Lakers face Warriors without 3 injured starters
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Julius Randle and Nick Young have been ruled out of the Lakers’ game against the Golden State Warriors on due to injury.
Los Angeles is facing the powerhouse Warriors without three starters Friday night. D’Angelo Russell also is out for at least another week.
Randle has a hip pointer that also kept him out of Wednesday’s blowout loss to the Warriors in Oakland.
Young will miss his first game of the season with a sprained toe on his left foot. He was hurt Tuesday against Oklahoma City, but still hit the game-winning 3-pointer.
Russell has missed three of Los Angeles’ last four games. He had a platelet-rich plasma injection in his sore left knee earlier this week.
Russell, Randle and Young are three of the Lakers’ top five scorers.
