Los Angeles Lakers Fantasy Spin

LeBron James (left groin) is increasing his on-court activity and will have another injury update on Jan. 16. LeBron was already ruled out for Friday, but this means he'll also miss home games on Sunday (vs. Cleveland) and Tuesday (vs. Chicago). Depending upon the next injury update, he could be activated for road games on Jan. 17 and 19. Until then, Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram will carry the scoring load with Josh Hart soaking up huge minutes and Lonzo Ball enjoying plenty of time on-ball.

Utah Jazz Fantasy Spin

Donovan Mitchell lit up the Magic for 33 points on 12-of-21 shooting during Wednesday's home win, adding seven assists, four rebounds and one steal. Mitchell was 4-of-7 from deep and 5-of-6 from the line tonight, with just two turnovers, and he's really starting to heat up with 26+ points in three straight games. His importance to the team can't be overstated -- the Jazz are now 13-2 when he shoots at least 44.0% from the field, and they're 8-0 when he shoots that well and has at least five assists. Fantasy owners' patience is paying off in the New Year.
