Los Angeles Lakers player Austin Reaves will be out for the next two weeks due to a strained left hamstring, according to the organization itself.
Reaves had been ruled out of Wednesday’s game against the Miami Heat for what Frank Vogel called a “minor injury.” However, it seems that the problem is more relevant than initially believed.
The guardThe 23-year-old had signed a dual contract with the Lakers this summer after not being drafted. He quickly impressed the coaching staff to the point of being promoted to a standard two-year contract within the roster.
In his first ten NBA games as a professional, Reaves has averaged 6.1 points and 2.0 rebounds in 21.3 minutes. The rookie had taken advantage of other injuries like those of Trevor Ariza, Talen Horton-Tucker and Kendrick Nunn to enjoy more time on the track.
