Lonzo Ball    G  Lakers

 

 

Ball totaled 13 points (5-11 FG, 3-8 3Pt), 11 assists, eight rebounds and two steals in 37 minutes during Thursday's 121-112 loss to Cleveland. Ball was questionable coming into the game, but appeared unphased by his quad concern, racking up 37 minutes of action. He appears to be adjusting to the NBA game, picking his shots carefully as opposed to putting up ill-advised attempts. His free-throws are still a concern but he doesn't really get to the line enough to make a huge impact on your overall production. He will look to continue his impressive play against the Warriors on Monday.

Lonzo Ball    G  Lakers

 

 

Lonzo Ball had 13 points, eight rebounds, 11 assists, two steals and six turnovers on Thursday, hitting 5-of-11 shots and 3-of-8 3-pointers in the loss. That's two games in a row with three 3-pointers and he's averaging 15 points, 8.0 rebounds, 8.5 assists, 2.0 steals and 3.0 3-pointers over his last two games. He's going to be very good on nights when his shot and 3-pointers are falling, but we still think he'd be better off taking fewer threes and going to the basket more. He's shot a total of seven free throws over his last five games. Ball is rolling and should be owned everywhere, obviously.

Ball (quad) will play Thursday against the Cavaliers. Ball will take his normal spot in the starting rotation after suffering a quad contusion in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Knicks. He'll be joined by a new backcourt partner in fellow rookie Josh Hart, who makes his first career start due to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (personal) being away from the team. The quad injury will be something to keep an eye on throughout the contest with Jordan Clarkson and Tyler Ennis the beneficiaries should Ball fall short of his 33.1 minutes per game season-average.

Ball is probable for Thursday's contest against the Cavaliers due to a left quad contusion, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reports. Ball likely suffered the injury during Tuesday's overtime loss to the Knicks, though he didn't play like he was injured, posting 17 points, eight rebounds, six assists, two steals and one block in 40 minutes. More information on his status should emerge as he goes through pre-game warmups. In the unlikely event he's held out, Jordan Clarkson and Tyler Ennis would probably see expanded roles at point guard.

Lonzo Ball (left quad contusion) is listed as probable for Thursday's game vs. the Cavs. Ball played 40 minutes on Tuesday and he wasn't limited on Wednesday, so there's no real concern here. Use him as normal.

Lonzo Ball had a bruise on his thigh, but he wasn't limited on Wednesday. He's fine and he is coming off a solid game at MSG. Although, Ball really needs to play better in the fourth quarter, especially because of Jordan Clarkson has taken his minutes at times.

Lonzo Ball hit 6-of-13 shots and 3-of-6 3-pointers for 17 points, eight rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block in Tuesday's 113-109 loss to the Knicks. Much like teammate Brandon Ingram, Ball's numbers look a heck of a lot better if you ignore the shooting percentages and 3-pointers, although it's not surprising that he had one of his better offensive games on a night when his 3-pointers were falling. He's only had two better offensive performances this season and maybe seeing some 3-pointers go down will get help to get him going on a hot streak.

Lonzo Ball    G  Lakers

 

 

Ball scored 17 points (6-13 FG, 3-6 3PT, 2-3 FT) to go along with eight rebounds, six assists, two steals and one block across 40 minutes in Tuesday's 113-109 overtime loss to New York. Against the Knicks, Ball set aside his offensive struggles and turned in a 17 point performance on Tuesday. Shooting 25.8 percent from three, the rookie guard found his shot after sinking 3-of-6 shots from beyond the arc. Tuesday's solid scoring night aside, Ball has only scored in the double-digits in nine games. As a result, Ball has been way more miss than hit in the scoring department. Consider his 17 points to be a rare bonus in what has been a disappointing season.

Lonzo Ball played 27 minutes with five points, five rebounds, nine assists, one block, two turnovers and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes against the Hornets on Saturday. He missed his two attempts from the line and is now down to 47.1 percent on the season. Ball's efficiency is a crater to his game with a putrid 38.4 TS%, but he still doesn't use many possessions with his 17.2 usage rate. He also didn't close this game out because of Jordan Clarkson catching fire, which has happened multiple times this season. Now that we're 25 games in, it's fair to say there's almost no chance Ball will meet his ADP for nine-cat leagues over the course of 82. Still, he should trend up and maybe he's a good fit on a team punting percentages.

Lonzo Ball played through his sore calf and hit 5-of-11 shots for 10 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, three steals and four blocks in 38 minutes of Thursday's win over the Sixers. That's quite a stat line, although he was 0-for-3 from downtown. If he's just stop shooting threes and play aggressively around the rim, it seems like it would be pretty easy for Ball to become a fantasy stud. And he was just that tonight, despite the missed triples. This was Ball's best game in a week and he's 1-of-10 from downtown in his last three games.
