FIL-AM guard Jordan Clarkson is expected to return to the Los Angeles Lakers lineup after sitting out the past two games with a sprained ankle
In a report by Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times, Lakers coach Byron Scott said Clarkson will be back in active duty against the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday (Wednesday, Manila time).
The 6-5 combo guard started his second season on an impressive note and currently has 15.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists an outing. He is the Lakers' second highest scorer and is shooting at a 47-percent clip and 41% from beyond the arc.
With Clarkson’s return, rookie D’Angelo Russell is expected to be relegated to the bench despite playing well in the last four games.
