Kuzma limped off the court during the fourth quarter of the Lakers defeat to the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night and failed to return to the floor.

According to FiveThirthyEight, the Lakers have a 2 percent chance of making the playoffs, while BasketballReference gives Los Angeles a 0.1 percent chance of reaching the postseason. It has not been an easy season for the Lakers, the problems are not only injuries or the low performance of LeBron James, but also the reconstruction of the team has been a focus of criticism. "Unless I'm hurt, I'm not sitting games".

The suggestion that LeBron could compete for the National Basketball Association title for the ninth consecutive season always seemed overly optimistic but there were few who doubted he would be involved in May. "I told Shai [Gilgeous-Alexander], look [around] the room, there's seven people. watch at the end of the year [how many more there will be]". This is the Lakers 3rd-straight loss as their record worsens to 30-34. "I think it's what happens in here and I feel good about where we are".

The Lakers play host to the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night. James and his few healthy teammates never threatened late as the Clippers (37-29) took sole possession of seventh place in the Western Conference standings with their sixth win in eight games. They will be going for their second win in a row and third win in their last four games when they face the Lakers on Monday. At this point, however, the team's best player isn't ready to entertain that option. Danilo Gallinari is averaging 18.8 points and 5.9 rebounds per game, while Montrezl Harrell is averaging 16.2 points and 6.6 rebounds per game. Talk of a playoff push, all the rage as recently as 10 days ago, all but evaporated, with the Lakers dropping to 5.5 games out of the 8th seed with 18 games to play.

The bleak scenario has prompted some to question whether the Lakers would be better served by declaring the season a bust, and preserving James' body for the challenges of the 2019-2020 campaign.
