Roy Hibbert (ankle) started vs. the Cavs on Wednesday but had only nine points, three rebounds and one turnover in 17 minutes of action.
The Cavaliers have been the toughest team for opposing centers this season, allowing the fewest rebounds and steals, and the third-fewest points, so Hibbert's dud isn't unexpected. He has zero blocks in February so even his 'specialist' appeal has evaporated. Feb 11 - 12:57 AM

Date:

Roy Hibbert (ankle) will start on Wednesday against the Cavs.

He was probable to play and should be ready to go. Hibbert has not played well at all and he will probably only be around 20 minutes tonight. There should be fewer minutes for Robert Sacre, Brandon Bass and Tarik Black.
Feb 10 - 6:35 PM

Roy Hibbert (left ankle) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers.

Hibbert looks likely to return to the Lakers lineup after missing Monday's game against the Pacers and will push Robert Sacre back to the bench. While Hibbert can help fantasy owners in with blocks, he has just one in his last four games and isn't worth owning in most standard fantasy leagues.
Feb 9 - 1:59 PM

Roy Hibbert (anke) will not play against the Pacers on Monday night.

It'll be his first missed game as a Laker and first since Nov. 29, 2014. With Hibbert out, Robert Sacre will probably get the start after starting the second half on Saturday. Brandon Bass and Tarik Black should also benefit.

Roy Hibbert (ankle) is unlikely to play on Monday against the Pacers.

No revenge game here. With Hibbert likely out, that should mean more run for Tarik Black, Robert Sacre and Brandon Bass. Fantasy owners probably don't need to make an add here while Julius Randle could get a couple more minutes again.
Feb 8 - 4:29 PM

Roy Hibbert (left ankle sprain) is still questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pacers.

Hibbert will want to play against his former team, so he'll do whatever he can to try and be out there. If he sits, expect Tarik Black, Brandon Bass and Robert Sacre to have a bump in minutes.
Feb 8 - 12:09 PM

Byron Scott said Roy Hibbert has "done everything he can do for us from a defensive standpoint."

Some might argue differently, but the Lakers defense is so bad that no one man is going to make a sizable impact. Regardless, Hibbert has really struggled in his first season with the Lakers, and as his playing time has dwindled, he's embraced a mentorship role with the younger players. Hibbert is questionable for Monday's (revenge) game vs. the Pacers due to a sprained left ankle, but you can bet he'll do his best to be out there against his former team. If not, Tarik Black, Brandon Bass and Robert Sacre will earn more minutes.
Feb 8 - 9:47 AM

Roy Hibbert (ankle) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pacers.

He sprained his left ankle on Saturday vs. the Spurs and wasn't able to return, but x-rays were negative and he is day-to-day. Hibbert will do everything in his power to play against his former team, but Brandon Bass and Tarik Black would soak up his minutes if he ultimately decides to sit this one out.
Feb 7 - 9:35 AM

Roy Hibbert left Saturday's game vs. the Spurs with a left ankle sprain and he will not return.

He was supposed to just get his ankle re-taped, so the injury must be a little more serious than originally thought. Hibbert hasn't been playing well lately, so he shouldn't have been owned in most leagues. Brandon Bass and Tarik Black will see an uptick in minutes if Hibbert misses more time. X-rays were negative, so Hibbert is considered day-to-day.
Feb 6 - 9:06 PM

Roy Hibbert picked up four fouls and played a total of 16 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Wolves.

He looked awful and scored just two points with one board, one assist and zero blocks. That's not good for a 7'2" center. Hibbert is averaging just 6.2 points, 2.4 boards and 1.6 blocks over his last five games, so he belongs on the wire in most formats.
Feb 3 - 2:03 AM

The Lakers tied a franchise record with their 10th straight loss on Sunday, as Roy Hibbert went scoreless with two boards and three blocks in 21 minutes.

L.A.'s previous 10-game skid came during the 1993-94 season and there's no relief in sight this year, as they continue to develop their neophyte core. Hibbert was 0-of-4 from the field tonight, and he shouldn't be owned if you want more than blocks with a handful of rebounds and solid FT shooting from the center position.
Feb 1 - 12:26 AM

Roy Hibbert actually played well vs. the Clippers on Friday, tallying 12 points on 5-of-12 shooting to go with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and one turnover in 28 minutes.

While it was nice to see Hibbert finally turn in a productive outing, he's basically been garbage over the past month with averages of 6.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game on 46.2 percent shooting, which has him ranking well outside the top 150 in standard leagues. There’s better shot blocking specialist out there.
Jan 30 - 1:12 AM

The Lakers are exploring the trade market for Roy Hibbert, Lou Williams, Brandon Bass and Nick Young.

The Lakers are obviously going nowhere in the West, so it makes sense to make some moves in order to open up some minutes for the younger players on the roster. Hibbert is on the last year of his deal, but moving his $15.5 million contract will not be easy. He is averaging a pathetic 8.4 points, 2.8 boards, 1.2 assists and 1.2 blocks over his last five games and is well past his prime despite being just 29 years old.

Roy Hibbert struggled with foul trouble vs. the Kings on Wednesday, finishing with just six points, two boards, three steals and one block in 16 minutes.

It was a terrible game for Hibbert to be watching from the bench, as DeMarcus Cousins simply had his way in the paint all night long. Hibbert has been dreadful and he's not even worth owning as a blocks specialist outside of deep leagues.
Jan 21 - 1:13 AM

The Lakers are reportedly open to trading away Roy Hibbert.

Hibbert's typical second-half falloff has come early this season, and over the past month he's been averaging just 5.3 points, 4.6 boards and 1.3 blocks per game on 38.5 percent shooting from the field, which has him ranking outside the top-250 in standard leagues. However, Hibbert's $15.5 million expiring deal may be more attractive to the Lakers franchise than anything they can get back, so a trade of Hibbert is not a certainty. Currently, Hibbert is not worth owning in standard leagues.
