Wesley Matthews will likely be in the playoff rotation of the Lakers, according to head coach Frank Vogel.

As Vogel told reporters, Matthews is ‘making a real case’ to be in Lakers rotation for the postseason games.

“Wes has certainly played his ass off,” Vogel added regarding Matthews’ performance n the last two games of the defending champions.

The veteran guard has had many ups and downs this season and is averaging 4.8 points and 1.6 rebounds in 55 games for the Lakers.
