(Los Angeles, CA) — Lakers rookie forward and former Utah Ute Kyle Kuzma [[ KOOZ-muh ]] is dealing with back spasms. Kuzma sat out for the Lakers’ loss to the Warriors on Wednesday and didn’t practice Thursday. The 22-year-old underwent an MRI and the results came back negative. Though teammate Lonzo Ball has been the Lakers’ most-hyped rookie, Kuzma has been the more consistent player. Over 20 games, Kuzma is second among rookies with 16.7 points per game, trailing only Philadelphia’s Ben Simmons.
