Austin Reaves’ hamstring injury timetable, revealed

Lakers, Austin Reaves

The Los Angeles Lakers placed rookie Austin Reaves on their injury report yesterday before their win against the Heat. According to ESPN’s NBA reporter Dave McMenamin, he will be out for at least the next two weeks.

The shooting guard from the University of Oklahoma is joined by teammate Rajon Rondo, who was also put on the injury report after suffering a hamstring injury. Rondo, however, is a game time decision.

Reaves has made his mark on the team so far this season, averaging 6.1 points, 2 rebounds and 1 assist each game. The team injury list is now up to 6 for the season, half of them being shooting guards.

Another huge name on this list is the team’s star small forward Lebron James. As of Tuesday, James is out of commission due to an abdominal injury until at least Sunday. Although he is unable to play, he is making his presence known court-side, coaching his teammates until he can join them on the court.

Shooting guards Talen Horton-Tucker and Kendrick Nunn are also looking to get back on the court this Sunday after being put on the injury report earlier today.

Despite their plague of injuries, the Lakers were able to defeat the Miami Heat in overtime last night.  They look ahead to face the Minnesota Timberwolves tomorrow at home.
