Lakers Trying To Weather Storm Without LeBron James

Lakers Trying To Weather Storm Without LeBron James

LeBron James #23 of the Los Angeles Lakers is congratulated by his teammate Brandon Ingram #14 and Josh Hart #3 after scoring a basket and getting fouled against Sacramento Kings during the first half at Staples Center on October 4, 2018 in Los Angeles, California.

They have two more games at home before embarking on their longest road trip of the season, playing six games in an 11-day span.

"He got hit somewhere in the game, something happened during the game", Walton said. "I think it's going to be a big thing as the season progresses and we use it more". You don't want anyone to get hurt. It's gonna be a challenge, but our guys should be excited for that.

If he is able to quickly flip the switch and James manages to return in a timely fashion, Los Angeles will pose a serious threat to be the last team standing in the Western Conference.

Luke Walton may have a fallback nearby in the event that he is shown the door by the Los Angeles Lakers.

Georgia transfer QB Justin Fields headed to Ohio State, reports say
The Kennesaw, Georgia-native deepens Ohio State at quarterback and sets up an intriguing competition with Tate Martell . Fields entered into the NCAA Transfer Portal late last month, clearing the first hurdle towards his exit from Georgia.

No time to waste. Prior to the injury he is now dealing with, the absence back in the 2014-15 season was the last time he missed consecutive games.

The Lakers entered the game with three straight losses, including a 22-point Sunday defeat at Minnesota, but Carlisle predicted that L.A.'s younger players would be motivated to prove they could win without James. See you then, MFFLs! We've got to make it a dire situation. "It's been frustrating, no doubt about it". The Dallas Mavericks are averaging 110.2 points on 45.3 percent shooting and allowing 109.7 points on 46.1 percent shooting. The Lakers have failed to cover in their last three as well.

Dallas' defense has also been a problem too. "We've got to get to a point where it becomes a habit and not something that's only a convenience". Dallas is 18-21 on the season, 15-3 at home, 24-15 against the spread and 20-19 with the over.

That's according to Cris Carter, who believes Kuzma is proving enough this season that the Lakers should do all they can to keep him out of any trade talks.
