The Lakers will start Jordan Clarkson, Wayne Ellington, Ryan Kelly, Carlos Boozer and Robert Sacre against the Jazz on Wednesday.
Their second unit is thin with Nick Young (knee) out, so there should be a lot of Jeremy Lin and Jordan Hill off the bench. Sacre did only play 11 minutes due to foot soreness, but he's still not a reliable fantasy option. Feb 25 - 2:17 PM

Robert Sacre (foot) returned to practice on Tuesday.

The Lakers are listing Sacre as questionable for Wednesday's game against Utah, and if he's unable to, Ed Davis or Jordan Hill will have the opportunity to return to the starting lineup. Sacre is averaging a meager 6.8 points and 6.1 rebounds on 38.4 percent shooting with the starting unit, and he can't be considered a viable option in standard leagues.

Robert Sacre (foot) is questionable to play against the Jazz on Wednesday.

He had some foot soreness on Sunday and he won't miss much time. If he can't start, it'll likely be Jordan Hill back in the starting lineup.
Feb 23 - 7:39 PM

Robert Sacre suffered a left foot injury on Sunday.

He will undergo further evaluation today and the team should have an update. Sacre played just 11 minutes on Sunday, but was logging minutes in the low 20s before that game. If he's out, Jordan Hill will likely move back into the starting lineup and would be worth owning in standard leagues.

Robert Sacre fouled out in 30 minutes against the Bulls on Thursday with nine points, nine rebounds, four assists and two blocks.

This was arguably his best start of the season. In his previous three, Sacre averaged 6.0 points, 7.7 boards, 0.7 blocks and 0.7 steals in 25.3 minutes. He's probably not going to stick in the starting unit all season, but give him a look in deep leagues if those aforementioned averages appeal to you.

Robert Sacre will start against the Spurs on Friday.

He'll bump Ed Davis to the bench. Sacre has been a DNP-CD in five of his last six games and the book is kind of out on him. He can't defend very well in the post and is more of a jump-shooting big man. It's also worth noting that Coach Bryon Scott said Sacre is only starting because Tarik Black is hurt. He's not likely to have a big season and can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Jan 23 - 7:16 PM

Lakers C Robert Sacre had his most complete game of the season vs. the Nuggets on Sunday, scoring 13 points with three boards, one assist, three steals and one block in just 18 minutes off the bench.

He saw extra minutes with Carlos Boozer (shoulder) unavailable and Ed Davis in foul trouble and dealing with a minor ankle injury. Sacre hadn't played more than 16 minutes in a game all season and has struggled to gain coach Byron Scott's trust, which makes him a non-factor in all but the deepest leagues.

Robert Sacre played just seven minutes on Tuesday, going 1-of-5 from the field for two points.

He did have a steal, but if you have Sacre on your fantasy team you probably didn't do well tonight. He is slotted behind Jordan Hill and Ed Davis and will need a couple of injuries before he can be considered in any league.

Robert Sacre started at center for the Lakers on Wednesday and had 10 points, eight rebounds and four assists on 4-of-6 shooting.

Jordan Hill got the night off, but is locked and loaded as the starter, for now. Sacre will play off the bench, but you've got to be in a pretty deep league for him to even be on the radar.

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.
Sun, Apr 6, 2014 06:20:00 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.
Sun, Mar 30, 2014 10:38:00 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.
Mon, Mar 24, 2014 12:33:00 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.

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.
