Alex Caruso could return to the lineup of the Los Angeles Lakers in the home game against the Charlotte Hornets on Thursday night.

Caruso has missed the last two games of the defending champions, due to a mild concussion he suffered against the Indiana Pacers on Friday.

Lakers head coach Frank Vogel told reporters Caruso is ‘on track’ to play against the Hornets.

Even without Caruso, the Lakers have won their last two games, extending their winning streak to three games (27-13).
