Ronnie Price is set to undergo surgery to remove a bone spur in his right elbow on Wednesday, and head coach Byron Scott said that he will miss the remainder of the 2014-15 season.

With Price sidelined, Jeremy Lin will likely soak up a majority of his reserve minutes and he's due for a boost in value. Lin has been playing well lately, putting up 25 and 18 points in his previous two outings, so he's worth a look in standard leagues for owners seeking some scoring, assists, 3-pointers and steals.

Ronnie Price (elbow) is available to play against the Nets on Friday.

He's not a lock to play and he does have multiple DNP-CDs. Price can be left on the wire in almost all leagues.
Feb 20 - 3:02 PM

Ronnie Price (elbow) will not play until after the All-Star break.

Price's elbow injury is one reason for his absence, but coach Byron Scott also wants to figure out his "best lineups" and apparently they don't include Price. His absence can only be a good thing for the value of Jordan Clarkson and Jeremy Lin, both of whom are nevertheless failing to provide value in standard leagues.
Feb 6 - 6:17 PM

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.
Jan 22 - 5:50 PM

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.
Jan 21 - 11:26 PM

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.
Jan 21 - 1:29 PM

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.
