D’Angelo Russell (knee), Nick Young (calf), Larry Nance Jr. (knee), Julius Randle (hip, though playing), and now Jose Calderon.
More injuries: Jose Calderon has a right hamstring strain and is done for the night

Jose Calderon suffered a right hamstring injury towards the end of the first quarter Saturday night against the Memphis Grizzlies. It seems the injury bug continues to torment the Lakers on this long a grueling schedule.
This four game road trip has now knocked out its third player. It’s likely that Marcelo Huertas will be getting more minutes in place of Calderon. Huertas has not been good at all this year, so there are concerns all around. The good news is that the Lakers won’t play again until Monday, and D’Angelo Russell may be back as early as Wednesday against the Houston Rockets. With all the injuries, having our primary point guard back would be huge.
