Avery Bradley has a hairline fracture in his leg and will be out of the Lakers lineup for a little while. I wrote about the injury, how much Bradley will be missed, and the rotation decisions that will come out of this: https://t.co/0cFJ1ZAB8h
I would also offer Dudley at the 3 as a possibility. He’s a periphery part of the rotation, so moving him into the starting lineup in a spot role maintains as much continuity as possible. AK
Definitely curious to see who slides into Bradley’s spot in the Lakers lineup. Caruso and KCP are the only guys who can begin to make up for what they’re losing defensively at the point of attack. I’d go Caruso, but we also know Vogel, LeBron and AD value Rondo.
I didn’t know George was on the show.

This. And he’s earned PT over KCP by dint of his play. Most seamless replacement for AB to lose as little as possible defensively and get someone capable off ball.
Starting Caruso makes the most sense not just because he’s a better player than Rondo but also because it allows Rondo to play more with the second unit — a group that actually needs his creative chops.
Really enjoyed this one. @AaronLarsuel has some great stories and is worth a follow for all Lakers fans.
This is related to the injury that initially occured in San Antonio on Nov. 3 that kept Bradley out of the Nov. 5 game at Chicago. X-Rays were negative at that time, but his leg bothered him, so the Lakers did an MRI last night and it revealed the hairline fracture.
RT @LoJoMedia: Per Lakers MR: Avery Bradley Medical Update - an MRI last night revealed a hairline fracture in a non-weight bearing bone of Avery Bradley’s right leg (on the fibular head). Bradley will be re-evaluated in 1 to 2 weeks, and further medical updates will be provided at that time.
