Boozer will be available to play in Monday's game against the 76ers.

Boozer has been rested recently by coach Byron Scott, but apparently will be at Scott's disposal Monday versus Philadelphia. Nonetheless, it's unclear what Scott's rotation will look like Monday, making Boozer a hard player to rely on in daily formats.

Boozer will be held out Friday against Toronto, Mark Media of the LA Daily News reports.

Boozer has been held out of the last two contests, but coach Byron Scott said that both Boozer and Jordan Hill, who is also being rested, could be back Sunday against Brooklyn or Monday against Philadelphia. The goal in resting both players has been to free up minutes for the likes of Tarik Black, Ryan Kelly and Ed Davis. Coincidentally, the Lakers lose their first round pick if it falls outside of the top five.

Boozer is expected to stay off the court for the next 4-5 games at the request of coach Byron Scott, the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Scott reportedly asked Boozer and Jordan Hill to sit over the next couple of weeks so guys like Ed Davis, Ryan Kelly, Robert Sacre, and Tarik Black could see extended time on the court. This already played itself out Tuesday against the Thunder and Boozer can be dropped across all formats as a result.

Boozer (ankle) didn't miss any time with a sprained ankle, coming off the bench Tuesday and grabbing 10 boards and scoring four points (2-6 FG).

Boozer's sprain was only considered mild after he suffered it Sunday. It's no surprise that he played Tuesday, and will continue to come off the bench for the Lakers going forward.

Boozer moved back to the bench Sunday in a loss to the Mavericks, but still scored 17 points (8-15 FG, 1-1 FT) and grabbed eight rebounds in 25 minutes.

Tarik Black started in place of Boozer, but Boozer still put up respectable numbers. This season, his numbers have actually been slightly better when he's coming off the bench, averaging 0.5 points and 0.5 rebounds more per game and he's shooting 52.7 percent off the bench as opposed to 49.3 percent as a starter.

Boozer will move to the bench for Sunday's game against the Mavericks, the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Coach Byron Scott continues to experiment with his rotation as he'll have Tarik Black and Jordan Hill man the frontcourt Sunday. Although, it's entirely possible for Boozer to reenter the starting lineup at a later date.

Boozer posted his first double-double since Feb. 10 in Tuesday's loss to the Hornets. He finished with 15 points (5-8 FG, 5-6 FT), 11 rebounds, and one assist in 25 minutes as the starting power forward.

Despite being a fixture in the starting lineup these days, Boozer has averaged just 11.8 points, 7.4 rebounds, 0.8 assists, and 0.8 steals in 23 minutes per game since the All-Star break. He's not playing enough minutes to be of consideration in standard leagues, but Boozer the Bear can still help teams in deeper leagues.
