt, and chances are they are not done here. Clarkson isn't the best shooter, so he will likely be coming off the bench. Fantasy wise, this is not the best spot for Clarkson because he'll be losing shots to LeBron James and presumably other players, but maybe he can hold value with Isaiah Thomas off the roster.
Feb 8 - 12:07 PM

Kyle Kuzma (left hand) is listed as questionable vs. the Kings on Friday.

Kuzma is dealing with a sprained joint in his hand and L.A. could play it safe, but we should get a better sense of his status after shootaround. Julius Randle and Larry Nance should soak up extra minutes if Kuzma is ruled out.
Jan 18 - 6:25 PM

Brandon Ingram (mild left ankle sprain) will not return to Saturday's game against the Mavericks.

Ingram tweaked his ankle during the first quarter and tried to play through it after getting his ankle re-taped in the locker room, but after a second trip to the locker room the Lakers ruled him out for the remainder of the game. He'll end his evening with four points, six boards, five dimes in 14 minutes, and for now, we'll be considering him questionable for Monday's game in Memphis. His absence would translate to more minutes for Kyle Kuzma, Larry Nance and Julius Randle. Stay tuned.
Jan 13 - 2:43 PM

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, there's a mutual desire between the Lakers and Jordan Clarkson to find a trade sooner rather than later.

Wojnarowski previously reported that the Lakers would prefer to wait until the end of the season, but that doesn't seem to be the case any more. The Lakers are trying to shed salary for the free agent market in 2018 and have given up hope of trying to move Luol Deng's laughable contract, so Clarkson, Julius Randle and even Larry Nance could be moved. Clarkson is only averaging 23.1 minutes per game for the Lakers, so a change of scenery could be a good thing.

In his third game back from a sprained ankle on Sunday, Brook Lopez notched eight points, three rebounds, two assists, four steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in just 19 minutes of action.

The defensive stats tonight were fluky -- he had three steals and two blocks in the first quarter alone, which exceeded his combined total in any entire game so far this season. Larry Nance scored 13 points on 6-of-6 shooting off the bench, Julius Randle (23 minutes) played more than Lopez tonight, and there's always a chance that Ivica Zubac will see meaningful minutes late in the season. In other words, we're not coveting BroLo if you're looking ahead to the fantasy playoffs.
Jan 8 - 1:31 AM

Brook Lopez (ankle) logged 16 minutes on Wednesday, finishing with 10 points on 4-of-11 shooting, two 3-pointers and five rebounds.

Lopez's ankle is reportedly pain-free, but the Lakers still had him on a minute-limit as a precaution tonight. The restriction is mostly symbolic anyway, since he came in averaging a career-low 22.4 minutes for the Lakers this season. That's resulted in career-lows in scoring (12.8 points per game), and rebounds (4.3), but he's still capable of mid-round roto value with minutes in the 22-26 range.
Jan 4 - 2:32 AM

Kyle Kuzma (quad) will be listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Clippers.

Kuzma admitted after Wednesday's loss that he was sore, so this isn't a surprising development and we're marking him sidelined as a result. It's also worth noting that Kuz has played at least 34.5 minutes six straight games, including four outings of 40 or more minutes. If Kuzma does miss Friday's matchup, the Lakers would likely slide Larry Nance back into the starting lineup. Luke Walton has shown a real inclination to keep Julius Randle on the bench.

Julius Randle was a footnote in the Lakers' rotation on Wednesday, coming off the bench for four points on 2-of-3 shooting, one rebound and one assist in eight minutes.

L.A. began the game with Andrew Bogut clogging the paint defensively, then pivoted to a frontcourt of Larry Nance and Kyle Kuzma after halftime. The Rockets attacked Randle in pick-and-rolls when he was on the court, forcing him into switches on James Harden, so that was likely part of the reason he barely played. Luke Walton conceded that Randle was "a little frustrated" by his lack of activity tonight, and he should have a bigger role vs. Golden State on Friday.
Thu, Dec 21, 2017 12:31:00 AM

An MRI revealed a moderate right ankle sprain for Brook Lopez and he will be re-evaluated in three weeks.

With Lopez out for the next three weeks, Julius Randle should be able to see his minutes in the 30s more regularly as he splits the center minutes with Larry Nance Jr., which will also open up some more playing time for Kyle Kuzma at the four-spot. Andrew Bogut and Ivaca Zubac should also be more involved in the rotation, but the primary beneficiaries here will be Kuzma, Randle and Nance, in that order. If Bogut finds himself starting, he could creep his way onto the deep league radar.

Kyle Kuzma came off the bench for 20 points, seven rebounds and a 3-pointer on 8-of-16 shooting in Thursday's 121-112 loss to the Cavaliers.

