The Los Angeles Lakers are not expected to have guard Dennis Schroder available for the season opener Tuesday against the Golden State Warriors.

Schroder missed the preseason finale at Sacramento on Friday because of a thumb injury on his right hand and is being evaluated for a ligament issue.


Schroder, 29, played nine minutes off the bench in Wednesday’s 118-113 preseason loss to Minnesota, missing all four of his field-goal attempts.


He averaged 13.5 points, 4.6 assists and 3.3 rebounds in 64 games (29 starts) last season with the Boston Celtics and Houston Rockets.

Schroder signed a one-year, $2.6 million deal to return to Los Angeles in September. He averaged 15.4 points, 5.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds in 61 starts with the Lakers in 2020-21.
