Lakers' Brook Lopez (ankle) listed as questionable to play Wednesday against Thunder

Lakers' Brook Lopez (ankle) listed as questionable to play Wednesday against Thunder”

After missing the Lakers last five games with a left shoulder injury, he was reevaluated Tuesday and the team's medical staff believes he's made enough progress to be cleared for full practices moving forward.

While both Lopez and Ball have been cleared to practice, the Lakers are not practicing on Tuesday, which is customary following a back-to-back.

The Lakers (11-25) lost all five games without Ball by an average of 13.2 points. Ball has missed five consecutive games with a sprained left shoulder since December 23. They have missed their rookie point guard's ability to push and spread the ball around on offense, and his length and rebounding on defense.

Both Ball and Lopez are now questionable for the game against Oklahoma City on the 3rd, and they can not be back quicker.

Ultimately, Lakers coach Luke Walton will make the final call on Wednesday, and the coach has a habit of not sharing player status until the final possible moment. Ball and Lopez are both questionable for the Lakers' next game against Oklahoma City. The veteran big man is averaging 12.8 points and 4.3 rebounds per game in his first season with Los Angeles.
