Kyle Kuzma has spent some time out of the NBA due to injury, The Lakers decided to pick up his team option.
“There’s still progression to be had,” said Vogel. “He was very limited with what he did today, and it was all non-contact in limited duration. It’s going to take some time for him to get his legs under him and build up to the point where he’s playing live with contact, and then some time where we want to see him perform in that and respond well to that before we clear him to play.”
He will be out for the remainder of the NBA pre-season and has not been capable of participate in any of the games.
A couple of months back Kyle Kuzma injured his ankle. This injury appears to be lingering enough to keep him inactive.
