Lonzo Ball (knee) is uncertain to play in the upcoming five-game road trip for the Lakers. "I don't expect him back [anytime soon]," coach Luke Walton said. "I haven't seen him on the court doing anything, but they're looking at it, still just taking it day by day to see when the knee is feeling better." Ball is doubtful for Tuesday's home game vs. Boston, and then the Lakers go on the road to face the Bulls, Raptors, Magic, Nets and Thunder. Jordan Clarkson has emerged as the best fantasy pickup in Ball's absence, while Alex Caruso has outplayed Tyler Ennis and could also have some nice value in the short term.
