Fantasy Update

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...

Lakers Highlights: Ivica Zubac blocks Nikola Jokic to make his case for Rookie of the Year

Lakers Highlights: Ivica Zubac blocks Nikola Jokic to make his case for Rookie of the Year

#NBAVote. Ivica Zubac was a fan favorite before he ever played a game fro the Los Angeles Lakers, and his play on the court has pretty much justified the early hype. The Lakers needed defense, and head coach Luke Walton seems to have replaced Thomas Robinson’s minutes with a heavy dose of Zubac. His young center rewarded him by blocking one of the best young big men in the league (Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets) straight-up off the dribble: #Zublocka protecting the rim ( : @SpectrumSN & @spectdeportes) pic.twitter.com/qyONXdUZAn— Los Angeles Lakers (@Lakers) January 18,...

Lakers Highlights: Thomas Robinson builds a wall around the rim

You shall not pass, Ed Davis. Former Laker Ed Davis doesn’t have a lot of reasons to be upset with the Los Angeles Lakers, but if he wanted a #RevengeGame, Thomas Robinson wasn’t going to be the one to allow it: Thomas Robinson with a monster block! #NBAVote ( : @SpectrumSN & @spectdeportes) pic.twitter.com/O1B967akhT— Los Angeles Lakers (@Lakers) January 11, 2017 Robinson has earned rave reviews from teammates for being a nice guy off the court, but it doesn’t transfer when asked to defend the rim.

Lakers' Thomas Robinson, Metta World Peace to have guaranteed contracts

Lakers' Thomas Robinson, Metta World Peace to have guaranteed contracts

LOS ANGELES – As the Lakers aim to develop their young roster, they have decided to retain an emerging young forward and a veteran fan favorite. The Lakers plan to keep reserve forwards Thomas Robinson and Metta World Peace past Jan. 10 when their...
Lakers guarantee Metta World Peace and Thomas Robinson’s contracts

Lakers guarantee Metta World Peace and Thomas Robinson’s contracts

One of those things is a smart decision. Saturday afternoon was the last day to waive players whose contracts were not guaranteed before they became such and the Los Angeles Lakers did not waive anyone, giving Metta World Peace and Thomas Robinson have plenty of reason to celebrate. Before I get into analyzing the lack of a decision on those two, I do want to point out how cool a moment like that must be. So, congratulations to both Peace and Robinson on what just became a pretty cool day. Now, with that out of the way... Metta World Peace should not be on an NBA roster in 2017. There’s...
Lakers will reportedly keep Thomas Robinson, may waive Metta World Peace

Lakers will reportedly keep Thomas Robinson, may waive Metta World Peace

World Peace may not exist in Los Angeles after Saturday. The final chance NBA teams have to cut contracts that aren’t full guaranteed is officially January 10th, but as Bobby Marks of the Vertical notes, the effective deadline is January 7th at 5 p.m. ET because they have to allow 48-hours for the players to clear waivers. The Los Angeles Lakers have two such players on their roster: forwards Thomas Robinson and Metta World Peace. While Robinson has earned a role in the Lakers’ rotation (in part due to injuries and partially due to his own play), World Peace has played just 71 minutes...

The always-hustling T-Rob at work. Thomas Robinson continues proving his value for the Los Angeles Lakers, even putting on his best Julius Randle impression on defense with a nice breakaway dunk against the Portland Trail Blazers: Thomas Robinson steals the pass and slams it down in transition #NBAVote ( : @SpectrumSN, @spectdeportes & TNT) pic.twitter.com/5szf2OmsfG— Los Angeles Lakers (@Lakers) January 6, 2017 And a little Run the Jules, as one of the many points of reference he’s provided this season: Gotta love having an array of athletic power forwards who can...

Thomas Robinson and Tarik Black brought the boom for the Lakers

Two Kansas Jayhawks sitting at the rim, R-E-B-O-U-N-DING. The Los Angeles Lakers’ frontcourt rotation is far from being stable, especially with the absence of Larry Nance, Jr. Thomas Robinson has gone above and beyond expectations filling in for Nance, Jr., hitting the glass hard and playing with the same reckless abandon that earned him the Lakers’ final roster spot. LA fully harnessed that level of energy by lining him up with Tarik Black, and what transpired over a five-minute stretch in the first half was nothing short of miraculous. The lone five minute stretch serves as the...

Thomas Robinson says the Lakers can't use youth as an excuse for losing

Thomas Robinson says the Lakers can't use youth as an excuse for losing

T-Rob didn't hold back after Los Angeles' latest loss. Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton took a measured tone after the team's latest loss, a 101-89 defeat at the hands of the Dallas Mavericks. Walton said the team is going to be fine, and that it may just take a few years for them to be good again. It was a subtle challenge to his young charges while also being a public acknowledgement of the youth on their roster. With the Lakers going an NBA-worst 2-14 in the month of Decmber while falling prey to second half collapses nearly every night, reserve big man Thomas Robinson doesn't...

Can the Lakers build some momentum before the year comes to a close? Tune in to find out!