Kuzma had 19 points and a solid line on Tuesday, while Larry Nance started and finished with six points, 12 rebounds and two steals in 21 minutes, and Julius Randle came off the bench for 13 points, four rebounds, three assists and a block. As for ownership rankings, our recommended order is Kuzma, Randle and Nance.
Thu, Dec 14, 2017 11:39:00 PM

Kyle Kuzma played 30 minutes and hit 8-of-17 shots and three 3-pointers for 19 points, six rebounds, one assist and two blocks in Tuesday's win.

Julius Randle had 13 points, four boards and a block off the bench in 27 minutes, while starter Larry Nance hit 2-of-4 shots for five points and nine rebounds in 26 minutes. All three of these guys are going to have their flashes of greatness, but all three are going to hurt each other's consistency as well. We'd rank them Kuzma, Randle and Nance going forward, at least for now.
Tue, Dec 12, 2017 10:55:00 PM

Julius Randle came off the bench to hit 7-of-15 shots for 16 points, three rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block in 30 minutes on Thursday.

That's a pretty good line for Randle, especially considering he picked up five fouls in the game. Larry Nance Jr. started and had 11 points and seven rebounds, and Kyle Kuzma played just 19 minutes and hit 1-of-7 shots for three points. The three-headed monster at power forward for the Lakers is real, and it looks like Luke Walton is going to go with the hot hand from night to night.
Thu, Dec 7, 2017 11:05:00 PM

Julius Randle played 16 minutes on Sunday, scoring five points on 1-of-4 FGs and 3-of-4 FTs with five rebounds and one steal.

Randle committed five fouls and that's been a persistent issue the past four games -- he's averaging 4.5 fouls in 23.3 minutes in that span. The return of Larry Nance (hand) hasn't helped, of course, and Randle's FT shooting (65.2% on 4.2 attempts) is an issue in category-based leagues, but he still has intriguing rest-of-season potential.
Mon, Dec 4, 2017 12:41:00 AM

Kyle Kuzma will return to the second unit with Larry Nance Jr. (hand) back in the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the Clippers.

Kuzma probably won't see his minutes in the mid-30s with Nance back in the rotation, but through 26.8 minutes as a reserve this season Kuzma was still able to contribute averages of 15.0 points, 4.8 boards and 1.4 triples per contest on 54.3 percent shooting, so he'll still be worth owning regardless of how he enters the game. Julius Randle figures to take the largest hit with Nance back in action.
Mon, Nov 27, 2017 03:48:00 PM

Julius Randle lit up the Nuggets on Sunday for a season-high 24 points on 11-of-18 shooting, hitting one 3-pointer with seven rebounds, five assists and two turnovers.

Randle played 32 minutes, after logging just 16 minutes vs. Phoenix on Friday, and after the game coach Luke Walton said, "When [Randle] plays like he did tonight, he's as good as anyone in this league]." Nikola Jokic (ejection) and Paul Millsap (wrist) were both out after halftime tonight, and Randle deserves credit for taking advantage of the situation, but we're skeptical since Kyle Kuzma is playing well at PF and Larry Nance (hand) is due back soon.
Mon, Nov 20, 2017 12:46:00 AM

Kyle Kuzma had another double-double on Sunday with 13 points and 12 rebounds, making 5-of-9 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs with one 3-pointer, one assist and just one turnover in 38 minutes.

Larry Nance (hand) is out about another month, which gives Kuzma all the daylight he needs. The rookie ranks third in the NBA in two-point percentage (68.7), coach Luke Walton loves him, and his fantastic Summer League and preseason were anything but a fluke. If he keeps it up, Walton could be hard-pressed to bench him even when Nance is healthy.
Mon, Nov 6, 2017 12:37:00 AM

Julius Randle needed only 17 minutes on Sunday to score 12 points on 6-of-10 FGs, with eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block.

Nobody can accuse Randle of being lackadaisical during his court-time, but the low minutes are glaring -- even with Larry Nance (hand) out of commission, Kyle Kuzma logged 38 minutes compared to Randle's 17 minutes. We're still preaching patience while Nance is out, but the tune will change if this lopsided timeshare keeps up for another week.
Mon, Nov 6, 2017 12:23:00 AM

Julius Randle (ribs) was limited to the non-contact portions of Monday's practice.

The Lakers are listing him as day-to-day, and he still has another three full days to get ready for opening night, so him sitting out Monday's scrimmage seems precautionary more than anything else. We'll have a better idea on Randle's status following Thursday morning's shootaround, but if he is forced to sit out the first game of the season, that would open up minutes for Kyle Kuzma and Larry Nance.
