With four games remaining in the season, the Lakers look to end on a high note despite the injuries that continue to plague them.
The amount of injuries have derailed the team all season long, and the Lakers were shorthanded once again as they suffered their 53rd loss last night against the Houston Rockets. With last night’s defeat, it gave the Lakers their most losses in franchise history since moving to Los Angeles.
While Kent Bazemore and Xavier Henry are out for the rest of the season, it appears Pau Gasol will be out as well as he is still dealing with vertigo. The Lakers continue their final home stand of the season as they host the Grizzlies on Friday.
