Top Lakers News

  • Lakers' Christian Wood: Sidelined for Game 1

    Wood (knee) won't play in Saturday's Game 1 against the Nuggets, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Wood has yet to take the court since his arthroscopic knee procedure, so his absence shouldn't impact LA's rotation much. It remains unclear if he'll get the green light to return at some point during the postseason.

  • Lakers' Jarred Vanderbilt: Officially out for Game 1

    Vanderbilt (foot) won't play in Saturday's Game 1 against the Nuggets, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Vanderbilt will continue to be considered day-to-day as the Lakers navigate through its opening-round series. His next chance to suit up will arrive Monday for Game 2.

  • Lakers' Cam Reddish: Ruled out for Game 1

    Reddish (ankle) won't play in Saturday's Game 1 against the Nuggets, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Reddish's ankle injury suffered near the end of the regular season will now force him to miss the first game of the opening-round series. The team will likely re-evaluate the forward ahead of Game 2 on Monday.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Probable for Game 1

    James (ankle) is listed as probable for Saturday's Game 1 against the Nuggets, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    James has once again been added to the team's injury report due to left ankle peroneal tendinopathy, but he should be able to continue to play through the issue. He's coming off a strong showing in Tuesday's Play-In Game against the Pelicans, falling one rebound and one assist shy of a triple-double.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Expected to play in Game 1

    Davis (back) is probable for Saturday's Game 1 against Denver, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Davis continues to be added to the injury report due to low back soreness, but the issue isn't expected to keep him out of Saturday's action. The team should confirm his availability closer to tipoff.

  • Lakers' Jarred Vanderbilt: Spotted in walking boot

    Vanderbilt (foot) was wearing a walking boot during Friday's practice, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

    Previous reports have suggested that Vanderbilt is getting close to a return, which is why it was curious to see him wearing a boot. However, coach Darvin Ham stated after practice that the boot is simply a "precautionary measure," per Jovan Buha of The Athletic, and the forward hasn't suffered any kind of setback. The team has yet to provide a concrete timeline for Vanderbilt's return, simply stating that he's being considered day-to-day.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Clutch performance in win

    Davis contributed 20 points (6-16 FG, 8-10 FT), 15 rebounds, three blocks and one steal in 40 minutes during Tuesday's 110-106 Play-In Game victory over the Pelicans.

    Davis was able to battle through back spasms in Tuesday's win and thinks the extra rest before Saturday's Game 1 against the Nuggets will allow him to fully recover, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports. While the star big man struggled from the field, he hauled in a clutch offensive rebound off a LeBron James miss with 15 seconds and was able to convert on four free throws down the stretch to ice the game.

  • Lakers' D'Angelo Russell: Lands five triples in win

    Russell finished Tuesday's 110-106 Play-In Game victory over the Pelicans with 21 points (7-14 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six assists, one block and one steal over 37 minutes.

    Russell was hot early, connecting on three of his five triples in the opening quarter. Although he did cool off, he was able to connect on a crucial three-pointer late in the piece, giving the Lakers a four-point lead with only seconds remaining. The Lakers will need Russell to stay hot should they hope to advance past the defending champion Nuggets in the first round of the playoffs.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Flirts with triple-double Tuesday

    James registered 23 points (6-20 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 10-10 FT), nine rebounds, nine assists, two blocks and three steals over 41 minutes during Tuesday's 110-106 Play-In Game victory over the Pelicans.

    James fell just one rebound and one assist short of his second straight triple-double. It continues what has been a fantastic season for James, a campaign that will now last at least another four games. The Nuggets await the Lakers in the first round of the playoffs, a matchup that should be a must-watch given the history between the two teams.

  • Lakers' Spencer Dinwiddie: Non-factor in win

    Dinwiddie recorded zero points (0-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist over five minutes during Tuesday's 110-106 Play-In Game victory over the Pelicans.

    Dinwiddie barely touched the floor in the win, managing just five minutes of playing time. The Lakers opted to go with Gabe Vincent as the primary backup, a move that could very well stick given his defensive upside. Tuesday's win means the Lakers will now go on to face the Nuggets in the first round of the playoffs.

  • Lakers' Cam Reddish: Ruled out Tuesday

    Reddish (ankle) won't play in Tuesday's Play-In Tournament game versus the Pelicans, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

    Reddish has been downgraded from questionable to out Tuesday due to a right ankle sprain. In his absence, Taurean Prince and Rui Hachimura should continue to receive increased playing time.
