Lakers Podcast: Will Nick Young and the rest of the Lakers’ injuries ruin the great start?

New, comments

Things aren’t so sunny in Los Angeles right now.

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Utah Jazz Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers suffered one of their worst losses of the season on the road against the New Orleans Pelicans. Nick Young went down with what was tentatively being called an Achilles strain just minutes into the night, leaving the Lakers without both members of their starting backcourt for the forseeable future. Will injuries end any hopes the Lakers had of a postseason berth?

Hosts Harrison Faigen and Anthony Irwin discussed that on the show, and also brought on Anthony’s wife, Dr. Jennifer Irwin, DPT to discuss Young’s injury, how long he might be sidelined, and what recovery for and Achilles strain could look like on the latest episode of Locked on Lakers.
