Ennis (shoulder) will be available Tuesday against the Clippers, Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Ennis left Monday's practice after tweaking his left shoulder, but it's not significant enough to force him out of any games. The point guard is averaging just 10.5 minutes per game since joining the Lakers, and since he's set to become a free agent this summer, it's unlikely he'll see significant run over the final three months of the season.
Ennis injured his left shoulder during Monday's practice and will be reevaluated Tuesday. Ennis' status for Tuesday's game against the Clippers won't be determined until after he's examined following morning shootaround, but there's a good possibility the 22-year-old will be held out. Even if he suits up Tuesday, Ennis remains on the fringes of the Lakers' rotation, having averaged 4.5 points, 1.5 assists and 1.1 rebounds in 10.5 minutes per game over 10 appearances with the team since being acquired from the Rockets at the trade deadline.
Ennis will be active and available to play in Sunday's game against the Spurs, Mike Trudell of Lakers.com reports. After being traded from the Rockets to the Lakers just prior to the trade deadline, Ennis was held out of Friday's contest against the Thunder, as the Lakers wanted to give him some additional time to get settled in with his new team. Now that he's had a few days to get comfortable, Ennis will be available to play Sunday, but he's only the Lakers third option at point guard behind D'Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson, so he'll likely struggle to find significant minutes.
Ennis will not play in Friday's game against the Thunder but is likely to play Sunday against the Spurs, Mike Bresnahan of Spectrum SportsNet reports. Ennis was exchanged at the trade deadline for Marcelo Huertas, but he remains in Los Angeles at this time and will be unable to join the team in Oklahoma City. The point guard should be good to go when the team returns home Sunday, but seeing as though the Lakers already have plenty of depth at the point guard position, Ennis is not expected to take on a major role with the team this season barring any major injuries.
Ennis will be traded to the Lakers in exchange for Marcelo Huertas, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports. Ennis was out of the rotation in Houston and has averaged just 6.3 minutes per game, but in heading to the Lakers, there doesn't appear to be a more direct route to playing time. D'Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson are the top two point guard options, so Ennis will have to battle for Jose Calderon for rights to the third-string role. That keeps Ennis off the fantasy radar in the majority of formats.
