The LA Lakers continue to be affected by injuries, as the young sophomore Max Christie will be out for tonight's game after getting injured last night in the first half of the game against the Denver Nuggets which ended with a loss for the purple and gold.

D'Angelo Russell wasn't able to play that game after having knee soreness and having undergone treatment. Russell has been key for the Lakers' aspirations as a serious contender for the NBA title and one of the best players during this season.

After missing this Thursday's contest vs. Denver, coach Darvin Ham said that D'Lo, who's listed as probable for the second leg of back-to-back games, should be good to go tonight after missing last night's game with knee soreness.

While Jarred Vanderbilt and Gabe Vincent continue to be out without a return date. The team has announced that "Cam Reddish has been cleared by team doctors to begin an on-court progression and ramp-up, with hopes of returning to gameplay following the NBA All-Star break."

The Lakers have 3 more games before the NBA's All-Star break

The Lakers have 3 more games before the break, including tonight (NOP), then Tuesday the 13th (DET), and Wednesday the 14th (UTA). The first game after the break is Thursday, Feb. 22 (GSW).
