When he’s not assaulting IHOP waitresses or riding the bench for the Los Angeles Lakers Derrick Caracter is rehabbing his surgically repaired knee. As part of that on-going process the Lakers shipped Caracter off to the L.A. D-Fenders so he can see some actual PT in the D-League.
Having been out since the fourth day of training camp Caracter will see his first meaningful action of the season. Of course even if he were healthy chances are the second year pro would have seen little action behind the vets in front of him.
Caracter’s rookie season provided few memorable moments on the court. There was one contest in which he took it to DeMarcus Cousins a few times but otherwise his first NBA season will be remembered more for his infamous incident in a New Orleans IHOP.
