Lonzo Ball scored 16 points (5-9 FG, 4-6 3PT, 2-2 FT), handed out four assists, grabbed three rebounds, blocked two shots, and committed four turnovers across 29 minutes in a loss to the Kings.
Ball has been atrocious in the six games coming into this one, but he finally got out of his scoring funk, producing 16 points and hitting four three's in the process. He turned over the ball four times, which is terrible considering the talent on the floor. Ball has one game left to go out on a high note, and he'll face his former team, the Los Angeles Lakers. Ball can be avoided in all DFS formats.
Lonzo Ball totaled five points (2-10 FG, 0-4 3PT, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, ten assists, and two blocks in 31 minutes in the Pelicans' 122-113 loss to the Spurs on Sunday.
Ball was unable to find his shot in the team's loss to the Spurs, shooting 20.0 percent from the floor and 0.0 percent from beyond the arc. He has averaged 6.8 points per game across the six "seeding" games thus far and has shot 26.0 percent from the floor and 19.2 percent from beyond the arc. Ball's skill in stuffing the stat-sheet has helped him remain fantasy-relevant; however, his failure to tap into his ceiling could limit his appeal. He is still worth rostering in most fantasy formats and is worth considering in DFS, depending on your roster construction.
Lonzo Ball once again failed to reach double-figures in scoring in Friday’s win over the Wizards. He finished with just two points on 1-of-7 shooting, with nine rebounds, five assists, one steal, three blocks, and three turnovers.
Ball played 31 minutes but recorded a +/- of -6 in an 11-point win. He didn’t shoot well, and he wasn’t very effective when on the floor tonight, but he still managed to post a respectable line. Ball has yet to score in double-figures since play resumed after averaging 12 points per game on the season prior to the re-start.
Lonzo Ball totaled nine points (4-7 FG, 1-4 3PT), two rebounds, eleven assists, one steal, and one block in 31 minutes in the Pelicans' 140-125 loss to the Kings on Thursday.
Ball had 11 assists in the Pelicans' loss to the Kings, showing his talent as the team's floor "general." It looks as if he will need more time to get back to the level of production he reached before the break, however, his upside, price-point, and ability to fill the stat-sheet make him an intriguing option in DFS.
Lonzo Ball scored just 7 (2-7 FG, 1-2 FT, 2-7 3PT) with four rebounds, six assists, four steals, and three turnovers in 34 minutes in Monday's big 109-99 win over the Grizzlies.
Ball scored in single-digits for the third straight game in Orlando. That being said, he led the Pelicans in +/- tonight with a +15 when he was on the floor. While he's not being asked to carry much of the load offensively with guys like Brandon Ingram, Zion Williamson, and Jrue Holiday doing much of that, he's still playing fairly well and providing those that do decide to roster him with some nice peripheral stats.
