Top Austin Reaves News

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Posts career-high 35 points in win

    Reaves registered 35 points (9-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 16-18 FT), six rebounds and six assists across 30 minutes during Sunday's 111-105 victory over the Magic.

    Reaves was brilliant off the bench, scoring 13 points in the fourth quarter while piling up trips to the foul line. He broke his career record with 18 free-throw attempts, converting those opportunities at a healthy clip. The second-year pro has carved a significant role this season, although his minutes appeared to be at risk with the arrivals of D'Angelo Russell and Malik Beasley at the trade deadline. While Russell has been installed as the team's starting point guard, Reaves has consistently outplayed Beasley since his arrival, though head coach Darvin Ham seems satisfied with Reaves' current sixth-man role. Even if Reaves keeps coming off the bench, he could continue to see ample playing time due to his ability to draw fouls and convert at a respectable rate from downtown.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Racks up 24 points off bench

    Reaves posted 24 points (6-14 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 11-13 FT), seven assists, four rebounds and one steal in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 114-110 loss to the Rockets.

    The Lakers were missing both Anthony Davis (foot) and LeBron James (foot) against Houston, and it was Reaves who emerged as the team's leading scorer. The second-year guard hit the 20-point mark for the fifth time this season, finishing just one point shy of his campaign-high total. Reaves did much of his work from the charity stripe, knocking down a season-high 11 free throws on 13 attempts. For good measure, Reaves finished one assist shy of his campaign-best mark to cap the all-around strong effort.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Keeps scoring streak alive

    Reaves logged 14 points (4-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-5 FT), four rebounds, five assists and one steal over 29 minutes during Tuesday's 123-108 victory over the Pelicans.

    Reaves was efficient from the field in Tuesday's win and has been excellent of late, scoring in double digits in his last five contests and seven of the previous eight. He's averaging 14.7 points per game while shooting 56.1 percent from the field and 47.4 percent from deep since the beginning of March and could be a solid streaming options for fantasy managers in need of a scoring punch and three-point shooting.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Logs 17 points off bench

    Reaves finished Tuesday's 112-103 win over Memphis with 17 points (6-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), four rebounds, seven assists and one steal across 33 minutes.

    Malik Beasley couldn't get many shots to fall, so Reaves stepped in and logged 33 minutes in the win. Reaves' numbers are largely unaffected by Beasley's arrival, and coach Darvin Ham tends to keep him in the game if the Oklahoma product is dialed in. Reaves also enjoyed a slightly higher usage rate due to D'Angelo Russell's (ankle) absence.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Continues red-hot shooting

    Reaves chipped in 19 points (5-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 8-9 FT), four assists and one steal in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 123-117 victory over Oklahoma City.

    Reaves' offense was much needed Wednesday with the Lakers playing a critical contest without LeBron James (foot), Anthony Davis (foot) and D'Angelo Russell (ankle). While Reaves didn't start, he saw ample court time and made a big impact with a perfect 5-for-5 mark from the field while draining eight of nine free-throw attempts. The Oklahoma product has converted at least half of his field-goal tries in each of his past six games and is shooting an impressive 71.9 percent, including 52.9 percent from three-point range, over that stretch.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Drains four triples in loss

    Reaves finished with 17 points (5-8 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds, seven assists, one block and one steal over 27 minutes during Tuesday's 121-109 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Reaves got the most minutes of any Los Angeles reserve Tuesday and turned the opportunity into a big offensive effort. The second-year guard was very efficient with a 5-for-8 shooting line, with all but one of those attempts and makes coming from three-point range. Reaves also tied his season high with seven assists to round out a solid stat line. Since returning from a lengthy injury absence Feb. 7, Reaves has alternated single-digit and double-digit scoring performances over eight contests, emphasizing the inconsistency that makes him a difficult player to roster in fantasy.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Drops 17 points off bench

    Reaves logged 17 points (6-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, four assists and two steals in 19 minutes during Thursday's 124-111 win over the Warriors.

