One of the biggest struggles the Los Angeles Lakers have been going through this season has been the number of players being in and out due to injuries. Coach Darvin Ham hasn't been able to have his roster fully healthy.

Now that we are passed the midway point of the season, it seems four players will continue to be out as the Lakers have revealed that they aren't going to recover any time soon, at least not before the All-Star break.

The Lakers say that Max Christie, Jarred Vanderbilt, Gabe Vincent, and Cam Reddish will all be re-evaluated after the All-Star break. The good news is that GM Rob Pelinka acted fast in the buyout market and has signed a new point guard, Spencer Dinwiddie.

Ham now will have a new guard available with Dinwiddie that Christie is out joining Gabe Vincent who has missed most of the campaign. The Lakers could see the debut of Spencer as soon as in the game vs. the Detroit Pistons.

Spencer Dinwiddie spoke about the difference between the Lakers and the Dallas

Spencer Dinwiddie explains why he picked the Lakers over the Mavs: “Let’s say you’re a kid and you get your ass whupped by the bully. Dallas would have been like your mama, like, ‘It’s OK, baby.’ … Lakers are like your dad: ‘Nah, you better go out there and fight ‘til you win.’”
