by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lakers' Alex Caruso: Expected to go Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caruso is probable for Tuesday's game against Brooklyn due to a sore right hamstring, Harrison Faigen of Silver Screen & Roll reports.

Caruso managed to play through this same issue Sunday, so he's expected to be ready to roll Tuesday evening. An official update should come closer to tipoff.

Lakers' Alex Caruso: Probable again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caruso was also probable for Friday's win over the Bucks with the right hamstring soreness, and he had eight points (3-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one block in 18 minutes. The 26-year-old seems likely to work in his usual role off the bench Sunday.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caruso (hamstring) will not play in Tuesday's game against the 76ers, Mark Medina of USA Today reports.

Lakers' Alex Caruso: Questionable for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caruso (hamstring) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the 76ers, Mike Bresnahan of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

Caruso was held out of Sunday's game with a hamstring injury, and his availability remains up in the air heading into Tuesday. The team should provide an update closer to tipoff.

Lakers' Alex Caruso: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Updating a previous report, Caruso (hamstring) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against New Orleans, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.

The Lakers initially stated that Caruso would play, but they've now reversed course and ruled the guard out of Sunday's game with a sore right hamstring. On a more positive note, the Lakers will get Danny Green (hip) back after Caruso started in his place Saturday night.

March 1, 2020 06:44 PM
Lakers' Alex Caruso: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caruso (hamstring) will be available for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies, Mike Trudell of Spectrum Sports reports.

Caruso was questionable coming in, but he'll be available for the Lakers on the second night of a back-to-back. With Danny Green out, Caruso made a spot start Saturday night in Memphis and finished with nine points and two rebounds in 21 minutes. Green will play Sunday, so Caruso will likely shift back to the bench.

Lakers' Alex Caruso: Banged up ahead of Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caruso is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Pelicans with a sore right hamstring, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

Caruso supplied nine points (3-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and one steal in Saturday's 105-88 loss to the Grizzlies, making his first start of the season in that contest in place of the injured Danny Green (hip). Though Green looks on track to return to action Sunday, Caruso is apparently banged up in the aftermath of Saturday's loss. Even if Caruso gets the green light to play, he'll likely move back to the bench and handle a lighter minutes load than he received versus Memphis.

Lakers' Alex Caruso: Starting vs. Grizzlies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caruso will start Saturday's game against the Grizzlies, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.

With Danny Green (hip) sidelined, coach Frank Vogel will hand Caruso his first start of the season. When seeing at least 24 minutes this season, Caruso is averaging 8.8 points, 2.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.4 steals.

February 23, 2020 06:52 PM
Lakers' Alex Caruso: Logs eight minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caruso had six points (3-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt) and one steal in eight minutes during Sunday's 114-112 win over the Celtics.

Caruso saw the lowest minute total among the 10 Lakers who appeared in this one. Moreover, Rajon Rondo posted four points, five dimes, five steals and one board in 22 minutes. Though Caruso boasts a more well-rounded skillset than Rondo, the latter typically earns more playing time than the former.

Lakers' Alex Caruso: Added to injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caruso is probable for Tuesday's game against the Spurs due to neck soreness.

Caruso was also added to the injury report ahead of the Lakers' last matchup due to the same issue, but he was ultimately cleared to take the court. He's averaging 5.4 points, 1.8 steals and 1.6 assists over his last five games off the bench.

February 2, 2020 01:52 AM
Lakers' Alex Caruso: Plays 16 minutes in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caruso managed 13 points (5-6 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT), two steals, one rebound and one assist in 16 minutes during Saturday's 129-113 victory over Sacramento.

Caruso has been battling a neck injury over the past week but was able to take his place in the lineup Saturday. The game was a blowout which allowed many of the fringe players to see additional playing time. Despite some upside, Caruso struggles to play meaningful minutes on a nightly basis and is only providing value in deeper formats at this stage.

February 1, 2020 05:40 PM
Lakers' Alex Caruso: Upgraded to probable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caruso (neck) is probable for Saturday's game against the Kings.

Despite some neck soreness, Caruso is likely to take the court. Over the past six games, he's averaging 3.2 points, 1.8 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.3 steals in 15.3 minutes.

January 30, 2020 08:40 PM
Lakers' Alex Caruso: Game-time call Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caruso is questionable for Friday's game against the Trail Blazers due to neck soreness.

The Lakers haven't taken the court since Saturday, so it's unknown as to when Caruso's neck injury popped up. His availability will likely be determined by how he fares during morning shootaround and pregame activities.

January 26, 2020 12:20 AM
Lakers' Alex Caruso: Swipes career-high six steals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caruso contributed four points (1-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six steals, three assists and one rebound in 20 minutes during Saturday's 108-91 loss to the 76ers.

Caruso struggled offensively but finished with a career high in steals. He has been held to single digits in scoring in six straight games, and Caruso has actually been less impactful here in 2019-20 than he was last year, although he has already appeared in a career-best 43 games this season.

January 18, 2020 02:20 PM
Lakers' Alex Caruso: Available to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caruso (neck) is available for Saturday's game against Houston, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

Caruso was forced to exit Wednesday's loss to the Magic early after being elbowed in the mouth. Fortunately, he's cleared concussion protocol and doesn't appear to have any lingering effects. Look for Caruso to take on his usual rotational role in which he's averaged 5.7 points, 1.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.0 steal in 19.2 minutes so far this season.

January 17, 2020 03:40 PM
Lakers' Alex Caruso: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caruso cleared the concussion protocol and is probable for Saturday's game at Houston with neck soreness, Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Caruso exited Wednesday's loss to the Magic after being elbowed in the mouth, but he was able to avoid a concussion and should be able to play Saturday. The 25-year-old should resume his role off the bench versus the Rockets.

January 16, 2020 09:28 PM
Lakers' Alex Caruso: Won't return Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caruso won't return to Wednesday's game against the Magic after being elbowed in the mouth during the first quarter, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.

Caruso's enmeshed in the concussion protocol after taking an errant elbow from Mo Bamba during the first quarter. He'll be re-evaluated Thursday and is at risk of being held out of Saturday's game against Houston depending on how well he's able to recover. Look for Troy Daniels and Quinn Cook to see an increase in minutes as long as Caruso's absent.

January 14, 2020 03:00 AM
Lakers' Alex Caruso: Serviceable production Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caruso tallied 10 points, six assists and one rebound in 23 minutes during Monday's 128-99 victory over Cleveland.

Caruso handed out six assists Sunday and could be in for an increased role over the next few games. Rajon Rondo (finger) could miss the next week of action making Caruso an intriguing target in deeper formats. The impending return of Anthony Davis (back) could certainly put a dampener on Caruso's opportunity, negating any appeal he might have in standard leagues.
