Lakers' Alfonzo McKinnie: Scores 10
McKinnie totaled 10 points (4-8 FG, 1-1 FT, 1-3 3Pt), five rebounds and two steals in 17 minutes during Wednesday's 124-122 win over the Rockets.
The Lakers were without guards Dennis Schroder (Covid-19) and Alex Caruso (foot) Wednesday, which allowed McKinnie to see some extended playing time. The 28-year-old made the most of his opportunity by providing an efficient shooting night.

Lakers' Alfonzo McKinnie: Provides lift off bench
McKinnie tallied 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt), two rebounds and one steal across 16 minutes Thursday in the Lakers' 121-113 loss to the Celtics.
The scoring total was one point off a season high for McKinnie, who took on an expanded role off the bench with all of LeBron James (knee), Anthony Davis (calf), Andre Drummond (toe), Markieff Morris (ankle) and Jared Dudley (knee) sidelined. All of Davis, Drummond and Morris appear likely to return to the lineup within the next week, so McKinnie could find himself out of the rotation once the Lakers have more frontcourt options available....

Lakers' Alfonzo McKinnie: Heading to Lakers

McKinnie, as well as Jordan Bell, are heading to the Lakers as part of the reported McGee deal.

However, the forward, who's on a team-friendly contract, could provide experience off the bench if the Lakers choose to keep him.... See More ... See Less

McKinnie (heel) played 20 minutes off the bench in Saturday's 104-102 loss to the Nuggets, finishing with eight points (4-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt), three rebounds and one steal.
McKinnie played for the first time in the second half after he had been sidelined since the Cavaliers' final game before the All-Star break while contending with plantar fasciitis.
