  • Lakers' Max Christie: Receives major minutes in return

    Christie (ankle) recorded nine points (3-8 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block across 29 minutes Thursday in the Lakers' 128-110 loss to the Warriors.

    Back in action after missing the final three games before the All-Star break with a sprained right ankle, Christie ended up seeing his most minutes since the calendar flipped to 2024. He had been featured in the Lakers' rotation prior to suffering the injury, but Christie took on expanded minutes Thursday mainly as a result of LeBron James (ankle) missing the contest. James is expected to play Friday versus the Spurs, and Christie could also face a new threat for playing time in Cam Reddish (ankle), who could put an end to a 12-game absence.

  • Lakers' Max Christie: Available for Thursday

    Christie (ankle) is available for Thursday's game against the Warriors, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Christie will shed his questionable tag, but Cam Reddish (ankle) will sit this one out. In Christie's last two appearances, he averaged 6.5 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.0 three-pointers in 16.5 minutes.

  • Lakers' Max Christie: Gets questionable designation

    Christie (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Warriors, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    Christie missed the Lakers' final three games before the All-Star break due to a sprained right ankle and is at risk of missing Thursday's contest as well. The game is the first leg of a back-to-back set, and Cam Reddish (ankle) is also questionable while LeBron James (ankle) has been ruled out, meaning that Christie could stumble into a larger workload if active.

  • Lakers' Max Christie: Out next two games

    Christie (ankle) won't be available Tuesday versus the Pistons or Wednesday versus the Jazz, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    After sitting out Friday's 139-122 win over the Pelicans with a right ankle sprain, Christie will remain sidelined through the All-Star break before being re-evaluated. Most of his vacated minutes will likely be assumed by Spencer Dinwiddie, who signed a one-year deal with the Lakers after clearing waivers over the weekend.

  • Lakers' Max Christie: Not playing Friday

    Christie (ankle) will not play in Friday's game against the Pelicans, Khobi Price of The Orange County Register reports.

    Christie underwent an MRI on his right ankle, but the Lakers are still waiting for the results. The good news for the Lakers is that D'Angelo Russell (knee) has been cleared to return to action Friday after sitting out Thursday's loss to Denver. Christie should be considered questionable to play for Tuesday's game against Detroit until the Lakers provide an update on his MRI.

  • Lakers' Max Christie: Unlikely to play Friday

    Christie (ankle) is doubtful for Friday's game against New Orleans.

    Christie suffered a right ankle sprain during Thursday's matchup against the Nuggets and will likely be forced to miss the second half of the back-to-back set. However, the Lakers' backcourt will likely get a boost since D'Angelo Russell (knee) is probable after missing Thursday's game.

  • Lakers' Max Christie: Leaves early with ankle sprain

    Christie won't return to Thursday's game against Denver due to a right ankle sprain, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports. He finished with seven points (2-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 15 minutes.

    Christie started the game in place of D'Angelo Russell (knee), but the Lakers will have to find a new replacement in the starting five if neither is able to play in the second half of a back-to-back set Friday versus the Pelicans.

  • Lakers' Max Christie: Starting against Denver

    Christie will start Thursday's game against the Nuggets, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

    The Lakers are without D'Angelo Russell (knee), who is considered day-to-day. In six starts this season, Christie has averaged 6.7 points, 2.0 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 0.8 three-pointers.

  • Lakers' Max Christie: Capitalizes on garbage time

    Christie registered seven points (3-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt), six rebounds, one assist and one block across 20 minutes during Monday's 135-119 loss to Houston.

    Christie entered Monday's contest having compiled eight points on 2-for-10 shooting across 49 minutes in his last four games. Monday's increased workload can be attributed more to the nature of the contest than to Christie stepping into an enlarged role, even in the absence of Cam Reddish (knee).

  • Lakers' Max Christie: Quiet despite injured Reddish

    Christie produced three points (1-2 FG, 1-1 3Pt), three assists and one steal in 14 minutes during Saturday's 132-125 loss to Utah.

    Christie started the second half of Saturday's loss to Utah after Cam Reddish exited with knee soreness, but it didn't translate to a meaningful workload. Christie entered Saturday's contest averaging 8.3 points and 4.8 rebounds in 22.2 minutes across his last six appearances, but D'Angelo Russell was leaned on instead, booming for 39 points in 41 minutes.

  • Lakers' Max Christie: Solid numbers in Thursday's loss

    Christie contributed 14 points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven rebounds and four assists across 25 minutes during Thursday's 127-109 loss to Phoenix.

    Cam Reddish (knee) left the game at halftime, opening up minutes for bench players like Christie in the second half. The second-year guard has seen 20-plus minutes in five of his last seven games, a stretch in which he's averaging 8.6 points, 5.1 boards, 1.3 assists, 1.1 threes, 0.6 steals and 0.6 blocks in 22.4 minutes a night. Should Reddish's injury allow Christie to take on a larger role more consistently, the latter could put himself on fantasy radars.

  • Lakers' Max Christie: Gets opportunity in win

    Christie provided 10 points (3-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal over 24 minutes during Thursday's 133-112 victory over the Hornets.

    Christie's minutes were elevated in the absence of Cam Reddish (groin) -- the blowout win assisting as well. Thursday's performance was arguably Christie's best of the campaign, though he only set a season high in blocks. The sophomore mainly operates as a three-point threat for the Lakers, though he's just 15-for-46 (32.6 percent) on the season. In fantasy, Christie is more of a keeper league flier rather than a waiver wire pickup.

  • Lakers' Max Christie: Retreats to bench

    Christie isn't starting Monday's game against the Knicks, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    Christie received a chance to run with the first unit Friday in San Antonio, but he failed to do much with the opportunity, finishing with two points and one assist in 23 minutes. He'll return to a bench role with Cam Reddish cleared to play Monday evening.

  • Lakers' Max Christie: Starting against Spurs

    Christie will start Friday against the Spurs, Khobi Price of The Orange County Register reports.

    Cam Reddish is sitting out Friday's game with knee soreness, while D'Angelo Russell is out with a migraine. Christie will get a big opportunity to showcase his talents Friday with the Lakers shorthanded. In five starts this season, Christie has averaged 7.6 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.0 three-pointers.

  • Lakers' Max Christie: Moves to bench

    Christie will move back to the bench for Saturday's game against the Rockets.

    Cam Reddish is back from his groin injury and will reclaim his starting role for the Lakers. The Lakers are finally getting healthy for the most part, so Christie's minutes are likely to trend down.

  • Lakers' Max Christie: Available to face OKC

    Christie (calf) is available to play against the Thunder on Thursday.

    Christie was previously deemed a game-time call due to a calf problem, but he has since been upgraded to available to feature Thursday. Christie has started four straight games for the Lakers, averaging 7.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 0.8 three-pointers over 26.0 minutes during that span.

  • Lakers' Max Christie: Iffy against Oklahoma City

    Christie is listed as questionable for Thursday's game versus the Thunder due to a left calf contusion.

    Christie has started in the Lakers' last four contests but is in danger of missing Thursday's contest. With Cam Reddish (groin) also questionable, Austin Reaves and Jalen Hood-Schifino are candidates to receive extended minutes if both Christie and Reddish are ruled out.
