Schroder admitted Tuesday that his conditioning has not returned fully after being out due to the league's health and safety protocols, Bill Oram of The Athletic reports.
Schroder averaged north of 32 minutes per game over the course of the regular season but only made it back to 29 in his second game back from his absence. It sounds like he's still not quite ready for his full workload, so it's possible his minutes will be slightly limited again during Wednesday's play-in game.
Schroder finished Sunday's 110-98 win over the Pelicans with 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt), four assists, three rebounds and two steals across 29 minutes.
Schroder is still shaking off the rust after missing seven straight contests while in the NBA's health and safety protocols from May 2 to May 12. He managed to play in both games of the Lakers' back-to-back set this weekend, which should help him gear up for Wednesday's postseason play-in game versus Golden State. Schroder finished his first season in Los Angeles with per-game averages of 15.4 points, 5.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds.
Schroder (COVID-19 protocols) will play Saturday against the Pacers, Mark Stein of The New York Times reports.
After seven missed games, Schroder will return to the lineup. He's not expected to be on a formal minutes limit, but we also shouldn't be surprised if he plays fewer minutes than usual.
Schroder (COVID-19 protocols) is technically available for Saturday's game against the Pacers but coach Frank Vogel is not sure if the point guard will play, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports. The Lakers are officially listing him as questionable.
Schroder last played April 30 and has been in health and safety protocols since. He's cleared to return to game action, but the Lakers could end up holding him out for conditioning reasons. If he does end up playing, the point guard would presumably be on a minutes limit.
Schroder is expected to remain out for 10-to-14 days due to the league's health and safety protocols, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Things continue to go from bad to worse for the Lakers, who dropped embarrassing games to Sacramento and Toronto over the weekend, despite LeBron James (ankle) and Anthony Davis playing in both contests. Los Angeles will now be without its third-best player for at least the next week-and-a-half, meaning Schroder will likely only be able to play in one or two regular-season games before the start of the postseason -- or, at the rate the Lakers are losing games, perhaps the Western Conference play-in tournament.
Schroder (calf) won't play Sunday against the Raptors due the league's health and safety protocols, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.
The 27-year-old was considered probable with the calf issue, but he's now unavailable due to the COVID-19 protocols. It's unclear how long Schroder will be sidelined, but he also figures to be unavailable for the second half of the back-to-back set Monday against Denver.
Schroder (calf) is probable for Sunday's contest against the Raptors.
Schroder continues to be listed as probable and hasn't missed any time since late February. In April, he averaged 15.8 points, 8.3 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.1 steals.
Schroder (calf) is available for Friday's game against the Kings, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.
Schroder was probable for Friday's contest, so it isn't very surprising to see him available against Sacramento. He's averaged 18.0 points, 9.4 assists and 3.2 rebounds in 35.2 minutes per game across the last five contests.
Schroder (calf) is probable for Friday's game against the Kings, Harrison Faigen of Silver Screen and Roll reports.
Schroder has been battling various injuries of late but he isn't expected to miss time. The 27-year-old hasn't missed a game since late February.
Schroder accumulated 13 points (5-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight assists and four rebounds in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 116-107 loss to the Wizards.
The 27-year-old snapped his three game double-double streak but still provided a decent line for his fantasy managers. Schroder now has at least eight assists in six out of his last seven games, a span in which he's averaged 17.5 points, 9.0 assists, 1.4 three-pointers and 0.9 steals. The eighth-year guard will look to steer the fifth-seeded Lakers back into the win column Friday at home against the Kings.
Schroder (calf) is starting Wednesday at Washington, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.
The 27-year-old was considered probable with soreness in his left calf, so it's no surprise to see him in Wednesday's starting five. Schroder has averaged 20.4 points, 9.4 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 36.0 minutes over the past five games.
Schroder (calf) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game at Washington.
Schroder has been playing through a sore left calf of late, but he didn't appear affected Monday against Orlando, as he notched his third straight double-double by way of 21 points and 10 assists. Schroder has played 38, 37 and 38 minutes over the last three games.
Schroder (calf) registered 21 points (10-18 FG, 1-3 3Pt), 10 assists and two rebounds across 38 minutes during Monday's 114-103 win over the Magic.
Schroder has recorded double-doubles in three straight games, the longest such streak of his career and first time he's managed consecutive double-doubles since Dec. 14 and 15 of 2017. During this span, Schroder is averaging 20.7 points, 11.0 assists and 2.7 rebounds per contest. His production has actually increased since Anthony Davis returned from a calf injury, and Schroder should remain the Lakers' main play-making option out of the backcourt while LeBron James (ankle) continues to miss time.
Schroder (calf) will play Monday against the Magic.
Schroder has been dealing with a variety of injuries of late, but he'll continue to play through them. The starting point guard went for a double-double in Saturday's loss to Dallas, and he'll continue to have a heightened playmaking role while LeBron James (ankle) remains out.
Schroder is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Magic due to a sore left calf.
Schroder apparently picked up the injury during Sunday's loss to the Mavs, which he finished with 16 points, 10 assists, four rebounds and a steal in 37 minutes. The point guard has scored in double figures in four straight games while racking up 23 assists over his last two contests alone.
Schroder scored 16 points (7-18 FG, 2-8 3Pt) and dropped 10 assists Saturday in a loss to the Mavericks.
Schroder finished with his second straight double-double and fifth overall of the campaign, but it wasn't enough to help the Lakers fend off a determined Dallas team. The veteran point guard is averaging 20.3 points, 9.3 assists and 4.0 rebounds over his past four games, though Los Angeles has won only once in that span.
Schroder (foot) will play Saturday against the Mavericks, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
As expected, Schroder will start despite a foot infection. This month, he's averaged 16.3 points, 8.1 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 32.5 minutes.
Schroder (foot) is probable for Saturday's contest against the Mavericks.
Schroder has been dealing with a foot infection lately, but it hasn't stopped him from playing. This month, he's averaged 16.3 points, 8.1 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 32.5 minutes.
Schroder recorded 25 points (9-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 13 assists and two rebounds across 38 minutes in Thursday's 115-110 loss to the Mavericks.
Although he fouled out with 18 seconds remaining in the game, it was a heroic performance from Schroder, who helped bring his team back from the brink with the help of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in the third quarter, only to see their lead evaporate when Schroder took a seat at the end of the stanza. It's just another example of Schroder's impact on the squad, especially with LeBron James (ankle) out of action.
Schroder (foot) will play Thursday against the Mavericks.
Schroder will continue to play through a foot infection as expected. The starting point guard should see his usual workload in Thursday's game.
