Severe injuries in the Los Angeles Lakers increased on Wednesday as Kyle Kuzma participated in part of the practice before receiving thigh treatment. Meanwhile, Rajjon Rondo is still unfinished and LeBron James is out of the game for Thursday with Minnesota Timbervilves.
"We hope it's okay," said Lakers head coach Luk Walton for Kuzma. I have not seen or talked to the trainers. He went there to heal early in practice. I'll get an update for it when I'm done here. "
The Lakers cleaned up Rondo last weekend for full contact in practice, followed by the veteran guards who played in numerous training sessions. Walton said after Monday's loss to Golden State Warriors that he is optimistic Rondo will play against Timberwolves.
"I feel like I'm going to play the last few weeks," Rondo said after a training session. "But we still take it every day, so we'll see how I feel in the morning when I wake up."
One small obstacle for Rondo tends to protect against contact from right finger / hand. "I did not have many contacts," he explained. ̵
As for James, his work was again limited to contactlessness." He's gone out and done some workouts, "said Walton." With him and Rondo we will see how they feel [Thursday] in the morning and thence take it. See how it goes the next day afterwards and the next day. Every time they are physically ready to play, they will play. " Reminder: Bright places is the official ticket seller of LakersNation.com .
