Details

Cam Reddish, a forward for the Los Angeles Lakers, is sidelined for an unspecified period due to a sprained right ankle. The team made the announcement on Friday, stating he’ll be reassessed in a fortnight.

The 24-year-old player sustained the injury during the fourth quarter of the Lakers’ 127-116 defeat to the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday. Consequently, he was absent during the Lakers’ 141-132 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Thursday.

A few NBA betting sites place the Lakers as the ninth most likely team to clinch this season’s championship. Teams like the Denver Nuggets, Los Angeles Clippers, and Oklahoma City Thunder are given better odds by the sportsbooks.

A tweet from Jovan Buha confirmed that Cam Reddish was diagnosed with a right ankle sprain by team doctors. The team will re-evaluate his condition in around two weeks.

Reddish has started 26 out of 35 games with Los Angeles this season. The five-year veteran averages 6.7 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.2 steals, and 23.3 minutes per game.

His shooting stats include a 40.5% success rate from the floor, 33.7% from deep, and a career-low 78.3% at the foul line. In a match against the Portland Trail Blazers on Nov. 12, which the Lakers won 116-110, Reddish scored a season-high 18 points.

Reddish inked a two-year, $4.6 million contract with the club in July 2023.

Injury woes continue for the Lakers as Cam Reddish (ankle) is out indefinitely, joining Gabe Vincent (knee). The Lakers’ injury report also lists superstars LeBron James (undisclosed) and Anthony Davis (undisclosed) as questionable for Saturday night’s road game against the Golden State Warriors.

Meanwhile, guard Gabe Vincent (knee) is still out indefinitely, but forward Maxwell Lewis (illness) has been upgraded to probable.

The Lakers have a 6-4 record in their last 10 games. They have a 7-2 record in their past nine encounters with Golden State. However, they have a dismal 6-14 record in their previous 20 road games against the Warriors.

A tweet from SportsCenter asked fans about their all-time Lakers vs. Warriors teams.

Three Golden State players — guards Chris Paul (hand) and Gary Payton II (hamstring), and forward Moses Moody (calf) — are still out indefinitely. The Dubs have a 4-6 record in their last 10 games.

The Warriors have been on a losing streak in their last six meetings against a Western Conference opponent. They have a 1-6 record in their last seven games against a Pacific Division team.

NBA sportsbooks have the Lakers as 1.5-point underdogs against the Warriors for Saturday’s game. According to ESPN’s Basketball Power Index, Golden State has a 68.5% chance of defeating Los Angeles.
