Brook Lopez played 19 minutes with 13 points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in against the Hornets on Saturday.
He didn't play in the fourth quarter at all to make it 10 times on the season. Julius Randle got hot and this isn't the first time we've seen coach Luke Walton lean on his second unit -- it won't be the last. Lopez's minutes have been a tough pill to swallow, but his fantasy game is friendly enough to roll with the punches. He's been a mid-round player on the year. Dec 10 - 12:49 AM

Date:

Brook Lopez was quiet again on Sunday with 10 points, five rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 20 minutes vs. Houston.

The good news is that Lopez has at least one blocked shot in eight straight games, and he's averaging 0.8 triples in that span. The bad news is that he hasn't played 30 minutes since Nov. 17, and was held to single-digit scoring in four of the Lakers' previous six games. L.A. has a variety of young options at center, including seldom-used Ivica Zubac, so Lopez's owners should basically be hoping for a trade.
Dec 4 - 12:27 AM

Brook Lopez scored 15 points with five rebounds, three assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday.

He really, really needed a good game. After a big 21-point effort against the Nuggets on Nov. 19, Lopez failed to score more than six in any of his previous four. Obviously Lopez's fantasy owners would love to see him do this against a non-Denver team and he'll get a shot to do so on Sunday against the Rockets. He'll need to have his A game against Clint Capela, though. For now, he's still a hold in standard leagues.
Dec 2 - 11:54 PM

Brook Lopez had another forgettable game on Wednesday with six points, one rebound and one assist in 17 minutes.

Kyle Kuzma (back) wasn't active tonight, but even with a depleted frontcourt Brook didn't get much run vs. the Warriors. The saving grace here is that Lopez is good enough on a per-minute basis to salvage value in most situations (he added a steal and a block tonight), but it's a far cry from what owners expected on draft day. He's also a combined 0-of-10 from deep in his past four games, which isn't helping matters.
Nov 30 - 2:48 AM

Brook Lopez played just 16 minutes and hit 2-of-8 shots for five points, one rebounds and two blocks in Monday's loss to the Clippers.

DeAndre Jordan was quiet and in foul trouble, but Bro-Lo still had trouble finding the court, as Luke Walton tries to find a way to get minutes for Lopez, Kyle Kuzma, Julius Randle and Larry Nance, who was back from his hand injury tonight. Lopez has been hit-or-miss all season, but mainly because of a lack of consistent minutes from his coach. Owners have no choice but to just hold on and hope that the Lakers figure out the most effective way to use him going forward.
Nov 28 - 1:16 AM

Brook Lopez scored four points with one rebound and one block in 17 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday.

The one rebound is rough, and this is his fourth one-board game on the season. Zach Randolph went off early and coach Luke Walton took Lopez out early because of it. Lopez continues to be a victim of game script and pace, especially in losses. When the Lakers win, Lopez has played 26.6 minutes per game, but that drops to 22.0 in losses. Annoying games aside, Lopez has been decent this month with 16.7 points, 5.3 boards and 2.0 blocks in his previous games. He could take a slight hit when Larry Nance Jr. (hand) comes back.
Nov 23 - 1:43 AM

Brook Lopez scored a season-low four points on Tuesday vs. the Bulls with nine rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in just 25 minutes.

His brother Robin won this matchup, posting 14 points on 7-of-11 shots while Brook finished just 2-of-10 from the field. He's had some awesome games this season, but some major duds as well with six games in single digits. Things are only going to get more frustrating with Larry Nance (hand) due back next week.
Nov 22 - 1:24 AM

Brook Lopez scored 19 points with 10 boards, three assists, four blocks and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes vs. the Suns on Friday.

He was coming off an 8-point dud against Joel Embiid and the 76ers on Wednesday, but Phoenix has been a lot more friendly to centers this season than The Process has -- the Suns have given up more points than any other team. Things will be more complicated for Lopez once Larry Nance (hand) returns, so his owners should be prepared for some frustration in Los Angeles' crowded frontcourt.
Nov 18 - 1:43 AM

Brook Lopez scored eight points with two rebounds, two assists and three fouls in 16 minutes against the 76ers on Wednesday.

