Sacre was unable to see any action Wednesday when the Lakers lost to Orlando 101-99. The backup center has appeared in just one game for Los Angeles this year, and it was for only four minutes. Sacre is coming off a season in 2014-15 where he was a major piece for the Lakers lineup having started 18 of the 67 games he played. However, this year he hasn't seen much of a role at all, and it's hard to tell if this is going to improve or not as he's currently behind Roy Hibbert and Tarik Black on the depth chart.
Sacre collected five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 FT) and grabbed four rebounds off the bench in Monday's win over Portland. Sacre will likely open the season as the Lakers' fourth center behind newcomers Roy Hibbert and Brandon Bass, as well as Tarik Black. While Sacre did see 16.9 minutes per game in the 2014-15 season, he'll be hard-pressed to find a similar workload this coming year. Even with considerable playing time he hasn't been much of an offensive threat in his career to this point, averaging just 4.3 points and 3.2 rebounds per game.
Lakers center Robert Sacre said Thursday that he would prefer to continue playing for the Lakers next season, but he understands the team's holds the option on his contract, reports the team's official website. In 67 games for the Lakers this season, Sacre averaged 4.6 points and 3.5 rebounds.
Despite his foot injury, Lakers center Robert Sacre is listed in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game at Utah, reports the team's official website. Sacre has been dealing with a foot injury, but it has not caused him to miss any recent games. In 49 games, he is averaging 4.4 points and 3.5 rebounds. The Lakers 10-point underdogs.
Lakers guard Nick Young was not able to practice Tuesday and is questionable for Wednesday's game at Utah, according to the team's official website. Young had an MRI on his knee Monday, which did not reveal anything serious. Meanwhile, an MRI on center Robert Sacre's foot also came back negative and he is questionable for Wednesday.
