The Los Angeles Lakers keep losing players to injuries as not only LeBron James will sit out for tonight's game against the Golden State Warriors but Christian Wood will also be out, and not only is missing tonight's game but will be out for quite some time.

Just when the team needs to keep winning to make it to the playoffs, ESPN's Dave McMenamin has reported Wood is out for approximately two weeks with swelling in his left knee, the Lakers announced.

The purple and gold could be truly shorthanded with six massive absences as Christian Wood is also out for the game against the Warriors. LeBron James and Wood are joining Jarred Vanderbilt, and Gabe Vincent as players who won't be playing later tonight.

Max Christie and Cam Reddish could also miss the game, but at the moment have been upgraded to questionable, so hopefully, they could recover and help the shorthanded team.

LeBron James spoke about injuries affecting the team

"Obviously, with our Laker team, it's been about health all year. Trying to do what's best for me for the betterment of the team." It was a significant endorsement by James for his team, which has won six of its past seven. It was only a couple of weeks ago when he was posting a cryptic hourglass emoji to social media in the middle of the night and saying he didn't know what he would do with his player option for the 2024-25 season -- which will be his 22nd in the league.
