Los Angeles Lakers newcomer Wayne Ellington is yet to make his regular season debut after sustaining a hamstring injury during preseason.

According to Lakers head coach Frank Vogel, the 33-year-old shooting guard is getting closer to return to action and will be sent to practice wit the team’s G League affiliate.

“Wayne is going to practice with the G League today,” Vogel said ahead Tuesday’s game against the Rockets. “You have to assign him by the rules or whatever but it’s just to go down to practice here, just to get some live work. Our practice was just light scripts and film. So for him to get some live work he’s going to work with the G League today.”
