Lakers Injury Updates: Kyle Kuzma Will Not Play Against Clippers, Alex Caruso Listed As Day-To-Day With Bone Contusion In Pelvis

Following a successful 2019 NBA preseason, the Los Angeles Lakers are preparing for their 2019-20 NBA season opener against the Los Angeles Clippers on Oct. 22.

While LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and the supporting cast showed what they can eventually become, Los Angeles did deal with injuries before and during the preseason.

As it currently stands, all of the attention is on Kyle Kuzma and Alex Caruso. As Kuzma is working his way back from a stress reaction in his left foot, Caruso exited the team’s final preseason game against the Golden State Warriors.

After additional testing, Caruso is listed as day-to-day with a bone contusion in his pelvis now, according to Lakers:
