Trevor Ariza News
Los Angeles Lakers power forward Trevor Ariza has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Spurs after being placed in the league's COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Ariza has been perfect from the field since making his season debut Sunday, knocking down all five of his field-goal attempts. At 36 years old, Ariza remains a solid contributor for L.A.'s second unit, albeit not one that has yet merited season-long interest. Carmelo Anthony and Isaiah Thomas are likely to snag added shots off the bench for as long as Ariza remains sidelined.
Newly acquired Miami Heat forward Trevor Arizawill be available to play Friday night against the Indiana Pacers. Ariza has not played at all this season because of the league's COVID-19 health and safety protocols and was taking up a roster spot on the Oklahoma City Thunder, but he could be in line for some valuable minutes in Miami's rotation immediately. Avery Bradley (calf) remains sidelined, while Andre Iguodala (hip) is in danger of missing the contest. Ariza has been a solid three-and-D player in his entire career, but it remains to be seen if he can still contribute for fantasy managers.
The Detroit Pistons have acquired veteran forward Trevor Ariza and the No. 16 overall pick in the 2020 NBA draft from Houston in exchange for a future first-round selection. Ariza had just been acquired by the Rockets from the Trail Blazers earlier in the week in a deal that sent Robert Covington out west, with the latest deal denying the well-traveled wing a chance at reuniting with a Houston group he played for from 2014-18. Ariza's move to Detroit increases his fantasy prospects for the '20-21 season, as he should see considerable time at the small forward position. Upon joining Portland at the end of last year, he averaged 11 points and 4.8 rebounds across 33.4 minutes per contest, all while shooting 40 percent from long range. The move also frees up Houston to use a mid-level exception in free agency over the coming weeks. Check back to see who Detroit adds with their new draft selection.
Portland Trail Blazers forward Trevor Ariza has decided to sit out during the upcoming NBA restart. He will elect to pass on the restart happening in late July, which will be a big blow to the Blazers. Ariza will instead deal with personal issues, but is expected to be back next season. Rodney Hood (Achilles) is done for the rest of the season as well, so the Blazers are fairly thin in terms of depth. Mario Hezonja and Gary Trent Jr. will be asked to step up with Ariza and Hood done. Trent could have some value as a cheap option in DFS contests.
