News: Kelly has a torn right hamstring and will miss at least six weeks, the Lakers' official site reports. Impact: Kelly tipped off training camp by immediately suffering a left hamstring strain, which has lingered in the interim. While he's poised to sit through the remainder of 2014, he's gaining notoriety as injury-prone following offseason foot surgeries prior to his rookie campaign last year. Even when healthy, though, he may have trouble breaking into a frontcourt composed of Carlos Boozer, Jordan Hill, and Ed Davis.(RotoWire, )

News: Kelly has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game with a right hamstring strain, Mike Trudell of Lakers.com reports. Impact: Kelly played in just five minutes, finishing with four points and three rebounds before having to take a seat with the hamstring injury. He's been restricted by the hamstring for the whole season so far, as he's only been able to participate in two games before tonight. He'll be questionable for the Lakers next game against the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday, but there seems like a high possibility that he'll be held out longer, considering it's the same hamstring being injured over and over again.(RotoWire, )

News: Kelly (hamstring) returned to action after missing three games to face the Spurs Friday. He came off the bench to score five points (1-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), grab two rebounds, and add one assist and one steal in 12 minutes. Impact: This marks just Kelly's second appearance of the season. It was a solid performance, considering the low minutes. It will probably take some time before Kelly can challenge for a better spot on the Lakers' depth chart, but if he does increase his workload, Kelly can provide threes, assists, steals, and blocks from the power forward spot. Given that unusual collection of skills for his position, Kelly can have significant fantasy value as long as he is seeing steady minutes.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Nov 14, 2014
News: Kelly (hamstring) has been cleared to play Friday against the Spurs, Mike Trudell of Lakers.com reports. Impact: Kelly has been sidelined for most of the season with a hamstring injury, but will be available Friday. He's participated in one game so far, notching seven minutes and scoring two points. He should offer depth at the power forward position, but it's questionable how many minutes he'll get, especially in his first game back from his injury.(RotoWire, )

News: Kelly (hamstring) won't play Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times' Mike Bresnahan reports. Impact: Kelly has some potential as a stretch four, but until he is fully healthy, he can be ignored in standard leagues. Consider him day-to-day.(RotoWire, )

News: Kelly (hamstring) has officially been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Grizzlies. Impact: Kelly has sat out most of the season other than the few minutes he saw in the Lakers' game against the Suns on Tuesday. Following that matchup, he went on to miss Sunday's game against Charlotte and now will now miss Tuesday's game against the Grizzlies. The Lakers play again Wednesday, so he'll have a chance to return then.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Nov 11, 2014
News: Kelly (hamstring) has not been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Grizzlies, but it's more likely he returns Wednesday against the Pelicans, Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times reports. Impact: Kelly saw his first action of the season versus the Suns on Tuesday, but he was back on the sidelines for Sunday's win over Charlotte. The hamstring issue is apparently still hampering him, so it appears unlikely he's available Tuesday, with Wednesday looking more optimistic.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Nov 6, 2014
News: Kelly returned Friday after sitting out three games. Impact: Kelly had five points and two rebounds in 12-plus minutes in a 93-80 loss to San Antonio after dealing with a nagging hamstring injury. He's appeared in two games this season.(STATS, 10:35pm)
