Jarred Vanderbilt eyeing Game 3 return

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Per Dave McMenamin, forward Jarred Vanderbilt is eyeing a return to the court as early as Game 3 against the Denver Nuggets.

Vanderbilt has been out since February 1st with a right foot injury. 

The 25-year-old forward is their best point-of-attack defender and is a good rebounder. His return will give the Lakers a tremendous boost, as he is another player to match up against Jamal Murray.

In 29 games this season, Vanderbilt averaged 5/5/1 with 1.2 steals per game. 

Vanderbilt will make an immediate impact when he returns, and it could be as soon as Game 3.
