Ed Davis scored 14 points (6-10 FGA) while adding nine rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in 33 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's loss to the Suns.

The loss of J.ulius Randle really helps Ed Davis. While Davis didn't start, he was much more effective than Carlos Boozer. He was one rebound shy of a double-double, and filled up the stat sheet last night. While the game was a blowout, he may not receive 33 minutes again, but it will be interesting to see in a closer game how much action he will be given. However, the Lakers have to keep a game close.

Kobe Bryant posted a team-high 31 points (11-25 FGA/ 2-4 3PA) while adding four rebounds, three assists and two steals in Wednesday's 119-99 loss to the Suns.

The Black Mamba has returned. He put up a nice game, and fantasy owners will be happy if he can stay healthy this season. Bryant is going to be able to score this season, but he has to stay on the court to produce. While he may not drop 31 a night, he should be able to score 20, and be a great reward for those who took a risk on the aging star.

Julius Randle underwent successful surgery for his fractured right tibia. Randle expected to make a full recovery, but is also expected to miss rest of the 2014-15 season.

Talk about an awful start to your career. Randle broke his tibia on Tuesday night and will now miss the remainder of the 2014-15 season. Randle didn't have a starting role this year, but he was expected to see his fair share of minutes for Los Angeles. That will all have to wait until next season, but Randle is expected to make a full recovery and should be ready to go next October.

Julius Randle is having surgery Wednesday on a broken tibia.

Randle is expected to miss 4-to-6 months to recover from surgery which likely puts his rookie season in jeopardy. The Lakers will release a better timetable once he comes out of surgery.

Ed Davis scored 11 points (5-7 FGA, 1-2 FTM) with six rebounds, a steal and two blocks during the Lakers' 90-108 loss to the Rockets on Tuesday.

Davis is probably the Lakers' best big man and most likely to absorb Julius Randle's minutes. While no Lakers big is going to put up overwhelming stats, Davis is probably worth keeping an eye on going forward and possibly even stash in deeper leagues.

Kobe Bryant scored 19 points (6-17 FGA, 7-8 FTM) going 0-for-1 from three-point range with three rebounds, two assists and a steal during the Lakers' 90-108 loss to the Rockets on Tuesday.

Kobe clearly tired as the game went on, as he started 5-11 before making only one of his last six shots. He'll score points as long as he's healthy, but age and supporting cast will drag his fantasy value well below that of the Black Mamba we remember. He should regain his legs as the season goes along, but at age 36 and coming off two major injuries odds are he won't come close to playing all 82 games.

Jeremy Lin scored seven points (1-5 FGA, 5-6 FTM) with two rebounds and six assists during the Lakers' 90-108 loss to the Rockets on Tuesday.

Given that his backup is the retread Ronnie Price, Lin will have every opportunity to play big minutes and score at will for the Lakers. He will more than likely improve when facing teams that don't have Dwight Howard. While he won't ever be terribly efficient, he should put up decent volume numbers as the Lakers' lead guard this year.

Jordan Hill scored seven points (2-7 FGA, 3-4 FTM) with 10 rebounds, one assist and a block during the Lakers' 90-108 loss to the Rockets on Tuesday.

Hill won't ever be a great scorer, but he'll get minutes, rebounds and blocks as long as he's on the Lakers. He'll usually shoot better than he did tonight and is probably worth rostering, but don't expect any fireworks from the Arizona product.

Carlos Boozer scored 17 points (7-13 FGA, 3-3 FTM) with seven rebounds, two assists and one steal during the Lakers' 90-108 loss to the Rockets on Tuesday night.

Boozer is entrenched in the starting lineup and will have every chance to put up numbers for a talent-starved team. His fantasy value is much higher than his real life value, and he probably deserves to at least be rostered in shallow leagues. His box scores are much prettier than his actual performance though, unless you're into players aggressively talking trash while down by 20 points.
