According to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters, Bazemore felt fine after the game but will undergo more tests to make sure:

Since joining the Lakers in mid-February, Bazemore gave the Lakers another scoring option in the backcourt. Prior to going down in Sunday’s game, Bazemore was averaging 13.6 points a game. Bazemore’s scoring ability was highlighed while playing in the summer league. However he was stuck in the Golden State depth chart and rarely received any playing time.

With the Lakers suffering through injuries, Bazemore was given the chance to shine with the Lakers. As the Lakers continued to lose bodies, Bazemore handled backup point guard duties. Despite the frustrating season, Bazemore’s play and growth remains one of the bright spots for the Lakers this year.

Provided that his contract expires at the end of the season, Bazemore wants to play in the final five games. Although he will be a free agent, Bazemore expressed his interest to return to the Lakers long-term. Many Lakers voiced similar sentiments with Xavier Henry and Jordan Farmar recently wanting the same. The Lakers will be entering an important off-season. It should be interesting to see which Lakers the front office plans to retain.

    And so the injuries continue to pile up…
    I think it’s all the complaining that Lakers fans are doing
    I see a trend here: As the increasing rage of ignorant fans gets more heated, the more injuries are dealt to the team.

    • Stephen A Surls

      So you must be suicidal.

    STFU DUMBASS

    • roseducanna

      DUCKASS.

  • AD

    Boy ain’t been a Laker but 2 months or so and already injured. Someone had to have put a curse on the Lakers, they need to figure out a way to reverse it. Burn some sage-do something!

    • Tina Moran

      IMO, I think it’s the way D’Antoni runs the floor. His style of play somehow causes lots of injury. I have to do some research into the Suns. situation when he was head coach to see if this was the trend, too.

      • Josh

        The Suns were one of the healthiest teams in the league. Their trainers have been lauded for years for reviving or prolonging the careers of guys like Grant Hill and Shaq. It has nothing to do with D’Antoni. It has to do with guys rushing back from injuries to try to play because there aren’t enough healthy bodies to go around. Kobe is starting to make me mad because he says he could have played over a month ago, but he sits and forces other guys to play themselves into exhaustion and more injuries.

        • Wize tha Laker

          Kobe shouldn’t come back… Tanking the rest for a high pick. its smart. Kobe will be involved in the free agent and rookie scouting so I hope he can come out and help get some good help

        • AD

          Not true. So you’d rather Kobe come back for a lost season to sacrifice his broken down body for these terrible players on 1 year deals? No thanks.

          • Josh

            If he says he’s able to play, I want to see him play with these guys so the front office can determine who should be back next year. It’s great to see them put up numbers they’ve never had before, but how will they play next to Kobe? I’m not asking for 36 minutes a game, but I wouldn’t mind seeing him out there 2-3 games a week for 20-24 minutes.

            It’s frustrating seeing 40-year-old not-even-a-Laker Steve Nash work so hard to get on the floor to help this team, while Kobe sits at home and tells the media he could play if he wanted to.

      • AD

        I think that’s part of it the reason but his other teams didn’t have THIS MANY injuries pile up.

    • Jim213

      Time to get rid of the trainers along with the coach. Awkward that this many injuries have occurred for the past two seasons but best to rid themselves of the negativity that shadows the brand today (CLEAN HOUSE). But to be honest IMO not that many players care about playing for the brand given their less than consistent performance.

      Many are just happy to be earning a paycheck and once the game is over it’s back to good old times tho some on the roster keep working on their craft. We can see who gives more effort than others in their play on the floor. Hopefully FO has payed attention to this and brings back a few who try to place their best foot forward as opposed to just being another night at the office.

      • AD

        Gary Vitti has been the trainer for 30 years doubt they get rid of him and he basically said it’s D’Antoni’s fault with the fast paced offense.

        • Jim213

          Nothing against Vitti but it may be time to focus more on the future for long term purposes.

  • truth24

    Recap: EVERYONE SUCKS ON THE LAKERS!!!!!!!!!!!

  • fdasf

    aghh. i mean the FO should understand that these are not just bad luck right. ITS THE SYSTEM!!!

  • roseducanna

    Lame duck coach MDA is a killer of the players.

  • Wize tha Laker

    Next 2 years look better but I hope we make the right moves. We should get a young monster this year, a better head coach for next year (which shoulda been phil), and make smart offseason moves (loul deng or something of the sort. not position but caliber. above average help) Doing these things will draw us a kevin love or better the year after. Lets do things smart.

  • Wize tha Laker

    and clips im not hating. you guys are good and I would never take that from anyone. But its gonna take some jewelry to take LA from the Lakers and not just 1. If you guys win 5 before we can win another 1 ill accept a legit argument but get real, LA is a Laker Nation
