Things aren’t so sunny in Los Angeles right now. The Los Angeles Lakers suffered one of their worst halves of the season on the road against the New Orleans Pelicans. Nick Young went down with what was tentatively being called an Achilles strain just minutes into the night, leaving the Lakers without both members of their starting backcourt for the forseeable future. Will injuries end any hopes the Lakers had of a postseason berth? Hosts Harrison Faigen and Anthony Irwin discussed that on the show, and also brought on Anthony’s wife, Dr. Jennifer Irwin, DPT to discuss Young’s injury...

Lakers Injury Update: Julius Randle likely to return during upcoming road trip

The purple-and-gold are likely to get some reinforcements on the road. The Los Angeles Lakers have been hit hard with the injury bug over the last week, with D’Angelo Russell (knee), Nick Young (toe), and Julius Randle (hip) all missing time with injuries. Russell is expected to be out for at least two weeks, while Young returned to the starting lineup in the Lakers’ 109-94 win over the Atlanta Hawks. There is currently no reported timetable for Randle to return, but Lakers head coach Luke Walton is optimistic his starting power forward will be back sooner rather than later. “I think...

Lakers vs. Hawks Final Score: Phenomenal team effort ends with 109-94 Lakers victory

It started ugly but turned into a beautiful victory over the Hawks. The Los Angeles Lakers found life again with the Golden State Warriors out of town, drubbing the Atlanta Hawks in a 109-94 victory. Nick Young’s return was huge for the offense, Tarik Black made a massive impact on defense, and the collective group effort was too high a wave for the Hawks to overcome. Larry Nance, Jr. had a very good game off the bench, notching a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds. His activity on defense and fighting for rebounds made a big difference in turning around what was an ugly first...

Luke Walton says the Lakers miss Nick Young and Julius Randle’s energy

Los Angeles looked lethargic, and their head coach thinks he knows why. After the Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Golden State Warriors for the second time in three days, Luke Walton could only describe the game one way. "It looked like a Thanksgiving food hangover,” Walton said of the game, and it sounded like he might have a theory on why. "Nick and Julius bring more energy to the team than anyone else that we have,” Walton said of two of the team’s missing starters after Nick Young and Julius Randle both sat out of the team’s 109-85 loss, and it’s pretty easy to see what he...

Lakers vs. Warriors Final Score: Warriors pick leftover Lakers apart in 109-85 loss

The Warriors picked through whatever was left in the Lakers’ boneyard. The Los Angeles Lakers made it back-to-back losses to the Golden State Warriors in a 109-85 thrashing. The Lakers were without Nick Young on top of Julius Randle and D’Angelo Russell, making for an uphill battle from the start. Jordan Clarkson got his first starting nod of the season, taking the green light and scoring a team-high 20 points. Brandon Ingram remained in the starting lineup and showed some nice defensive flashes, especially in the first quarter. Ingram swatted Draymond Green to create a nice fastbreak...

Warriors eager to evaluate Damian Jones’ D-League stint

“We haven’t even seen Jones play basketball yet,” head coach Steve Kerr said before Friday night’s game against the Lakers at Staples Center. Jones, 21, tore his right pectoral muscle while weight lifting 12 days before going 30th overall to the Warriors in June’s NBA draft. During non-contact work the past month, he impressed coaches with his defensive awareness and developing midrange game. At 7-foot, 245 pounds with a 7-2 wingspan, he has prototypical size and strength to patrol the paint in the NBA. Forward Julius Randle (hip pointer) and guard Nick Young (sprained toe,...

Lakers vs. Warriors Game Preview: The leftovers

Do we have to? The Los Angeles Lakers were cooked like Thanksgiving turkeys on Wednesday and the Golden State Warriors are back for the leftovers. Without D’Angelo Russell and Julius Randle the purple and gold were left black and blue, and with no D’Angelo and Randle and Nick Young both listed as doubtful, the Warriors might just drop more than the 149 they hung on Los Angeles last time out. Truth be told, if Randle and Young are hurting, it might be best to sit them out of this one. The Lakers got a dash of reality Wednesday night, receiving a crystal-clear reminder that the top of...
