Los Angeles Lakers head coach Frank Vogel provided injury updates on two important guards. The team is getting ready for the upcoming game against the Denver Nuggets. Having two injured players on the roster is not the best scenario, and the Lakers may have to find a solution to this problem.
According to the head coach, guards Alex Caruso and Danny Green may show up for Thursday’s match against Denver. Los Angeles plans to return to the floor with an excellent game. They had a disappointing performance in Tuesday’s loss to Denver. This was the first time LA had lost since the Western Conference semifinals against James Harden and the Houston Rockets.
Frank Vogel has other worries regarding the injury updates
Caruso and Green didn’t have too many shots in Game 3. They went a combined 2-for-11 in the game and combined for six points.
Lakers players need to stay healthy for Thursday’s game. Let’s not forget that LeBron James got a nasty elbow in his chin. Healthy players won’t have any trouble taking a 3-1 lead in the series. The Lakers are two wins away from the first NBA Finals appearance in a decade.
Denver is not a joke. Nikola Jokic played aggressively against Anthony Davis and the Lakers. The Nuggets had changed their style and it was more than obvious that they are determined to win.
LeBron and his teammates trailed the Nuggets throughout Game 3 and it was awful. Things got a little better early in the fourth quarter, but Denver had strength maintain a healthy lead until the end. Lakers fans hope to see better performance on Thursday. LA needs more shots. Players should try and hit more 3-pointers, too.
This is an important series for both teams as they are trying to advance to the finals. LeBron goes after his fourth title. Davis has yet to win a championship. Lakers players have enough playoff experience to win a title. The Nuggets don’t have a similar experience, but they play really well this season. They need to win this game, and so do LeBron and his teammates.
