Alex Caruso was forced to exit the game against the Indiana Pacers with a head injury and was not able to return.

Caruso was diagnosed with a head contusion, however he has not entered the concussion protocols of the NBA yet.

“Alex [Caruso] was obviously not able to return. He is not in concussion protocol but is still being evaluated for a concussion but is not in protocol currently,” Lakers head coach Frank Vogel said, via Lakers Nation.

Caruso could miss time due to his injury, with the Lakers facing the Golden State Warriors on Monday.
