Dennis Schroder and Thomas Bryant have joined the Los Angeles Lakers’ Wednesday practice. Per SB Nation’s Jacob Rude, this marks the second-straight day that the two practiced and the first full practice that they’ve taken in for the Lakers.

As such, their participation may have given the L.A. fans a sense of encouragement. In the report provided by ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, Anthony Davis noted that the two looked “unbelievable” in their acts.

Both Schroder and Bryant have undergone their respective surgeries in their thumb and will play for their second stint donning the Purple and Gold.

As noted by Shams Charania, they are expected to play and make their season debut on Friday, as the Lakers host the Detroit Pistons.
