In that five-game run, Lopez averaged just 5.2 points, 2.6 boards, 1.6 assists, 1.0 blocks and 0.8 treys in 17.4 minutes. He still has some value because of his blocks, but he's been a super bust in fantasy.

Advice: The reality is that Lopez is a terrible fit in the Lakers’ offense, and with no hopes of being traded (the Lakers want his expiring deal in order to have cap space during free agency this summer), there’s not much hope at all for improvement. He hasn’t been worth owning for a month, and it’ll be tough to extract any fantasy value in a trade, so we wouldn’t blame you for outright cutting him.

Advice: Yuck. He played well on Tuesday, hitting five 3-pointers for 18 points, but still had just three rebounds. He's been a disaster all season and got into some early foul trouble tonight, and didn't play much at all in the second half. Perhaps no player has been more frustrating to own in fantasy this season.
