The Lakers have no time to waste building a team that has 11 new pieces. However, the casualty party does not share this idea. During the preseason, the injuries were falling like flies. Trevor Ariza and Talen Horton-Tucker have had to go through sheet metal and paint to fix their ankle and foot problems respectively. Later, Wayne Ellington began to suffer from muscle discomfort in his leg that still has him far from the slopes. And now Frank Vogel has announced Kendrick Nunn will be out for at least two more weeks.
The former Miami Heat suffers an inflammation in the knee derived from a bone contusion. Nunn has already missed much of the preseason with a sprained ankle and will not play again until he is reviewed in two to three weeks. That is the minimum estimated time for the return of the escort, although it is not ruled out that it may be delayed even more. Right now, the Lakers only have Malik Monk, Kent Bazemore and Avery Bradley on the outside wings for their game tonight against the Phoenix Suns.
