DeRozan went ice-cold from the field Friday against the Lakers, going just 1-for-10 for six points, 10 rebounds, seven assists, and one steal in 41 minutes of action.

In spite of his lack of scoring contributions in Friday's game, it's encouraging for owners to see him go for 10 rebounds and seven assists. That being said, DeRozan is a scorer, and so owners will just have to take Friday's anomaly with a grain of salt and look forward to better games ahead.
