Alex Caruso (foot) out for Lakers Wednesday

Los Angeles Lakers guard Alex Caruso is listed as out for the team's game against the Houston Rockets.

What It Means:

Caruso was listed as questionable originally, but on the latest NBA injury report, his status has been changed to out. The Lakers are severely shorthanded on the second night of a back-to-back set, but that may not matter much against the Rockets. Ben McLemore could potentially step into a starting role.

In 57 games this season, Caruso has averaged 6.3 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 16.8 FanDuel points.
