Are you looking for an extra adrenaline shot? Well, you will have to wait a bit. The Los Angeles Lakers are playing vs Brooklyn Nets. The bad news? Both teams will be without their superstars.
LeBron James is out due to a high ankle sprain. Big man Anthony Davis is dealing with a calf strain and Achilles tendonosis. As if this wasn’t enough, the Lakers have listed three other players as questionable for the game. Can you make any guesses?
According to Ryan Ward, Jared Dudley is also out due to a right MCL tear. When it comes to those with questionable status for the game, we’d add Alex Caruso, Marc Gasol and Kyle Kuzma. Caruso is dealing with left knee soreness and the Spanish native treats his left hamstring soreness. Kuzma has left calf strain and he may not suit up for the game.
Fans are still excited about Lakers vs Nets game
The Nets will play their game without James Harden. The former Houston Rockets veteran is dealing with a strained hamstring. Saturday’s game will be sort of mild. LeBron is out, AD is out, Harden is out. Gasol, Kuzma and Caruso may sit out the game, too.
You may be super excited about the game but we will probably have a smooth game.
The Lakers suffered a terrible loss to the Miami Heat. Players struggled with ball security and it was bad. LA defeated the Heat in the NBA Finals last season. Jimmy Butler and his guys couldn’t even come any near to LeBron James’ team.
The Los Angeles Lakers fell to fifth place in the Western Conference. Players need to win more games to finish the regular season with a high seed. They entered the 2020-21 NBA season as the best team in the NBA. AD was down due to an injury and he hasn’t played since February. The Lakers ruled LeBron out indefinitely. He left the game on March 30 and has yet to return. The four-time NBA champion took his walking boot out a few days ago.
