L.A. plays at Sacramento on Friday, then the Clippers in L.A. on Sunday before embarking on a five-game East Coast road trip
“I didn’t really think anything of it,” Drummond said. “I came back in the second quarter and it was hurting a little bit more. And then after halftime I finally took my sock off to look and my whole toenail was gone. It was all bad from there. I couldn’t walk or run, so I just told coach to take me out.” Frank Vogel obliged, and Drummond limped to the locker room shortly after. X-rays were negative. The Lakers said Drummond will be re-evaluated Thursday and is considered day-to-day. Their next game is Friday on the road against the Sacramento Kings.
Mark Medina: Andre Drummond “very happy to see” that x-rays came out negative. He said he’ll keep icing to heal the right big toe. Drummond on level of pain: “I’ve lost a toe nail before, but this one was very painful.” He said he can’t put his shoe on. Wearing flip flops
Drummond said Bucks center Brook Lopez stepped on his foot in the first quarter, causing the injury. “I didn’t really think anything of it,” Drummond said. “I came back in the second quarter and it was hurting a little bit more. And then after halftime, I finally took my sock off to look and my whole toenail was gone. So, it was just all bad from there. I couldn’t walk or run. So I just told Coach [Frank Vogel] to take me out.”
Lakers forward Markieff Morris said he has lost a toenail before and that it was an ordeal to overcome. “I mean I played the next game, but s—, man, that s— was like a month and a half before it started feeling better,” Morris said. “Because you don’t realize how much your toe is rubbing against the top of your shoes, or you’re using your toe for power. … It’s a terrible thing.” Said Drummond: “I’ve lost a toenail before. But this one was very painful.”

Andre Drummond could join the line of Detroit Pistons masked men. After Drummond had recent surgery to correct a deviated septum, a problem that’s caused him breathing issues for several years, Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy told the Free Press on Friday that it could make Drummond more prone to a broken nose.
“The only thing is there’s a little bit of a chance that it makes you more susceptible to breaks, which he knew going, which means he may have to wear a mask, at times,” Van Gundy said outside the Quest Multisport facility. “Or if it gets hit. So we’ll see.”

The Houston Rockets today announced they have signed guard Jalen Green, who was the second overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. Green is scheduled to play for the Rockets entry in NBA Summer League 2021, which runs from August 8-17 in Las Vegas. Green (6-6, 178), who turned 19 years old on Feb. 9, was the first player to sign with NBA G League Ignite, a team dedicated to the development and mentorship of top young prospects in preparation for the NBA Draft. In 15 G League games last season, he averaged 17.9 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.53 steals, and 2.1 3-pointers made. Green tallied 30 points, 7 assists, 5 boards, and 3 steals in the Ignite’s lone playoff game vs. Raptors 905.
The Pacers see Duarte as an immediate contributor; there will be growing pains, as there are with all rookies, but he’s as close to a finished product as there was in a draft dominated by teenagers. “The league has become much less about play-calling and more about free-flowing action on the offensive end, and you need players who can shoot the ball, handle the ball, can pass, have a high IQ, and Chris checks a lot of those boxes,” Pacers general manager Chad Buchanan said. “You watch the NBA playoffs, you see players his size and skill level who are succeeding. He can do a lot of things that help in a playoff setting when things break down. The ability to create a shot … that’s super critical in our league. The more guys you have who can do that, the better.”
Ex-Brooklyn Nets player Darius Morris has brought counterclaims against his assault accuser claiming she made him fear for his life, including by sending him and his family death threats, new court papers show. The 30-year-old former NBA player — who also once played for the Los Angeles Lakers — denied Kristen Summer’s allegations that he dragged her by her hair and “violently beat” her as she “begged for her life” in April last year, according to court papers she filed last month as part of her lawsuit.
On Thursday, Morris fired back against Summer, mounting counterclaims of infliction of emotional distress and defamation. Morris claims that Summer has made him “fear for his safety” and has caused him “severe emotional distress including death threats to him and his family,” the papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court allege.
