Kuzma will miss the final three games of the season due to a sprained left ankle, a disappointing end to a promising rookie campaign. Kuzma averaged 16.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.4 blocks in just over 31 minutes per game through 77 contests (37 starts) this season, cementing himself as a key cog in the Lakers' young rotation.

Kuzma was held out of Sunday's matchup with the Jazz due to a sprained ankle and there's a chance he extends his stint on the sidelines Tuesday. It's encouraging that Kuzma hasn't been ruled out a day in advance, but considering the Lakers are essentially playing in a meaningless game, it wouldn't be surprising if they remained cautious with their rookie and ultimately kept him out. Josh Hart would likely be in line for another start if Kuzma can't give it a go.

Kuzma sprained his ankle during Friday's matchup with the Timberwolves, limiting the rookie to just 18 minutes overall. With the Lakers well out of playoff contention, they'll be cautious with Kuzma and as a result, he'll sit out Sunday's contest for rest and recovery. With Brandon Ingram (concussion) also still out, the Lakers are going to turn to Josh Hart to enter the starting five. Look for Kuzma to shoot for a return ahead of Tuesday's game against the Rockets.
