Alex Caruso (hand) probable for Friday night

Lakers G Alex Caruso (hand) is listed as "probable" for Friday night's game against the Grizzlies.

Fantasy Impact

Over the last week, Caruso has been dealing with a hand strain, but he is expected to see the floor for Friday's matchup against the Grizzlies. However, Caruso is only averaging 5.5 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 2.1 assists in the 2020-21 campaign. He remains a desperation start in all fantasy formats.

Alex Caruso provides 10 points in a double-overtime victory against Detroit

Alex Caruso stashed 10 points (3-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds and two steals in 26 minutes of work on Saturday versus the Pistons.

Fantasy Impact

The Carushow logged his largest minutes total of the season (26) and matched his highest scoring output with 10 points. The scrappy guard hit a clutch three-pointer deep into overtime to reach the double-digit threshold. Caruso's only other highlight was a pair of steals which helped his team but wasn't enough to make a significant impact in any fantasy format. Given that one of Caruso's better games this season isn't on anyone's fantasy radar, all discussions about his fantasy value should be self-explanatory.

Alex Caruso out against the Trail Blazers

Alex Caruso, per coach Frank Vogel, will not be playing in the Lakers' contest against the Trail Blazers due to being in the NBA’s health and safety protocols.

Fantasy Impact

After initially being questionable for today’s match-up due to a strained hand, Caruso’s participation in the league's health and safety protocols add a new layer of concern regarding his future availability. The undrafted fourth-year pro has been a steadfast contributor in the Lakers' rotation, averaging 13.4 minutes of playing time, 5.3 points, 1.7 rebounds, 1.0 assists, and 0.7 steals per game this season while shooting 54.5 percent from the floor and 50.0 percent from beyond the arc. Despite being a valued contributing team member, he should not be relied upon for consistent, if any, long-term fantasy value.
