load management, check :lol:
LeBron James aggravates groin injury in loss, could miss time
Dave McMenamin
ESPN Staff Writer

ESPN wrote:
LOS ANGELES -- A collision with Patrick Beverley in the first quarter of the Lakers' 111-106 loss Wednesday night to the Clippers caused LeBron James to aggravate a nagging groin injury and could cause the Lakers star to miss some game time moving forward.

"I felt healthy going into the game," James said after finishing with 23 points on 9-for-24 shooting, with 10 assists and 9 rebounds. "I got kneed in the groin taking a charge from Pat Bev, and it kind of set me right back to where I was five days ago."

Last Christmas, James suffered a torn left groin against the Golden State Warriors -- the first major injury of his career -- and it derailed both his and his team's season.

The injury that James is currently dealing with is on the right side of his groin and is far less dire than the injury he suffered to the left side of his groin last season, but it could worsen with overuse.

James told ESPN the contact with Beverley caused the groin area to "flare up." James' play clearly suffered from there. Ten of his 15 misses were on 3-pointers -- the most 3s he has ever missed in a game in his 17-year career -- and he attempted just four foul shots, as his drives to the lane were limited.

James was coming off both the groin discomfort and a thoracic muscle strain -- a pull in the rib cage area -- which caused him to miss a game for the first time season. The Lakers lost that game 128-104 at home to the Denver Nuggets on Sunday.

Even though the Lakers are now riding a season-worst, four-game losing streak, several members of the organization already have approached James about the urgency to sit out and rehab his groin injury until he feels fully recovered, sources told ESPN.

The Lakers have a back-to-back set coming up -- at the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday, followed by the Dallas Mavericks at home on Sunday. James, who has repeatedly rejected the notion of load management already this season, is listed as day-to-day by the team.

"To be honest, I haven't even thought about Portland just yet," said James, who will turn 35 next week. "I'm always around the clock with my body, getting my treatment. If I'm feeling great, I'll be in the lineup. If I'm feeling well, I'll be in the lineup.

"We'll see what happens."

The Lakers are anticipating needing James for six more months of basketball should they make a deep postseason run, and their priority is the big picture.

"It's still another game," forward Kyle Kuzma said after the Christmas loss. "We're in December. We got a couple more months of basketball."

Not that the Lakers were completely comfortable with the defeat, of course.

After leading by 12 points at the half and by as many as 15 in the third quarter, there was a sense that they had blown a golden opportunity to even up the season series with their Staples Center cohabitants 1-1.

"We gave that one away," Anthony Davis said after putting up 24 points, 6 rebounds and 2 blocks. "We had the game, we were in control of the entire game; even though we let them get back in it, we were still leading by, I think, seven with six minutes to go. That's a game you've got to close out, so like I said, we gave that one away."

Indeed, James' 22-foot step-back jumper with 6 minutes, 39 seconds remaining in the game put the Lakers up by seven, and the Clippers responded with a 13-2 run in the following four minutes to take control.

"We just beat ourselves, plain and simple," Kuzma said. "Obviously, credit to Clippers for making shots down the stretch. But we just beat ourselves."

The Lakers had possession with 19.2 seconds left, trailing by 3 with a chance to tie it, but James lost the ball out of bounds after Beverley poked at the ball during James' shooting motion with 3.6 seconds on the clock.

The ball was called out on Beverley. But after an officials review, the call was overturned, as the referees determined that the ball was last touched by James. The play was registered as a missed shot by James, rather than a turnover.

"I was surprised by the overturn," James said. "I didn't feel like the ball went off my hand. But that's the way it went."

While James preached about the Lakers' need for the team to "just be better" as the season progresses, there was still confidence coming from another corner of their locker room.

"We're still the best team," center Dwight Howard said. "After tonight, let it go. It's just another game. Of course, we all wanted it. I think everybody in L.A. that's a Lakers fan wanted to see us win tonight. But like I told you guys a couple days ago, we want to be the best team in June. We want to be the team that's holding up the trophy, and I think when we do that, nobody will remember the game that we lost on Christmas."

Kyle Kuzma is showing the Lakers the best, healthiest version of himself
It took longer than he would have liked, but Kyle Kuzma is settling into his role as the Lakers’ third scorer.

By Christian Rivas on December 29, 2019 1:16 pm


Kyle Kuzma has been limited to just 23 games for the Los Angeles Lakers this season due to a few nagging injuries, one of which kept him sidelined for the entire preseason and the first four games of the regular season.

When Kuzma first returned from injury in November, his play was hot and cold, which isn’t uncharacteristic for the streaky third-year forward. But when Kuzma was bad during that stretch, he was really, really bad. It wasn’t just that he wasn’t making his shots at an efficient clip, he was also forcing passes that weren’t there, missing his defensive rotations and getting called for traveling — like, a lot.

Kuzma has missed five games since then because of an ankle injury he suffered earlier this month, and upon his second return, he’s looked much sharper. In the three games he’s played since making his return, Kuzma has averaged 21.7 points per game on 49% shooting from the field, including 36.4% from 3-point range. He’s also posted the second-highest offensive rating on the team (121.1) during that time behind Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (123.1) and ahead of LeBron James (118.1).

The sample size is small, but Kuzma’s starting to resemble the player Lakers fans hoped he’d be alongside James and Anthony Davis, and no one is more relieved about it than Kuzma himself.


Following the Lakers’ win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday — a game in which Kuzma scored 20 points in the first half — he told Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet that he’s starting to feel like himself again:

“I worked my *** off this summer. It was a little bit frustrating and disappointing to have an injury like I had with [Team] USA, but this is what I expect from myself every game.”

But as great as Kuzma looked on Saturday, Frank Vogel believes there’s at least one other player that had a hand in Kuzma’s big night: LeBron James.

“Kuz has just given us a huge lift these last two games off the bench and sort of elevates that group, but I think ‘Bron gets some credit for how the bench played as well because he’s in there with the second unit and he was really attacking the paint, and making great reads. With 16 assists and one turnover, that’s just a really, really impressive performance by him and it helped those guys get going.”


James only assisted three of Kuzma’s baskets against the Trail Blazers, but last season James passed to Kuzma more than anyone on the team. While that’s changed this season with Davis in the fold, Kuzma isn’t worried about James forgetting about him on offense:


“Me and LeBron got great synergy. He’s always looking for me and you know I like to score... He’s a pass-first guy and he trusts me, so I just try to make the most of them and make them count when he passes to me.”
Judging by James’ praise of Kuzma after the game, Kuzma has every reason to be confident:

“We want him to be that third scorer for us. Someone that we can consistently get that 18-20 points a night. But more importantly, it’s the efficiency right now that I love. He’s just been very efficient, he’s been mixing it up with his threes, with his paint touches ... on the break as well. He’s just mixing it up.”

There are still some lingering concerns about where Kuzma fits alongside James and Davis on nights where one or both of JaVale McGee and Dwight Howard are playing well, but his ability to create shots for himself and make free throws will probably give him the edge over the two aforementioned centers on most nights, and it sounds like Vogel agrees.

Frank Vogel says Lakers ‘best lineup’ features LeBron James, Kyle Kuzma and Anthony Davis
One thing’s for certain: The Lakers would be wise to wait and see what they have in Kuzma before making any hasty, win-now moves at the trade deadline. Kuzma may not be the perfect player, but considering his cheap contract, they’d be hard-pressed to find equal or greater value without giving up meaningful assets.

As long as Kuzma’s here and healthy, he’s going to contribute in a way that makes the Lakers better. For now, that should be enough reason to keep him around.
