Top Austin Reaves News

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Posts career-best scoring total

    Reaves ended with 19 points (7-10 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and three rebounds in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 125-116 loss to the Kings.

    Reaves was one of only three Lakers to finish with double-digit scoring in the contest, joining LeBron James (34 points) and Malik Monk (22 points). The rookie's point total was the highest of his career, and he reached the mark largely from beyond the arc, where he knocked down four of seven tries. Reaves has been inconsistent at times and doesn't produce much in terms of peripheral stats, but the fact that he has earned valuable minutes and has enjoyed some strong performances, speaks volumes considering the minimal role he was expected to fill coming into the season.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Scores 16 off bench

    Reaves ended Sunday's 127-119 loss to Memphis with 16 points (6-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and one block in 23 minutes.

    Reeves continues to see 20-to-25 minutes off the bench on most nights, but this marked his first time scoring more than 10 points since Dec. 15. Reeves missed a stretch of games in mid-December due to COVID-19 protocols, however. The rookie out of Oklahoma remains a key bench piece for the Lakers, but he provides more real-life value than fantasy value at this stage.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Off injury report

    Reaves (conditioning) is off the injury report for Friday's contest against the Trail Blazers, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    Reaves has missed the past seven games due to protocols and conditioning. He could be re-inserted into the rotation if he's gotten his wind back.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Clears protocols, still out

    Reaves (conditioning) cleared the league's health and safety protocols, but he won't be available for Wednesday's contest against the Grizzlies, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Reaves hasn't appeared in a game since Dec. 15, so it's not shocking the Lakers don't want to rush him back to game action. The rookie's next chance to suit up will come Friday against the Trail Blazers.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Not ready to return

    Reaves (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) won't be available for Tuesday's game against the Rockets.

    Reaves is one of four Lakers still in the health and safety protocols as Tuesday's game approaches, but his absence should be coming to an end soon. Given that he entered the protocols Dec. 17, Reaves should be eligible to end his quarantine as soon as he's asymptomatic and/or testing negative for the virus. Even so, Reaves may need some time to build up his conditioning following a multi-game layoff, so he could be at risk of missing Wednesday's game in Memphis, too.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Remains out Tuesday

    Reaves (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) is listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Suns.

    Reaves, who entered the health and safety protocols Dec. 17, will be sidelined for a third straight game. Unless he tests out of the protocol early, Reaves will most likely miss a fourth consecutive contest Thursday against the Spurs, though a return to action Christmas Day versus the Nets could be realistic.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: In protocols

    Reaves was placed in health and safety protocols Friday, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Reaves is the fifth Lakers player in protocols, though the team is getting some relief by having Russell Westbrook back sooner than anticipated. Wayne Ellington, Kent Bazemore and other guards could be in store for more minutes.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Sinks Dallas at buzzer

    Reaves had 15 points (5-6 3Pt), seven rebounds, two assists and a steal in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 107-104 overtime win against the Mavericks.

    Reaves set season highs in points, rebounds and minutes in the contest, and he hit the game-winning three-pointer in the closing seconds of overtime to deliver the Lakers a victory. The 23-year-old has played 25-plus minutes in each of the past three games and should continue to have an expanded role with Malik Monk and Talen Horton-Tucker in the COVID-19 protocols. However, Reaves fantasy outlook is limited at best despite Wednesday's impressive showing.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Available vs. Pistons

    Reaves (hamstring) is available against the Pistons on Sunday.

    Reaves is not on the league's injury report. Before sitting out 10 games recovering from a strained left hamstring, he logged serviceable but inadequate averages of 6.1 points and 2.0 rebounds.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Bumps up to questionable for Friday

    Reaves (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Kings.

    Reaves has missed the past nine games with a left hamstring strain, but he looks to have reached the day-to-day stage of his recovery. If he gains clearance ahead of Friday's 10:30 p.m. ET tip time, Reaves could fill a small role off the bench.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Remains sidelined Wednesday

    Reaves (hamstring) won't play Wednesday against the Pacers.

    Reaves will be sidelined for a ninth consecutive game as he continues to deal with a left hamstring strain. His next chance to play will be Friday against Sacramento.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Out Tuesday

    Reaves (hamstring) won't play Tuesday against the Knicks.

    As expected, Reaves will miss his eighth straight game due to a left hamstring strain. The Lakers have two remaining games this week, Wednesday at Indiana and Friday against Sacramento, but it's unlikely he plays Wednesday, either.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Likely out Tuesday

    Reaves (hamstring) is doubtful for Tuesday's matchup with the Knicks, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Reaves will likely miss his eighth straight game Tuesday, but it's still encouraging to see him not ruled out yet. The rookie had carved out a sizeable role -- 21.4 minutes per game across 10 appearances -- before going down with the injury, but now that the Lakers are getting back to full strength, it's unclear what his role will be when he eventually returns.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Out at least two weeks

    The Lakers announced Thursday that Reaves (hamstring) is expected to miss at least two weeks due to his injury, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.

    Coach Frank Vogel initially downplayed the severity of Reaves' injury, but the team will elect to shut him down to give him time to heal. The 23-year-old will be evaluated again in two weeks, while Malik Monk, Wayne Ellington and Avery Bradley should see increased playing time in the coming weeks.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Won't play Wednesday

    Reaves (hamstring) is out for Wednesday's game against the Heat, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.

    According to head coach Frank Vogel, Reaves' hamstring injury is minor, but he still won't be available on Wednesday. He should be considered day-to-day and figures to have a good chance to return when the Lakers host the Timberwolves on Friday. With Rajon Rondo (hamstring) also sidelined, more minutes could be available for Malik Monk, Wayne Ellington and Avery Bradley.
