Lakers News: LeBron James-Free Lakers fall to Utah Jazz – All Lakers

Their shorthanded Los Angeles Lakers lost their third straight match to the Utah Jazz, 139-116, at Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City. LA was the team’s best player without three of its starters, most notably LeBron James, but even with all three players available, the Lakers lost by double digits at home to Utah last Friday. Jazz is younger, deeper, faster and more skillful.

We knew LeBron James (sore left foot) and Patrick Beverley (not ill with COVID-19) would miss the game, as would some role players, but LA fans were unprepared to find out the team’s fourth-best scorer , starting gunner Lonnie Walker IV was also sidelined due to a non-COVID-19 illness of his own. Keep in mind that LeBron James was also bedridden for several days last week with a non-COVID-19 illness. That non-COVID-19 is sure to get around.
