Josh Hart News

Josh Hart    G  Lakers

 

 

Josh Hart finished Wednesday's road loss with 15 points (5-of-6 FGs, 2-of-3 FTs), six rebounds, three 3-pointers, two assists, two steals, one block and two turnovers in 31 minutes. Lonzo Ball (knee) said recently that he feels "good enough to play," but will rest through the All-Star break as a precaution. It will be very interesting to see how coach Luke Walton handles his rotations once his backcourt is complete, but Hart should still find minutes with the versatility to play multiple positions. The same can't be said for veterans like Isaiah Thomas and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, both of whom are on expiring contracts.

Josh Hart scored nine points with two rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Mavs on Saturday. The usage was down a tad, but Hart isn't really a scorer anyway. The big difference is that he only had two boards after he averaged 11.0 per game over his previous four, adding averages of 13.5 points, 3.0 dimes, 1.3 steals and 2.5 treys. He'll be getting his minutes the rest of the way and it's possible he still starts even when Lonzo Ball returns. He should be owned in standard leagues.

Josh Hart hit 4-of-9 shots and two 3-pointers for 10 points, eight rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block in 33 minutes in Thursday's win over the Thunder. Hart's going to take a hit once Lonzo Ball and Isaiah Thomas are back in the fold for the Lakers, but he's played well enough over the past few weeks to be held until we see how things shake out once the new lineup is in place. And the fact he can play three positions doesn't hurt his fantasy value, either.

Josh Hart started again for Lonzo Ball and hit 5-of-7 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in 31 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Suns. It sounds like Ball isn't likely to play again before the All-Star break and Hart was awesome again tonight. He's now double-doubled in three straight games, is shooting it lights out, and has hit eight 3-pointers in those three games as well. Hart has two more games this week and then plays on Wednesday and Thursday next week, so picking him up for those four games makes a lot of sense.

Hart finished with 14 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and two steals in 39 minutes during Sunday's 108-104 victory over the Thunder. Hart saw a team-high 39 minutes and put up his second consecutive double-double. That makes back-to-back strong games for Hart and he continues to push his case for more regular minutes. Although he is listed as a guard, he is playing more of a small forward role while allowing Brandon Ingram to facilitate the offense. With the Lakers looking to potentially make some moves before the trade deadline, there is a chance Hart is afforded the opportunity to prove his metal to those that matter. He is more of a deep league option at the moment but is worth keeping an eye on in the shallower formats.

Josh Hart notched his second straight double-double during Sunday's win over the Thunder, tallying 14 points, 11 rebounds, two 3-pointers, two assists, two steals and two turnovers in 39 minutes. The Lakers got embarrassed in a blowout loss to Orlando last Wednesday, which prompted Luke Walton to replace Tyler Ennis in the starting five with Hart, and the end result has been back-to-back wins for L.A. Over that two-game span, Hart has posted averages of 14.5 points, 12.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 2.5 triples, 1.5 steals and just 1.0 turnover per game while connecting on an unsustainable 71.4% of his shot attempts. Lonzo Ball (knee) isn't expected to play Tuesday, so Hart figures to earn another start, putting him on the radar in deep leagues.

Hart scored 15 points (5-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-4 FT) while adding 14 rebounds, two assists and a steal in 35 minutes during Friday's 102-99 win over the Nets. With Lonzo Ball (knee) still sidelined, Hart got another look in the starting lineup for the Lakers and didn't disappoint, collecting his third double-double of the season. Despite lining up at point guard, the rookie isn't much of a distributor -- his career high so far is only four assists -- but his ability to contribute on the glass frees up players like Brandon Ingram to take on a point-forward role in the offense. Expect coach Luke Walton to continue mixing and matching in his backcourt while Ball is out, but on nights when Hart gets the nod, he's capable of providing strong value to DFS rosters at a bargain price.
