The important update of the Lakers on the new injury in the roster
While the defeats follow one another in the preseason for the Lakers, it is also the case for injuries, Trevor Ariza is forfeited for two months, while Talen Horton-Tucker has just joined him. The staff has just provided details of his upcoming absence.
It’s impossible to judge a team on a preseason, but hard for some fans to hide their disappointment with the Lakers. Anthony Davis played, just like Lebron james and Russell Westbrook, but the results are not forthcoming. 4 matches, 4 defeats for Frank Vogel’s men, the content of which during the matches is quite empty.
The attack must find its bearings, just like the defense. If that’s not surprising, it won’t be too late for the Angelinos as the regular season kicks off in a week now. However, to all this we must add another threatening factor: injuries.
Lakers confirm long-term absence
Trevor Ariza is forfeited two months, the fault of an operation on his ankle. Malik Monk joined him in the infirmary with groin issues, although the full-back is hoping to be there for the opener of the regular season. But what worries the supporters much more, it’s Talen Horton-Tucker’s injury, who tore a ligament during a game. Results ? Surgery.
To give an idea, Chris Paul had missed 5 weeks of competition in 2017 for a similar injury. We were therefore waiting for news, and it has just arrived. Los Angeles confirmed that THT passed the operating table with no problems upon arrival. A tune-up will be carried out in… 4 weeks.

The Lakers have announced that Talen Horton-Tucker has undergone successful surgery on his right thumb and will be re-evaluated in approximately 4 weeks.
About a month away for Talen Horton-Tucker, at best. A blow for the Lakers, who will have to manage this as best as possible. Not easy, especially with all the new players. This recovery promises to be tricky.
