Wesley Matthews News
Milwaukee Bucks shooting guard Rodney Hood (Achilles) and small forward Wesley Matthews have been lifted from the injury report ahead of Wednesday's matchup against Houston. Hood missed one game due to an Achilles ailment and has played a limited role among the team's second unit for the past month, having scored in double digits just once. Matthews has been in a similar boat, appearing in just four games before his five-contest absence due to COVID-19. Even with Giannis Antetokounmpo unavailable for the time being, neither Hood nor Matthews boasts enough fantasy upside entering play to merit DFS consideration, although their presence gives Milwaukee ample wing depth.
Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma (calf), guard Wesley Matthews (Achilles) and center Marc Gasol (hamstring) will all play Tuesday against the Charlotte Hornets. There was some concern these three would miss Tuesday in the second half of a back-to-back, but all three are available to play. Kuzma is the only fantasy relevant player here unless the Lakers were to suffer another injury blow to one of their starters.
Los Angeles Lakers small/power forward Kyle Kuzma (calf) and shooting guard Wesley Matthews (Achilles) have both been given the green light to play Monday versus the Knicks. Kuzma had missed the team's two previous games, while Matthews is back after just a one-contest absence. With LeBron James (ankle) and Anthony Davis (calf) out of the mix, Kuzma has the opportunity to continue seeing his scoring chances go through the roof. He's been a bit of a finicky DFS choice as of late, having delivered three single-digit scoring efforts and one 30-point showing across his last six games. Matthews will come off of the bench, and with New York's noted defensive acumen, the veteran is likely on the outside looking in of being fantasy relevant at this stage.
Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma (calf) and guard Wesley Matthews (Achilles) are listed as questionable for Monday's game against the New York Knicks. Kuzma has missed each of the last two games, which has forced Talen Horton-Tucker and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope into bigger roles. Matthews is dealing with Achilles soreness, so it wouldn't be shocking to see the Lakers be cautious with their veteran shooter. Alex Caruso would gain more minutes without Matthews available. However, Caldwell-Pope and Horton-Tucker are the better streaming options for Monday.
