The Los Angeles Lakers have suffered yet another injury on Monday night with Wesley Johnson going down with a knee injury in the first preseason game against the Denver Nuggets, according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:

Along with Johnson, the Lakers have been dealing with a few injuries over the past few weeks. Nick Young, Xavier Henry and Ryan Kelly are all dealing with health issues. Young underwent surgery on a torn ligament in his right thumb resulting in as much as two months to be missed for the veteran guard/forward.

Henry is still recovering from off-season surgery on his knee while Kelly deals with a hamstring issue. Kelly may return as early as next week. Henry’s return is uncertain.
