Unless Andre needs to do things first I can see this tune changing but for now this is what Vogel is saying.

Frank Vogel says he’s not sure if Andre Drummond will be available for Wednesday’s game against Milwaukee.

He has not played in a month and a half. I rather you let him practice, stretch, and then join the team towards that weekend. Giannis ain’t who you want to see to start and neither is chasing Brook at the 3point line.

Frank is probably thinking long term confidence and big picture there because LA media is reactionary and so is the fan base who will call for his head if he doesn’t protect the paint vs Greek Freak even though he hasn’t played in so long and he’s not played with anyone on this team besides KCP before

Drummond probably would have had 25pts/20rebs tonight with like 10 offensive rebounds.

Closer then I would of liked but a win.

Did like how they played hard for most of the game, especially on defense.

Did not like all the bad shots though. Late in the clock or the 40 3pt attempts.
They have to be smarter.

Curious, any word on Matthews ankle sprain? He was walking toward the lockerroom so hopefully not serious.

Also, any mention of why James was not there?

They were keeping 3+ guys in the paint at all times. You have to shoot 3's to keep the 4th out of the paint and to have any chance of finding a driving lane against a bigger front line.

LBJ was at home. I’m extrapolating a bit but he tweeted out about the Alabama 3PT right at the start of tip off which leads me to believe he was in his living room with the 6 different TV’s. (Pays to be the king)

Mathews said he tweaked but he should be good. Can’t see him missing any time beyond the MIL game on Wed.

We’ve played 9 games in 13 days. So I look forward to the time off for the squad until MIL. I also look forward to the fact that most teams will not have a good look at us at full strength until it’s too late for them.

Really like what I saw from Kieff tonight.
Playing more patient and was solid defensively.

If there’s any silver lining to our Big Guns being out due to injuries is that Kieff is getting his groove back. Looking like his Phoenix Suns days.

P.S lmao on Kieff cussing in the postgame interview with Truddell

What scrubs do you speak of?

This isn’t the magic from early in the year. Even Frank said it in the presser, they had no tape or idea what lineups they would face. The magic gave up Vucevic, Gordon, Fournier, and Ross didn’t dress ... they are a blank slate

These are basically the Bobcats and every Laker fan who older knows what that mean

I was too hyped for this game, like somehow the Andre news bleed over for the game for me. They won 2 in a row, I'll take it.

That Bacon guy, he was at the bottom of FG% before the lakers game and he shot the lights out against them? Are you not watching? The commentators even mention it.
