Los Angeles Lakers point guard D'Angelo Russell went 14-of-22 from the field on Sunday, posting a career-high 40 points to go with 6 assists, 2 rebounds, 2 steals and 7 3-pointers in 41 minutes of action as the Lakers fell 125-120 to the Cleveland Cavaliers. What It Means: Russell started at shooting guard with Nick Young sidelined on Sunday, making his return to the starting lineup after spending the past three games coming off the bench. He has averaged 18.1 points, 2.7 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.9 steals in 31.0 minutes per game in March. While Russell's -4.3 nERD ranks in...

Los Angeles Lakers point guard Nick Young (finger) is starting against the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday. What It Means: He was considered probable with a sprained left ring finger, but the big takeaway here is that he's getting the nod over D'Angelo Russell. Unless you're hurting for 3-pointers, leave Young on the wire. Our models project Young for 13.4 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 1.1 assists on 26.0 minutes. Source: Rotoworld.com

Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson will get another start against the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday. What It Means: D'Angelo Russell, Nick Young and David Nwaba have all started next to Clarkson in the past, and head coach Luke Walton says shooting guard will continue to be "by committee." Russell's fantasy owners just need to weather the storm while Clarkson shouldn't be on any waivers. Clarkson is projected to turn in 17.5 points, 3.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.5 steals and 2.1 3-pointers in 34.2 minutes on Friday night, according to numberFire's...

Bucks vs. Lakers Preview: Bucks Look for Deja Vu in the Staples Center

Following an exciting win over the Clippers, Milwaukee aims to keep its playoff push going After their exciting win Wednesday night against the Clippers, the Bucks are back at it tonight — and on the same exact court their victory over the Clippers occurred, as the team gets set to face the Los Angeles Lakers tonight at 9:30 p.m. CST.

Nick Young (left ring finger) probable Friday for Lakes

Los Angeles Lakers guard/forward Nick Young (sprained left ring finger) is probable for Friday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. What It Means: He was able to get some shots up at practice on Thursday and this isn't to his shooting hand. The Lakers gave him two DNP-CD's leading up to Wednesday, but then he flopped with an 0-of-9 shooting line in the loss to the Houston Rockets. Leave him on the wire. If Young can go on Friday, our models project him for 13.4 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 1.1 assists on 26.0 minutes. Source: Rotoworld.com

Lakers News: D’Angelo Russell left out of starting lineup again

Oh boy. Welp. Lineup-gate continues. Luke Walton raised eyebrows throughout the Los Angeles Lakers fan base Monday night when he started David Nwaba instead of D’Angelo Russell. Hours after of the game against the Houston Rockets, he continued the trend, this time starting Nick Young per Mark Medina of the L.A. Daily News. The logic behind this is pretty questionable. Now, the most sensical explanation is that Walton wants to see Jordan Clarkson continue as the starting point guard, but with the improved spacing that comes with playing Young in Nwaba’s place. This is fine, but when...
