Boozer (triceps) is probable for Friday's game at San Antonio, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Boozer was also listed as probable prior to Wednesday's loss in New Orleans, where he posted six points (2-6 FG, 2-2 FT) and two rebounds in 20 minutes. Even when he busts out, though, he produces little outside of scoring and on the glass, as evidenced by his January output (9.3 points and 5.6 rebounds in 23 minutes per game).

Boozer (triceps) returned to the lineup during Wednesday's loss to the New Orleans Pelicans, coming off the bench to post six points (2-6 FG, 2-2 FT) and two rebounds in 20 minutes.

Boozer is averaging 25 minutes per game on the season, so he was still somewhat limited in his minutes. Look for him to possibly play closer to 25 minutes in Friday's game against the San Antonio Spurs. He's had a tough stretch of five games, averaging only 6.6 points and 4.6 rebounds, so he's been somewhat limited in his fantasy value.

Boozer (triceps) did not practice Tuesday but is considered probable to play Wednesday, Mike Trudell of Lakers.com reports.

Boozer sustained a bruised triceps in Monday's loss to the Suns - the Lakers' fifth straight defeat - but it appears he's sitting out practice only as a precaution. Barring a setback, expect Boozer to be on the floor Wednesday in New Orleans.

Boozer scored 18 points (9-16 FG, 0-1 FT) and snagged eight rebounds Friday in a loss to the Mavericks, playing 21 minutes off the bench.

Boozer has actually been a better fantasy option since being moved to the bench. In his nine previous games coming in with the second unit, Boozer averaged just under two points and over two rebounds more per game than in his 19 starts.

Boozer led the Lakers in scoring Tuesday night with 18 points (8-11 FG, 2-6 FT). He added nine rebounds and three assists in 26 minutes off the bench as the Lakers beat the Warriors 115-105.

Boozer continues to thrive in his new role coming off the bench. He is averaging 14.6 points and nine rebounds in 25.6 minutes in his last five games. He played more minutes than starter Ed Davis on Tuesday but it seems as though Boozer will continue to be a sub.

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.
