Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (groin) plans to suit up for Tuesday's game against the Brooklyn Nets. He was listed as questionable on Monday's injury report, but it appears James plans to play through the issue. The Lakers are running away with the West, so it would make sense for them to rest James, but we'll see. It sounds like he's going to play, but fantasy owners should check back closer to tip-off just in case.
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (groin) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Brooklyn Nets. He is reportedly dealing with a minor left groin issue, but the Lakers may take the cautious approach. The Lakers have a 6.5 game lead on the top of the West, so they can afford to rest James for a game or two. Fantasy owners will have to check back closer to tip-off for more information on his status.
Los Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis racked up 30 points, eight rebounds, two assists, one block, and two steals in 34 minutes during the 112-103 win over the Clippers on Sunday. The Brow notched his third consecutive game with at least 30 points and has been playing lights out the last eight games. He has secured four double-doubles and scored at least 28 points in five contests during that stretch. Though he is a daily fantasy starter, the 26-year-old faces a tough matchup against the Nets on Tuesday, who rank as one of the top teams defensively in field goal percentage allowed.
Los Angeles Lakers forward Avery Bradley compiled a season-high 24 points and shot 6-for-12 from downtown in the 112-103 win over the Clippers on Sunday. The veteran also added three rebounds, one assist, and two steals in 33 minutes of play. It was the breakout game of the season for the 29-year-old as he was super effective in scoring and shooting from long distance. Nevertheless, this was an anomaly. The Texas product averages 8.3 points per game and has only scored over 20 points twice this entire season. You cannot bank on Bradley putting up these numbers consistently, which makes him too risky as a fantasy option.
Los Angeles Lakers power forward/center Anthony Davis needed just 19 shots to register 37 points and he also filled up the categories in the 13-point win over the 76ers. Davis put up 13 rebounds, two assists, four steals, two blocks, and four triples on Tuesday after returning from a one-game absence due to a sore right knee. Another incredible number from this game was that Davis was a plus-30 in his 39 minutes when he was on the floor, compared to LeBron James who was a minus-2. Owners can hope this knee issue is not a serious problem for Davis going forward.
