  • Lineup Update: Lakers will start Caruso, Caldwell-Pope, Kuzma, Davis, Drummond on Friday

    The Lakers will run with the same starting unit that they did last night despite 4 members being listed on the injury report earlier in the day. Caruso is the only big question mark for the Lakers still as Coach Vogel said that he might not be able to finish the game due to a foot injury, if that is the case the other Laker guards will have to help out mainly Ben McLemore.

    Portland Trail Blazers

    Norman Powell (knee) will start Friday

    Norman Powell will be available and start on Friday when the Trail Blazers take on the Los Angeles Lakers. Powell who missed last game should return to his normal role in the starting lineup and see over 30 minutes. This will likely limit the minutes of Anfernee Simons, Derrick Jones, and Nassir Little who saw increased roles last game with Powell out. The main Trail Blazers that should be targeted are Lillard and McCollum who should have most of the Portland offense run through them as per usual.

    Los Angeles Lakers

    Kyle Kuzma, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Marc Gasol all available to play Friday

    Kyle Kuzma, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Marc Gasol will all be available to play Friday against the Trail Blazers. With the same players being available as last night we should expect the rotations to be somewhat similar. Caruso, KCP, Kuzma, AD, and Drummond started and all played about 30 minutes aside from Drummond who played 22 before the game turned into a blowout. Wes Matthews and Ben McLemore led the second unit in minutes along with Montrezl Harrell and and Markieff Morris who all saw minutes in the 20’s. Alfonso Mckinnie and Marc Gasol got some run but not enough to play a very important role. Anthony Davis, Kyle Kuzma, and Andre Drummond are the Lakers’ top options with Lebron and Schroder out and much of the offense should be run through them with Caruso being the primary facilitator.

  • Alex Caruso

    Los Angeles Lakers

    Alex Caruso (foot) will start Friday but may be limited

    Coach Frank Vogel stated that Alex Caruso will start Friday but may be limited due to a left foot injury. The Lakers are down all of their primary ballhandlers other than Caruso so they will likely run him as long as he is physically able to go, after that it could be some combination of Ben McLemore, Wes Matthews, and Kyle Kuzma that handle the ball. Anthony Davis, Kyle Kuzma, and Andre Drummond are the Lakers’ top options with Lebron and Schroder out and much of the offense should be run through them with Caruso, for as long as he can go tonight, being the primary facilitator.

    Anthony Davis (back) will start Friday

    Anthony Davis will be available and start Friday when the Lakers take on the Portland Trail Blazers. The injury list for the Lakers looked very similar to last night’s when they lost to the Clippers. With likely the same players being available as last night we should expect the rotations to be somewhat similar. Caruso, KCP, Kuzma, AD, and Drummond started and all played about 30 minutes aside from Drummond who played 22 before the game turned into a blowout.

    Sacramento Kings

    Harrison Barnes (adductor) ruled out Friday; Chimezie Metu will "try and play"

    Barnes has been ruled out with an adductor injury that has cost him the last five games, while Metu is listed as questionable with a back injury that has cost him the last three. Maurice Harkless will likely start again in place of Barnes; he played 36 minutes on Wednesday, and could be in line for significant starter minutes again if this game stays close. Delon Wright once again got the start for Tyrese Haliburton, and played 40 minutes and dominated the ball but has seen his price skyrocket to 6.8K on DK limiting his value. If Metu plays, he would likely take a few minutes away from Marvin Bagley and possibly Richaun Holmes as well. Wright and Buddy Hield should dominate most of the offense for the Kings with Holmes and Bagley also contributing.

    Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love (knee) ruled out Friday

    Kevin Love was a late addition to the injury report and has been ruled out for Friday when Cleveland takes on the Dallas Mavericks. With Love out Dean Wade will make his way into the starting lineup and Anderson Varejao will likely see some more minutes off the bench. With Kevin Love off the court the biggest benefactors from an FPM increase standpoint are Jarrett Allen and Damyean Dotson who both see an increase of .03. With Love out the Cavs players to consider are Allen due to an FPM increase and Wade and other Cavs depth as value plays due to increased playing time from Love’s vacated minutes.

    Houston Rockets

    Christian Wood (ankle) and Jae'Sean Tate ruled out Friday; Kelly Olynyk, DJ Augustin, Khyri Thomas, and Danuel House Jr. all available

    The Rockets will have the minimum eight available players on Friday when they play the Milwaukee Bucks which means every player should see considerable minutes. We expect Kelly Olynyk, Armoni Brooks, KJ Martin, Anthony Lamb, and DaQuan Jefferies to start and play somewhere in the mid to upper 30’s with the bench players seeing around 20 minutes or so a piece. Most of the offense should run through Olynyk, Brooks, and Lamb but every Rockets player that is available could be considered somewhat of a value play tonight due to the sheer amount of minutes they should be forced to play.

    Hernangomez will draw the start for Steven Adams and have Jaxson Hayes back him up off the bench, Marshall will enter the starting lineup for Zion, and Johnson will get the start for Ingram. These were the expected replacements after all the injury news broke for the Pelicans.

  • Joel Embiid

    Philadelphia 76ers

    Joel Embiid (injury recovery) will play Friday

    Joel Embiid will be available to play Friday despite being a late addition to the injury report earlier in the day. He is expected to start and see his normal workload which will limit the playing time that Mike Scott and Dwight Howard could have seen if Embiid were to miss. Ben Simmons and Tobias Harris who stood the most to gain from a usage and FPM increase perspective with no Embiid should see their normal rates. With the Pelicans losing so many players to injury there is a potential this game turns into a blowout so be wary of playing the sixers in this matchup however it is possible for the sixers stars to reach value in limited minutes.
