The Lakers have signed a rookie guard and waived a veteran forward.

With players returning to health, the Los Angeles Lakers are hoping to add to their roster.

LeBron James is expected to return on Friday, after Talen Horton-Tucker returned this week.

Meanwhile, the team has made a couple of roster changes.

Chaundee Brown, a rookie guard out of Michigan, was signed to a two-way contract by the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday.

Once Doumbouya is healthy, there may be a way for him to return.

That doesn’t include Trevor Ariza and Kendrick Nunn, who have yet to appear in a game this season.

Nunn, who can score and play defense, is exactly what the Lakers need right now.

It will be some time before he returns, according to head coach Frank Vogel.

“He’s still a long way off.”
