Kyle Kuzma News

Kyle Kuzma    F  Lakers

 

 

Kyle Kuzma grabbed a career-high 15 boards with 12 points, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Mavs on Saturday. His playing time was a little inconsistent to end January, but that probably won't be the case anymore. Coach Luke Walton went away from Kuzma at times because of his defense, but that was because he had Larry Nance. Expect Kuzma to look more like the Kuzmania version we saw to finish 2017.

Kyle Kuzma hit 6-of-15 shots and two 3-pointers for 16 points, nine rebounds, two assists, a steal and two blocks in 24 minutes in Thursday's win over the Thunder. Kuzma gets a boost with Larry Nance in Cleveland and played very well tonight, and the two blocks were a nice bonus. Kuzma's not starting for the Lakers, and probably won't any time soon, but if he's sitting on your waiver wire, or you want to use him while his price is low in DFS, now is the time to pounce.

Kuzma had just two points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), three rebounds and one block in 16 minutes during Sunday's 108-104 victory over Oklahoma City. Kuzma had arguably his worst game of the season Sunday, finishing with an abysmal two points on four field-goal attempts. He has been a nice addition for the Lakers this season but has seen his value fall over the last five games. He is mired in an endless minefield of uncertainty as the Lakers play with their rotations heading into the trade deadline. He is almost certainly a part of the future plans for the team but his role is yet to be determined. He is still worth holding until the dust settles and the players he is competing with become clearer.

Kyle Kuzma was nearly invisible in his 16 minutes of floor time on Sunday, going 1-of-4 from the field on his way to two points, three rebounds and one block. The Lakers' second unit hasn't done a very good job of getting Kuzma involved on offense, and overall, he's really struggled ever since Lonzo Ball (knee) hit the sidelines. Over the past 10 games sans Ball, Kuzma has only been offering up averages of 11.6 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.6 triples and 1.3 turnovers per game on 42.1% shooting. He's slumping, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him turn the corner once Ball gets back out there.

Kyle Kuzma scored six points with three rebounds, one assist and one steal and no turnovers in 20 minutes against the Nets on Friday. The move of Julius Randle to the starting unit has hurt Kuzma a little bit, especially with Larry Nance playing well, too. Kuzma will get his recent slump sorted out and the Lakers possibly missing Brandon Ingram (groin) could help him earn run.

Kuzma produced 11 points (5-13 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and four rebounds across 28 minutes during a 127-105 loss to the Magic on Wednesday. Kuzma was quiet for the third consecutive game in Wednesday's loss. The 27 combined points over his last three outings mark his lowest combined point total across three games so far this season. The rookie is in a bit of a funk, but he'll likely bounce back soon based on his consistently solid season up to this point.

Kyle Kuzma came off the bench to hit 10-of-16 shots and five 3-pointers for 28 points, four rebounds and three assists to lead the Lakers in scoring and to their third straight win against the Celtics on Tuesday. Kuzma basically won this one for the Lakers in his best game since he scored 31 points on Christmas Day. This was actually his first 20-point game in January, and while he's cooled off, he was playing well enough to still be owned and started in all fantasy leagues. He played just 10 minutes on Sunday (but still scored 15 points) after jamming his right index finger, but obviously, it's not a problem.

Kuzma posted 28 points (10-16 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 3-5 FT), four rebounds and three assists in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 108-107 win over the Celtics. In a game that came down to the wire, Kuzma provided a nice spark off the bench, which was a welcome sign for Kuzma owners who have seen his output trail off in the past few games. He drained five threes out of seven attempts which will surely boost his 37.2 percent success rate from long range. Kuzma looks to be sent to the bench whenever coach Luke Walton elects to go with a taller trio in the backcourt, but when the matchup is right he is more likely to see extended time.

Kyle Kuzma logged just 10 minutes off the bench on Sunday, finishing with 15 points, two 3-pointers and nothing else in the Lakers' 127-107 win over the Knicks. Kuzma jammed his right index finger early in the game, but he played through it, and X-rays came back negative so he should be fine. Luke Walton said the lack of minutes were due to defensive issues for Kuzma, but we'd expect him to be back in his standard 30-minute role on Tuesday against the Celtics.

Kuzma will shift back to a bench role for Sunday's game against the Knicks. The Lakers went with a smaller starting five on Friday vs. the Knicks, starting Kuzma and Julius Randle at power forward and center, respectively. However, they'll go back to their typical big unit, with Randle and Brook Lopez in the top unit, while Kuzma comes off the bench. Kuzma could see a few less minutes with the demotion, though he's still a big part of the Lakers' regular rotation. Over the last five games, Kuzma has averaged 13.2 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.2 steals across 30.0 minutes.
