Dennis Schroder

Dennis Schroder is set to return for the final two games of the regular season for the Lakers.

Schroder entered the Health and Safety protocols of the NBA on May 2 and has missed the last seven games of the defending champions.

Schroder took to Instagram on Thursday and posted a photo of himself with the caption “I’m back”. His timeline of 10-14 days means the earliest he could return is against the Indiana Pacers on Saturday.

For their part, the Lakers (40-30) have struggled without Schroder and are fighting to avoid the play-in tournament
