Lakers fall to 76ers, Harden's double-double not enough

The team's next game after that is a big primetime showdown with the Warriors on Saturday night.

However, the three-time National Basketball Association champion participated in the scrimmage portion of Wednesday's practice and will be evaluated again before Thursday, though he is officially ruled as "out" for now.

Through 14 games played this month, Ingram has averaged 19.1 points on 50.7 percent shooting from the field, 6.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game. As a team, the Lakers shot 47 percent from the field and seven of 23 from the 3-point line, but they were slow out of the gates and were always fighting a losing battle after falling behind by as many as 24 points in the second quarter.

Los Angeles coach Luke Walton did not address the rumors with the team before its loss to the 76ers on Tuesday, according to ESPN.

Yet they are having to contend with a myriad of injury problems and could be short-handed against the Clippers with Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart both listed as questionable due to hip and knee problems.

However, while the Sixers' defense couldn't contain him, the other four starters for the Lakers combined for a meagre 28 points, with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope the only player to finish in double-digit in terms of points scored. "He looked good. He's still really good at basketball, in case you guys were wondering".

This isn't the first use of fake joints we've seen on the hardwood. "My hope is that he continues to get healthy and he's ready to play soon".

After the loss, the Lakers slipped to 26-25 for the season and are ninth in the Western Conference standings, two games behind the Los Angeles Clippers, who now occupy the last playoff berth in the conference.

Shortly after those comments, a Lakers spokesman revealed LeBron would not be available, say ESPN.
