Trevor Ariza hasn’t made his debut with the Los Angeles Lakers yet, as he is still recovering from an ankle injury he had in offseason.

Ariza had a right ankle surgery seven weeks ago and is still ‘ways away’ from his return. He is expecting to be medically cleared soon in order to join practice again.

The veteran guard said he has no pressure to make his return sooner and is confident he will help the Lakers turn things around when he makes his debut.

“I bring a completely different element to this team. For example, throughout my career, I’ve been a piece that you can plug in (to all kinds of lineup combos),” Trevor Ariza said, via Mike Trudell of Spectrum Sportsnet.

With Ariza and Kendrick Nunn having missed the first 22 games, the Lakers are still struggling. They have an 11-11 record and are eighth in the West.
