Fantasy Impact: In a brief announcement, the NBA "will use the hiatus to determine next steps moving forward in regard to the coronavirus pandemic." The league was suspended indefinitely after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19, per Shams Charania of the Athletic. It is unclear when or if the season will resume.

Fantasy Impact: Caruso has been dealing with hamstring and hand injuries the last few games, but is expected to suit up on Thursday. He is averaging 3.7 points, 1.7 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 0.7 steals across three contests during the month of March.

Fantasy Impact: Davis continues to battle elbow soreness, but is expected to play Thursday’s tilt. He is having a terrific first campaign with the Lakers, averaging 26.7 points, 9.4 rebounds, 3,1 assists, 1.5 steals and 2.4 blocks across 55 games this season.

Dwight Howard (illness) is available for Thursday’s game against the Rockets. (Source: Mark Medina on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Howard missed Tuesday’s game against the Nets due to an illness. He is available and expected to suit up on Thursday. Howard is averaging 7.5 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.3 blocks across 62 games this season.

According to ESPN's Dave McMenamin and Lakers coach Frank Vogel, "it's probably going to be a few games" until recently acquired Dion Waiters sees any game action for the Los Angeles Lakers. (Source: Dave McMenamin - ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: It remains to be seen if Waiters is going to have much of a fantasy impact when he starts playing for the Lakers, but it is no secret that the team could use more production out of the shooting guard spot.

Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Danny Green scored zero points in 25 minutes on Sunday, as the Lakers defeated the Clippers by a score of 112-103.

Fantasy Impact: Green is getting decent minutes for the Lakers, but he is not doing a whole lot of scoring. He has now gone scoreless in two of his past five games, and is averaging 8.4 points per game on the season. In the past, he was a lethal three-point shooting option. Now, it is probably safe to drop him until further notice.

Lakers point guard Rajon Rondo scored four points and tallied seven assists against the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Rondo's seven assists were second on the team, trailing only LeBron James' nine. While he only scored four points and missed both of his three-point attempts, seven assists in 22 minutes off the bench is a good night for Rondo. He might not be producing enough on a consistent basis to be rostered, but he could be a useful last minute plug-in on some nights.

Avery Bradley scored a season-high 24 points on 9-17 from the floor, with three rebounds, one assist, two steals, and six triples in 32 minutes in Sunday’s 112-103 win over the Clippers.

Fantasy Impact: Maybe a bit of a revenge game here for Bradley, as he played part of 2017 and 2018 with the cross-town rival Clippers. He took 17 shots Sunday, on his way to a season-high 24 points. Bradley hasn’t put up this type of scoring production for the Lakers consistently all year, but it’s promising to see him do so in such a big game. Keep an eye on Bradley in case he does have more games like this one.

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.

JaVale McGee scored five points (2-5 FG, 0-0 3Pt, 1-2 Ft) with 11 rebounds, three steals and one block over 21 minutes in a 113-103 win on Friday night.

Fantasy Impact: The Lakers center has only been averaging about 7.0 ppg this season and 5.8 rebounds a game but as a starter who plays 20+ minutes, it would be ideal for him to shoot a higher percentage from the field in the future.

Markieff Morris recorded eight points (3-5 FG, 2-2 3PT), four rebounds, and one assist over 19 minutes off the bench in Thursday's 116-86 win over the Warriors.

Fantasy Impact: Morris's role on the Lakers looks like it'll be significantly different than his role with the Pistons. Over two games Morris has averaged 17 minutes, 6.0 points, 2.5 rebounds, 0.5 assists, and 0.5 blocks per game. While it's a small sample size, it's tough to imagine much changing on this deep roster with Anthony Davis and Kyle Kuzma playing Morris's power forward position and ahead of him on the depth chart. In Detroit Morris was averaging 22.2 minutes and 8.6 field goal attempts per game but those days are over. Morris can be safely dropped in all formats as his ceiling has been lowered dramatically.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope registered nine points (4-8 FG, 1-4 3PT, 0-1 FT), three rebounds, two steals, and one assist over 23 relief minutes in Thursday's 116-86 win over the Warriors.

Fantasy Impact: Caldwell-Pope's new role on the re-tooled Lakers has decimated his fantasy value. 9.6 points and 2.1 rebounds per game are the worst averages the seven-year vet has posted since his rookie year. It's tough to find fantasy value in a player averaging those numbers over 25.4 minutes. Known as a great streaming option over the last few years, it looks like Caldwell-Pope's years as a fantasy-relevant player have come to an end.

Troy Daniels went for two points (1-4 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT), two rebounds and a steal across seven minutes in the Lakers’ 116-86 win over the Warriors on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: The journeyman guard saw his first NBA action in five games Thursday, logging seven minutes thanks to a 30-point blowout and the absence of LeBron James. On the season, the VCU product has averaged just 4.3 points and 1.2 boards across 11.3 minutes in 40 appearances.

DeMarcus Cousins (knee) was waived by the Lakers on Friday to make room for newly acquired Markieff Morris. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: It was reported that Cousins wasn’t close to returning and needed more time to rehab his torn ACL. The Lakers recently acquired Markieff Morris, which made Cousins expendable. Boogie will continue to rehab from his torn ACL as he hopes to latch onto another team for the 2020-2021 season.

Jared Dudley finished with just three points, two assists, and one rebound in 15 minutes in a spot start for Anthony Davis on Tuesday against the Pacers.

Fantasy Impact: Dudley remains off the fantasy radar despite Anthony Davis being out of the lineup.
