Scouting report
Arguably the biggest difference is how much more he has the ball in his hands. Westbrook’s usage rate – the percentage of Lakers possessions he ends with a shot, foul or turnover while on the floor – soared from 21.5 percent as a starter to 26.9 percent in his bench role. (That further illustrates one of the core challenges with Westbrook on this roster: He’s far more effective with the ball in his hands than without it, but there’s a limitation to how much he can have the ball when LeBron James and Anthony Davis are deservedly ahead of him in the pecking order.) Westbrook is a player who thrives off of rhythm and flow. When he’s able to dictate pace and possessions, it’s easier for him to find a groove, which he’s done more frequently recently. The Lakers are unleashing him in fast-paced bench-centric lineups alongside Davis, Austin Reaves, Troy Brown Jr., Lonnie Walker IV, Juan Toscano-Anderson, Matt Ryan and/or Wenyen Gabriel.
Los Angeles Lakers player Wenyen Gabriel may have been born in Southern Sudan but he was raised for many of his formative years in Manchester. “It was the place my family found refuge,” said Gabriel of the Queen City. “You know, I’m a former refugee, and after going through the process, coming through Cairo, Egypt, and then New York, this is where we were placed, and this city welcomed my family with open arms. All the opportunity here has been a blessing to me and the city embraced me and helped provide me the opportunity to get to where I am now, so I’m super grateful for that.”
A few of Fox’s peers also attended the wedding including Sacramento Kings general manager Monte McNair and Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum. Former Kentucky Wildcats Bam Adebayo and Wenyen Gabriel, who was also Fox’s teammate in Sacramento, attended the wedding. Adebayo and Gabriel were two of the groomsmen at the ceremony.

Kendrick Nunn yet to play 5-on-5

Kendrick Nunn recently spoke with Spectrum SportsNet about his health and said he feels 100 percent. He has been training with the younger Lakers – Reaves, Johnson, Wenyen Gabriel, Talen Horton-Tucker, and Mason Jones – during their Monday through Thursday offseason workouts. He hasn’t resumed five-on-five play yet, which is the next big hurdle. It seems like he should be ready to go by the start of training camp, but recovery isn’t always linear.
