G - LAL
Wesley Matthews is a late scratch for Saturday's game against the Nets due to Achilles tendon tightness.
With Matthews sidelined, Dennis Schroder and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope could be in line for more opportunity Saturday.
Wesley Matthews has been listed as questionable with a neck strain ahead of the Lakers game Sunday against the Clippers.
Matthews left Friday's game early against the Kings, finishing with one rebound across just five minutes of playing time. This will be a situation to monitor on Sunday. Andre Drummond (toe) was also listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Clippers.
Wesley Matthews is available and expected to play Friday against the Kings.
Matthews minutes might be monitored, but he is expected to play after originally being listed as questionable.
Wesley Matthews nabbed 16 points (5-7 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block in a 119-112 win over Oklahoma City.
Matthews hadn't seen the court since January 28th and hadn't posted a double-digit night since the early stages of the very same month. The two-guard returned after a four game absence on Monday and proceeded to shoot the lights out, especially from beyond the arc. He shot 80 percent from three-point distance and made his presence felt on defense as well. His 30.1 fantasy points (FanDuel) were his most during this campaign, however, managers shouldn't read too far into his flash-in-the-pan performance as the shooting-guard has averaged a measly 10.2 fantasy points per game (FanDuel) this season.
Lakers guard Wesley Matthews is probable for Thursday's game against the Bucks as he deals with an Achilles injury.
It seems as if this injury that sidelined him three games in a row a week ago might still be bothering him as Matthews has only played 14 minutes each of the last two games. It is tough to trust him from a fantasy basketball perspective.
