When Gabe Vincent was signed by the Los Angeles Lakers in the summer, he was seen as a huge offensive threat, and someone who could space the floor and create terrific shots like he did for the Miami Heat last year.

Unfortunately, he only played in five games for the Lakers before a knee injury and surgery sidelined him.

Vincent has been out since December but Shams Charania says he could be back soon.

“Gabe Vincent finally to the point where he’s progressing to conditioning and ramping up on the floor. His window I’m told to potentially return, begins next week,” Charania said on Monday’s “Run It Back.”

During his five games with LA, Vincent averaged 5.4 points, 1 rebound, and 3 assists.

That was a significant step down from his previous season with the Heat when he scored 9.4 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 2.5 assists.

His numbers in the playoffs last year were even higher, with him scoring 12.7 points and 3.5 assists per game.

That was what the Lakers were hoping for when Vincent came to LA in the summer and if he stayed healthy, it could have been possible.

Now Vincent will have to readjust to playing with the Lakers right before the playoffs get started.

If he can do that and Los Angeles continues to rack up impressive wins, Vincent could once again be part of a strong playoff run.

Charania also noted that Jarred Vanderbilt is getting healthier too and he could be back in the near future.

That means the Lakers could be getting back two players who could be hugely consequential in the weeks ahead.

The Lakers are peaking at the right time, but will they also have important players come back at the right time too?
