Carlos Boozer PF LAL 3 Days

Boozer posted a double-double in 25 minutes Monday against the Pacers as he scored 13 points (3-8 FG, 7-10 FT) to go along with 10 rebounds, two assists and one steal.

Boozer's move to the bench seems to be suiting him as he has posted three straight double-doubles. Ed Davis has does nothing to overly impress in his starting role, but Boozer may continue to come off of the bench just because he has performed well since taking over that role.

Boozer scored 22 points (10-14 FG, 2-3 FT) with 13 rebounds, both season highs, and added two assists in 27 minutes Sunday.

Since his demotion to the bench in favor of Ed Davis, Boozer has come alive, averaging 15.8 points and 10.3 rebounds in 27 minutes a game. Davis is struggling and Boozer is excelling in their new roles and Boozer is still valuable in 12 team leagues. If he was dropped in your league, he's worth a look.

Boozer scored 15 points (6-13 FG, 3-6 FT) and added nine rebounds, one assist and one steal in 28 minutes of play against the Kings on Tuesday.

This is a nice line for Boozer who is coming off the bench for the Lakers. There may be some value to be had here if he continues this type of production. If you are in need of some production in points and rebounds, this may be a sneaky grab for some owners, as many owners have dumped him after the news of him moving to a bench role.

Boozer will likely remain in a bench role for the next 10 to 15 games, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Boozer was replaced by Ed Davis in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Pelicans and finished with 12 points and six boards in 23 minutes. Coach Byron Scott said he plans to use the same lineup for the next 10 to 15 contests to give him a larger sample size to analyze, so Boozer is expected to remain the backup to Davis for the foreseeable future. While his removal from the starting five certainly isn't a positive, from a fantasy perspective, his minutes load probably won't decrease significantly.

Boozer scored 12 points (6-12 FG) with six rebounds and one assist in 23 minutes off the bench Sunday.

Even though Boozer moved to the bench behind Ed Davis, his production was right in line with his season averages of 12.4 points and 6.6 rebounds in 26 minutes. Even in a bench role, expect Boozer to give similar production, but if you are looking to move on from the much-maligned big man, there are certainly plenty reasons to go in another direction.

Boozer will come off the bench Sunday against the Pelicans.

Boozer is currently having the worst statistical season of his career and will give way to Ed Davis in the starting five. However, Boozer is averaging 26.3 minutes per game this season and could still be in line to see around that same total in a role of the bench Sunday, and moving forward.

Boozer scored 18 points (9-15 FG) with nine rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes during Sunday's OT win over the Raptors.

It looks like he's finally feeling close to 100 percent after his bout of shoulder soreness. Boozer is capable of providing consistent 20-and-10 production when he gets on a roll, so if he heats up take advantage while you can.

Boozer returned to the starting lineup Wednesday against the Grizzlies after sitting out Sunday's loss to the Nuggets with a sore left shoulder, but struggled, scoring just four points (2-6 FG, 0-2 FT) with six rebounds and one assist in 21 minutes.

Owners of Boozer will be hoping that the poor showing is more to do with the shoulder than anything else, as this pedestrian line was his worst performance of the season. For the season, Boozer is averaging 12.6 points and 6.4 rebounds on 48 percent shooting from the field and really only contributes in those three categories. If coach Byron Scott were to make a change to the starting lineup and Boozer was demoted, his fantasy value would evaporate in most formats.

Boozer (shoulder) will start Wednesday against the Grizzlies, ESPN Radio Los Angeles reports.

Boozer was considered a candidate to play Wednesday, and it now appears that he will indeed do so. With his return, Ed Davis will move back to the bench, with Boozer likely stealing a good chunk of his minutes. It's unclear if Boozer will be 100 percent, but he has averaged 13.3 points and 6.5 boards in 28 minutes this season.

Boozer (shoulder) could return Wednesday against the Grizzlies, with Lakers coach Byron Scott sounding "optimistic" about Boozer's chances to play, Eric Pincus of The Los Angeles Times reports.

Boozer did not practice Monday, and this is certainly no guarantee that he'll play Wednesday, but it's certainly good news for owners. Boozer has averaged 13.3 points on 49 percent shooting this season with the Lakers and has pulled down 6.5 rebounds.
