  • Lakers' Kendrick Nunn: Says he's fully healthy

    Nunn (knee) said Tuesday that he feels 100 percent healthy, per Spectrum SportsNet.

    Nunn missed all of 2021-22 due to a right knee injury suffered in the preseason. Unsurprisingly, he exercised his player option for 2022-23 and is expected to be a part of the Lakers' plans for this upcoming season. Two seasons ago with Miami, he saw 29.5 minutes per game and averaged 14.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists. He's expected to fight for backup guard minutes this season with Austin Reaves, Lonnie Walker and others.

  • Lakers' Kendrick Nunn: Will exercised 2022-23 option

    Nunn (knee) intends to exercise his $5.25 million player option for 2022-23, Jake Fischer of BleacherReport.com reports.

    After he was sidelined for the entire 2021-22 season with a right knee bone bruise suffered during the preseason, Nunn's decision to take the guaranteed money for 2022-23 comes as little surprise, as he was unlikely to garner that sort of commitment from a team if he chose to test his luck on the open market. Nunn's expiring deal could make him a useful trade chip for the Lakers, who are expected to overhaul their roster this summer on the heels of a disappointing season.

  • Lakers' Kendrick Nunn: Expected out for rest of season

    Nunn (knee) is not expected to play this season, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

    Nunn notably suffered a setback in his recovery in mid-January, and that is likely what put any return this season in jeopardy. He'll end up not having played a regular-season game, only taking part in preseason action before suffering the injury.

  • Lakers' Kendrick Nunn: Out until March

    Nunn (knee) won't be available until at least March, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Nunn will have to wait at least another month before possibly making his Lakers' debut, as the guard underwent an exam Tuesday that confirmed a bone bruise in his right knee. Coach Frank Vogel mentioned that he is hopeful that Nunn will play this year, but it isn't clear just when the guard will be able to.

  • Lakers' Kendrick Nunn: Not close to return

    Nunn (knee) remains without a timetable, and coach Frank Vogel intimated Monday that he's not close to making his Lakers debut, Ryan Ward of Lakers Nation reports.

    Vogel said Nunn is "still not really ramped up to where he's close to playing," so it looks like he won't be back on the floor anytime soon. When the Lakers signed Nunn back in August, it looked like a fantastic value deal for a team in need of depth, but Nunn's recovery has not gone as planned, and at this point it's fair to wonder if he'll return at any point this season.

  • Lakers' Kendrick Nunn: Suffers setback

    Nunn (knee) has suffered a setback in his rehab and his 2021 debut will be delayed, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.

    The Lakers have been quiet on the subject of Nunn's timetable for a return, and this latest update of a setback isn't what prospective fantasy managers want to hear. The team will likely scale back the intensity of Nunn's workouts as a result, though the Lakers have yet to reveal a rehab plan for Nunn moving forward.

  • Lakers' Kendrick Nunn: Still no timetable

    Nunn (knee) remains without a timetable to make his Lakers debut, Trevor Lane of Lakers Nation reports.

    Coach Frank Vogel said Nunn continues to go through individual, on-court work, but it remains unclear when he'll be able to move on to five-on-five, full-contact drills. The Lakers could desperately use Nunn's scoring and playmaking off the bench, so the hope is that he can join the rotation sometime within the next month or so. As a member of the Heat last season, Nunn averaged 14.6 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2.2 threes (38.1% 3Pt) per game.

  • Lakers' Kendrick Nunn: Clears protocol, remains out

    Nunn (knee) cleared the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols Sunday but remains out indefinitely, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Though Nunn is out of the health and safety protocols just two days after being deactivated, he's not expected to be available to play until January while he recovers from soreness as well as a bone bruise of his right knee, an injury he suffered during the preseason. The 26-year-old isn't a lock to be included in the rotation when he eventually returns.

  • Lakers' Kendrick Nunn: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Nunn (knee) has entered health and safety protocols, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Nunn hasn't played in a single game this season and is out with a knee injury, so him being placed in the protocols shouldn't impact the Lakers' rotation. However, in the bigger picture, this is yet another player that has had to enter protocols in a short amount of time. With a growing number of players around the league landing in the health and safety protocols, it's not yet clear whether Nunn's placement in the protocols will lead to more Lakers spending time away from the team.
