Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers finally got a win the other night in Chicago, their first since beating the Pelicans at the end of February. LeBron James scored 36 and looked like he was having fun again, finally able to relax and let it all hang out.
So LA looked loosey-goosey and beat the Bulls but that sh*t ain’t gonna work in Toronto, even with the Raptors struggling a bit lately.
If you haven’t kept up with the Lakers’ injury report this week, you’ve missed a lot. Tyson Chandler and Lance Stephenson have been in and out with bang and bruises; they’re getting old. That’s just the small stuff, though.
Lonzo Ball is done for the year with a balky ankle. Hopefully, he comes back healthy next year after a good offseason but he’s missed close to half of all the games on the Lakers’ schedule in his first two seasons.
Brandon Ingram has a blood clot problem and won’t play again this season. The Lakers just hope he’ll recover to play again, ever. He should, at least based on the history of athletes in the past who suffered from what he’s suffering from but he’s still at risk of something as severe as career-ending.
The Raptors got blown out in Cleveland the last time out. They haven’t overwhelmed us like they did prior to the break but most of the contenders around the league, in general have come out of the second gates slowly, as everyone is building up toward the playoffs.
Toronto is 5–4 in its nine since the break and it won’t be at full strength in this game. For one, Fred VanVleet is still out but he could be back in as little as a week. Kyle Lowry left the Cleveland game with an ankle but he says he’s ok. We’ll see if he plays, though.
Serge Ibaka has been suspended three games for trying to choke and then punch the Cavaliers’ Marquise Chriss on Monday night. He really went after him and will cost himself nearly $500,000. You can look at it as that being a lot of money, which it is; or you can look at it as he’s making that every three games he plays. He probably won’t miss the cash much.
He’ll start serving the suspension immediately and miss this game.
