Mykhailiuk collected 18 points (6-13 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four assists, three rebounds, and one steal in 25 minutes during Saturday's 93-73 win over the Trail Blazers.
Mykhailiuk returned to action for the first time since his mid-April surgery on his broken left index finger. He showed off the shooting stroke that has always been his number one calling card, and Mykhailiuk will look to continue showcasing his ability to score from the perimeter since that's among the team's biggest needs.
Mykhailiuk (finger) is listed on the Pistons' Las Vegas Summer League roster, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
As a second-year player who saw action in 42 games between the Lakers and Pistons as a rookie, Mykhailiuk may not be asked to play extended minutes during the summer slate. That said, his inclusion on the roster implies that he's made a full recovery from the procedure he required in April to address a broken left index finger. The 22-year-old will look to impress in whatever run he sees in Las Vegas with the hope of cracking the Pistons' rotation once the regular season arrives.
Mykhailiuk underwent surgery Wednesday to address his left index finger injury, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
Mykhailiuk, after he goes through rehab, should be ready for a full offseason of basketball activities. He appeared in 42 games during his rookie campaign, averaging 3.2 points across 10.5 minutes.
Mykhailiuk will be inactive for Friday's contest against the Thunder due to a broken left finger, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.
Although it's unlikely going to impact the rotation at all, Mykhailiuk will be sidelined for at least Friday's matchup versus Oklahoma City because of a broken left index finger. Mykhailiuk will probably need more than one game off to fully recover.
Mykhailiuk was recalled from the G League on Thursday, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
Mykhailiuk hasn't had much of a role with the Pistons since being traded to Detroit. He's played just twice since Feb. 11. It doesn't seem like that will change soon.
The Pistons assigned Mykhailiuk to the G League's Grand Rapids Drive on Wednesday, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.
He'll presumably suit up in each of the Drive's final three regular-season contests, set for Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Mykhailiuk has suited up in seven G League contests this season, averaging 26.0 points (on 46.4 percent shooting from the field), 3.4 triples, 3.1 assists, 2.7 rebounds, and 0.9 steals in 31.5 minutes per game.
Mykhailiuk was assigned to the G League's Grand Rapids Drive on Friday, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
Mykhailiuk has been a healthy inactive for each of the last two games for Detroit, so while the team makes a trip to Chicago on Friday, the rookie out of Kansas will have the opportunity for extended playing time with the Drive against the Erie BayHawks.
Mykhailiuk won't be active for Wednesday's game against Minnesota, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
Mykhailiuk won't be active for the second-straight game after playing five minutes Saturday against Cleveland. He was held out of the rotation for much of February and doesn't figure to see many minutes going forward unless some injuries occur.
Mykhailiuk has been activated for Saturday's contest against the Cavaliers, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
The rookie hasn't appeared in a game since Feb. 8, which was his only outing for the Pistons, though it appears he could get some run Saturday. His best chance of seeing the floor is probable if Saturday's game gets out of hand.
Mykhailiuk won't play in Wednesday's game against the Celtics, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.
Mykhailiuk doesn't appear to be in a spot to make a fantasy impact. Depending on the Piston's playoff chances, there may some minutes for him as the season draws on, but for now he's on the outside looking in of the Pistons regular rotations.
Mykhailiuk will debut for the Pistons on Friday against the Knicks, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
Mykhailiuk averaged just under 11 minutes per game over 39 appearances for the Lakers this season and that same role seems like it will hold true with the Pistons as he competes for playing time with Bruce Brown, Luke Kennard and Khyri Thomas.
Mykhailiuk will be traded to the Pistons on Wednesday along with a draft pick in exchange for Reggie Bullock, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The rookie has played in 38 games so far this season, averaging 3.2 points, 0.8 assists, 0.8 rebounds and 0.3 steals in just under 11 minutes per game. He will now join a Piston team where he will compete with a flurry of young wings in Bruce Brown, Luke Kennard and Khyri Thomas for minutes.
Mykhailiuk logged 19 minutes off the bench Monday in the Lakers' 130-111 loss to the Warriors, finishing with five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt), three rebounds and two assists.
