  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Impresses off bench Thursday

    Reaves amassed 17 points (5-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, seven assists and one steal in 23 minutes during Thursday's 133-89 victory over the Pelicans.

    When the team needed another playmaker, a big shot or a stop on defense, Reaves was there. Despite coming off the bench, he delivered an impressive outing on both ends of the court and was instrumental as the Lakers built a massive lead in the third quarter, one they'd never relinquish. Reaves is expected to play a key role off the bench once again when the Lakers face the Pacers on Saturday during the In-Season Tournament championship.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Strong second half lifts bench

    Reaves produced 20 points (7-16 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 106-103 win over the Suns.

    Reaves provided a spark off the Lakers' bench in a winning effort, leading the team in threes made while finishing as one of three players with 20 or more points. Reaves, who scored 16 of his 20 points in the final two quarters, recorded his third game of 20 or more points this season, and his first since notching a season-high 23 points Nov. 6 against Miami.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Solid total from bench

    Reaves finished with 18 points (6-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), four rebounds, one assist and three steals over 22 minutes during Saturday's 107-97 win over the Rockets.

    Reaves looked more like the 2022-23 version of himself Saturday, making shots all over the floor during the win. He also looked great last Thursday and had put up several double-digit totals with the second unit, but coach Darvin Han doesn't seem ready to put Reaves back in the starting lineup yet. Taurean Prince isn't playing well enough to keep Reaves on the bench, so a change may come sooner rather than later.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Scores six off bench

    Reaves supplied six points (3-8 FG, 0-4 3Pt), three rebounds, four assists and one block across 24 minutes during Wednesday's 133-107 win over the Pistons.

    Reaves had scored in double figures in five consecutive appearances leading up to Wednesday's matchup, but he couldn't connect on any of his attempts from beyond the arc in the comfortable win over the Pistons. He's had consistent playing time over his 11 appearances since taking on a bench role, averaging 13.7 points, 5.7 assists and 5.2 rebounds in 28.3 minutes per game.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Registers season-high 10 assists

    Reaves totaled 15 points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 10 assists, five rebounds and two steals across 32 minutes during Saturday's 121-115 win over the Cavaliers.

    The Lakers racked up a hearty 34 assists as a team in the victory, and Reaves led the way with 10. That was a season-high mark for the talented guard and allowed him to notch his third double-double of the campaign. Reaves is in the midst of arguably his best stretch of the season, averaging 17.0 points, 6.8 dimes, 5.5 rebounds and 1.3 steals over his past four games.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Posts 17 points in defeat

    Reaves accumulated 17 points (7-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds and six assists across 31 minutes during Wednesday's 104-101 loss to the Mavericks.

    Reaves finished as the Lakers' second-leading scorer in the contest, trailing only LeBron James, who scored 26 points. Reaves rounded out his versatile performance with six boards and six dimes, the latter of which was also the second-best mark on the team. The third-year guard has been very consistent of late, posting at least 17 points, five rebounds and five assists in each of his past three games. His numbers have improved since transitioning to a bench role eight contests ago, so it wouldn't be surprising for the Lakers to keep deploying him as the team's sixth man for the foreseeable future.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Strong game off bench in win

    Reaves finished Sunday's 105-104 win over the Rockets with 17 points (5-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds and six assists across 25 minutes.

    Reaves has thrived since moving to the bench and posted another solid all-around performance. Aside from flirting with triple-doubles twice in the six games he's played off the bench, Reaves has scored in double digits four times in that span. He's averaging 13.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 0.3 steals per game since moving to the second unit.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Another almost triple-double

    Reaves closed with nine points (4-10 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, eight assists and one steal over 34 minutes during Wednesday's 125-110 loss to Sacramento.

    A rebound and a couple of assists were all that separated Reaves from a triple-double. The resurgent play of Cam Reddish keeps Reaves out of the starting lineup, and the team doesn't seem ready to give him the load he enjoyed during last season's playoff run. He's worked his way out of his early season slump, but it will likely take a cold streak from Reddish or Taurean Prince for Reaves to gain any traction on the depth chart.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Flirts with triple-double

    Reaves notched 16 points (5-9 FG, 4-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 12 rebounds and seven assists across 29 minutes during Tuesday's 134-107 victory over Memphis.

    Reaves has been deployed off the bench for the past three games, but the move hasn't negatively affected his production. During that stretch, he's averaged 16.3 points, 6.0 assists and 5.7 rebounds in 30.7 minutes per game. Reaves' output Tuesday was probably a bit skewed, as he saw increased usage in the second half as the Lakers built a massive lead, but fantasy managers should still be encouraged about the third-year wing's recent production.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Coming off bench

    Reaves will come off the bench in Friday's matchup with the Suns, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The Lakers are looking to shake things up and will start Cam Reddish. However, Reaves will presumably still see a similar workload off the bench. It remains to be seen if Los Angeles will stick with this starting lineup going forward.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Sniffs triple-double in loss

    Reaves closed Monday's 108-107 loss to Miami with 23 points (9-14 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 10 rebounds, nine assists and one steal across 40 minutes.

    The Lakers came up short Monday and had to settle for a loss, but the defeat can't be placed on Reaves' shoulders, as he delivered his best performance of the season by a wide margin. The Oklahoma product has endured a tough start to the season, but given Anthony Davis suffered a groin injury that should make him at least questionable to face the Rockets on Wednesday, Reaves may have to handle a larger offensive role, presumably as the second option behind LeBron James.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Heats up down stretch

    Reaves produced 15 points (5-13 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists and three steals over 38 minutes during Wednesday's 130-125 overtime victory over the Clippers.

    Reaves struggled for much of Wednesday's contest, but he came up big when it mattered most, tallying seven of his 15 points in overtime. The 25-year-old complemented his scoring with seven dimes, seven assists and three steals in his best overall performance of the campaign. The Lakers will hope that the strong finish to Wednesday's OT victory gets Reaves going, as he came into the contest averaging a disappointing 10.0 points on 33.3 percent shooting from the field (including 25.0 percent from deep) over the team's first four games.
