The Los Angeles Lakers agreed to trade swingman Josh Hart, forward Brandon Ingram and guard Lonzo Ball, as well as three first-round draft picks, to the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday in exchange for power forward/center Anthony Davis. The Pelicans made quite the haul here. Hart (knee) is coming off of surgery in March for a torn right patellar tendon, and he joins a rather crowded backcourt in NOLA with Ball, Jrue Holiday and E'Twaun Moore on the roster for now. The Pelicans might not be done molding their roster, but as it stands right now, Hart's fantasy outlook might actually be a little worse than it was in L.A.
Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Josh Hart will miss Sundays contest versus the Sacramento Kings due to right knee tendinitis. Harts absence will mark his second consecutive game out of the rotation and third in his teams last five contests. He has seen his role decrease significantly during the second half of the year, with his absence Sunday paving the way for Alex Caruso to likely continue seeing a hefty workload. Harts next chance to return to action comes Tuesday against the Washington Wizards.
Los Angeles Lakers guard Alex Caruso had the hot hand on Thursday when he connected on 5-for-7 shooting from the floor and made all five of his free throws to score a career-high 16 points. Caruso did not stop there as he added five rebounds with five assists and added a make from three in 27 minutes of action. Josh Hart also showed some life as he played 28 minutes and scored eight points. With the Lakers getting further away from the playoff picture, we can see the Lakers will start giving some run to some of their younger guns. Keep an eye on Caruso and Hart in your leagues as they could hold some consistent value very soon.
