The Lakers will trot out a skeleton crew for Monday’s Summer League game against the Sacramento Kings, as Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart have all been ruled out due to injuries.
Ball (sore right groin) and Kuzma (cramps) are coming off big performances in Friday’s loss to Boston, having dropped a triple-double and 31 points, respectively.
Hart (sprained right ankle) had already been ruled out along with Brandon Ingram (right leg cramping), who will not play again at Summer League.
All three injured rookies — Ball, Kuzma and Hart — are expected to be fine and were able to work out at the team hotel earlier in the day.
Meanwhile, the Lakers’ fourth draft pick, Thomas Bryant, is listed as probable with left knee soreness.
