Even the newest acquired Lakers can’t dodge the Lakers injury voodoo. Kent Bazemore, who was acquired a day before the NBA trade deadline with Marshon Brooks, has been ruled out for the remainder of the season with a torn tendon in his right foot.
In the official press release, the Lakers say an MRI on Bazemore revealed the injury, and a timetable will be formed following surgery on the foot.
Bazemore turned into quite the prospect following the deal that brought in to the Lakers. Given his first consistent playing time of his career, Bazemore has impressed, averaging 13.1 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 3.1 assists in 28 minutes a night. The Lakers can extend a qualifying offer to Bazemore of just over $1 million, and considering the level of his play, that could be a great deal for them.
