The timeline of Schroder’s return is unknown. His comeback will be determined after getting tested for severity. The Lakers signed Dennis Schroder as a backup point guard for Russell Westbrook. Russ has been struggling to perform at his best since signing with the Lakers last season. Schroder will likely be a great option off the bench for the Lakers.

Dennis Schroder was talking to LeBron James and the Lakers for months before joining

LeBron James was excited to have Schroder back with the Lakers. He posted: “So damn happy to have you back” for Schroder on his Instagram. The German star, who won a bronze at the recently concluded EuroBasket, admitted recently that he was talking to LeBron and the Lakers for a long time. However, he wanted to take his time to reach a decision.

“I’ve been talking to him. I can’t wait to go back, I want to go for something this time,” Schroder said.

“I’ve been talking to the Lakers for the last three months. I knew I was going back, but I wanted to take my time,” Schroder added.

Schroder’s last stint with the Lakers was cut short as they traded for Russell Westbrook, moving on from him. He averaged 15.4 points, 3.5 rebounds, 5.8 assists, and 1.1 steals for the Lakers in the 2020-21 and will look to have a stronger impact this time around.
