Robert Sacre is hopeful that the Lakers exercise their team option on him for next season.

"I would love to be back here. It would be fun," said Sacre. "You’re a Laker. What else can you ask for? There’s no other franchise like it. It’s an honor to wear purple and gold." Sacre has gotten some extra opportunities in the past three games due to the Lakers holding Jordan Hill and Carlos Boozer out of the lineup, and he has put up averages of just 3.7 points, 3.0 boards and 1.0 steal over that span. There is no denying that Sacre is a great teammate, but unless these numbers appeal to you, he belongs on the wire in most leagues.

Robert Sacre never left the Lakers' bench vs. Dallas on Sunday.

Jordan Hill, Tarik Black, Carlos Boozer and Ed Davis absorbed all the frontcourt minutes tonight and there's obviously no reason to hang onto Sacre in any leagues. Among other unflattering statistics, Sacre's 11.2 percent rebound rate ranks dead-last among true centers this season.
Mar 9 - 12:16 AM

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.
Feb 24 - 3:48 PM

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.
Feb 23 - 3:17 PM

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.
Jan 30 - 1:54 AM

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.
Wed, Oct 29, 2014 02:31:00 AM

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.
Thu, Oct 23, 2014 12:34:00 AM

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.
Mon, Mar 31, 2014 12:29:00 AM

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.
