F - LAL
Kyle Kuzma manufactured 19 points (8-12 FG, 1-3 3PT, 2-5 FT), 10 rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one block across 32 minutes on Wednesday.
Kuzma has shown a bit of a spark for Los Angeles over the past two games, and he produced a double-double for the Lakers on Wednesday. He snared 46.5 fantasy points on the night which marked his highest total over the past ten games. Kuzma might be a deep-dive play in DFS but his usefulness in season-long seems too little, too late in a checkered season.
Kyle Kuzma (back) is unlikely to play on Sunday as the Lakers battle the Suns.
Kuzma's likely absence will put the Lakers in a bind as the take on the thriving Suns. Wesley Matthews should get extra work should Kuzma not play and of course Anthony Davis should handle a heavier workload.
Kyle Kuzma compiled 25 points (9-19 FG, 3-10 3PT, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block across 31 minutes on Thursday.
Kuzma had certainly been hot and cold over his past few outings and Thursday was one of the high points. He posted a team-leading 25 points and 31 minutes as he provided the only resistance against the Clippers' fury on the night. Kuzma always has the potential to have a rock solid performance but his volatility makes him difficult to trust in DFS and down the stretch in season long.
Kyle Kuzma is listed as probable on the Lakers' injury report for Thursday's contest against Boston.
Kuzma has been dealing with a left calf strain, but it didn't seem to bother him much when he dropped 24 points against the Hornets on Tuesday. With LeBron and AD still sidelined, look for Kuzma to be in the Lakers' starting lineup once again.
Kyle Kuzma grabbed 24 points (7-18 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 6-6 FT), four rebounds and one assist as the Lakers topped the Hornets on Tuesday.
Kuzma led Los Angeles on Tuesday with 24 points as the Lakers beat the Hornets by double-digits. Despite posting his third-highest scoring output over his last ten games, Kuzma's rebounding leaves a lot to be desired. He's posted under five in his each of his last three games. Kuzma's fantasy appeal is certainly diminished without his usually steady rebound totals. He still managed to score 31.5 fantasy points on Tuesday (DraftKings).
