Jarred Vanderbilt News
Los Angeles Lakers forward Jarred Vanderbilt (foot) has officially been diagnosed with a right mid-foot sprain, and the team doctors will re-evaluate his status in three to four weeks, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN. The 24-year-old sprained his foot in their contest against the Boston Celtics on Feb. 1. Some reports, before he was officially diagnosed, said he may miss the rest of the season. He at least has a timetable to check his status before then and has a chance to be back for the end of the season and a potential playoff run. In the meantime, Christian Wood and Rui Hachimura will likely see added time and could serve as streaming options in a pinch.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Los Angeles Lakers forward Jarred Vanderbilt (foot) is expected to be sidelined "at least" a few weeks. However, the team will continue to consult with specialists, and it remains possible that he could miss the remainder of the 2023-24 campaign. The 24-year-old is having a down season, currently averaging 5.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 1.2 steals. Unfortunately, he's had trouble staying on the floor and began the season by missing the first 20 games because of a heel injury. Yet, his most recent ailment, a foot injury suffered during Thursday's win over Boston, could mean the end of his season. At any rate, the Lakers may look to make some moves ahead of the trade deadline to fill the void. But if the team doesn't make a deal, Rui Hachimura and Christian Wood could fight for minutes moving ahead.
Los Angeles Lakers forward Jarred Vanderbilt (foot) was forced to exit the team's game against the Boston Celtics on Thursday after suffering a foot injury in the second quarter. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Vanderbilt is now expected to miss "several weeks" and there are still more tests that need to be done. There's a chance that it could be more serious and cause him to miss even more time than that. The 24-year-old missed the first month of the season with some injury issues as well and then went on to play around 20 minutes a contest and averaged 5.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and 1.2 steals per game. His extended absence should translate to more opportunities for Rui Hachimura and Christian Wood as long as the Lakers don't make any moves before the trade deadline.
Los Angeles Lakers forward Jarred Vanderbilt (foot) didn't return to Thursday's game after suffering an injury in the second quarter. Vanderbilt was given the starting nod but unfortunately tapped out right before halftime due to a right foot injury. Luckily, the X-rays were negative, so fantasy managers should consider Vanderbilt as day-to-day heading into the weekend. Rui Hachimura started during the second half of Thursday's game. He figures to see heavy minutes if the Lakers are without LeBron James and Vanderbilt this weekend.
