Lou Williams has been hot, and the Los Angeles Lakers' clash with the Denver Nuggets is expected to be a high-scoring matchup. Which other low-cost options are in a good spot?

Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson (sprained right ankle) and forward/center Tarik Black (sprained left ankle) are being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Denver Nuggets. What It Means: Not much is known regarding Clarkson's ankle injury, but there should be more information after shootaround on Tuesday morning. Lou Williams, D'Angelo Russell and Brandon Ingram could all benefit from a potential Clarkson absence. If Black sits, Thomas Robinson would see more minutes. Out of 451 NBA players this season, Clarkson ranks 440th with a -3.2 nERD. He's...

Five things we learned from the Lakers' loss to Denver

Lou Williams says the Lakers are ‘going to get their ass kicked every once in a while’

The veteran sixth man dropped a truth bomb. The Los Angeles Lakers’ blowout loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday night led to plenty of reflection and self-criticism by the team. Lakers head coach Luke Walton said it looked like his team “gave up” because they didn’t feel like they had a chance against the more talented Spurs squad. D’Angelo Russell put the onus on himself, saying that the Lakers’ struggles started with him. It’s easy for a team to get down on itself after two big losses in a row followed a promising 10-game stretch during which the Lakers won four of...

Game Preview: San Antonio Spurs vs. Los Angeles Lakers

The Spurs wrap up a three-game homestand against the slumping Lakers. The Lakers were 10-10 in late November, with the air of a spry, young team headed for a surprisingly successful season. They were getting meaning contributions from a number of guys, including fledgling guard D’Angelo Russell, versatile big man Julius Randle and bench scorer Lou Williams. That’s when their season began to unravel, as they promptly lost eight straight. Since then, Luke Walton and company have won just five of their last 14 games. Both San Antonio and LA will be fresh off a loss heading into...

Lakers' Lou Williams knocks down five triples on Friday night

Los Angeles Lakers guard Lou Williams scored 24 points on 9-of-19 shooting with three assists, one rebound, five triples and three turnovers in 24 minutes in a 127-100 win over the Miami Heat on Friday. What It Means: Williams also got put on a poster by Tyler Johnson, but other than that it was a strong game from the veteran. He benefited some by Jordan Clarkson getting ejected, but it was going to be a strong game regardless. There is also a chance he could get traded before the end of the year, which could help his fantasy appeal. Williams is averaging a career-best 18.1...
Why the Lakers shouldn’t trade Lou Williams and Nick Young

Why the Lakers shouldn’t trade Lou Williams and Nick Young

Sweet Lou and Uncle P provide great value for the Lakers, and it should stay that way. After starting the season 10-10 the Los Angeles Lakers have gone on a cold streak, winning just two of their last 17 games. Much of the LA’s offensive success this year has been due to the resurgence of Nick Young and the stellar bench play of Lou Williams, but the long-term fit of both players is a burning question heading into trade season. Both players likely won’t have a higher value than they do now, but is it worth trading both of them this season? The case against trading Williams is strong....
