The Lakers increasingly fear that Kyle Kuzma will not be ready for the start of training camp as his left foot continues to heal, according to Marc Stein of the NY Times.
Kuzma suffered a foot injury while with Team USA and missed the FIBA Basketball World Cup but not much information has appeared regarding the nature of his injury. He is reportedly recovering slower than expected and he may be forced to miss the first few practices with the Lakers as training camp starts this Saturday. Kuzma is expected to compete for a starting gig but the injury might hold him back while his usage is likely to take a hit this year with Anthony Davis now in Los Angeles.
