The bad news is piling up on the Lakers. Following the injury casualties of Trevor Ariza and Talen Horton-Tucker, the Angelenos have added Wayne Ellington to the disabled list. As revealed by the MRI that has been performed, the guard suffers a grade 1 strain in the hamstrings, which calls into question his availability for the start of the season, according to Kyle Goon, a journalist for The Orange County Register.
Ellington came to the Angelina squad in this offseason with the aim of improving the exterior shot of Vogel’s. The guard comes from a season in which he has thrown 6 triples per game with a 42.2% accuracy, and reaches a team in which profiles like his are very necessary, which could make him a sensitive loss if he finally gets lost. some games. The first of them will take place on October 19 against the Warriors, so he still has a few days ahead of him to put his physical difficulties behind him.
Those who are also doubtful for that date are Malik Monk and Kendrik Nunn, although in the case of these the Lakers do have enough hopes that they will reach the opening day, according to Vogel in his statements. However, everything will depend on how their respective situations evolve over the five days remaining for a new NBA season to begin.
