Ronnie Price barely played on Sunday, coming off the bench for two points and one steal in seven minutes.
The former starter is banged up physically and his lack of offense may have finally cost him his role, as he's shooting just 29.4 percent in January. Anyone who still owns him should peruse the waiver wire for a replacement. Jan 26 - 12:05 AM

Ronnie Price is listed as probable for Friday's game against the Spurs.

He returned to the starting lineup on Wednesday in disappointing fashion with just two points and two assists, so owners should look elsewhere for production for now. Jeremy Lin would benefit the most if Price ended up sitting this one out.

Ronnie Price returned to the starting lineup on Wednesday despite a broken nose, but missed both his shots to finish with just two points and two assists in 27 minutes.

Jeremy Lin went back to the bench and had seven points, three assists, four steals, a block and two 3-pointers, but takes a hit with Price back in the lineup.

Ronnie Price (elbow) will start Wednesday's game vs. the Pelicans, sending Jeremy Lin back to the bench.

Price's elbow still isn't 100 percent but he'll tough it out as L.A. tries to snap their five-game losing skid. He's averaging 5.0 points on combined 6-of-23 shooting in his past four games, and is best avoided in standard fantasy leagues.
Jan 21 - 6:34 PM

Ronnie Price's (elbow) status for Wednesday's game is still up in the air, but coach Byron Scott said he would make a decision closer to tip-off.

Coach Scott also added that Price would start if he is cleared to play, meaning Jeremy Lin would head back to the bench. Owners will want to check back before tip-off before making any lineup decisions involving these two players. Stay tuned.

Ronnie Price (elbow) was a partial participant during Tuesday's practice, but he remains questionable for Wednesday's game against New Orleans.

Price has missed the Lakers' last two games with persistent elbow pain and his status for Wednesday is unclear, according to Mark Medina of the LA Daily News. Jeremy Lin posted a double-double starting in place of Price on Monday and would be a solid play on Wednesday if Price sits again.
Jan 20 - 10:41 AM

Ronnie Price (elbow) will not play against the Suns on Monday and Jeremy Lin will start.

This elbow injury is a little mysterious after he was probable to play on Friday, but the Lakers held him out. Lin was awful against the Jazz on Friday and he'll get a chance to redeem himself in a worse matchup. Expect to see more of Jordan Clarkson tonight, as well.
Jan 19 - 2:35 PM

Ronnie Price (elbow) is now doubtful to play on Monday in Phoenix.

This is interesting because he was probable to play on Friday and all of the sudden it sounds like he's going to miss multiple games. Jeremy Lin was awful on Friday in a start with six points in 30 minutes while Jordan Clarkson played backup point guard for 18 minutes.
Jan 17 - 3:31 PM

Ronnie Price will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Jazz after aggravating his elbow injury on Thursday.

Expect Jeremy Lin to draw the start tonight, and he'll have plenty of opportunity with Kobe Bryant (rest) also out of the lineup. The Lakers don't play again until Monday, so we'll consider Price questionable for that. Lin looks like a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues.
Jan 16 - 6:32 PM

Ronnie Price played 27 minutes on Thursday against the Cavs with five points, two rebounds, one assist and one steal on 1-of-5 from the field.

It wasn't a great game and maybe his sore elbow had something to do with it. Price had an MRI on Wednesday to make sure there is nothing structurally wrong, so he won't miss time. He's only worth owning in deep leagues.
Jan 16 - 1:20 AM

Ronnie Price (elbow) will start on Thursday vs. Cleveland, as expected.

Price had an MRI on Wednesday, but the results came back negative, and there's been no talk of a minutes restriction for today's game against the Cavs. Price is averaging 7.1 points, 4.1 assists, 1.7 steals, and 1.2 three-pointers per game as the Lakers' starting point guard, so he's not much more than a deep league asset.
Jan 15 - 2:30 PM

Ronnie Price had an MRI on Wednesday on his elbow and the results were negative.

He missed practice and is expected to start against the Cavs on Thursday. If he's limited, Jordan Clarkson will likely pick up most of his minutes with Jeremy Lin getting the start. Price has been a serviceable deep-league guy, so his owners can use him again on a short slate.
Jan 14 - 3:26 PM

Ronnie Price failed to score in 32 minutes vs. the Heat on Tuesday, going 0-of-4 from the field without any free throw attempts.

Price finished with two rebounds, three assists, two steals and two turnovers, and coach Byron Scott doesn't seem inclined to give more playing time to Jeremy Lin (16 minutes) or Jordan Clarkson (DNP-CD). That could change as the Lakers' lost season drags along, so we'll continue to monitor L.A.'s backcourt rotations.
Jan 14 - 1:06 AM

Ronnie Price dished out a career-high 12 assists vs. the Blazers on Sunday, adding eight points, one rebound and one steal in 33 minutes of action.

Price did all that he could to slow down Damian Lillard defensively and he shows no signs of relinquishing the starting PG job to backup Jeremy Lin, who had nine points and three assists in 18 minutes. Price has quietly been a top-100 value over the past month on the strength of his 3-pointers (1.6), assists (3.6) and steals (1.7), as well as low turnovers at the PG position (1.2), but he did get diced up by Lillard last night.
Jan 12 - 12:08 AM

Ronnie Price (nose) started in Friday's win and scored seven points with one rebound, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

Price has held low-end value best suited for 14-team leagues over the past two weeks, but he was on a bit of a heater at the beginning of that span. Keep an eye on him in 12-team formats.
