Lakers announce injury to Wenyen Gabriel


There’s a drop in the Lakers!

The team announced Tuesday that center Wenyen Gabriel is out of the game later against the Cavs with a left shoulder sprain suffered in the game against the Wizards last Sunday. The player will be evaluated again in a week.

Gabriel will end up missing the last four games of the team’s current trip, with the possibility of making his return next Tuesday against the Celtics in Los Angeles.

Gabriel’s absence will be felt. The player has entered well and has also shown good chemistry with Russell Westbrook.

Without Gabriel, who should gain more minutes on the court is Thomas Bryant and probably Damian Jones.

Anthony Davis Insane Stats From Last Lakers Games

Anthony Davis is playing fine ball, friends.

In this Sunday’s victory against the Wizards by 130-119, Davis was again dominant and scored 55 points and was very close to beating his personal best of 59.

Davis was extremely efficient, making 22 of his 30 shots, making all nine of his free throws, and also going 2-of-3 from the 3-point range.

That was the first time Anthony Davis had scored 40 points in two straight games since 2018. It was also the first time since 2013 that a Lakers player had scored 40+ points in straight games. The last one to accomplish this feat was Kobe Bryant.

And to illustrate how fantastic Davis has been, insider Marc Stein made a list of incredible stats that the player has achieved during that two-game period and the numbers are impressive. Let’s take a look.


That’s the number of players, including Davis himself, who have managed to score 55 points and 17 rebounds in NBA history. The list includes names such as: Wilt Chamberlain, Elgin Baylor, George Mikan, Bob Pettit, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Michael Jordan, Shaquille O’Neal and Karl Anthony Towns.


It’s been more than 32 years since another player has scored 50+ points and grabbed 15 rebounds or more and still had three blocked shots and 70% of his shots.


The number of Lakers players (Davis and Shaq) who have scored at least 40 points and grabbed a minimum of 10 rebounds in two straight games. Considering the quality of centers that have already passed through the franchise, this data is really impressive.


It’s the number of Lakers players who have scored at least 40 points, in addition to grabbing 10 rebounds and making three blocks in two consecutive games since these stats began to be tallied. The list, of course, only features Anthony Davis.


The number of Lakers players, including Davis, who have scored 50 points twice. These are: George Mikan, Elgin Baylor, Jerry West, Wilt Chamberlain, Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.
