Clarkson (thumb) finished with 15 points (6-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-3 FT) to go along with three rebounds and a steal over 30 minutes in Wednesday's 137-101 loss against the Suns.
Clarkson has been fighting a sprained thumb over the past few weeks, but he was pretty efficient from the field. He is averaging just 11.6 points through seven games in February, his lowest output for a month this season, so the injury is affecting him. However, he remains a decent fantasy option in most formats.
Clarkson (thumb) indicated he's good to go for Wednesday's matchup with the Suns, Mark Medina of Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Clarkson has dealt with a lingering thumb sprain over the last few weeks, but was given a probable designation coming into Wednesday, so this latest report is merely a confirmation of what we already expected. He should be good to take on his usual role as one of the first guards off the bench, likely taking on minutes in the mid 20's.
Clarkson is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Suns with a right thumb sprain,, Mark Medina of Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Clarkson was dealing with the same issue earlier in February, so there's a chance he re-aggravated the thumb sprain during the Lakers' most recent game. He's expected to play through the injury Wednesday, so look for Clarkson to take on his normal role as one of the first guards off the bench.
Clarkson suffered a mild right thumb sprain during Wednesday's game against the Pistons, but was able to go through Thursday's practice with it taped, Bill Oram of the Orange County Register reports.
Considering Clarkson was able to go through practice Thursday, he should still be good to go for Friday's game against the Bucks. Unless he's a late addition to the Lakers' injury report, Clarkson can be activated as usual, but it will be a situation to monitor moving forward, just in case it has some sort of effect on his shot or play-making abilities.
Clarkson continues to be perhaps the biggest beneficiary of D'Angelo Russell's continued absence with calf and knee injuries, as he's now played 35 and 36 minutes in the last two games. Coach Luke Walton has rolled out veteran Jose Calderon as the starting point guard in those contests, but it's Clarkson who is still receiving the starter's allotment of minutes, playing time that he's parlayed into 22-and-16-point efforts. The third-year guard's 33 shot attempts over the last two contests outings appears to be a good barometer of the level of usage that can be expected from him while Russell remains out.
