  • Lakers' Talen Horton-Tucker: Won't return Sunday

    Horton-Tucker won't return to Sunday's game against the Nuggets due to a left ankle sprain, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Horton-Tucker started Sunday's matchup and totaled 10 points (3-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), a rebound, three assists and a block in 13 minutes prior to sustaining his ankle injury early in the second quarter.

  • Lakers' Talen Horton-Tucker: Explodes for career-high 40 points

    Horton-Tucker closed with 40 points (15-28 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 8-9 FT), three rebounds, three assists and four steals across 37 minutes during Thursday's 128-112 loss to the Warriors.

    The Lakers were without LeBron James (ankle), Anthony Davis (foot) and Russell Westbrook (shoulder) on Thursday, giving Horton-Tucker the chance to move into the starting lineup and feature as the team's offensive centerpiece. The 21-year-old ran with the opportunity, taking the most shots and scoring the most points of his brief NBA career. The Lakers have been eliminated from postseason contention, so it wouldn't be surprising if they sat their stars for the remainder of the campaign and gave role players like Horton-Tucker a chance to shine.

    Horton-Tucker exited Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves after reaggravating an ankle injury and will not return, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.
