Lakers Injury Report: Vague Timeline Revealed For Jarred Vanderbilt Return

According to Jovan Buha, a Lakers insider from The Athletic, Vanderbilt is going to be back this season; it’s just a matter of when exactly.

Jarred Vanderbilt injury update: Lakers forward out at least 3-4 weeks  after hurting foot vs. Celtics -

“I’ve heard Vando is progressing upward,”

“It sounds like he’s going to be back this season; it’s just a matter of like timing. Is it two weeks from now, is it four weeks from now? There is a big difference in terms of when he returns.”

—Jovan Buha

Vanderbilt has missed the last month of the season due to a foot injury. He suffered the injury on February 1st during the Lakers’ Grammy road trip against the Boston Celtics.

The 24-year-old may be nonexistent on offense, but his defense makes up for it. He’s by far the second-best and most impactful defender outside of superstar Anthony Davis. He is averaging 5.2 points in the season on 51.8% shooting from the file, 4.8 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.2 assists.

Vanderbilt missed the start of the regular season due to left heel soreness. Injuries have been a pain for the Lakers and their defensive-minded forward. Nonetheless, this is excellent news for all parties involved. We can’t wait to have the Vandolorian back on the court. Let’s hope it’s sooner rather than later.
