While some might lament another Lakers preseason loss — this time to the Jazz — or rejoice in what has been the revelation that Kyle Kuzma is legit, the status of that pesky Lonzo Ball ankle injury has been lurking in the background. The prized rookie point guard missed his third consecutive preseason game Tuesday […]
While the result of the Lakers 2nd preseason game was a loss, the bigger news wasn’t the final score, but instead the health status of several players. At today’s media availability, Luke Walton provided everyone with Lakers injury updates not only from the game itself, but of players who’d been sitting out of practices recently.
Lakers Media Day was Tuesday and there were lots of good feelings being spread around with optimism abound (especially related to Brandon Ingram). But not all the news was great as we learned that Brook Lopez and Josh Hart will be limited to start camp, which opens on Wednesday.
The walking wounded Lakers may have reinforcements coming. Both D’Angelo Russell (at least 2 weeks) and Nick Young (2-4 weeks) are in the window of time in which they may be ready to return and it looks like it will happen for both sooner than later: Luke Walton says D'Angelo Russell practiced today and there […]
The Lakers are the proverbial walking wounded right now. Nick Young is out with a strained calf. Jose Calderon is out with a strained hamstring. In Monday’s loss to the Jazz, Tarik Black sprained his ankle and did not return to the game. Larry Nance, Jr. sat out the game vs. the Jazz with a […]
The Lakers cannot catch a break on the injury front. After leaving the Grizzlies game with a hamstring injury on Saturday, an MRI has confirmed a strain in the muscle per a team release.

After Nick Young left Tuesday’s loss to the Pelicans with what was originally being called a strained achilles tendon, we have been waiting on this MRI results to get the official word. Those results are now in and, per the Lakers, Young has a strained calf muscle in his right leg and is out 2-4 weeks. […]
We already knew D’Angelo Russell, after missing Tuesday’s game against the Thunder, was ruled out for today’s game against the Warriors. It turns out, however, that he will be out longer than just those two games. According to the team, he received a PRP injection into his left knee and will be out a minimum […]
Wait. What’s this? Injury news that is not as bad as originally expected? I…I don’t know what to do with this information. I’ll let the Lakers’ share the good news since I am totally out of sorts: An MRI showed a sprained right wrist for @Larrydn22, but no fracture or ligament damage. Listed as day […]
This was a tale of two-halves game. The Lakers controlled the first half, defending well, pushing the pace for easy baskets, and taking care of the ball. The went into the break with a double digit lead and it looked like their formula for winning was going right as planned. In the 2nd half, though, […]
