[new_royalslider id=”211″]

Ever since being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers, Kent Bazemore has had an opportunity to showcase his talents to the NBA and impress Lakers fans along the way.

Unfortunately for Bazemore, his season will end now as an MRI has revealed a torn tendon in his foot according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:

This is the second surgery revelation of the day as the Lakers also announced that Xavier Henry will undergo surgery on Friday on his wrist and knee.

Bazemore has been one of the better surprises of the Lakers season. After spending the last year and a half seeing minimal court time for the Golden State Warriors, Bazemore has averaged 13 points, three rebounds, and three assists in 23 games for the Lakers.

Bazemore has been excellent for the Lakers, whether starting or coming off the bench. He is excellent at attacking the basket and has shown off his passing ability recently, stepping up his assists in the last 10 games.

This Lakers team is full of players who were looking to prove that they belong in the NBA and Bazemore is the shining example of that.

With Bazemore and Henry both out, expect Wesley Johnson and MarShon Brooks to see a lot more minutes. The Lakers are also expecting Jordan Farmar back for tomorrow’s game against the Houston Rockets so he could each see more minutes as a result.
