Talen Horton-Tucker News
Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard/small forward Talen Horton-Tucker served as the focal point of the team's offense during Thursday's loss to Golden State and wound up dropping the first 40-point outing of his career. With the Lakers' stars sidelined, Horton-Tucker took advantage and shot 15-for-28 overall, also adding four steals, three rebounds, three assists, and two made threes to his enormous evening of production. Horton-Tucker has benefited from being among the starting five this season, averaging 13.5 PPG in that role, as opposed to 8.3 PPG off the bench. With the Lakers eliminated from playoff contention, he figures to play a prominent role over the final two games, beginning Friday vs. the Thunder.
Los Angeles Lakers forward Talen Horton-Tucker (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans. He has been in and out of the lineup lately, but is hopeful to suit up on Sunday. It's worth noting that Horton-Tucker was listed as probable for their last contest and ended up sitting out. He'd likely see an increased role, assuming LeBron James (knee) is sidelined. However, Horton-Tucker has been inconsistent this season, so it's tough to trust him even with an extended role.
Los Angeles Lakers power forward/center LeBron James (knee) and shooting guard/small forward Talen Horton-Tucker (ankle) have picked up questionable tags for Wednesday's game against Philadelphia. James' questionable tag is perfunctory at this stage, especially after he dropped a 38-point triple-double across 41 minutes in Cleveland on Monday. Horton-Tucker has missed two of L.A.'s last three games due to a sprained left ankle, which has funneled a larger role in the direction of Malik Monk and Austin Reaves. Fantasy managers will largely want to check back for Horton-Tucker's status, although keeping an eye on James is worth a tip-off confirmation.
Los Angeles Lakers forward Talen Horton-Tucker (ankle) won't suit up for Monday's matchup against Cleveland. The 21-year-old was riding a probable tag throughout the day, so it appeared as if he would be good to go. However, he's now out, with Wednesday's outing against Philadelphia being his next chance to make it back. In the meantime, Austin Reaves may get more minutes than usual and should be considered as a cost-saving alternative by DFS managers in tournament formats.
