2018 Fantasy Outlook
Hart, after four seasons at Villanova, was the 30th overall pick in last year’s draft. During his senior campaign, he was given the Julius Erving (Best Small Forward) Award, averaging 18.7 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.6 steals. He also flashed impressive range, hitting 2.1 threes per tilt at 40.4 percent. Hart posted 7.9 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists per contest for the Lakers during his rookie campaign, but was especially impressive towards the end of the year. During his final 18 appearances (13 starts), he averaged 14.1 points (50.6 FG%, 44.0 3P%), 7.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.0 steal across 33.3 minutes -- showing off the potential he demonstrated in college. However, he was given that workload largely due to a myriad of injuries on the Lakers. That factor, combined with LeBron James (plus other veterans) joining the team, could result in Hart trending closer to 20 minutes per game rather than 30. Assuming that’s the case, the second-year man can probably be avoided in most standard Fantasy formats. Read Past Outlooks

Hart received a PRP injection Monday and has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Hawks.
ANALYSIS
Hart has been dealing with patella tendinitis in his right knee for a few weeks now, so the Lakers opted to play it safe and shut him down with just one game to go before the All-Star break. The second-year guard out of Villanova will be re-evaluated after the break, at which point a more concrete timetable for his return will hopefully emerge.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
After leading Villanova to a national title the year before, Hart had an impressive follow-up campaign with the Wildcats as a senior, averaging 18.9 points and 6.4 rebounds per game while shooting above 40 percent from 3-point range for the second time in his college career. That production was enough to keep him in the first round of the 2017 NBA Draft, with the Jazz selecting the shooting guard with the 30th overall pick before trading him to the Lakers. Hart was limited to just two appearances in the Las Vegas Summer League due to an ankle sprain, but he should be back to full health by the time training camp rolls around. While Hart will be given a chance to compete for a rotation spot in the preseason, he'll likely find himself behind at least Lonzo Ball, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Jordan Clarkson on the depth chart right away, making it more likely than not that the 22-year-old rides the bench early on as a professional in between stints with the G League's South Bay Lakers.
