Los Angeles Lakers Fantasy Spin

LeBron James (load management) is probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Hawks. LeBron was listed as probable for Sunday's game as well and tallied 18 points, 10 boards, nine assists and two 3-pointers. The reeling Lakers need to take advantage of a matchup with the beatable Hawks and rack up a win Tuesday night.

Atlanta Hawks Fantasy Spin

John Collins (knee) is not being listed on the injury report for Tuesday's game against the Lakers. Collins had been playing through a minor right knee issue over the past few games, but it appears he's officially put that behind him, so he should be fine for Atlanta's final two games heading into the All-Star break
