The Los Angeles Lakers have been shorthanded for most of the season due to multiple players being on and off with injuries. Gabe Vincent and Jarred Vanderbilt have been two of the most affected missing a large number of games.

Christian Wood will still be out for tonight's contest against the LA Clippers but their rival could also be set to have some notable absences on their own with Paul George out and two players as doubtful.

Norman Powell and Ivica Zubac are listed as doubtful and will probably be on-game decisions, in case both players miss the contest, both teams will have some notable absences.

The Lakers will be playing, probably, for the last time as an away team in their own arena as the Clippers will be moving to another arena for the next NBA season.

Darvin Ham is still optimistic about Vincent and Vand's potential soon return

But Ham is not concerned about reintegrating Vincent and Vanderbilt into the mix when they are healthy enough to play given how the team has been preparing all season. "It’s very realistic,” Ham said. “I just think if you get a healthy body back, other guys have had a lot of miles put on themselves this season due to our injury circumstances. So you work them back in slowly, you do different things, and you have stay-ready groups to try to get them up to speed on where you are currently. And just let the chips fall where they may."
