Kyle Kuzma flirts with double-double against Milwaukee

Los Angeles Lakers power forward Kyle Kuzma scored 11 points, grabbed eight rebounds, and recorded a +10 in plus/minus during 24 productive minutes in a 113-103 victory over the NBA-best Milwaukee Bucks.

Fantasy Impact

Kuzma is not starting but still gets plenty of opportunities to contribute. The volume is there, as he attempted 11 shots (including six three-pointers) against Milwaukee. If he could have made a few more shots, it could have been a big game. Kuzma is clearly the top bench option for the Lakers in terms of minutes and could be a decent pick-up in deeper leagues.

Kyle Kuzma scores 18 as Lakers rout Warriors

Kyle Kuzma managed 18 points (8-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, three assists and a steal across 29 minutes in the Lakers’ 116-86 win over the Warriors on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Kuzma came away with one of his best scoring performances of the last month Thursday, chipping in some extra work thanks to the absence of LeBron James. The arrival of Anthony Davis has cut into Kuz's minutes and production dramatically, and the third-year forward has seen his averages fall from last season to 12.6 points, 4.3 boards and 1.3 assists across 24.5 minutes in 2019-20.

Kyle Kuzma quiet again as Lakers win Tuesday

Kyle Kuzma recorded nine points (4-10 FG, 0-3 3PT, 1-1 FT), one rebound, and one steal in 12 minutes of play off the bench Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

It's been three weeks since Kuzma has recorded double-digit rebounds. The third-year forward appears to have no fantasy relevance as long as Anthony Davis remains healthy.

Kyle Kuzma records nine points and eight rebounds in Monday's win

Kyle Kuzma posted a statline of nine points (4-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 0-1 FT), eight rebounds, four assists, two blocks, and a steal over 20 minutes in Monday's 125-100 win over the Suns.

Fantasy Impact

Kuzma has now failed to scored 20 points in a game in 10 straight outings. The young power forward came into this season with high hopes playing alongside Lebron James and Anthony Davis, but has unfortunately been relegated to a bench role and has failed to live up to his lofty expectations. Kuzma is averaging 11 points, six rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game over five games so far in February. While the points total is slightly below his season average of 12.8, Lakers fans and fantasy owners would both like to see him continue that pace of rebounds and assists.

Kyle Kuzma chips in four off the bench in Thursday's loss

Kyle Kuzma scored four points last night (2-8 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT), grabbed six rebounds, had one assist, and one steal over 20 relief minutes in the 121-111 loss to the Rockets on Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact

Kuzma played a relief role for the eight straight contest and turned in a pretty quiet outing. Since being relegated to the bench, Kuzma has turned in 11.8 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 1.3 assists. All of those numbers are below his season averages, which were already the worst of his three-year career. Kuzma's regression continues but his ability to go off for big scoring games keeps him as a high-ceiling option in DFS tournaments. He's still too good to drop in fantasy, just a frustrating player to own given where you drafted him and the production you expected. He and the Lakers will face the Warriors on Saturday night.
