LeBron James shot 6-of-11 from the field and 7-of-8 from the foul line in Sunday's 118-108 loss to the Bulls, scoring 19 points with eight rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes. While James shot better than 50% from the field on the day, he was also responsible for a team-worst five turnovers (tied with Austin Reaves). James came off the bench for just the second time in his career, with Troy Brown Jr. remaining in the starting lineup. Brown played well, finishing with 18 points, six rebounds, one assist, two steals, two blocks, and four 3-pointers in 32 minutes. But that isn't going to be enough to keep him in the starting lineup moving forward. The Lakers don't play again until Wednesday in Chicago, which should be enough time to get LeBron back into the swing of things.

DeMar DeRozan posted a solid line on Monday with 21 points (8-for-16 FGs), five rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two 3-pointers against the Clippers. After not doing much scoring over their last two games, DeRozan has able to get back over the 20-point mark in this one while still providing a full stat line. He's also been coming away with more steals as of late, as he has averaged two per game over the last two weeks. That has allowed him to provide top five value in 9-cat leagues during that stretch. With three games left this week, DeRozan should be able to continue to provide solid value. That will start with a home game against the Lakers on Wednesday.
