Tuesday, May 30 2023

January was a rough month for the Los Angeles Lakers, as they were without the services of Anthony Davis, Lonnie Walker IV and Austin Reaves for most of the month.

Somehow, they managed to go 9-7 during that span despite being very shorthanded.

But lately, Los Angeles has been getting healthier. It recently welcomed Davis back from a stress injury in his right foot, and he has returned to his dominant self, as he has put up at least 31 points and 14 rebounds in both of his last two games.

Walker also came back over a week ago, and although he has been inconsistent since then, the team is glad to have him in the lineup.

Reaves has been out since the first week of January with a hamstring injury, but there is a good chance the guard will play on Tuesday when the Lakers host the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Reaves may not be a star, but he is a multi-faceted role player who can hit 3-pointers, attack the basket, absorb contact and draw fouls, handle the ball a bit and make plays on defense.

His presence on Tuesday should help the Lakers contain Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who is sixth in scoring average at 30.8 points per game this season.
