The NBA is a treasure trove of basketball talent who put on a show for a large number of viewers on a daily basis. In this game, a star-studded Los Angeles Lakers take on a rebuilding Houston Rockets. More about LAL vs HOU Dream11 such as injury report, stats, and projected fantasy points will be given here.
The Los Angeles Lakers have won four of the last five games and have somehow stitched together some strong performances. Well, is it a surprise with players like Westbrook, James, Davis, and Anthony? The team is still finding its chemistry and has depended more upon the individual than team performances. However, the wealth of talent can only mean that it is a matter of time before things click.
Houston Rockets are rebuilding and their win-loss record can suffer because of that. The team is supported by a ton of young players along with some role players, and this season is all about the development of the young bucks. With Porter Jr, Green, and Sengun as the young talent, can Rockets build something special long-term?

*last game stats*
LeBron James (LAL)
LBJ returned in the game after a two-game absence and straight showed his fire. The Forward is a significant contributor in all aspects of the game and the Lakers will keep receiving big contributions from him.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 47-62
Christian Wood (HOU)
Wood is an athletic Center and has been racking up big numbers for two seasons now. He has led the Rockets in scoring and rebounds a lot during this season and is heading for another big season with the Franchise.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 33-43
Power Forward Anthony Davis is known for his powerful two-way game. The Forward has continued to be a sparkling presence this season for Los Angeles and looks in great touch this season.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 45-61
Jalen is the number 2 pick in the draft this year. The rookie is averaging 14.2 PPG but he is shooting a mere 34.7% from the floor, including a 3/16 FG in the last game. But the Rockets who are not in a “win-now” mode can afford that and the guard can take his shots.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 30-39
Russell Westbrook (LAL)
Russell’s acquisition made headlines in the offseason, however, the guard is taking time to adjust. But that doesn’t mean he has not performed well, Westbrook has already had one of his routine triple-doubles as a Laker.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 37-56
Jae’Sean Tate (HOU)
Tate is a decent role player at the Small Forward position. He is averaging 8.6 PPG, 6.6 RPG this season.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 30-43
Carmelo Anthony (LAL)
Anthony gives the Lakers what they lacked last season, i.e. perimeter shooting. He is coming off a superb 6/8 night from the three-point line and has scored 20+ points twice this season already.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 21-32
Gordon continues to be a factor on offense is averaging an impressive 13.8 PPG this season for the Rockets. Perhaps he will long to play for a Playoff team sooner than later?
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 26-32
Jordan may not play a ton of minutes for the Lakers but he shows the tendency to throw down some dunks and grab quick rebounds.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 13-22
As a rookie Alperen has come across some decent nights. He may see more time ahead in the season.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 17-27
As a deep bench player, Austin has made a case for playing more minutes in recent games.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 09-16
OTHER MAJOR PICKS
Daniel Theis (HOU) poured in 7 points, 3 rebounds 1 steal, 1 block in the last game.