He was actually building up some momentum, but Joel Embiid is just too good. Lopez gets a good matchup against the Suns on Friday, so his fantasy owners should have him ready to roll for that one.
Nov 16 - 1:35 AM

Brook Lopez was quiet in 21 minutes vs. the Bucks, scoring 10 points with two rebounds, one assist and three blocks.

Lopez has never been a great rebounder for his position, but his total rebound rate this season is a paltry 9.8%, worse than rookies Kyle Kuzma and Lonzo Ball. That may have been one reason coach Luke Walton gave more minutes to Kuzma, Julius Randle and a variety of small lineups tonight, and Lopez didn't play in the fourth quarter until 3:16 remained. He should fare better in Phoenix on Monday.
Nov 12 - 12:06 AM

Brook Lopez played 22 minutes vs. the Wizards on Thursday with 15 points, four rebounds, one steal and two blocks.

He was 4-of-12 from the field and knocked down all seven of his free throws. Lopez was playing well tonight, but the three fouls may have slowed him down. He's basically been splitting the center minutes with Julius Randle lately and played just 18 on Wednesday, as the crowded frontcourt in Los Angeles continues to frustrate fantasy owners.
Nov 9 - 9:58 PM

Brook Lopez played just 18 minutes vs. Boston on Wednesday, scoring 10 points with four rebounds, two blocks, one assist and three turnovers.

Lopez started the season in a rut, but he was coming on strong in three previous November games, averaging 27.3 points on 55.8 percent shooting, 3.7 triples, 4.7 boards, 2.7 assists and 2.0 blocks. L.A. fell into a big early hole before their reserves dug them out, which caused BroLo to sit almost the entire second quarter, and owners should shrug off this dud. He'll fare better vs. Marcin Gortat and the Wizards on Thursday.
Nov 8 - 11:27 PM

Brook Lopez scored a season-high 34 points in a 124-112 win over the Nets on Friday.

D'Angelo Russell got all the headlines about a potential revenge game, but Lopez stole the show for some revenge of his own. He finished 13-of-23 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line, adding 10 rebounds, two assists, three blocks and six 3-pointers in 30 minutes -- this was his fourth career game with 6 or more 3-pointers. He was coming off a 27-point game on Thursday, and Lopez's owners can look forward to some increased minutes and production with Larry Nance (hand) out for the next 4-6 weeks.
Nov 4 - 2:03 AM

Brook Lopez scored 27 points with three rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday.

His playing time was dropping in a big way with only 19.5 minutes per game in his last two. With Larry Nance Jr. (hand) out, now Lopez should be looking at more minutes because Julius Randle is probably going to have to play some power forward minutes. Before tonight, that Randle-Lopez combo was only used for seven minutes all season, so that's part of the reason why we've seen Randle take so much run from Bro-Lo. After a rough start, Lopez's fantasy owners should seem him bounce back as a possible top-50 guy until Nance is back.
Nov 3 - 1:34 AM

Brook Lopez played just 21 minutes on Tuesday, hitting 3-of-9 shots and two 3-pointers for eight points, one rebound, four assists and two blocks in an easy win over the Pistons.

Bro-Lo has been one of the bigger disappointments in fantasy this season and he's taking a hit with the Lakers giving so many minutes to Larry Nance, Kyle Kuzma and Julius Randle. He's also losing some run to Ivica Zubac and Andrew Bogut, which has led to him scoring in single digits in four of his last five games. He's averaging just 8.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 21 minutes over that stretch, which is incredibly frustrating for fantasy owners who drafted him as their No. 1 center. You have to think that the Lakers will eventually start using Bro-Lo for 30 minutes a night, but until it happens, he's not a lock for your starting lineup in weekly leagues, assuming you have other options. Even Alex Len is playing better than Lopez right now.
