McLemore tallied 12 points (4-8 FG, 4-7 3Pt) and one rebound across 22 minutes in Sunday's 123-110 win over the Suns.
Since he arrived from Houston, McLemore's sharpshooting skills have generated considerable spark to the Lakers' offense when they give way to the second unit. He's never been a solid contributor in secondary stats, so his success is completely dependent on his shooting accuracy, which is usually determined by three-point attempts.
McLemore registered 16 points (5-16 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 22 minutes during Wednesday's 116-107 loss to the Wizards.
The 28-year-old has now hit at least one three-pointer in nine of his first 11 games as a Laker. McLemore's court time has been a roller coaster lately, as he's played 17, 23, 10, 16, nine, 29, 12, and 22 minutes over his last seven games, respectively. Feel free to stream the eighth-year guard in deeper formats if you're in desperate need of some points and threes.
McLemore will come off the bench for Monday's game against the Magic, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.
After making a spot start in place of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope on Saturday, McLemore will head back to the bench as KCP returns to his customary shooting guard spot. McLemore went off for 20 points and six three-pointers Saturday, though the Lakers fell to the Mavs for the second time in three nights.
McLemore scored 20 points (7-12 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 0-1 FT) and blocked one shot in Saturday's loss to the Mavericks.
Anthony Davis played 28 minutes, and the Lakers also had Andre Drummond and Dennis Schroder in their starting lineup, but it was the recently acquired McLemore who paced the team in scoring in the loss. The sharpshooter knocked down six three-pointers in the contest, his most since joining Los Angeles on April 6. In nine games with the team, McLemore is averaging 9.4 points and 2.0 treys while shooting 44.3 percent from the field.
McLemore will start Saturday's game against the Mavericks, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.
With Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (ankle) sidelined, McLemore will make his first start as a member of the Lakers. In four starts with the Rockets, McLemore has averaged 13.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steals in 29.8 minutes.
McLemore finished Thursday's loss to the Celtics with 17 points (7-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds and two assists over 23 minutes.
McLemore's 17 points matched his season high with his current team, though he did notch two 21-point efforts earlier in the season with Houston. The veteran was a big part of a valiant fourth-quarter comeback attempt by the Lakers, during which they nearly erased a 27-point deficit. McClemore has drained 10 three-pointers over his past four contests, demonstrating his primary value to the team. He could continue to find minutes in the teens even after Los Angeles gets healthy if he is able to consistently drain shots from deep.
McLemore recorded 17 points (6-12 FG, 5-10 3Pt), a rebound and a steal across 23 minutes in Saturday's 126-101 win over the Nets.
McLemore came in handy after Dennis Schroder's ejection, but the recent acquisition had already made his presence known independently in his debut on Thursday night. The loss of LeBron James (ankle) has capped the Lakers' ability to move the offense, and a guard with McLemore's spot-up shooting ability should help bridge the gap until Los Angeles' two superstars return from injury.
McLemore posted six points (1-4 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT) and two rebounds across 17 minutes during Thursday's 110-104 loss to Miami.
In his first game with the Lakers, McLemore put forth a fairly forgettable display in limited action off the bench. That said, the four trips to the foul line matched a season high for the 28-year-old guard who normally does his damage from downtown. McLemore will likely see a smaller workload when Kyle Kuzma (calf) and Talen Horton-Tucker (suspension) return to action.
Lakers head coach Frank Vogel indicated that McLemore is on track to make his team debut Thursday against the Heat, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Los Angeles didn't include McLemore on its Wednesday's injury report, which seemingly suggests that he's passed all COVID-19 intake testing. McLemore is expected to contend for a second-unit role for a Lakers squad that could use some extra scoring punch while Anthony Davis (calf) and LeBron James (ankle) remain sidelined indefinitely.
McLemore agreed to a one-year contract with the Lakers on Tuesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
After being waived by Houston a few days ago, McLemore quickly found a new home in Los Angeles. In 32 games for the Rockets this season, the 27-year-old wing averaged 7.4 points on 35.7 percent shooting from the field to go with 2.1 rebounds and 1.7 triples per game. The Lakers are already relatively deep on the wing, so McLemore will likely have a fairly limited role off the bench.
McLemore has been waived by the Rockets, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
McLemore was recently cut from Houston's rotation as the Rockets continue to focus on the future, so this move was is not completely surprising. The sharpshooting wing is expected to see interest from several contenders on the free-agent market.
McLemore (coach's decision) went unused Monday in the Rockets' 120-110 loss to the Grizzlies.
McLemore had hit double figures in the scoring column while playing 20-plus minutes in each of the last three games, but he lost out on a rotation spot with both Danuel House (personal) and Avery Bradley (calf) cleared to return from multi-game absences. In addition to House and Bradley, Sterling Brown and Kevin Porter also look to be ahead of McLemore in the pecking order for playing time on the wing.
McLemore will come off the bench Saturday against the Timberwolves, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
The 28-year-old started Friday and put up 21 points (7-15 FG, 7-14 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists and one steal, but he'll shift back to the bench with Kevin Porter (quadriceps) rejoining the lineup. McLemore should still be included in the rotation but will have a lesser role as a reserve.
McLemore tallied 21 points (7-15 FG, 7-14 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists and one steal in 36 minutes during Friday's 107-101 loss to the Timberwolves.
McLemore shifted into the starting lineup after Danuel House (personal) was ruled out. McLemore went off for a season-high 21 points, including seven triples, making the most of his opportunity. House has already been ruled out Saturday. While the upside is basically non-existent for McLemore, he could once again be a passable streaming option if you need perimeter scoring.
McLemore will start Friday's game against the Timberwolves, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.
McLemore will get the nod while Danuel House comes off the bench. In three prior starts this season, McLemore has averaged 10.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 27.7 minutes.
McLemore notched 14 points (4-10 FG, 4-10 3PT, 2-2 FT) over 23 minutes in a 122-97 loss to the Hornets on Wednesday.
McLemore tied his season high of four three-pointers made. Wednesday's performance was a bit surprising considering he's shooting just 31 percent from deep this season. The guard usually doesn't play many minutes and rarely shoots the three-point ball as much as he did against the Hornets. Don't expect the 28-year-old to achieve a performance like this anytime soon as he was granted additional minutes because the game was a blowout. Due to the Rocket's struggles this season, McLemore has received more court time than usual as the team hopes to develop more of their bench players.
McLemore (not injury related) is off the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Thunder, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
McLemore only ended up on the injury report due to an error, so his availability for Sunday isn't surprising. However, he was a DNP-CD in the Rockets' latest game against the Pistons.
McLemore is likely to be available Sunday against the Thunder, as an error in the NBA's official injury report listed his status from Dec. 23, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.
Both McLemore and Kenyon Martin were in self-isolation Dec. 23 when Sunday's game was initially supposed to be played and ended up being postponed until this Sunday. Barring anything unforeseen, he should be available against the Thunder.
McLemore will not play Sunday against the Thunder due to self-isolation.
Both McLemore and Kenyon Martin are self-isolating and away from the team. In their absences, Mason Jones, Danuel House, Sterling Brown and D.J. Wilson are all candidates to see more minutes.
McLemore (ankle) is available for Friday's game against the Pistons, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
After missing the past two games due to a left ankle sprain, McLemore will suit up for Friday's contest. In 16.1 minutes per game this season, he's averaged 6.6 points and 2.3 rebounds.
