Top Lakers News

  • Lakers' Russell Westbrook: Dishes team-high 10 assists

    Westbrook recorded 10 points (2-16 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 6-8 FT), three rebounds and 10 assists in 32 minutes during Thursday's 112-111 win over Indiana.

    After knocking down two of his four shot attempts in the first quarter, Westbrook went 0-of-12 from the field over the next three quarters to finish with just 10 points off the bench. The point guard did, however, dish out a team-high 10 assists in the contest, seven of which came in the second half to help the Lakers escape with the road win. Westbrook has now recorded 10 assists in two of his last three games, though he's shooting just 31.8 percent from the field over that brief stretch.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Efficient shooting in win

    James notched 26 points (11-19 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and seven assists over 33 minutes during Thursday's 112-111 win over the Pacers.

    James shot the ball extremely well outside of the first quarter where he went 1-of-4 for just three points. From the second quarter on he shot 66.6 percent from the field to finish with 26 points on the night, adding seven rebounds and seven assists. Nine of his points came in the fourth quarter on 3-of-5 shooting as the Lakers narrowly escaped with the win over Indiana. James has now scored at least 25 points in eight of his last 10 games, shooting 51.6 percent from the field over that stretch.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Leads contest in points, rebounds

    Davis chipped in 31 points (13-27 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 14 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal across 35 minutes during Thursday's 112-111 victory over Indiana.

    Davis led the Lakers' offense right from the jump, scoring 17 points in the first half, 11 of which came in the first quarter on 4-of-9 shooting from the floor. He tacked on another 14 points on 6-of-12 shooting over the final two quarters to finish with a game-high 31 points while also leading the contest in rebounds with 14. Perhaps his biggest moment, however, came with just over 16 seconds left in the game when he blocked a shot from Tyrese Haliburton to help the Lakers seal the one-point win. It was Davis' first 30-point game since Jan. 13, and he's now recorded a double-double in three of his last four appearances.

  • Lakers' Troy Brown: Coming off bench Thursday

    Brown will come off the bench Thursday against the Pacers, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

    After starting the past 10 games and averaging 7.9 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 29.0 minutes, Brown will move to the bench while coach Darvin Ham starts newly acquired Rui Hachimura at forward next to LeBron James. Brown should remain in the rotation, but the Lakers could be getting Austin Reaves (hamstring) back as soon as Saturday, which could bring Brown's minutes down further.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Will play Thursday

    James (ankle) will take the floor Thursday versus the Pelicans, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

    James sported a questionable designation leading up to the contest but seemed a strong candidate to play with the night off between games. James matched a season-high total of 11 assists en route to his first triple-double of the season Tuesday. He should have a shot at another huge effort Thursday versus a Pacers team that ranks among the league's fastest in terms of pace and the bottom 10 in defensive efficiency.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Could return Saturday

    Reaves (hamstring), who is out Thursday against the Pacers, could return Saturday against the Pelicans, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Coach Darvin Ham noted that Reaves has one more hurdle to clear before being ready for game action. Once available, the defensive-minded wing will presumably be eased back into action. He's periodically started and has averaged 10.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 28.9 minutes this season.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Will play against Indiana

    Coach Darvin Ham said Davis (foot) is good to go for Thursday's game versus the Pacers, Tony East of SI.com reports.

    Davis has been upgraded from probable to available Thursday due to a lingering foot injury. The star big man is averaging 21.3 points, 10.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.0 steals in 32.3 minutes across his last three appearances.

  • Lakers' Patrick Beverley: Will play Thursday

    Beverley (knee) will play in Thursday's game at Indiana, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.

    As expected, Beverley will play despite left knee soreness. In January, the veteran averaged 6.9 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 27.0 minutes.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Won't play Thursday

    Reaves (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Pacers, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    Reaves is slated to be re-evaluated Thursday, but he'll be sidelined for at least one more game due to his hamstring issue. A better idea of his status will likely be revealed once he's re-evaluated by the team's medical staff.

  • Lakers' Patrick Beverley: Likely to play against Indiana

    Beverley (knee) is probable for Thursday's game versus the pacers, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    Beverley is expected to play Thursday after missing the previous game with left knee soreness. His return to the lineup will likely send Troy Brown back to the bench.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Likely to play Thursday

    Davis (foot) is probable for Thursday's game against the Pacers, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    Davis has been eased into action after missing over a month due to his foot injury, but he returned to the starting lineup Tuesday against New York and logged 27 points, nine rebounds, two steals and an assist in 37 minutes. Although he's still dealing with his foot issue, he'll likely be able to suit up Thursday.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Questionable Thursday

    James (ankle) is questionable for Thursday's game against Indiana, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    James missed Monday's game against Brooklyn due to his sore left ankle, but he returned to action Tuesday against the Knicks and posted 28 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds and a steal in 43 minutes. He's still dealing with his ankle issue ahead of Thursday's matchup, but given his workload Tuesday, it seems unlikely that he'll face any limitations if he's available against the Pacers.
