Lakers Injury Report: Cam Reddish Hurt, Ruled Out Of Ongoing Jazz Game

LA will be without its starting shooting guard for the rest of the night.

Los Angeles Lakers starting shooting guard Cam Reddish has been ruled out of the rest of tonight's ongoing In-Season Tournament pool play bout with the Utah Jazz, still in its opening half.

Per Jovan Buha of The Athletic, the 6'8" swingman has been ruled out with groin soreness for the rest of the evening. He departed the matchup early in the contest's opening quarter, having played just 5:08 of action. The former lottery pick out of Duke finished with one foul as his only stat.

Second-year ex-Michigan State shooting guard Max Christie should see a lot more run tonight. He's struggled with his jumper of late, but projects as an intriguing 3-and-D fit. Maybe some added time will help him find his footing a bit for a Lakers team now in need of a perimeter boost. Recently-demoted sixth man combo guard Austin Reaves will likely get increased minutes, too.

Since he was promoted to a full-time starting role six games ago, Reddish has been scoring at a hyper-efficient clip, averaging 12.7 points on .500/.464/.818 shooting splits, three rebounds, 2.8 steals and 1.3 dimes a night.
