Lakers' F Kuzma listed as questionable due to bruised lower back


Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma is listed as questionable to play Friday night against the New York Knicks due to a bruised lower back. The diagnosis came from an MRI performed Thursday. Kuzma was injured Wednesday night during the Lakers' 107-100 home loss against the Oklahoma City Thunder. He played 16 minutes before exiting at halftime, and he did not return.

"He got hit somewhere in the game, something happened during the game," Lakers coach Luke Walton told reporters after the game. "You could notice he was starting to limp in those last couple minutes he was playing. He said he was fine. They worked on it at halftime; just said, 'No go.'" Kuzma scored four points in the defeat to the Thunder, adding three steals. He is averaging 18.3 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.4 assists on the season and is the team's second-leading scorer. The Lakers were already without LeBron James, Rajon Rondo and Michael Beasley. The team is 1-3 without James, who strained his groin last week.
