Lakers will be without Ivica Zubac tonight who is out with a Quad contusion. Unfortunately, it seemed to happen sometime around shoot around.
It is unknown the severity of the injury but its seems to be minor. He be reassessed at a later date but should be ready to go by the next game. In the meantime, it would appear that Tarik Black will maintain his starting position, though some, including myself, would like to see Zubac start some games. This also means it is likely Timofey Mozgov will be back in the rotation after a few “DNP”. Mozgov and his $16 million Dollar contract have been relegated to end of the bench duties mostly to give playing time to the younger bigs on the roster like Zubac. It is unknown if this will be good or bad for the tankers who just scored a victory today with the Phoenix Suns last second buzzer beater over the Boston Celtics. Lakers are now 1.5 games with the 2nd to last record in the NBA with the Suns win.
