Schroder registered 14 points (6-9 FG, 2-2 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists and a steal across 25 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Rockets.
Schroder was one of six Lakers players to score in double digits in this one, which has been a noticeable trend for the German playmaker -- he has registered 10 or more points in all but two games in 2020-21, though those two games have come over Schroder's last four appearances. He has been a reliable scoring threat in the backcourt but, as a secondary option in an attack led by LeBron James and Anthony Davis, Schroder's upside won't be as high as it was last season when he played for the Thunder.
Schroder recorded six points (3-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 27 minutes during Thursday's 118-109 loss to the Spurs.
Thursday marked Schroder's worst performance of the season. It was his first time scoring in single digits and also his first time dishing fewer than three assists. He should have an easier time against the Bulls on Friday, as Chicago has the sixth-worst defensive rating (114.2).
Schroder scored 12 points (5-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT) to go with six assists and two rebounds across 36 minutes in a 94-92 win over Memphis on Tuesday.
Schroder was just the third Laker to score in the double digits in the second of back-to-back games against Memphis. The guard's offense hasn't been a necessity like it was with the Thunder and has led to Schroder averaging his lowest field-goal attempts per game since 2015. However, Schroder is averaging nearly one more rebound and one more assist per game since moving into a starting role in Los Angeles.
Schroder totaled 21 points (9-15 FG, 3-5 3Pt), four rebounds and four assists in a win over the Spurs on Wednesday.
He also led the team with five turnovers, but Schroder nonetheless enjoyed a fine night on offense, going 9-of-15 from the field and drilling a season-high three three-pointers. The 27-year-old has enjoyed a strong start to his Lakers career, averaging 17.6 points, 5.2 rebounds and 5.2 assists in 29.6 minutes through five games.
Schroder scored 11 points (5-10 FG, 0-3 3 PT, 1-1 FT) to go with four rebounds, four assists, a steal, and three turnovers in 25 minutes of Sunday's 127-91 win over Minnesota.
Schroder had a fairly casual outing as the Lakers took control of this game early and never relented. The guard is enjoying life so far in LA as a locked in starter providing for two of the best players in the game.
Schroder posted 14 points (5-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 12 rebounds and eight assists across 28 minutes in Tuesday's 116-109 loss to the Clippers.
The arrival of Schroder radically changes how the Lakers operate. Despite dropping the first game, Schroder looked poised as the floor general, a role usually reserved for LeBron James. As long as Paul Vogel continues to give Schroder starts, he'll deliver with a number of assists and points.
Schroder will start Tuesday's season opener against the Clippers, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.
It's not overly surprising news, but it's still notable since the 27-year-old finished as the runner-up for Sixth Man of the Year with Oklahoma City last season. Schroder averaged 18.9 points, 4.0 assists and 3.6 rebounds in 30.8 minutes during the 2019-20 campaign.
Schroder (ankle) will be available to play in Tuesday's season opener against the Clippers, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.
Schroder has been dealing with a sprained ankle over the past few days after injuring it during the Lakers' preseason game against the Suns last Wednesday. The guard appears to be healthy however, as no one is listed on the Lakers' injury reported heading into Tuesday's opener versus the Clippers.
Schroder (ankle) will not place in Friday's exhibition game against the Suns, Eric Williams of Sports Illustrated reports.
Schroder is nursing a sprained ankle, so the Lakers are unsurprisingly erring on the side of caution here. He will have several more days to recover before the regular season tips off Tuesday against the Clippers. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will get the start Friday in his absence.
Schroder won't return to Wednesday's preseason game against the Suns due to a left ankle injury, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.
According to Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register, the 27-year-old suffered a mild ankle sprain and could be available for Friday's preseason finale. Schroder had seven points (3-6 FG, 1-4 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 24 minutes before the injury.
Schroder is not expected to play in Sunday's preseason game against the Clippers, but he will be available in case of emergency, Dave McMenamin of ESPN reports.
Schroder was in the starting lineup for Friday's opener, but he'll join LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Wesley Matthews in getting the night off Sunday.
Coach Frank Vogel said that he will give Schroder "strong consideration" as a potential starter, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.
