Caruso has been diagnosed with a concussion, the Lakers said. He will remain in it until he can pass a series of motor and cognitive tests to the satisfaction of team doctors and a league neurologist.

The Lakers are also without Anthony Davis (out another two weeks with a calf strain) and Marc Gasol (health and safety protocols).
