Big bad news for the Lakers, a hecatomb to come?

As the franchise is moving forward, and escaping major injuries for a few days, the Lakers could once again have to go through a tough time. A serious blow has indeed fallen within the workforce, and could affect many players!

The period of appeasement did not last very long. On a two-game winning streak, the Lakers approached their mini road trip with relative confidence and calm spirits. However, a grain of salt slipped into the Angelino machine on Tuesday, and was reported by Dave McMenamin in the afternoon.

The Lakers canceled their training today before their flight to Dallas because of the Covid protocol, according to the team.

Covid epidemic coming to the Lakers?

The insider ofESPN It didn’t take long to pinpoint the cause of the canceled workout, and immediately disclosed it on Twitter.

A player has tested positive for Covid-19, sources told ESPN. Members of the team were asked to undergo two tests – a rapid and a PCR – before meeting up to catch the flight to Dallas later this afternoon, if they tested negative.

Like the Warriors in recent hours, Frank Vogel’s men could therefore experience great difficulty in getting to Dallas.

Indeed, it is not impossible that the player in question has infected some of his teammates in recent days. It seems all the more likely that it is Talen Horton-Tucker, who took part in the last 15 games of the franchise!

The player is Talen Horton-Tucker, the Lakers have announced.

24 hours before their meeting against the Mavericks, the Lakers therefore find themselves under the threat of the spread of Covid-19 within the roster. A new deal that the franchise would certainly have gone well!