Coach Vogel noted Schroder being a great fit next to LeBron James because of the guard's ability to be effective on and off the ball. Schroder was second in Sixth Man of the Year voting last season behind now-teammate Montrezl Harrell, coming off the bench for all but two games. However, Schroder still saw 30.8 minutes per game, averaging 18.9 points, 4.0 assists and 3.6 rebounds. Notably, he improved his three-point shooting, hitting 38.5 percent of his 5.0 attempts per game. Keeping that efficiency steady will be a key for Schroder in playing alongside LeBron, whether the former starts or not.
The Lakers announced the acquisition of Schroder from the Thunder in exchange for Danny Green and the draft rights of Jaden McDaniels, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.
The trade has been agreed upon since Sunday morning, but the deal is now finalized with the selection of McDaniels with the 28th overall pick, who was ultimately sent to the Timberwolves. Schroder is poised to work as Los Angeles' No. 3 option on offense after averaging 18.9 points, 4.0 assists and 3.6 rebounds while shooting 38.5 percent on three-point attempts during the 2019-20 season for Oklahoma City.
Schroder is expected to be traded from the Thunder to the Lakers this week in exchange for Danny Green and the 28th overall pick of the 2020 NBA Draft, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Trades cannot be completed until the league moratorium is lifted Monday at noon ET, but the two sides are apparently in agreement on a deal. Schroder primarily came off the bench for Oklahoma City last season and averaged 18.9 points, 4.0 assists and 3.6 rebounds while shooting 38.5 percent from deep. The 27-year-old would serve as Los Angeles' No. 3 offensive option behind LeBron James and Anthony Davis, and the move would help cover the potential departures of Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley in free agency. Even if everything is agreed upon, the trade can't be finalized until Wednesday, as the Lakers must make the draft selection on behalf of the Thunder.
The Lakers are in "advanced talks" to acquire Schroder from the Thunder with trades officially allowed to be completed when the moratorium is lifted Monday at noon ET, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Los Angeles' No. 28 overall pick in Wednesday's draft is expected to be included as part of the return package for Oklahoma City, and according to Bobby Marks of ESPN.com, the trade cannot officially be completed until the Lakers actually make the selection. Schroder came off the bench in 63 of 65 games last season, and averaged 18.9 points, 3.6 rebounds and 4.0 assists while shooting 38.5 percent on three-point attempts.
Schroder was ejected from Saturday's Game 5 against the Rockets, Erik Horne of The Athletic reports.
Schroder was ejected for hitting P.J. Tucker in the groin while fighting through a screen during the third quarter. Tucker was ejected for headbutting Schroder after the play. Schroder finishes the game with 19 points (6-13 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 4-5 FT), one assist, one rebound, one steal and one block.
Schroder tallied 30 points (10-16 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 6-7 FT), three assists and one rebound in 31 minutes during Monday's 117-114 Game 4 win over the Rockets.
Schroder was spectacular once again, and he's now scored a combined 59 points across the last two contests. After totaling 19 points in the first two games of this series, Schroder has been sensational. He repeatedly blew past defenders off the dribble and drained several treys, coming up clutch with buckets galore in the second half. Schroder can be expected to stay in attack mode for Wednesday's Game 5.
Schroder finished with 29 points (10-23 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 7-9 FT), five rebounds, five assists and two steals in 39 minutes during Saturday's 119-107 victory in Game 23 over the Rockets.
Schroder finally got things going on the offensive end as the Thunder stole Game 3 and are now only one win away from leveling the series. The Thunder are running a very tight rotation at the moment, resulting in heavy minutes for Schroder despite coming off the bench. His value is typically reliant on his scoring numbers; however, he can be a sneaky source of assists and is worth considering in daily formats.
Schroder supplied 13 points (5-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds and five assists in 32 minutes during Thursday's 111-98 Game 2 loss to the Rockets.
The typically reliable veteran hasn't been able to replicate his regular-season productivity thus far in this first-round playoff series. Schroder has combined for just 19 points on 24 field-goal attempts through the first two games of the first round, and he's handed out nine dimes versus six turnovers. Still, he's played 32 minutes in each of these first two tilts, so it seems likely that coach Billy Donovan will continue to rely on Schroder.
Schroder finished with 17 points (6-12 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, one rebound and one steal in 25 minutes during Friday's 107-103 loss to the Clippers.
Schroder was back on the court after missing the last few games due to the birth of his child, and he got plenty of run to get his legs back under him heading into the playoffs. He looked fantastic during his time on the floor, and Schroder's scoring off the bench could be a crucial factor for the Thunder in their upcoming series against the Rockets.