For the fourth consecutive game, Mykhailiuk received minutes in the teens, but a 35 percent mark from the field during that stretch has limited the impact of the rookie's overall output. While injuries to LeBron James (groin), Lonzo Ball (ankle) and Rajon Rondo (hand) have opened up a rotation spot of late for Mykhailiuk, there's a good chance the second-round pick will soon see his path to minutes close up. Rondo is on track to play in the Lakers' next game Thursday against the Timberwolves, while James is in the day-to-day phase of his recovery and may only be a game or two away from suiting up again.
Mykhailiuk supplied 47 points (16-23 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 10-11 FT), two assists, two rebounds, two steals and one block across 34 minutes Saturday in the G League's South Bay Lakers 119-114 win over the Northern Arizona Suns.
After playing only three total minutes at the NBA level in Los Angeles' last five games, Mykhailiuk was sent to the G League in search of playing time and certainly made the most of the deployment. He could be back with the parent club as soon as Sunday's game against the Kings, but this performance probably won't be enough to earn the rookie second-round pick a spot in the Lakers' rotation.
Mykhailiuk managed 12 points (4-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four assists, and one rebound in 18 minutes during Saturday's 128-100 win over the Hornets.
Mykhailiuk has earned double-digit minutes in five of the first seven December games, and he contributed career highs in scoring and assists in this one. It's also the second time in the last four games that Mykhailiuk has canned three three-pointers. The absence of Brandon Ingram (ankle), who is expected to miss at least the next two games, is providing Mykhailiuk an opportunity and he's making the most of it.
Mykhailiuk tallied 29 points (11-21 FG, 7-9 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and a steal in the win Wednesday over the Legends.
Mykhailiuk scored a game-high 29 points, but it was perhaps more surprising to see the forward attempt 21 shots considering only three other members of South Bay took 10 or more shots from the field Wednesday. In just two games with South Bay, the 21-year-old is averaging 25.0 points and 41.5 percent from the field.
Mykhailiuk generated 22 points (8-18 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four assists and one rebound across 32 minutes in the Lakers' 119-105 preseason win over the Warriors on Friday.
Mykhailiuk had been unable to carry over any momentum from a stellar summer league stint into the preseason until Friday, when he exploded for a team-high scoring total off the bench. The 2018 second-round pick drained 44.4 percent of his preseason-high number of shot attempts, as he flashed the aggressiveness that led to him averaging 16.6 points on 48.0 percent shooting over seven contests in Las Vegas. Despite the fact he carries plenty of upside, Mykhailiuk doesn't figure to have the opportunity for much playing time at the NBA level during his rookie campaign, and he's likely to instead continue his development in the G-League.
Mykhailiuk generated 10 points (3-10 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and two assists across 23 minutes during the Lakers' 91-73 loss to the Trail Blazers in the Las Vegas Summer League championship game Tuesday.
Although he closed out summer league play in modest fashion relative to his other efforts, Mykailiuk still set the stage for a strong training camp and preseason with a sensational body of work overall in Las Vegas. The rookie finished with averages of 16.6 points (on 48.0 percent shooting), 4.0 rebounds and 2.1 assists across 24.7 minutes over seven games, displaying a deft shooting touch from all over the court in nearly every contest. He'll look to continue making an equally strong impression this fall in an attempt to secure a steady second-unit backcourt role during his first NBA campaign.
Mykhailiuk scored 31 points (12-20 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 1-2 Ft) while adding four rebounds, an assist and a steal in 33 minutes during Monday's 112-109 double-overtime win over the Cavaliers in the summer league semi-final.
The 47th overall pick in this year's draft has formed a nearly unstoppable duo with Josh Hart in Vegas, carrying the Lakers all the way to Tuesday's final. Mykhailiuk could find it difficult to earn regular minutes in the NBA during the regular season with veterans like Lance Stephenson looking for court time on the wing, but he could emerge as a long-range threat on the second unit if he gets an opportunity.
Mykhailiuk finished with 19 points (7-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds and two assists across 21 minutes during the Lakers' 101-78 win over the Pistons in a Las Vegas Summer League quarterfinal-round contest Sunday.
The rookie has consistently turned heads in Las Vegas, with Sunday's stellar effort the latest example. Mykhailiuk was already averaging 14.0 points (on 48.0 percent shooting), 4.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists across 23.8 minutes over four games heading into Sunday's action, and partly due to his production against the Pistons, he'll have additional opportunity to continue impressing in summer league play during the semifinal round.