    Reaves came off the bench once again Thursday, but he was perfect from the floor and finished with the team's second-highest scoring total in the victory. He's scored in double figures in three of his last five appearances and has averaged 11.6 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 23.4 minutes per game during that time.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Sizzles in first half Thursday

    Reaves contributed 18 points (7-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal across 25 minutes during Thursday's 115-106 loss to the Bucks.

    Reaves caught fire in the first half in his second game back from a hamstring injury, tallying 13 points in just 11 minutes on 5-for-6 shooting from the field (including a perfect 3-for-3 mark from long distance). He came back down to earth after halftime but still finished with his highest point total since scoring 20 against Charlotte on Dec. 23. Reaves saw 25 minutes against Milwaukee with the Lakers severely shorthanded, but it remains to be seen how his role will shift once the team deploys its trade-deadline acquisitions, including a pair of presumed new starting guards in D'Angelo Russell and Malik Beasley.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Gets light run in return

    Reaves (hamstring) played seven minutes off the bench in Tuesday's 133-130 loss to the Thunder, finishing with zero points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), one rebound and one assist.

    Playing for the first time since Jan. 4, Reaves ended up seeing his fewest minutes of the season while Lakers head coach Darvin Ham eased him back into the mix with a limited role. Considering that Reaves had averaged 10.8 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.3 three-pointers in 28.9 minutes per game prior to suffering the hamstring injury, he should eventually seize hold of a larger role on Los Angeles' second unit once he's fully ramped up.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Will make return Tuesday

    Reaves (hamstring) is available for Tuesday's game versus the Thunder.

    Reaves has been upgraded from probable to available Tuesday after missing the last 16 games with a left hamstring strain. The 24-year-old guard's return will likely result in fewer minutes for Max Christie and Troy Brown.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Will probably return Tuesday

    Reaves (hamstring) said he "feels great" and will be probable for Tuesday's matchup against the Thunder, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Reaves hasn't played since Jan. 4 due to a left hamstring strain, but it looks like his string of absences will come to a close Tuesday. The Lakers added Rui Hachimura since Reaves last played, plus Los Angeles will be at full strength, but the Oklahoma product is still expected to carve out a bench role moving forward. Across 36 appearances (12 starts) this season, Reaves is averaging 10.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 28.9 minutes per game.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Will remain out Saturday

    Reaves (hamstring) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Pelicans, Ryan Ward of reports.

    There was optimism that Reaves would be able to return from a month-long absence Saturday, but he'll ultimately be sidelined for at least one more contest due to a left hamstring strain. Head coach Darvin Ham said Thursday that the second-year pro is in the final stage of his recovery process, so it wouldn't be shocking to see Reaves without an injury designation for Tuesday's matchup against the Thunder.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Could return Saturday

    Reaves (hamstring), who is out Thursday against the Pacers, could return Saturday against the Pelicans, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Coach Darvin Ham noted that Reaves has one more hurdle to clear before being ready for game action. Once available, the defensive-minded wing will presumably be eased back into action. He's periodically started and has averaged 10.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 28.9 minutes this season.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Won't play Thursday

    Reaves (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Pacers, Ryan Ward of reports.

    Reaves is slated to be re-evaluated Thursday, but he'll be sidelined for at least one more game due to his hamstring issue. A better idea of his status will likely be revealed once he's re-evaluated by the team's medical staff.

  • Lakers' Austin Reaves: Re-evaluation coming Thursday

    Reaves (hamstring) will be re-evaluated Thursday, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Reaves will thus miss at least the next three contests, and potentially more, as he continues to recover from a hamstring strain. Reaves hasn't appeared in a contest since Jan. 4, leaving the Lakers shorthanded in the backcourt in the meantime. Max Christie and Troy Brown are candidates to continue picking up the slack in his absence, though the impending return of Lonnie Walker (knee) should also serve to shore up the defensive ranks). Thursday against the Pacers looks like Reaves' next opportunity to retake the floor.
