Alex Caruso is dealing with an illness and will not play in Monday's Summer League tilt.
The Lakers are facing off against the Cavs in the semifinals. Caruso performed admirably last season, especially in the wake of Lonzo Ball's injuries. While the departure of Tyler Ennis looked like his ticket to the main roster, the addition of Rajon Rondo squashed his already-small hopes of meaningful action. Between Ball, Rondo and Josh Hart, the Lakers are pretty set in terms of point guard types. He's good enough to hold onto an NBA job but L.A. just doesn't have the room.
