Kuzma not ready to practice with Lakers due to foot injury

Share

Unfortunately, the most recent Lakers rumors are not overly positive.

With Kuzma missing the entire 2019 FIBA World Cup, Team USA sputtered to a disappointing seventh-place finish. However, that ankle injury may be worse than originally thought.

Well, that would have been encouraging if it was only soreness he was working through.

"Kuzma is progressing with his rehabilitation from an injury (stress reaction, left foot) that occurred while he was with USA Basketball". Kuzma is expected to travel with the team for those games but he has not been cleared for full practice or game participation.

TMZ have reported that she and Justin will be travelling to SC this weekend to get hitched in a more traditional ceremony. It was announced earlier this week that the Biebers have enlisted Canadian singer Daniel Caesar as their wedding singer.

That is all we know about the extent of the injury for now. A status update will be announced at that time.

The Lakers' last preseason game in China is on October 12, so that means Kuzma should get his MRI within the following couple of days.

So with one of the Lakers' top scorers out for an unspecific amount of time, how does this affect the Sacramento Kings and their chances of making the playoffs this regular season? With the season opener scheduled for October 22, there is a chance that he will miss some of those games as well as he will have only 10 days to get ready. The Lakers said he could be out during the first three weeks of training camp. Kyle Kuzma will undergo an MRI after the Lakers' trip to China.

The team confirmed that the injury took place when Kuzma was playing with Team USA. "Excited to get healthy and back to L.A. and get ready for the real show get ready!"
