Lakers' Moritz Wagner: Nearing return to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (knee) has been participating in some non-contact drills and some controlled contact post work in practice, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.

Wagner was forced to miss the whole preseason due to a knee contusion, although it's good to see that he's been getting some work in during practice. His status for the season opener Thursday against Portland has yet to be revealed, but he's expected to be reevaluated in the next few days to determine his availability moving forward.

Lakers' Kentavious Caldwell-Pope: Goes through practice with starters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caldwell-Pope (knee) took part in practice Monday and worked with the starting group, Bill Oram of The Athletic reports.

Caldwell-Pope was held out of the preseason finale Friday due to tendinitis in his knee, but the issue doesn't appear to be anything of great concern, even though he was held out of the final scrimmage Monday as a precaution. "In my medical opinion I think he's going to be just fine," head coach Luke Walton said after the session. Perhaps the more relevant news is that Caldwell-Pope worked as a starter alongside Rajon Rondo in the backcourt, which could be an indication of how Walton is leaning in advance of the regular season opener Thursday in Portland. Caldwell-Pope has been in competition, primarily, with Josh Hart for the starting shooting guard job, and Walton said Monday that he'll continue to evaluate the position on a daily basis.

Lakers' Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk: Best game of preseason in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Lakers' JaVale McGee: Racks up 14 points in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGee mustered 14 points (3-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 7-8 FT), six rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block across 18 minutes in the Lakers' 119-105 preseason win over the Warriors on Friday.

McGee was highly efficient during his brief time on the floor, checking off every box on the stat sheet while posting his best scoring total since Oct. 2 against the Nuggets. The 30-year-old is set to open the season as the starting center. However, he hasn't averaged 20 minutes per contest since the 2011-12 season, so his overall upside is likely to be somewhat capped by his playing time limitations.

Lakers' Lonzo Ball: Draws second straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball collected eight points (3-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt), seven assists and six rebounds across 24 minutes in the Lakers' 119-115 preseason win over the Warriors on Friday.

Ball encouragingly took the floor for the second time in three nights, seemingly corroborating the readiness of his knee for the regular season. The 2018 second overall pick upped his minute total by one over that of his preseason debut Wednesday, although he was less sharp with his shot than in that contest. With a pair of exhibitions under his belt, Ball shouldn't have too much of a minutes cap -- if any -- when the Lakers open the regular season against the Trail Blazers next Thursday.
