Top Austin Reaves News

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Re-evaluation coming Thursday

    Reaves (hamstring) will be re-evaluated Thursday, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Reaves will thus miss at least the next three contests, and potentially more, as he continues to recover from a hamstring strain. Reaves hasn't appeared in a contest since Jan. 4, leaving the Lakers shorthanded in the backcourt in the meantime. Max Christie and Troy Brown are candidates to continue picking up the slack in his absence, though the impending return of Lonnie Walker (knee) should also serve to shore up the defensive ranks). Thursday against the Pacers looks like Reaves' next opportunity to retake the floor.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Still out

    Reaves (hamstring) has been ruled out for Saturday's game in Boston, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.

    Reaves went through a full-speed non-contact workout Tuesday and appears to be progressing well, but he'll remain sidelined for at least one more contest while rehabbing a left hamstring strain. The second-year guard's next chance to return will come Monday in Brooklyn.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Closing in on return

    Reaves (hamstring) went through a full-speed non-contact workout Tuesday and is expected to undergo strength testing Wednesday, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    This is all positive news for Reaves, who hasn't taken the court since Jan. 4 due to a left hamstring strain. The team noted Friday that the guard would be re-evaluated in a week, and if all goes well, he could gain clearance to play either Saturday against Boston or by early next week.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Out at least another week

    Reaves (hamstring) will be re-evaluated in a week, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.

    Reaves has been sidelined for two weeks due to a hamstring injury and will remain out for at least one more. Lonnie Walker (knee) may return soon, but Kendrick Nunn, Juan Toscano-Anderson and Max Christie are candidates for increased roles until Reaves and Walker are both available again.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Out for two-plus weeks

    Reaves was diagnosed Friday with a left hamstring strain and will be re-evaluated in two weeks, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Reaves has been one of the healthiest members of the Lakers' rotation, missing just two games up to this point. With Lonnie Walker (knee) also out for two weeks, Los Angeles' wing rotation is suddenly a skeleton crew. Rumors indicate the Lakers are looking to add Sterling Brown to a 10-day deal to shore up depth. Kendrick Nunn, Juan Toscano-Anderson and Max Christie are candidates to see expanded roles.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Contract guaranteed for season

    Reaves (hamstring), who is out Friday against Atlanta, had his contract guaranteed for the rest of the season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Reaves has primarily come off the bench this season but has entered the starting lineup in 12 of his 36 appearances. He's averaging 10.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 28.9 minutes per game, and it's unsurprising to see the Lakers guarantee his contract for the rest of the season. Whether he'll be available Saturday against the Kings remains to be seen.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Sitting Friday

    Reaves will not play in Friday's matchup with the Hawks due to a left hamstring strain, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

    It's unclear when Reaves suffered the injury as he started and played 32 minutes Wednesday, but his absence could be precautionary with Friday's tilt being the first leg of a back-to-back set. Regardless, Kendrick Nunn and Troy Brown (quad) should see more action Friday.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Starting Wednesday

    Reaves will enter the starting five for Wednesday's game against Miami, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    Reaves will draw the start with LeBron James (illness) and Lonnie Walker (knee) sidelined Wednesday. In 11 starts this season, Reaves has averaged 12.6 points 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists across 31.4 minutes.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Coming off bench Monday

    Reaves will come off the bench during Monday's contest against the Hornets, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    After starting in the Lakers' previous contest, Reaves will return to his reserve role for Monday's contest against Charlotte. Over his first 23 games off the bench this season, Reaves is averaging 9.7 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists across 27.8 minutes per game.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Logs solid all-around effort Monday

    Reaves amassed 15 points (5-7 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-5 FT), six rebounds, seven assists and one steal over 22 minutes during Monday's 121-115 win over the Hornets.

