Lakers' Kuzma may miss up to a week

NBA fans are roasting Lonzo Ball's old tweet about the Lakers missing the playoffs

NBA fans are roasting Lonzo Ball's old tweet about the Lakers missing the playoffs

Eighteen games without James did no wonders for a team that needed him, which only seemed to get worse as the trade rumors flooded the headlines and the overall morale hit almost killed whatever hope this team had left.

Beverley relished playing the villain in the win, successfully frustrating Lakers superstar LeBron James despite being approximately 7 inches shorter and almost 100 pounds lighter.

Not only did the Lakers lose a crucial game to the Clippers on Monday, they also lost another player to injury. Back to back losses to bottom placed Phoenix Suns, followed by 113-105 loss to Los Angeles Clippers, the Lakers now have a 30-34 record and sit five 5.5 games behind San Antonio Spurs; the eight-placed team.

Still before last week's loss to the Suns, James was still optimistic about the team's chances.

Listed as questionable for Wednesday's game are Brandon Ingram (shoulder), Tyson Chandler (neck) and Lance Stephenson (toe).

The Los Angeles Lakers' season was all but ended Monday night when the L.A. Clippers took care of them, 113-105.

As for James, he'll most likely need a miraculous postseason berth to make the fans content in Los Angeles. The Lakers have one of the tougher remaining schedules with over half of their remaining games against playoff-bound teams.

The bleak scenario has prompted some to question whether the Lakers would be better served by declaring the season a bust, and preserving James' body for the challenges of the 2019-2020 campaign.

Unfortunately for James and the Lakers, he missed the shot.

The Lakers are highly unlikely to win the lottery, no matter what happens in the remainder of the season.

Monday's loss to the Los Angeles Clippers may have been the final nail in their playoff coffin.

Williamson is the consensus No.1 prospect heading into the draft.

The Lakers would have to finish, say, 13-5 if the Spurs finished 6-11 in order to leapfrog them in the standings.
