Lakers News And Rumors Recap: Lakers Eliminated From Playoffs
With the regular season down to only 16 games for the Los Angeles Lakers, they are looking to wrap up a dreadful, injury-bugged season.
The Lakers, who currently stand in 14th place in the Western Conference with a 22-44 record, were officially the first team to be eliminated from playoff contention after Friday night’s loss against the San Antonio Spurs.
The franchise will look to move forward by starting this off-season with the 2014 NBA Draft. The Lakers will be guaranteed at least a top-10 pick. The Lakers are rarely in this position, but the last time they had a lottery pick, Los Angeles drafted Andrew Bynum.
