Drafted with the No. 17 pick by the Lakers in this year's NBA draft, there was optimism that Jalen Hood-Schifino could be the guard of the future for the purple and gold, though not right away, of course.

Then Hood-Schifino went down with a knee injury during the preseason and has been out ever since. Postgame, Hood-Schifino discussed what he learned while sitting on the bench to start his rookie campaign.
