Robin Lopez, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, said that he would love to return to Portland next season.
"Nothing is 100 percent certain," Lopez said. "So far, I've loved my time in Portland. I would love to come back. I'm very open to coming back." Lopez struggled mightily against the Grizzlies in the playoffs, and Portland eventually started to utilize Meyers Leonard down the stretch instead. Lopez' fantasy value will largely depend on where he lands in free agency, and it's definitely possible that his time in Portland could be up. May 3 - 11:08 AM

Robin Lopez stated during his exit interview that he would like to return to Portland as a free agent this offseason.

"I like it here [in Portland]. I think it’s a pretty good fit," said Lopez. "I’ve enjoyed my two years here so far." Lopez also acknowledged that he really doesn't know what will happen during free agency, but he has put up some of the best numbers of his career as a member of the Trail Blazers. He did have a bit of a down-year this season due to injury, posting averages of 9.6 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game while shooting 53.5 percent from the field and 77.2 percent from the charity stripe. Still, he doesn't hurt you in any one category, and his steady contributions in shot blocking make him worth owning as a low-end guy in standard leagues.
Apr 30 - 6:45 PM

Robin Lopez was impressive on offense vs. the Jazz on Saturday, scoring 21 points with six boards, one assist and one block in 32 minutes.

The best thing about this line was the fact that he did it against the one they call Rudy Gobert, so his owners should be feeling pretty good about themselves. There is nothing flashy about his game, but Lopez has been consistent with averages of 13.0 points, 7.6 boards, 1.2 assists and 1.0 block over his last five games. Owners in standard leagues can certainly do worse.
Apr 12 - 1:30 AM

Robin Lopez lost the battle to his brother, Brook, against the Nets on Monday with eight points, seven boards, two assists and two blocks.

He was 4-of-11 from the field tonight for his highest shot total of the 2015 year. In his previous 23 games since the break, Lopez averaged 9.0 points, 6.4 boards, 1.3 blocks and 0.2 steals. All of averages are down from his pre-break numbers, so he's been a bit of a letdown. That's a little surprising because Ro-Lo was a stud after the break last season. He still leads the NBA in mascot fights, though.
Apr 6 - 9:29 PM

Robin Lopez double-doubled against the Suns on Friday with 12 points, 10 rebounds, one steal and one block in 29 minutes.

Revenge game? He had six offensive boards and put up his second double-double since the break. Lopez hasn't attempted more than eight shots from the field or blocked more than one shot in any game since Mar. 15, so his fantasy value isn't great right now. Hopefully this game will get him going. Ro-Lo is a fringe player to own in standard leagues.
Mar 28 - 2:37 AM

Robin Lopez had 16 points, 10 rebounds and a block in Wednesday's win over the Rockets.

That's his first double-double in over a month, although he flirts with them often. RoLo is averaging 11.5 points, 6.8 boards and 2.0 blocks in March.
Mar 12 - 2:32 AM

Robin Lopez has only a 12.1 usage rate to start the second half.

He is not really involved in the offense and his main job is to just hit the glass on that end. In fact, his offensive rebounding rate (11.2) is greater than his defensive rebounding rate (9.3). Low offensive numbers aside, Lopez is still worth owning in standard leagues, averaging 7.0 points, 5.3 boards, 1.3 blocks and 0.3 steals. Plus, he was tremendous in the second half last year.
Mar 1 - 10:25 AM

Robin Lopez continued his comeback tour in Houston on Sunday, making 6-of-7 shots to finish with 14 points, three rebounds and one assist in 31 minutes.

He didn't have any defensive stats and the low rebounds are disappointing, especially since Dwight Howard (knee) wasn't playing, but RoLo's owners have to be pleased with his play heading into the All-Star break. He's unlikely to attain the lofty top-50 value he averaged over the final month of the 2013-14 season but he remains a nice buy-low target for post-break production.
Feb 8 - 10:39 PM

Robin Lopez looked great against one of his former teams on Thursday, scoring 11 points with 12 boards and four blocks in 31 minutes against the Suns.

Besides some uncharacteristic issues at the charity stripe, Ro-Lo is off to a nice start in his return. His minutes were back to normal tonight and he had a season high in rebounds. Make sure he's not floating around on the waiver wire in standard leagues.
Feb 6 - 1:31 AM

Robin Lopez returned from his broken right hand on Tuesday, playing 25 minutes to finish a tough win vs. Utah with 11 points (5-of-9 FGs, 1-of-3 FGs), six rebounds and two blocks.

His return as a starter is a welcome sight for patient fantasy owners, and it spells the end of Chris Kaman's value in standard leagues. RoLo briefly left tonight after being cut above his left eye in the third quarter but the injury didn't bother him and he's safe to keep active for Thursday's game vs. Phoenix.
Feb 4 - 1:35 AM

Robin Lopez is expected to return after briefly leaving Tuesday's game with a cut over his left eye.

Lopez didn't require any stitches and the laceration shouldn't impact his availability going forward, to his owners' great relief.
Feb 3 - 11:41 PM

Robin Lopez (hand) will be in the starting lineup against the Jazz on Tuesday.

Coach Terry Stotts said that Lopez would play "significant" minutes upon his return, but that his minutes would likely be monitored tonight. Lopez should not be sitting on any waiver wires following this news, as the center can generate enough points, boards and blocks to make an impact in standard leagues. Meyers Leonard will shift back to the bench on Tuesday and can be dropped in most leagues, while Chris Kaman's value takes a hit as well.
Feb 3 - 8:19 PM

Robin Lopez (hand) is expected to play Tuesday vs. the Jazz.

All signs are pointing towards Lopez making his return to action tonight, and he'll likely start which will send Meyers Leonard back to the bench, and cut into the production of Chris Kaman. At this point, Lopez should not be sitting on any waiver wires in standard leagues.
Feb 3 - 2:58 PM

Robin Lopez (hand) is probable to play against the Jazz on Tuesday.

He has been going through contact in practice and the Blazers finally look to have their big man back. The Blazers have gone 2-8 in their last 10, so they'll look to get back to their winning ways at close to full strength. Chris Kaman and the other bigs not named LaMarcus Aldridge lose value. Lopez should be owned in all standard leagues.
Feb 2 - 5:57 PM

Robin Lopez (hand) went through some of practice on Monday and could return as soon as Tuesday against the Jazz.

He had contact in practice and there's a good chance he'll be able to play in all four games this week. Lopez doesn't put up many points or boards, but his contributions in percentages and blocks make him a mid-round fantasy guy when he's going strong. He should be picked up in all standard leagues.
