Metta World Peace: Knee Improving

Rotowire.com
Update: World Peace's surgically-repaired left knee is improving by the day, the LA Daily News reports. On Monday, he said, "Every day it's getting back to normal."

Recommendation: After returning to the starting lineup Sunday against San Antonio, World Peace is now averaging 5.8 points (on 34.8 percent shooting), 2.5 boards, and 0.8 assists in 20.5 minutes over the past four outings. The output isn't especially helpful for fantasy purposes, but considering Kobe Bryant's Achilles tear, World Peace's presence helps keep the Lakers' rotation somewhat intact as they make a final playoff push.
