It’s Thursday and we actually don’t have too much going on injury-wise today! Hooray! Here’s a rundown of what we’re looking at with six teams in back-to-back sets.
Los Angeles Lakers at Miami Heat
Injuries: Andre Drummond (P, toe), Kyle Kuzma (P, calf), Tyler Herro (P, foot), Gabe Vincent (P, knee)
The Lakers are expected to get Drummond back and he’ll be getting the start. You can expect pretty close to a 24/24 split with him and Montrezl Harrell, but Harrell hasn’t exactly played great lately. Maybe Drummond can get closer to 30. Kyle Kuzma now has “significant tightness” in his calf and he’s questionable, so he might be sitting. Plus, we found out that Talen Horton-Tucker is suspended, so Ben McLemore will be getting minutes now. Plus, there will be more run for Alex Caruso to run the second unit. If Kuz is out, there would be more minutes for Ben McLemore, Wesley Matthews, Kentavious Caldwelll-Pope and Caruso.
Tyler Herro‘s foot issue is new, but Miami throws their P tag around a lot. Expect him to be a full go.
