2018 Fantasy Outlook
Zubac split time between the NBA and the G-League last season, seeing 410 minutes in Los Angeles and 419 minutes in South Bay. Though he averaged just 3.7 points and 2.9 rebounds in the NBA, he was able to post 21.7 points, 9.1 rebounds and 2.2 blocks in the G-League while shooting 61.0 percent from the field. He also made sure to knock down an impressive 86.0 percent of his free throws. This year, he should have an opportunity to see more run at the NBA level with Brook Lopez moving on to Milwaukee and Julius Randle playing in New Orleans. The duo was replaced by JaVale McGee, who averaged fewer than 10 minutes per game last year, and late-first-round pick Mo Wagner. Still, it remains somewhat of a longshot that he ends up Fantasy relevant in standard formats. Read Past Outlooks

Bounces back with strong effort
CLos Angeles Clippers
February 14, 2019
Zubac pitched in 16 points (4-7 FG, 8-8 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one block across 22 minutes in the Clippers' 134-107 win over the Suns on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Zubac managed to avoid foul trouble -- never a guarantee when it comes to the young center -- to bounce back from a rough, truncated outing in his last game against the Timberwolves. The 21-year-old has scored in double digits in two of his first three games since coming over from the Lakers. However, despite the fact coach Doc Rivers appears firmly committed to keeping him as the starting center, it seems that Zubac's minutes might be typically capped in the mid-to-high-20s on the majority of nights, with the referee's whistle always a possible looming impediment as well.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
As a 19-year-old foreign center selected by the Lakers early in the second round last June, Zubac seemed like a prime candidate to be stashed overseas for a year or two before coming stateside, but the Bosnian-born big man made the surprising decision sign with Los Angeles and head to the NBA right away. With Timofey Mozgov and Tarik Black opening the campaign as the first- and second-team centers, respectively, Zubac rarely saw the floor outside of garbage time through the first two and a half months of his rookie campaign. After Mozgov wore out his welcome by mid-January, however, Zubac was given a chance to stake a claim to a rotation spot, and quickly made an impression with his advanced mid-range game and touch near the basket. He reeled off three double-doubles in a five-game span at one point in January and finished the season with averages of 7.5 points, 4.2 rebounds and 0.9 blocks in 16.0 minutes per game across 38 appearances. Zubac continued to impress during the offseason as a member of the Lakers' Las Vegas Summer League entry and should enter the 2017-18 season as the team's No. 2 center behind Brook Lopez, who was acquired in June. Zubac still has a ways to go defensively before the Lakers will hand the starting reins to him for good, but with Lopez bound for free agency next summer, there's a path to meaningful minutes for the young center in the not-too-distant future.
