While training camp started 10 days ago and the regular season begins in less than two weeks, Dennis Schroder still hasn’t set foot in Los Angeles. The Lakers’ latest recruit isn’t on leave or injured, and it’s just a visa issue that’s preventing him from joining his ex/new teammates.
According to ESPN, his situation is about to be settled since his flight is scheduled for this weekend, and after a superb Euro with Germany, he will be able to move on to the Lakers, a franchise he knows well. One more asset for Darvin Ham who can count on him as a joker off the bench. Provided he finds minutes behind Russell Westbrook, Kendrick Nunn and Pat Beverley.
» He’s doing his best to keep up the pace and to stay fit explained Darvin Ham, when asked about Schroder’s absence. » But that has nothing to do with NBA play and being in an NBA environment. So once he’s here, we can throw him in the deep end and see how he performs. But Dennis is a very high level player, an outstanding competitor and he takes good care of himself. It should therefore not take long to find its rhythm. »
This weekend, the Lakers travel to San Francisco to face the Warriors. Objective: win a first match in this pre-season.
