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

Date:

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.
Feb 2 - 3:00 PM

Robin Lopez (hand) indicated on Saturday that he could play right now if he needed to, but said that it's not his decision to make.

He's been out since Dec. 15, so this is definitely a good sign that his recovery went well. Lopez likely won't return until after the All-Star break, so his owners should continue to wait patiently for now. If you have some dead weight on your roster, Lopez is worth a look as a stash.
Jan 31 - 11:52 PM

Robin Lopez (hand) attempted some shots before Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

He's still out indefinitely with his broken hand issue and is hopeful to play before the All-Star break. That's just a couple weeks away, so it's not a bad idea to stash Lopez in fantasy leagues, if you can afford to wait. Meanwhile, Chris Kaman will see a handful of extra minutes.
Jan 28 - 6:08 PM

Portland General Manager Neil Olshey said that he is hoping to have Robin Lopez (hand) back before the All-Star Game, but said that he wouldn't push it.

It sounds like we won't see Lopez back out on the court until after the All-Star break, and his owners will have to continue to remain patient. With LaMarcus Aldridge currently nursing a thumb injury, Chris Kaman, Thomas Robinson and Meyers Leonard will continue to pick up some extra minutes in the frontcourt for Portland in the short-term. Nicolas Batum and Dorell Wright will also see an uptick in shot attempts and minutes as well.

Robin Lopez said he is no longer wearing a cast on his right hand.

He's still expected to be out until next month, but he's making progress. Chris Kaman has benefitted the most and is worth a look in standard leagues. It'll probably be about time to stash Lopez in two weeks.
