After passing through the first seven or so weeks of the 2020-21 season unscathed, the 'unavailable' list for the Los Angeles Lakers, over the past month, refuses to reduce.

They've been suiting up without Anthony Davis since Valentine's Day, Dennis Schroder missed nearly 10 days in late February, and now the latest announcements.

And now he's expected to miss the Lakers' next two games as well, as per the Athletic's Jovan Buha.

The Lakers' next two games are on consecutive nights, first in San Francisco against the Golden State Warriors and then back home in Los Angeles against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

In 35 games this season, the 2019 NBA Champion has averaged 4.8 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 2.0 assists in 20.1 minutes per game.

Alex Caruso

Late on Saturday (ET), the Lakers announced that guard Alex Caruso had been added to the NBA's 'Concussion protocols'.
