Reports have confirmed that Kyle Kuzma is the newest addition to the Lakers’ injury list. The list is currently headlined by their superstar duo of LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

Kuzma reportedly experienced discomfort in his hamstring during shootaround. He then had an MRI done, which unfortunately, confirmed that he had suffered a Grade 1 strain. Hamstring issues can be problematic, and it will not be surprising if Kuzma ends up missing a handful of games because of this injury.
The good news for the Lakers is that new signing Andre Drummond will be available to play on Thursday. The 6-foot-10 big man will need to carry much of the load for the Lakers against the Heat, along with guys like Dennis Schroder and Montrezl Harrell.
