Kyle Kuzma News

Kyle Kuzma    F  Lakers

 

 

Kyle Kuzma had another rough showing on Thursday vs. the Wizards, scoring 13 points with nine rebounds, one assist and five turnovers in 35 minutes. If he's not hitting shots, Kuzma is going to struggle to help fantasy owners because he has one block this season and hasn't recorded a steal in three straight. He finished 4-of-14 from the field and 5-of-6 from the line, but if there's one positive, it's that he continues to get the bulk of the PF minutes with Julius Randle playing behind Brook Lopez at the five. Kuzma is a hold and should be better against the Bucks on Saturday.

Kyle Kuzma played a quiet 34 minutes on Wednesday, scoring 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting with six rebounds, one assist and three turnovers. Kuzma had been terrific shooting from the field, making 56.3 percent on 11.2 attempts, which accounted for 21.3% of his roto value. This was the first time since the Lakers' opener that he's failed to hit a 3-pointer and we're not worried about his shooting. The more pressing long-term issue is defensive stats -- he has a total of one block and five steals in 11 games.

Kyle Kuzma had another double-double on Sunday with 13 points and 12 rebounds, making 5-of-9 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs with one 3-pointer, one assist and just one turnover in 38 minutes. Larry Nance (hand) is out about another month, which gives Kuzma all the daylight he needs. The rookie ranks third in the NBA in two-point percentage (68.7), coach Luke Walton loves him, and his fantastic Summer League and preseason were anything but a fluke. If he keeps it up, Walton could be hard-pressed to bench him even when Nance is healthy.

Kyle Kuzma will start on Sunday, as expected. Kuzma posted 21 & 13 in his first start on Friday, and there was no reason for coach Luke Walton to change things up. With Kuzma starting for Larry Nance (hand), Julius Randle will again come off the bench.

Kyle Kuzma double-doubled in his first career start in Friday's 124-112 win over the Nets with 21 points and 13 rebounds. That's a career-high in rebounds after he scored a career-high 22 points on Thursday. Julius Randle only played 16 minutes before fouling out, but Kuzma's owners should expect more big lines with Larry Nance (hand) out for the next 4-6 weeks. He finished 8-of-11 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line in 39 minutes with one 3-pointer, one assist and one steal and looks like a must-start player going forward.

Kyle Kuzma will make his first career start on Friday vs. the Nets. The Lakers have used him all over the floor this season, and now he's free to play big minutes with Larry Nance (hand) expected to miss 4-6 weeks. He should've been owned before the Nance injury, but now he's a must-start player. Julius Randle's owners shouldn't be too upset, as he's also looking at a significant bump in minutes.

Kyle Kuzma scored a career-high 22 points against the Blazers on Thursday, adding three rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes. Larry Nance Jr. (hand) is out indefinitely, so Kuzma has to be considered the favorite to take over as the starter at power forward. Kuzma has still logged some decent minutes next to the first-unit guys, but he's played an overwhelming majority of his minutes next to Julius Randle -- he's also rarely played small forward. The rookie has already played over 30 minutes three times this year, so saying he'll play in the low 30s feels like a certainty. We'd like to see him add more non-scoring stats, but he should be owned in all standard leagues.
