Brook Lopez scored six points with two rebounds, one block and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Wolves on Thursday.
Just when it looked like Lopez was safe, he lost a lot of run to Ivica Zubac today. Zubac isn't really a high-volume guy, so Lopez should still be able to hit minutes in the 20s almost every night. He also said he wants to stay with the Lakers, so he should still be owned in all leagues. Feb 15 - 11:30 PM

Brook Lopez had just eight points, three rebounds and two 3-pointers in 18 minutes vs. the Pelicans on Wednesday.

Lopez shot 3-of-9 from the field and was ill-equipped for this matchup -- Emeka Okafor brought more energy and physicality in the paint, and the Lakers simply had no answer for small lineups with Anthony Davis at center. Lopez was playing a solid 24+ minutes per game in February, prior to this dud, which is all owners can hope for rest-of-season.
Feb 15 - 12:02 AM

Brook Lopez scored 16 points with two rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Mavs on Saturday.

He was one of the biggest fantasy winners at the trade deadline because Larry Nance was taking a lot of his minutes. Lopez can be a top-50 player with minutes in the mid 20s, so his fantasy owners should consider him a must-start player again.
Feb 10 - 11:54 PM

Brook Lopez played 24 minutes and hit just 4-of-14 shots for nine points, nine rebounds and one block in Thursday's win over the Thunder.

He's actually played between 23 and 35 minutes in each of his last four games and is playing much better than he was, scoring in double digits in three of his last four and hitting 11 3-pointers in the process. He's still not a great rebounder and Julius Randle is still the guy, but Bro-Lo appears to be coming on with Larry Nance out of the picture. He's still a marginal center, but he could be ready to finally start performing.

Brook Lopez wants to stay with the Lakers for the rest of the year, according to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.com.

According to the report, there's still time for that to change, but if it holds, teams hoping he'd be available after a buyout will be disappointed. Lopez was a sneaky fantasy winner on deadline day because he'll only have Julius Randle taking his playing time, and not Randle and Larry Nance Jr. If he was dropped, go add him.
Feb 8 - 5:18 PM

Brook Lopez had another productive game on Sunday, registering 20 points on 8-of-18 shooting to go with five boards, four 3-pointers, five assists, one block and two turnovers in 35 minutes.

Over the past two games, Lopez has been earning meaningful minutes and he's responded with averages of 19.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 3.5 triples, 2.0 swats and 2.5 turnovers in 31.1 minutes per contest. Those past two outings have come against more traditional frontcourts, so it'll be interesting to see if BroLo can continue working with expanded minutes on Tuesday vs. the Suns. He's still not must-own, but he's done enough to warrant a speculative add in deep leagues.
Feb 4 - 5:31 PM

Brook Lopez busted out of a terrible slump with 19 points, three rebounds, three blocks and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

Chalk up another one for the revenge-game narrative. Lopez is the Nets all-time leader for scoring and he had a tribute video today. Great game aside, he was coming off another fourth-quarter benching on Wednesday with 16 of his last 18 games having that result before tonight. We'd like to see him do it again and he has quite a hill to climb.
Feb 2 - 11:12 PM

After playing just nine minutes against the Magic on Wednesday and not playing in the fourth, Brook Lopez said that he covered his face with a towel in the middle of the fourth to vent and hide his emotions.

"I mean, especially on the court, I can be very visible, with my emotions [showing on my face]," Lopez said about not playing in the fourth. "So yeah, just trying to control myself, breathe a little bit, and just keep cool because it was an unfortunate game for us." This makes it the 16th time in the last 18 games he didn't play in the fourth, so this is a clear trend. Lopez finished with just nine minutes and he's a drop candidate these days. Maybe a trade can save him.

Brook Lopez had another forgettable game on Wednesday with five points, one rebound and one steal in nine minutes.

The Lakers were blown out which gave them even less incentive to play their 29-year-old center, who is on a one-year deal and will hit unrestricted free agency this summer. He hasn't played more than 24 minutes in a game since Nov. 17 and his minutes could evaporate entirely late in the season -- the Lakers are already 6.5 games out of the playoff picture. There should be more appealing options on the wire.
Jan 31 - 10:22 PM

Brook Lopez posted eight points on 3-of-10 shooting across 17 minutes Sunday in Toronto.

Lopez wasn't having a very good night working against the likes of Serge Ibaka and Jonas Valanciunas, and his seven missed field-goal attempts tied his second-most dating all the way back to mid-November. He entered the game on a three-game tear, although he continues to see roughly 15-20 minutes per outing. That makes him more of a fantasy option in deeper leagues, and less of an option in most standard formats.
Jan 28 - 9:10 PM

Brook Lopez scored 17 points with six rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one triple in 20 minutes vs. the Bulls on Friday.

Brook has been a headache to own in fantasy all season, but he had some extra motivation tonight with his brother Robin trash talking before the game. "Just general, overall basketball IQ," Robin said when asked what Brook's biggest weakness is. "Actually, just overall IQ." Brook ultimately got the last laugh, hitting 7-of-13 shots in what was Los Angeles' fourth straight win. This was his first time hitting the 20-minute mark in his last eight games, so this doesn't move the needle much.
Jan 26 - 11:25 PM

Brook Lopez scored four points with five rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 16 minutes during a 99-86 win over the Pacers on Friday.

Make it five straight games under 20 minutes and just one game over 20 this entire month. In that five-game run, Lopez averaged just 5.2 points, 2.6 boards, 1.6 assists, 1.0 blocks and 0.8 treys in 17.4 minutes. He still has some value because of his blocks, but he's been a super bust in fantasy.
Jan 20 - 2:11 AM

Brook Lopez didn't do much in 18 minutes of action on Saturday, finishing with just eight points, three rebounds, two assists, two 3-pointers and one steal.

The reality is that Lopez is a terrible fit in the Lakers’ offense, and with no hopes of being traded (the Lakers want his expiring deal in order to have cap space during free agency this summer), there’s not much hope at all for improvement. He hasn’t been worth owning for a month, and it’ll be tough to extract any fantasy value in a trade, so we wouldn’t blame you for outright cutting him.
Jan 13 - 5:31 PM

Brook Lopez hit just 1-of-4 shots (a 3-pointer) for four points, two rebounds and three blocks in 18 minutes of Thursday's win over the Spurs.

Yuck. He played well on Tuesday, hitting five 3-pointers for 18 points, but still had just three rebounds. He's been a disaster all season and got into some early foul trouble tonight, and didn't play much at all in the second half. Perhaps no player has been more frustrating to own in fantasy this season.
Jan 12 - 2:05 AM

Brook Lopez hit 6-of-9 shots and five 3-pointers for 18 points and three rebounds in Tuesday's win over the Kings.

He got hot from downtown and hit a season high from beyond the arc, but the minutes still weren't great and this was his highest scoring game since way back on Nov. 19. He's tough to trust and the lack of minutes is a big concern, but at least he played well tonight.
