Dudley agreed to a one-year, $2.6 million contract with the Lakers on Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The soon-to-be 34-year-old Dudley was a consistent part of Brooklyn's rotation last season. He started 25 of his 59 appearances, averaging 4.9 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 20.7 minutes. In Dudley, the Lakers have found a veteran presence and a solid three-point threat. It's unlikely he sees much more action than he did last season.
Dudley was ejected from Saturday's game against Philadelphia, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Dudley was ejected after getting into a shoving match with Jimmy Butler midway through the third quarter of Game 4 in Brooklyn. Barring any further punishment, Dudley should return for Game 5 on Tuesday.
Dudley will start Saturday's Game 4 against the 76ers, Marc Narducci of the Philadelphia Iquirer reports.
Coach Kenny Atkinson will send Rodions Kurucs to the bench in favor of Dudley. Dudley failed to score in 17 minutes during Game 3.
Dudley had zero points (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and one rebound in 17 minutes during Thursday's 131-115 Game 3 loss to the 76ers.
Dudley returned to the lineup following a one-game absence due to calf soreness. It wasn't the most encouraging return to action, as he finished with more turnovers (two) than anything else. Still, it seems likely that Dudley will suit up again for Saturday's Game 4.
Dudley (calf) will play during Thursday's Game 3 against the 76ers, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Right calf soreness prevented the veteran from playing in Game 2, but he's all set to go for Game 3. During Game 1, he played a significant role, seeing 28 minutes and posting four points, four assists and one steal.
Dudley (calf) has been ruled out of Monday's Game 2 in their first-round playoff matchup against the 76ers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Dudley saw 28 minutes in Game 1 Saturday, so his absence will change the Nets' rotation. In his absence, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Treveon Graham will likely see larger roles off the bench, with DeMarre Carroll and Rodions Kurucs possibly seeing larger roles as well. At this time, Dudley should be considered questionable for Thursday's Game 3, with more information on his status coming out closer to then.
Dudley is listed as questionable Monday for Game 2 of the Nets' first-round matchup with the 76ers due to right calf tightness, Greg Logan of Newsday reports.
Dudley may have tweaked his calf at some point during Saturday's 111-102 win in Game 1 of the series, when he played 28 minutes and generated four points (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four assists and one steal. The Nets are also listing Ed Davis (ankle) as questionable, leaving the team's frontcourt depth on shaky ground entering Game 2. If neither or both players are available Monday, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Treveon Graham would likely handle elevated roles off the bench.
Dudley finished with 16 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), six rebounds, two steals and an assist across 23 minutes in the Nets' win over the Bucks on Saturday.
Dudley matched a season-high with 16 points in Saturday's win, producing a solid stat line off the bench. Nights like this come around once in a blue moon for the vet, who has scored single-digit points in six of his last seven games.
Dudley had 15 points (6-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, three assists, and two blocks in 35 minutes during Monday's 148-144 loss to Portland.
Dudley turned back the clock Monday, playing a whopping 35 minutes in the double-overtime loss. Head coach Kenny Atkinson basically went with the hot hand down the stretch and Dudley rewarded him with excellent production. This is unlikely to happen again anytime soon and nostalgia aside, Dudley should be left on the waivers in most formats.
Dudley will practice with the G League's Long Island Nets on Thursday, Ben Nadeau of Basketball Insiders reports.
Dudley has appeared in just two of Brooklyn's four games since the All-Star break following a lengthy absence due to a hamstring injury. The organization will continue getting him back into form by having him practice on Long Island.
Dudley (hamstring) played seven minutes off the bench and recorded no statistics Thursday in the Nets' 113-99 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Dudley had missed the Nets' previous 16 games with a hamstring injury, which appears to have cost him his spot in the starting five. The veteran had started five straight games in January prior to getting hurt, then saw a slew of key rotation players return from injury before he did. There was still an opportunity for him to pick up some run while coach Kenny Atkinson ran a bloated 11-man rotation Thursday, but Dudley will likely be the first player excised when Spencer Dinwiddie (thumb) returns in March or if Atkinson decides to streamline things.
Dudley (hamstring) practiced Wednesday and is available for Thursday's matchup against the Trail Blazers, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Dudley has been out since Jan. 11 while nursing a strained left hamstring. The veteran will make his return Thursday, however. He's held a solid role with the Nets this season, seeing his most minutes per game (22.0) since 2015-16 and averaging 5.0 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists.
Dudley (hamstring) revealed Sunday via his personal Twitter account that he expects to be available for the Nets' first game out of the All-Star break Thursday in Brooklyn versus the Trail Blazers.
Dudley will likely practice with the Nets when the team reconvenes this week, after which his availability for Thursday's game should be confirmed. Prior to sustaining the hamstring injury in early January, Dudley had started five straight games at power forward. It's unclear if he'll recapture those duties or even be included in the rotation, as the Nets are now healthier in the frontcourt than they had been at the time Dudley got hurt.
Dudley has yet to resume practicing since being shut down Jan. 9 with a strained left hamstring, Zach Braziller of the New York Post reports.
Dudley has already been ruled out for Monday's game in Toronto, and his lack of on-court activity over the past month means it's probably safe to count him out for Wednesday's tilt in Cleveland, the Nets' final contest before the All-Star break. Even if Dudley makes enough progress over the break to suit up for the Nets' first game of the second half, he could be excluded from the rotation now that Brooklyn is relatively healthy at both forward spots.

Dudley (hamstring) won't play Thursday against the Spurs, Greg Logan of Newsday reports.
