Player News
  • Waiters is not on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's Game 1 of the NBA Finals. Waiters suffered a groin injury in Game 2 against Houston and has not played since Sept. 6. While he appears to be available to begin the Finals, the guard is unlikely to make a major impact, though at some point in the series coach Frank Vogel could turn to Waiters for an offensive spark off the bench. Waiters played a combined 29 minutes in Games 2 and 4 against Portland in Round 1, but both of those contests were blowout Lakers victories.

  • Waiters (groin) is questionable for Saturday's Game 5 against the Nuggets. This is an upgrade for Waiters, who had previously been listed as doubtful before each game in the series and hasn't seen the court since Game 2 against the Rockets. If he's cleared to play, it seems likely he'd be eased back into action and probably wouldn't see fantasy-relevant minutes.

  • Waiters (groin) is doubtful for Thursday's Game 4 against the Nuggets. Waiters continues to be listed as doubtful due to a left groin injury, so it's unlikely he'll take the court Thursday. Rajon Rondo, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Alex Caruso (wrist) and Danny Green (finger) should continue seeing all of the Lakers' backcourt minutes.

  • Waiters (groin) is out for Tuesday's Game 3 against the Nuggets, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports. As expected, Waiters remains out while recovering from left groin soreness. He hasn't played in the Lakers' past five games.

  • Waiters (groin) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's Game 3 against Denver. Waiters hasn't played in the Lakers' last five games since he tweaked his left groin during Game 3 against Houston. The team is expecting him to miss at least one more game, and the doubtful tag may imply that he's not overly close to making his return to game action. Prior to the injury, Waiters had averaged 7.6 minutes per game in five postseason appearances.
