The Lakers, already missing Anthony Davis due to an aggravated right Achilles, also went without the services of Dennis Schroder for Thursday’s high-profile matchup between L.A. and the Brooklyn Nets. The 27-year-old is being held out due to the league’s Health and Safety Protocols.
Following the Lakers’ 109-98 defeat, coach Frank Vogel did not have a firm timetable for Schroder’s return.
“I don’t know, to be honest right now,” Vogel told reporters.
Schroder is averaging 14.2 points, 4.3 assists, and 3.6 rebounds while shooting 44.1% for the Lakers (22-7), who entered the game with the second-best record in league behind the Utah Jazz.
A former first-round pick of Atlanta in 2013, Schroder joined the Lakers in November via trade from Oklahoma City.
