Date:

Metta World Peace will move back to the bench on Wednesday.

He may not be in the rotation tonight after only getting 12 minutes in his start on Monday. World Peace has almost no fantasy value.
Dec 7 - 8:00 PM

Metta World Peace started at SG against the Jazz on Monday, but only played 12 minutes and scored four points with one assist and one rebound.

He started with Jose Calderon (hamstring) out. MWP is basically just a placeholder in the first unit and he's not going to play more than a handful of minutes.
Dec 6 - 1:20 AM

Metta World Peace will start in the backcourt alongside Brandon Ingram on Monday vs. the Jazz.

Jose Calderon (hamstring) is out 2-4 weeks, while D'Angelo Russell (knee) will be re-evaluated on Tuesday. MWP is basically in the starting five in order to keep Jordan Clarkson and Lou Williams with the second unit. Brandon Ingram will draw the start at point guard.
Dec 5 - 10:29 PM

Metta World Peace has made the Lakers opening night roster.

The Lakers announced that they were waiving Anthony Brown, which means that World Peace has secured a spot on LA's final 15-man roster. He will be buried on the depth chart in LA, and has very little chance of having any fantasy impact this season.

Metta World Peace is hoping to play for three more seasons.

Some of us hope to be taller, some of us hop to be richer, while others hope to freeze the precious gift of time. In MWP's case, if he wants to play three more years, he will have to finish his career outside of the NBA.
Oct 8 - 7:09 PM

Lakers sign G/F Metta World Peace.

He's the 20th player on the training camp roster, so he's not a lock to make the final 15.
Sep 23 - 6:57 PM

Metta World Peace has reportedly reached an agreement on a deal to re-sign with the Lakers.

MWP will continue to help tutor guys like Julius Randle and Brandon Ingram, but his value will be non-existent in fantasy hoops while the team is at full strength.
Sep 21 - 2:15 PM

Metta World Peace is confident that he can still play at an NBA level.

While MWP has an eye towards coaching, he thinks he can contribute to an NBA roster. "I’m waiting for teams," World Peace said. "I can still play. I can play, it’s not even a question man." While World Peace could still hook on with an NBA team, he's firmly off the fantasy radar.

Metta World Peace said he's not ready to retire just yet.

World Peace said he'd like to play 2-4 more years in the NBA, but added that would depend on the market. MWP's timetable would take him close or up to his 40th birthday, so his goal is quite a lofty one after he appeared in just 31 games in 2015-16. While MWP might not be done with the NBA, he's no longer on the fantasy radar.
Apr 14 - 1:36 PM

Metta World Peace scored a season-high 17 points with five boards, one assist, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 19 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Clippers.

Where did that come from? Keep in mind that this game was a blowout, but maybe MWP wants to prove that he can still play in the NBA for a couple more years. To be clear, don't pick him up in any format. He was a DNP-CD in the Lakers' previous two games.
Apr 6 - 1:38 AM

Metta World Peace said that he wants to play in the NBA for 2-4 more years.

"I think I can still play in the league. I feel good. I feel like I was able to guard and able to post," World Peace said. "I feel like I answered a lot of questions." MWP is averaging just 4.5 points in 16.6 minutes through 31 games, so the 36-year-old veteran may struggle to find a new deal this summer.
Apr 3 - 10:01 AM

Metta World Peace was tossed from Tuesday's game vs. the Grizzlies for arguing with an official.

He lives for these moments. MWP finished with two points, one board and one steal in 13 minutes and is not on the fantasy radar.
Mar 23 - 12:38 AM

Metta World Peace started on Tuesday vs. the Kings, finishing with two points, two boards and one assist in 19 minutes.

He was just 1-of-6 from the field and had a couple of turnovers. He averaged 11.7 points, 2.3 triples, 2.0 boards, 0.7 steals and 1.0 blocks in three previous starts this season, so this was still a letdown. Kobe Bryant (shoulder) is day-to-day, so leave MWP on the wire.
Mar 16 - 1:04 AM

Metta World Peace will start on Tuesday vs. the Kings.

Kobe Bryant (shoulder) is sitting this one out and is day-to-day moving forward. MWP averaged 11.7 points, 2.3 triples, 2.0 boards, 0.7 steals and 1.0 blocks in three previous starts this season, so he's nothing more than a punt play in DFS.
