C. Reddish - SF
Cam Reddish (right ankle sprain) did not play during the second half or overtime of Thursday’s win over the Wizards.
According to Lakers coach Darvin Ham, Reddish was experiencing some soreness in his ankle after playing 20 minutes in Wednesday’s win over the Clippers. As a result, he was limited to four minutes on Thursday, with the hope being that Reddish will be good to go for Saturday’s matchup with the Nuggets.

D. Avdija - SF
Deni Avdija (left heel contusion) tallied 15 points (5-of-10 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), 15 rebounds, five assists, one steal, and three 3-pointers in 42 minutes in Thursday’s 134-131 overtime loss to the Lakers.
Active after missing three games, Avdija played 42 of a possible 53 minutes on Thursday. He finished with his ninth double-double of the season, with 15 rebounds matching Deni’s season-high. While there were no issues with his injured heel, the workload could impact whether or not Avdija is available for Friday’s game against the Clippers. Corey Kispert was bumped to the bench on Thursday, but that did not negatively impact his production, as he finished with 20 points, six rebounds, six assists, one steal, and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes off the bench. Kispert will have streaming value if Avdija does not play on Friday.

K. Kuzma - PF
Kyle Kuzma shot 7-of-16 from the field and 2-of-2 from the foul line in Thursday’s overtime loss to the Lakers, finishing with 20 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, one steal, three blocks, and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes.
Kuzma had a chance to send Thursday’s game into a second overtime, but his 3-point attempt in the final seconds of the first extra session missed the mark. He’s recorded 20-point double-doubles in back-to-back games for the first time since November 22-24 and has scored 20 or more in six of his last seven outings. Turnovers have been the most significant issue for Kuzma recently, as he’s averaged three per game over the past three weeks. While Kuz has been a top 50 player in 8-cat during that stretch, he’s ranked just outside the top 75 in 9-cat.

J. Poole - SG
Jordan Poole played 37 minutes in Thursday’s 134-131 overtime loss to the Lakers, accounting for 34 points (13-of-26 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs), three rebounds, seven assists, one steal, one block, and five 3-pointers.
To say that Poole’s season has been a disappointment would be accurate, whether the focus is on fantasy basketball or that of the “real” variety. But he had a big night in Los Angeles, with the 34 points being the most he’s scored in a game this season. Poole has scored 30 or more in two of his last three and 18 or more in four of the five games he’s appeared in since being moved to the bench. Fantasy managers who have stuck it out this long with Poole should hold onto him, as retrieving value in a trade will be difficult. Given the season-long value, selling high really isn’t in the equation.

D. Russell - PG
D’Angelo Russell accounted for 22 points (9-of-21 FGs), six rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block, and four 3-pointers in 44 minutes in Thursday’s win over Washington.
Russell has scored 18 points or more in five straight and eight of his last nine games, a run that began with the Lakers’ February 5 win over Charlotte. Over the past three weeks, he is ranked 20th in 8-cat per-game value and 21st in 9-cat, according to Basketball Monster. While there were questions ahead of the trade deadline regarding Russell’s future in Los Angeles, he has played very well over the last month. He now provides top-50 per-game value in 8-cat formats while ranking just outside that threshold in 9-cat.

L. James - SF
LeBron James played 38 minutes in Thursday’s 134-131 win over Washington, accumulating 31 points (12-of-24 FGs, 5-of-7 FTs), four rebounds, nine assists, one steal, one block, and two 3-pointers.
James was back on the floor Thursday night after his fourth-quarter heroics in Wednesday’s comeback win over the Clippers. With his 31 points, he’s nine away from 40,000 for his storied career, which no player has done in NBA/ABA history. In a perfect world, the Lakers would have quickly taken care of the Wizards to get LeBron and Anthony Davis additional rest. That didn’t happen, but they did avoid losing to a team that is now 9-50 on the season. LeBron should crack the 40,000-point threshold early in Saturday’s game against the Nuggets.

M. Porter - SF
Michael Porter Jr. led Denver with 30 points (12-of-23 FGs), 11 rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks and four 3-pointers in a 103-97 win over Miami on Thursday.
After two straight poor performances, MPJ got back on track on Thursday. He had his third 30-point game of the season, with one of the others coming less than a week prior to this one. This was also just his second game of the season with at least two steals and two blocks. He did a little bit of everything to help the Nuggets secure the win in an NBA Finals rematch despite Jamal Murray’s early exit. He has been a top-20 player in fantasy basketball over the last two weeks and will look to keep it going in LA on Saturday.

A. Gordon - PF
Aaron Gordon posted a full line on Thursday with 16 points (5-of-8 FGs), nine rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block against Miami.
Jamal Murray exited early, and Nikola Jokic only shot 6-of-15 from the floor, but Gordon was still able to deliver a solid statline. Gordon has shot a ridiculous 69.8% from the floor and is averaging 1.8 steals per game over the last two weeks, which has allowed him to nearly produce top-75 value during that stretch. Gordon isn’t one to have big statlines often, but he has been a consistent producer this season. He’ll look to wrap up the week with another solid performance against the Lakers on the road on Saturday.
