Rajon Rondo made 6-of-13 from the field for 13 points with four rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday.

That's a surprisingly high usage for Rondo and most of his minutes came without Lonzo Ball on the court. Rondo did get minutes down the stretch with Ball possibly not 100 percent, but overall the Lakers first unit kept the team in it today. Rondo's fantasy owners should be encouraged after the first game.

Brandon Ingram scored 16 points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals, two blocks and one turnover in 28 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday.

One of the main themes of the preseason was him getting to the line, but he went 2-of-4 from there tonight. Plus, Ingram missed all of his four 3-pointers, and it was always tough to buy his 39.0 percent from deep last year. Those issues aside, Ingram will not have any problem getting minutes and he'll be an adept stat-stuffing forward outside of percentages.

JaVale McGee scored 13 points with eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and three blocks in 22 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday.

The Lakers needed a big body against Jusuf Nurkic as McGee gave the Lakers productive minutes inside. He'll never be a 25 minutes per game guy, but the Lakers' pace could make him useful in even just a 20 minute role. Besides Boban, It's always tough to count on a guy at 15-20 minutes, so McGee is more of a lukewarm pickup.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored five points with two rebounds and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes against the Lakers on Thursday.

Well, it was only a matter of time before Josh Hart looked to be better than KCP, but it turns out it took one game. Caldwell-Pope lost minutes in the second half and it feels like it'll be a matter of days and not weeks before Hart leapfrogs him in the starting lineup. KCP isn't a strong player to hold in most formats.
Oct 19 - 1:23 AM

Lonzo Ball made 2-of-7 from the field for seven points with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday.

He was primarily the backup to Rajon Rondo and played off the ball much more than last season. There are not many players who lost fantasy upside quite like Ball because of the arrivals of Rondo and LeBron James, Josh Hart looking like the best Lakers guard, and his knee issues since January could be monitored in the early portion of the year. He'll likely trend up, but his owners may want to temper expectations in the early going.
Oct 19 - 1:22 AM

Kyle Kuzma scored 15 points with five rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday.

He was the first player off the bench as the Lakers went with a small-ball lineup. The Lakers got away from using Michael Beasley at the five like they did in the preseason, so it would appear there are going to be a lot of minutes available for Kuz off the bench. He'll have better games than this one and he looks like a strong bet to flirt with 30 minutes nightly.
