Robert Sacre played 29 minutes against the Clippers on Sunday with nine points, 10 boards and four assists.
The Lakers didn't have Pau Gasol (illness) and Chris Kaman (calf) today, so Sacre was projected to see a nice amount of minutes. He's not really much of a shot blocker and doesn't offer enough upside in fantasy leagues. Apr 6 - 6:20 PM

Robert Sacre played 16 minutes off the bench vs. Phoenix, scoring six points and securing three rebounds.

Suns big men Mason Plumlee, Channing Frye and Markieff Morris couldn't defend Chris Kaman, so he got 32 minutes and reduced Sacre to a non-factor. Pau Gasol (vertigo) could return as soon as Tuesday, and Sacre lacks both the consistency and upside that might make him a good waiver wire option.

Mike D'Antoni heaped praise on Robert Sacre in a recent interview.

"He works harder than anyone on the team," D’Antoni said. "It’s not even close... His knowledge of the defense is good. He shores up a lot of stuff that we need. He’s our best defensive player." When your best defensive player, and hardest worker goes by the name of Robert Sacre, it's no wonder why the Lakers currently boast a record of 24-48. While D'Antoni may love Sacre's effort, it's anyone's guess as to when he'll get extended minutes, making him too unpredictable for fantasy relevance.
Mar 30 - 10:38 AM

Robert Sacre shifted to a bench role on Sunday, posting two points, six rebounds and one block in 23 minutes against the visiting Magic.

Jordan Hill took his spot in the starting lineup and promptly scored a career-high 28 points, so it's safe to say Sacre isn't getting his job back. He's barely made a dent in fantasy leagues this season and is an unlikely source of value even if Pau Gasol (dizziness) misses games.
Mar 24 - 12:33 AM

Robert Sacre started Friday's game against the Wizards, scoring 11 points with two boards and two assists in 18 minutes.

He did not start the second half of this game as a hot Jordan Hill took over next to Paul Gasol. Sacre's primary asset is as a pick-and-roll big man and the Lakers did have an impressive 32 assists as a team tonight, but his role is just too unpredictable to be counted on his most formats.
Mar 22 - 3:38 AM

Robert Sacre will move into the starting lineup against the Wizards on Friday.

He will replace Ryan Kelly and will most likely go up against Trevor Booker tonight. Sacre's defense has some major holes, but as long as he's able to keep Booker off the offensive glass, it's not a terrible idea for coach Mike D'Antoni. He is coming off a seven-point, 11-board game on Wednesday, but he's still a risky player to use in most cases.
Mar 21 - 2:07 PM

Robert Sacre played 24 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday with four points, six boards, one assist, one steal and one block.

He could have a nice game coming up on Friday with the Lakers likely to trade away some players and Pau Gasol (groin) also hurt. Sacre is worth a look in deep leagues just in case the team goes bonkers and deals away their big ean on Thursday. Of course, owners shouldn't be cutting anyone with reliable value because he's still Robert Sacre and is more known for his cheerleading than play on the court.
Feb 20 - 2:36 AM

Robert Sacre will move back to the Lakers' bench on Tuesday.

Chris Kaman and Shawne Williams will start in the Lakers' frontcourt, and with Jordan Hill healthy there's no reason to think Sacre will offer fantasy value as a backup.
Feb 11 - 2:17 PM

Robert Sacre played after he received his sixth foul on Wednesday against the Cavs due to injuries, finishing with 10 points, three boards and one block in 27 minutes.

This was one of the most exciting games of the season and Sacre was actually allowed to play with six fouls because the Lakers were out of bodies. According to the rules, a team cannot play with less than five players. If a player in the game gets his sixth foul and all subs have been disqualified, that player can remain in the game and be assessed with a personal and technical foul upon every following foul. Anyway, Sacre is worth a look in deeper leagues while Jordan Hill (neck, head) is out.
Feb 5 - 9:53 PM

Robert Sacre started at center and had 14 points, four rebounds, a steal and a block on 5-of-8 shooting on Tuesday.

Pau Gasol is out through the All-Star break and Chris Kaman got his first action in quite some time tonight, so look for Sacre to keep starting. He played fairly well, but was also responsible for Kevin Love's scary fall tonight. If you're desperate at center, Sacre looks like the best option on the Lakers at that position.
Feb 4 - 11:06 PM

Robert Sacre will start at center for the Lakers on Tuesday, joining a starting lineup with Ryan Kelly, Jodie Meeks, Steve Blake and Steve Nash.

Chris Kaman and Jordan Hill should get solid playing time off the bench vs. the Timberwolves, and it wouldn't be surprising to see Kevin Love have a field day against L.A.'s super-small lineup. Kendall Marshall has shifted to a reserve role with Blake and Nash healthy but he's also likely to log approximately 25 minutes, especially with Nash limited to roughly 10-16 minutes in his return. There is probably some value buried in the Lakers' changing lineup, but fantasy owners would do well to hedge their bets.

Robert Sacre logged 15 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Bobcats, scoring six points on 2-of-5 shooting with five rebounds and no steals or blocks.

Sacre got absolutely destroyed by Al Jefferson and this wouldn't normally get a blurb, but Pau Gasol is getting an MRI for his groin on Saturday and Sacre could find himself with a bigger workload pretty soon. It's also possible that Chris Kaman and Jordan Hill take over for any missed time by Gasol, which means that Sacre is just a speculative pickup in very deep formats.
Feb 1 - 1:52 AM

Robert Sacre scored 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting with seven rebounds and one steal in 18 minutes of Friday's blowout loss.

It's hard to take much seriously tonight but the result does give Sacre a bit more deep league credibility than he had the night before. Jordan Hill, on the other hand, had just six rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes.
Jan 11 - 3:08 AM

Robert Sacre did not score in 14 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday.

He added three boards and two blocks, but his weak defense probably cost him some playing time tonight. Sacre might be the second-best big man on pick-and-roll on the Lakers after Pau Gasol, but he's not worth owning thanks to coach Mike D'Antoni.
Jan 9 - 12:14 AM

Robert Sacre got another start for the Lakers Tuesday and had seven points, 10 rebounds, a steal and zero blocks in 28 minutes.

Sacre is worth keeping an eye on, but not much beyond that. He's averaging 6.2 points, 5.8 rebounds and less than a block and steal per game over his last five. Jordan Hill came off the bench and played just 20 minutes, finishing with nine points and five rebounds, meaning Pau Gasol is the only must-own big man for the Lakers.
