The Lakers will be down both D'Angelo Russell and Cam Reddish on Sunday with the status of both uncertain moving forward.

The Lakers’ time as a relatively injury-free team was short-lived as both D’Angelo Russell and Cam Reddish are the newest additions to the injury report. Both players are listed as out for the Lakers ahead of Sunday's game in New Orleans, the former with a tailbone contusion and the latter with a groin strain.

Prior to the game, head coach Darvin Ham spoke about both of their injuries with both being considered day-to-day.

Interestingly, with Reddish, Ham spoke about him suffering from groin strains on both legs currently. He has missed multiple games this season with the groin strains.

As for Russell’s injury, it came following him taking a charge against the Wolves. Given the designation of it being a “stinger” and being called day-to-day, it sounds a bit more short-term.

Also, in the same presser, Ham mentioned a lineup change that would be intact for the “foreseeable future,” which would seem to indicate a potential extended absence for Reddish, who has been a mainstay in the starting lineup for most of the season.

The new lineup has yet to be revealed, but it’s more injuries to battle moving forward. At this point, the Lakers probably need to worry less about getting healthy and worry more and working with what they have at any given time. The season isn’t going any slower and the injuries aren’t going away.

The last time Reddish missed time, Rui Hachimura stepped into the starting lineup in a surprise move. Austin Reaves has also seemingly been long overdue for realignment back into the starting lineup.

Whatever it may be, it’s another challenge for a Lakers team that has constantly dealt with injuries this year.
