Top Taurean Prince News

  • Lakers' Taurean Prince: Back to bench

    Prince will return to a reserve role in Friday's game versus the Spurs, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

    Prince started in place of LeBron James on Thursday, but the latter is returning Friday. As a result, Prince should take on his usual reserve role off the bench.

  • Lakers' Taurean Prince: Tallies double figures in start

    Prince amassed 11 points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one block across 33 minutes during Wednesday's 138-122 win over the Jazz.

    Prince earned the start Wednesday due to the absence of LeBron James (ankle), Cam Reddish (ankle) and Max Christie (ankle), ending as one of six Lakers players in double figures in scoring to go along with a trio of rebounds. Prince has been a valuable role player for Los Angeles in being able to shift between the bench and starting lineup this season, something that has been key for instances like Wednesday with a list of players inactive. Prince has reached double figures in scoring in two of his last four games and in four of his last seven appearances.

  • Lakers' Taurean Prince: Starting at Jazz

    Prince will start during Wednesday's game against the Jazz, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    As expected, Prince will step into the starting lineup with the Lakers down LeBron James (ankle), Cam Reddish (ankle) and Max Christie (ankle). In 47 starts this season, Prince is averaging 9.6 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists. However, most of those starts came with the Lakers at or near full health.

  • Lakers' Taurean Prince: Moves to bench

    Prince will come off the bench for Saturday's game against the Knicks, Khobi Price of The Orange County Register reports.

    Prince had started in all 47 of his appearances coming into Saturday, but the Lakers are mixing it up with Rui Hachimura joining the first unit. Prince figures to be a key contributor for the bench unit with his floor spacing.

  • Lakers' Taurean Prince: Starting against Clippers

    Prince (knee) will start Tuesday's game against the Clippers, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Prince missed Sunday's contest against Portland due to left knee soreness, but it was mostly for maintenance. The veteran doesn't have any restrictions for Tuesday and will jump back into the starting lineup alongside Rui Hachimura and Anthony Davis in the frontcourt, with LeBron James (ankle) getting the night off.

  • Lakers' Taurean Prince: Not listed on injury report

    Prince (knee) isn't on the Lakers' injury report ahead of Tuesday's game against the Clippers, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    Prince was held out of Sunday's action against Portland due to left knee soreness, but he appears ready to return Tuesday. This is welcome timing for the Lakers, and Prince will likely be asked to shoulder a heavier workload than usual with LeBron James (ankle) already ruled out.

  • Lakers' Taurean Prince: Officially out Sunday

    Prince (knee) will not play Sunday against Portland, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

    Prince will be sidelined due to left knee soreness, marking his first absence since Nov. 4. Jarred Vanderbilt and Rui Hachimura are primary candidates to fill the void, although it's unclear who will enter the starting lineup.

  • Lakers' Taurean Prince: Questionable for Sunday

    Prince is questionable for Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers due to left knee soreness, Khobi Price of The Orange County Registerreports.

    In addition to Prince, LeBron James (ankle) and Anthony Davis (Achilles) are questionable, while Cam Reddish (knee) is probable. Prince has cooled off in January, posting averages of 8.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.8 three-pointers on 38.6 percent shooting from the field.

  • Lakers' Taurean Prince: Starting after all

    Prince will start Monday's game against the Thunder, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

    McMenamin initially reported that Jarred Vanderbilt would enter the starting five in place of Prince, but coach Darvin Ham later stated that he misheard McMenamin's question during his pre-game press conference and confirmed that Prince would remain in the starting lineup. Prince is averaging 9.5 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.5 assists through six January appearances.

  • Lakers' Taurean Prince: Retreats to bench

    Prince isn't starting Monday's game against the Thunder, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Prince will serve in a bench role for the first time this season, as the team has elected to roll with Jarred Vanderbilt at small forward Monday night. Head coach Darvin Ham noted in his pre-game presser that the Lakers will likely stick with this starting five for the "foreseeable future," per Khobi Price of The Orange County Register.

  • Lakers' Taurean Prince: Keeps producing on offense

    Prince registered 15 points (5-9 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), one rebound, four assists, two blocks and two steals over 34 minutes during Sunday's 129-109 loss to New Orleans.

    Prince's role in the Lakers' offensive scheme is to be a floor spacer and three-point shooter, and he's been nothing short of excellent as such. Despite holding a secondary role behind stars like LeBron James and Anthony Davis, Prince has scored in double digits in five of his last seven appearances while averaging 12.2 points per game over his last 10 appearances. He's shooting 42.1 percent from three-point range in that 10-game stretch.

  • Lakers' Taurean Prince: Drains five threes in loss Monday

    Prince contributed 17 points (6-13 FG, 5-12 3Pt), four rebounds, three assists and one steal across 39 minutes during Monday's 126-115 loss to Boston.

    Prince has been excelling as a three-point menace for the Lakers, and he drained at least two threes for the ninth game in a row. He's shooting 47.2 percent from beyond the arc in that stretch, and while his fantasy upside is almost exclusively tied to what he can do as a shooter, he's making the most of his chances of late. Playing with LeBron James at point guard while opposing defenses plan for Anthony Davis should also open up shooting opportunities for Prince, particularly from the corner three, which has been his bread and butter of late.
