Top Lakers News

  • Lakers' Cam Reddish: Listed as probable

    Reddish (ankle) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Clippers, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Reddish was able to practice on Tuesday after missing the past 14 games. It was reported prior to this that Reddish would be a game-time call, but it sounds like he'll be a go barring a setback in warmups.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Questionable for Wednesday

    James (ankle) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Clippers, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    James continues to deal with lingering left ankle tendinopathy and is in danger of missing the first leg of the Lakers' back-to-back Tuesday. Max Christie, Cam Reddish (ankle) and Taurean Prince are candidates to receive increased playing time if James is ruled out.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Probable for Wednesday

    Davis is probable for Wednesday's game against the Clippers due to bilateral Achilles tendinopathy, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    This is the usual probable tag that Davis carries, but he's also dealing with an illness that forced him to miss practice Tuesday. For now, fantasy managers can expect the big man to suit up against the Clippers even though he won't be 100 percent.

  • Lakers' Gabe Vincent: Still limited to rehab

    Coach Darvin Ham said Tuesday that Vincent (knee) hasn't returned to on-court activities yet, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Vincent is due for another evaluation at the beginning of March, but it sounds like he's at least a few weeks away from returning to game action. The point guard hasn't played since Dec. 20 and has appeared in just one game since Oct. 30.

  • Lakers' Jarred Vanderbilt: No on-court activity yet

    Coach Darvin Ham said Tuesday that Vanderbilt (foot) has yet to progress to on-court activities, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Vanderbilt is slated to be re-evaluated at the beginning of March, but it sounds like he's still at least a couple of weeks away from returning to game action. He hasn't played since Feb. 1 due to a right wrist sprain, and initial reports hinted that the injury could sideline him for the remainder of the campaign.

  • Lakers' Cam Reddish: Ramping up

    Reddish (ankle) practiced Tuesday and will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Clippers, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

    Reddish is expected to go through pregame warmups Wednesday before his status is determined. He has missed 14 consecutive contests due to a right ankle sprain, contributing to a defensive void on the wings for the Lakers.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Misses practice Tuesday

    Davis did not practice Tuesday due to an upper respiratory illness, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

    Davis being ill is not ideal in advance of the Lakers' upcoming back-to-back set Wednesday and Thursday against the Clippers and Wizards, respectively. He has over 24 hours to recover, but the Lakers' rotation would be thin in his stead, as Christian Wood is sidelined due to knee swelling -- potentially leaving Jaxson Hayes as the lone remaining traditional center available.

  • Lakers' D'Angelo Russell: Strong from deep in 20-point outing

    Russell racked up 20 points (8-14 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 0-1 FT), three rebounds, seven assists, one block and one steal across 37 minutes during Sunday's 123-113 loss to Phoenix.

    Russell led all Lakers in threes while ending as one of three players with 20 or more points and finishing three assists short of the double-digit mark to boost Los Angeles offensively. Russell has connected on four or more threes in 17 games this year, including in three of his last six contests. Over his last 10 appearances, Russell has surpassed the 20-point mark five times.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Top rebounder in double-double

    Davis supplied 22 points (11-17 FG), 14 rebounds, two blocks and three steals over 42 minutes during Sunday's 123-113 loss to Phoenix.

    Despite entering the game as a game-time decision with Achilles and hip issues, Davis led the Lakers in rebounds and steals while ending as one of three players with 20 or more points in a double-double outing. Davis has recorded a double-double in eight of his last 10 games, posting at least 20 points and 10 rebounds in seven of those outings.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Lifts offense in double-double game

    James supplied 28 points (12-19 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-4 FT), seven rebounds, 12 assists, one block and two steals over 37 minutes during Sunday's 123-113 loss to the Suns.

    James lifted the Lakers offense despite being a game-time decision with an ankle injury, leading all players in Sunday's contest in scoring and assists in a well-rounded double-double performance. James has handed out 10 or more assists in 11 games this season, recording at least 25 points, 10 assists and five rebounds on five occasions.

  • Lakers' Colin Castleton: Out indefinitely with broken wrist

    Castleton is expected to miss multiple weeks after he recently suffered a fractured right wrist, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Castleton, one of the Lakers' two-way players, hasn't seen any game action at the G League or NBA level since Feb. 14, but it's unclear when exactly he suffered the injury. The fractured wrist comes at an inconvenient time for Castleton, who may have had an outside chance to push Jaxson Hayes for the top backup role at center with his other competitor for the job, Christian Wood (knee) already facing a multi-week absence of his own. The undrafted rookie out of Florida had made just seven appearances for Los Angeles this season but has been a standout performer for the G League's South Bay Lakers when available, averaging 16.4 points, 10.6 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.6 blocks and 0.9 steals in 28.8 minutes per game over 24 appearances.

  • Lakers' Cam Reddish: Ruled out

    Reddish (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Suns, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Reddish hasn't played since Jan. 23, but he had been considered a game-time call heading into Sunday's contest and appears to be nearing a return. Max Christie should continue to hold down a spot in the rotation as a reserve wing while Reddish remains sidelined for at least one more game.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Suiting up Sunday

    James (ankle) will play Sunday versus Phoenix, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

    James and Anthony Davis (Achilles/hip) have both been cleared for action Sunday after being labeled as game-time decisions leading up to the contest. Though he's sat out in two of the Lakers' last eight games while managing left ankle tendinopathy, James has otherwise been productive when available, averaging 25.2 points, 8.3 assists, 5.0 rebounds, 1.8 three-pointers and 1.0 steals in 36.3 minutes per contest over his six appearances during that stretch.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Cleared to play Sunday

    Davis (Achilles/hip) is available for Sunday's game against the Suns, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Davis and LeBron James (ankle) have both been upgraded to available, while Cam Reddish (ankle) has been ruled out. Davis has scored at least 20 points in seven straight games, averaging 27.1 points, 12.4 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.7 blocks in 33.1 minutes during that stretch.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Deemed game-time call

    Head coach Darvin Ham said Davis (Achilles/hip) is a game-time decision for Sunday's game against Phoenix, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Davis continues to deal with bilateral Achilles soreness as well as left hip spasms. Along with Davis, Ham labeled LeBron James (ankle) and Cam Reddish (ankle) as game-time calls for Sunday's contest, and clarity on the statuses of all three players is unlikely to arrive until shortly before the 3:30 p.m. ET tipoff.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Game-time decision Sunday

    Lakers head coach Darvin Ham said James (ankle) is a game-time decision for Sunday's game against Phoenix, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    James sat out the Lakers' first game out of the All-Star break Thursday against the Warriors due to his lingering ankle injury, but he returned to a 34-minute workload in Friday's win over the Spurs. Though Sunday's contest represents a standalone game, the Lakers are still likely to wait and see how James responds to pregame warmups before making a call on his status ahead of the 3:30 p.m. ET tipoff.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Appears on injury report

    James is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Suns due to a left ankle peroneal tendinopathy, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    It's not surprising to see James listed on the injury report, as that has been a trend all season long. He's coming off a 30-point, nine-assist, seven-rebound performance against the Spurs on Friday, and barring any late setback, he should handle his regular workload Sunday against another playoff contender in the Suns.
