Lakers vs. Suns Game Preview: Cloudy skies in LA as Suns visit

The cloudy skies have killed the Lakers’ positive vibes. The Los Angeles Lakers are in the midst of their longest losing streak, which just so happens to coincide with their worst stretch of injuries of the season. The Phoenix Suns are hurting even worse in the win-loss column, which might have something to do with T.J. Warren missing extended time. Nick Young and D’Angelo Russell have begun practicing with the Lakers but are not returning Friday night. Tarik Black and Jose Calderon will also miss the game, leaving the Lakers very shorthanded once again. Things didn’t go well in...

Utah Jazz 107 - Los Angeles Lakers 101 Game Recap

Utah Jazz 107 - Los Angeles Lakers 101 Game Recap

No Tacos for home fans The Utah Jazz (13-9) defeated the Los Angeles Lakers (10-13) by the close margin of 107-101. This game wasn’t ALWAYS this close, in fact after a 26-26 first quarter up until the middle of the fourth it was All That Jazz. The good guys won the second quarter by +4 and the third by +11. But LA clamped down on defense in the fourth, and their 27-18 final frame made what was looking like another road blowout win for Utah fade away. Both teams were missing key players — the Lakers were without D’Angelo Russell, Nick Young, Larry Nance Jr., and Jose Calderon (from the...
Nick Young has ascended to the Kingdom of Swag

Nick Young has ascended to the Kingdom of Swag

Shut it down. Nick Young, aka Swaggy P — a nickname he said God gave to him as the Prophet of Swag — aka Uncle P has taken the crown for good. As he casually bit into a crispy red apple on the sidelines Monday night, chest out with 2 Chainz hanging around his neck, he ascended to a level all his own. The Kingdom is now his and his alone: There were signs early on in the day that it would be a special night for Nicholas Aaron Young. Shahan Ahmed of NBC Los Angeles captured Swaggy P earlier in the day as he strolled into the locker room wearing what can only be described as designer...
The Lakers aren’t losing sight of positive developments, even amid losses

The Lakers aren’t losing sight of positive developments, even amid losses

Los Angeles is focused on the right things as they move forward in their rebuild. The Los Angeles Lakers went 1-3 on a ridiculous four games in five nights road trip. Lakers head coach Luke Walton didn’t think the schedule made any sense, and the team’s record showed why, especially when they dropped the final two games due to a combination of travel, fatigue, and injuries building up. The team had every reason to quit. By the end of the trip, they were missing D’Angelo Russell, Larry Nance, Jr., Nick Young, and Jose Calderon. Julius Randle was dealing with an ailing hip, and the...

Lakers News: D’Angelo Russell meeting with team doctors Monday for knee update

Expect a full status update on Russell’s sore knee on Monday. The Los Angeles Lakers are trying to push through injuries to two of their starters, with D’Angelo Russell’s return from undergoing platelet rich plasma treatment looking closer than Nick Young’s. Russell is scheduled to meet with team doctor’s on Monday, close to the two-week minimum the team announced he would be out following the procedure, according to Mike Bresnahan of Spectrum SportsNet. The PRP treatment was done on Nov. 23, meaning the full two weeks would put Russell’s return on Dec. 7, when the Lakers travel...

Lakers Injury News: Nick Young out 2-4 weeks with right calf strain

What was initially announced as an Achilles injury was actually something else for Young. The Los Angeles Lakers will be without Nick Young for two-to-four weeks while he recovers from a strain in his right calf, the Lakers announced Wednesday. Young underwent an MRI in Chicago, and what was first announced as a right Achilles tendon strain upon initial examination turned out to be calf injury. A calf strain sounds better than an Achilles injury, though anything sidelining a player for up to a month is a serious problem. The Lakers will have to find a way to make up for the prolific...
