Kyle Kuzma’s injury condition is getting better. The Los Angeles Lakers has even allowed him to exercise. However, still without contact. Head Coach Frank Vogel confirmed that.
Kuzma suffered a left foot injury during a trial match with the United States national team in August 2019. As a result of the injury, he was forced to leave the training camp. Kuzma failed to defend the United States in the 2019 World Cup.
When he returned to his team, Kuzma did not recover immediately. He needs a few moments to recover. The Lakers continue to monitor him to be fit for the 2019-2020 season.
Kuzma also did not appear in the NBA preseason match. Vogel let it pull over. They don’t know yet when Kuzma will return. However, its development has looked good lately.
In 2018-2019, Kuzma was a vital player in the Lakers squad. He appeared in 70 regular matches with an average of 18.7 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists. The overall percentage of shots (FG%) reaches 45.6 percent. Overall shot effectiveness (eFG%) 51.5 percent. While true shooting percentage (TS%) is 54.6 percent.
The Lakers themselves seemed very appreciative of Kuzma. They dare to exchange other young players to get Anthony Davis. However, keeping Kuzma in Los Angeles. They inevitably want to lose it.
For the past two seasons, Kuzma was indeed useful for the Lakers. Next season, he has a chance to prove it again. At present, the Hollywood team has four main players such as LeBron James, JaVale McGee, Danny Green and Anthony Davis. Kuzma could have completed them. With a note, he must recover completely from his injury. (put)
