“Lakers’ Injury Report: Vanderbilt’s Setback, Vincent’s Comeback, and More”

The Lakers are facing challenges this season, especially with injuries impacting key players. 

Unfortunately, power forward Jarred Vanderbilt will be sidelined for a few weeks due to a foot injury. The team disclosed, “Jarred Vanderbilt has a right mid-foot sprain and will be re-evaluated in 3-4 weeks,” as shared on social media on February 5.

Coach Darvin Ham expressed the seriousness, saying, “It’s like laughing, but it’s not a joking matter. It’s been the story of our season.” 

Vanderbilt got injured during the Lakers’ victory against the Celtics on Feb. 1, contributing ten points and seven rebounds in just 16 minutes.

On a brighter note, Gabe Vincent, recovering from a knee injury, is making progress. Despite trade talks, he might return by early March.

Additionally, small forward Cam Reddish, out since late January with a sprained ankle, is due for re-evaluation soon.
