Coach Byron Scott doesn't believe Ryan Kelly (hamstring) is coming back until after the New Year.

Kelly didn't see much court time as it was, but this is only going to hamper his chances when he finally returns. He has dealt with an issue in both his left and right hamstring over the past two months and just continues to show that he can't stay healthy. You can steer clear of Kelly in fantasy leagues.

Nick Young scored 13 points (4-14 FGA, 3-3 FTA) going 2-for-5 from three-point range with one rebound, one assist and two blocks in the Lakers' 99-93 loss to the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

After posting only 12 points over his last two games combined, Young was able to get off on the right foot Wednesday, scoring a three-game high 13 points. Those in deep leagues will want to keep an eye on Young as the season progresses, but until he starts to show more consistency, there is no reason he should be a starter outside of extremely deep league settings.

Jordan Hill scored 11 points (5-12 FGA, 1-2 FTA) with seven rebounds, one steal and one block in the Lakers' 99-93 loss to the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Hill faced a tough matchup in the post on Wednesday night as he went up against Marc Gasol, which resulted in only seven rebounds on the night. However he will not face off against this type of matchup every game, so fantasy owners should not look too much into this performance as he remains a double-double threat every time he takes the floor.

Jeremy Lin scored 14 points (4-9 FGA, 4-6 FTA) going 2-for-4 from three-point range with four rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block in the Lakers' 99-93 loss to the Grizzlies on Wednesday. 

Lin is now averaging 13.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 1.4 steals over his last five games which has increased his fantasy ownership well over the 50.0 percent mark. Although he is averaging less than 10 field goal attempts per game, as long as he continues to contribute elsewhere on a nightly basis he is a solid start outside of shallow leagues.

Kobe Bryant scored 22 points (5-15 FGA, 10-10 FTA) going 2-for-5 from three-point range with four rebounds and two assists in the Lakers; 99-93 loss to the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Despite scoring 22 points, Bryant's struggles form the field continued as he managed to convert only 33.3 percent of his field goals, contributing to his career-low 37.9 field goal percentage on the season. However, the Lakers top scorer is still a must start on a nightly basis, considering he is averaging 23.4 shots per game, which is going to result in high scoring nights down the stretch, even if he hurts some of the percentage categories.

Carlos Boozer (shoulder) will start on Wednesday against the Grizzlies.

Boozer will be starting on Wednesday against the grizzlies despite his shoulder injury. At 12.5 points and 7.3 rebounds per game, Boozer has been a disappointment in LA thus far. With Kobe taking as many shots as he is this season, it's tough to expect that Boozer's numbers will improve.
Analyst: Dom Murtha  View Profile

Boozer has played much better over the past few weeks and is averaging 14.2 points and 7.2 rebounds over the past 14 days.

Carlos Boozer (shoulder) will start for Lakers Wednesday night.

Boozer will start, yet his numbers are once again down this season and will most likely continue to regress for the rest of his career. Avoid him in your starting lineups if possible.

Carlos Boozer (shoulder) could return Wednesday against the Grizzlies.

Boozer didn't practice Tuesday, bringing about some concern with his shoulder injury once again. He'll try testing things out during the morning shootaround, so expect the Lakers to update his condition well in time for Wednesday's game.

The Lakers have been awarded a $4.85 million disabled player exception for Steve Nash according to a league source.

This move would allow the Lakers to sign or trade for a player using the exception but given the state of the team they will likely hold onto the money.
