On Tuesday night, the Los Angeles Lakers hosted the Washington Wizards in a battle of injury-plagued organizations.
In what should have been a contest between playoff-ready teams, both the Lakers and Wizards have their sights set on the NBA draft rather than the NBA postseason.
Unfortunately, both teams have been struck with devastating injuries. Los Angeles was without LeBron James for 18 games, and other stars like Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma missed significant time.
Meanwhile, the Wizards have been without star point guard John Wall, who suffered a season-ending injury.
It didn’t look like the season could get any worse for LeBron and company – until tonight.
Early in the first quarter, LeBron went to the line for free throws....and then this happened..
Sad...thankfully we will not have to much more of this....The Lakers have 8 games left in the season.