    Reaves played at least 10 fewer minutes than each of the Lakers' starters, but he had one of the better performances on the team. The second-year guard led Los Angeles with seven dimes in the victory and tied for third in scoring. Reaves also pulled down six boards and shot an efficient 5-for-7 from the field to round out a strong stat line. This was a nice bounce-back effort after he had posted an ugly 4-for-25 shooting mark over his previous three contests.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Active Friday

    Reaves (ankle) will play in Friday's game against Atlanta, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

    As expected, Reaves will play Friday after being listed as probable due to right ankle soreness. With Lonnie Walker (lower body) sidelined for the match, Reaves could see a larger role. Reaves has scored in double digits in four of his last six appearances and has averaged 28.0 minutes per game across that span.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Struggles continue Friday

    Reaves produced five points (1-13 FG, 1-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and one assist over 26 minutes during Friday's 130-121 victory over the Hawks.

    Reaves shifted into the starting lineup Friday but was unable to reverse what has been a rough period of games over the past week. Over that period, he has been the 304th-ranked player in standard formats, seeing him return to the waiver wire in many leagues. Based on what we have seen thus far this season, he appears destined to be nothing more than either a stream consideration or short-term addition in certain builds.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Starting for injured Walker

    Reaves will start Friday's game against the Hawks, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    With Lonnie Walker (tailbone) sidelined, Reaves will get the nod. As a starter this season, the guard is averaging 13.4 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 32.0 minutes.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Likely to play Friday

    Reaves is probable to play in Friday's game versus the Hawks due to right ankle soreness, Harrison Faigen of SBNation.com reports.

    Reaves was also deemed probable with an ankle injury before playing Wednesday. The second-year guard is averaging 11.0 points, 2.0 assists and 1.8 rebounds in 26.0 minutes across his last four games.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Minimal impact in defeat

    Reaves closed Wednesday's 112-98 loss to the Heat with zero points (0-5 FG, 0-4 3Pt), one assist and one steal over 20 minutes.

    Although Reaves saw ample playing time during Wednesday's matchup, he was unable to convert any of his five field-goal attempts and struggled to generate much production in secondary categories. He's played at least 20 minutes in each of his four appearances since returning to the court, and he's averaged 11.0 points and 2.0 assists in 26.0 minutes per game during that time.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Good to go Wednesday

    Reaves (ankle) is available to play in Wednesday's game versus the Heat, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

    Reaves has been upgraded from probable to available for Wednesday's game. While he is unlikely to start, he is averaging 29.6 minutes played across his last five appearances.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Likely available Wednesday

    Reaves (ankle) is probable for Wednesday's matchup against the Heat, Harrison Faigen of SBNation.com reports.

    Reaves, who recently missed two games due to an ankle injury, posted eight points (3-7 FG), five assists, three rebounds and one steal in 26 minutes during Tuesday's blowout win over the Magic. It appears his appearance on the injury report is merely precautionary, and barring a setback, the second-year guard out of Oklahoma should suit up for the second half of the Lakers' back-to-back set Wednesday. Since returning from his brief absence, Reaves has averaged 14.7 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 28.0 minutes over his past three games.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Efficient off bench Sunday

    Reaves had 16 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-5 FT), two rebounds and two blocks across 29 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 124-115 loss to the Mavericks.

    Reaves was one of three Los Angeles players that scored in double figures, with the second-year player achieving his production in efficient fashion. With averages of 16.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.0 three-pointers, 1.0 assists, 1.0 blocks and 0.8 steals in 30.5 minutes per game over his last four outings, Reaves is starting to enter the discussion as a potential pickup in 12-team category leagues.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Impressive line from bench

    Reaves recorded 20 points (6-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-7 FT), two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 29 minutes during Friday's 134-130 loss to the Hornets.

    Reaves was listed as questionable with an ankle injury prior to Friday's game, but he logged 29 minutes in the loss. The Lakers were behind early after struggles from Dennis Schroder and Russell Westbrook, and Reaves provided some spark to keep the team within striking distance. The Oklahoma product is enjoying more production and usage in his second season as the team searches for additional shooters to complement its star-studded lineup.

    Reaves scored at least 20 points for the fourth time this season and was in double-figures for his third straight appearance. While the second-year guard was efficient from the field, he coughed up three turnovers while dishing out just two assists.
