Kuzma not ready to practice with Lakers due to foot injury
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma will be sidelined at least until mid-October with a stress reaction in his left foot.
The Lakers announced the extent of Kuzma’s injury Thursday before the start of training camp.
Kuzma was injured while training with the U.S. national team in August. He still hasn’t been cleared for practice or game participation, and the Lakers won’t learn more until he undergoes an MRI exam after they return from a preseason trip to China around Oct. 13.
Kuzma is the sole remaining member of the Lakers’ young core, most of which was traded for Anthony Davis in July.
The Lakers will hold their annual media day Friday ahead of their first formal practice under new coach Frank Vogel.
