LeBron Upset After Kuzma Injury, 3-Time Champion Booed By Lakers Fans

Croats in NBA Zubac Faces Lakers For First Time as Clipper Welcomed by Fans

Kuzma suffered the injury in Monday's 113-105 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, apparently rolling his right ankle in the fourth quarter.

It's a deficit that can be made up but would likely take some incredible heroics from James due to all the injuries the Lakers are dealing with.

Ivica Zubac returned to the fans of Los Angeles Lakers for the first time after his trade to city rival Los Angeles Clippers, reports Gol.hr on March 5, 2019. Rivers dismissed the notion of tanking before the game: "I don't know that word", he said.

James scored 27 points and Rajon Rondo had his 32nd career triple-double, but the Lakers took their ninth loss in 12 games since they beat the Clippers on January 31. This season, when the Lakers have received 50% or more of bets, they have gone 16-29-1 (35.6%) ATS. They would need to win somewhere close to 15 of those games, and hope that the Los Angeles Clippers or San Antonio Spurs absolutely fall apart in the last few weeks of the regular season. That conversation hasn't occurred, but I'm sure it can happen soon. The team is 5.5 games back of the eighth spot in the West and with just 18 games left, things aren't looking too good.

However, Kuzma has already been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Denver Nuggets.

Many believe that the fate of the Los Angeles Lakers entering into the NBA Playoffs is a grim one, making it the six-consecutive season on the team missing out.

While James suggested the likes of president Magic Johnson have a tough pitch on their hands if they want to shut him down for the rest of the year, the three-time National Basketball Association champion was more open to the idea of managing his minutes if the playoffs become mathematically out of reach. Kelly Oubre Jr. finished the game with 27 points, 13 rebounds, and three blocks.

It is now time for the team to shut down the significant players for the rest of the year (LeBron James, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma and Lonzo Ball). Waiting for a miracle with LeBron and young players is something really risky, especially if you expect this team to have an instant adaptation with the King.
