The Los Angeles Lakers have been hit with an unexpected injury.

“The Lakers’ Rui Hachimura (forward, 203 cm, 104 kg) is out for the foreseeable future, according to 온라인카지노 The Athletic’s Jovan Boo.

Hachimura was confirmed to have a fractured nose. This is his latest injury. He was injured in a home game against the Dallas Mavericks on Nov. 23. He underwent surgery and will be examined again in about a week. Depending on the results, a specific timetable for his return will be determined.

Hachimura’s injury is frustrating in more ways than one. The team’s one-two punch has been on fire lately, but it’s the people who are supposed to be with them that are groaning under the strain. Jared Vanderbilt (heel), Gabe Vincent (knee), and Cameron Reddish (abductor) are on the injury list. Add to that Hachimura. That’s a lot of key pieces missing.

On top of that, LeBron James and Anthony Davis are both listed as day-to-day, albeit administratively, so we’re not at full strength. In many ways, the loss of Hachimura, who is expected to lead the offense off the bench, is particularly painful. He started 12 games this season before his injury. In 23.3 minutes per game, he is averaging 11.8 points (.505 .429 .786), 3.8 rebounds, and one assist.

It’s still early in the season, but he’s boasting a high offensive success rate. He’s shooting over 50% from the field and over 40% from three-point range. This makes him very efficient in terms of attempts. His stats translate to 18.2 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 1.4 steals per game when averaging 36 minutes. That makes him a standout.

At this rate, it’s unlikely they’ll make it out of their next four-game road trip. The Lakers will play four games in six days starting on Nov. 26. They’ll face the Cleveland Cavaliers, Philadelphia 76ers, Detroit Pistons, and Oklahoma City Thunder during that stretch. With the exception of Detroit, these are all powerhouses with good records. They could make an appearance against Oklahoma City as early as tonight, but we’ll have to wait and see.

Meanwhile, the Lakers are 9-7 so far this season and sit in eighth place in the Western Conference. They were on a roll last season, reaching the Western Conference Finals, but have yet to find their stride this season. After picking up just three wins in their first eight games of the season, they have since reeled off six wins, including two three-game winning streaks, to climb up the standings.
