Members of the Lakers are expected to receive Covid-19 vaccine this week, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

It is still unclear whether the Lakers that will receive the vaccine will be players or staffers.

“Members of the Los Angeles Lakers organization are expected to receive a vaccine for COVID-19 this week, sources told ESPN.

It was not clear which players or staffers were planning to receive the vaccine as HIPAA regulations preclude anyone from the team commenting on the situation,” Wojnarowski reports, via Lakers Daily.

The Lakers would join the Portland Trail Blazers, New Orleans Pelicans, Miami Heat and Atlanta Hawks as an organization that has acknowledged that some members are receiving the vaccine.
