Whether or not Lakers fans want to accept injuries as blame for the Lakers failures this season, the fact is…they happened, over and over and over again. With the help of LakersNation.com’s Ross Gasmer and our friends over at Lakers Public Relations, we compiled a list of every injury that took place this Lakers season that required a player to miss games and turned it into a video.
Between Steve Nash’s leg fracture, Pau Gasol’s knee tendinitis, Jordan Hill’s back spasms, Chris Duhon’s back spasms, Hill tearing his left labrum, Gasol’s concussion, Dwight Howard’s torn labrum, Steve Blake’s lower abdominal strain, Gasol’s plantar fasciitis, Kobe’s ankle sprain, Metta World Peace tearing his meniscus, Nash’s hip and hamstring issues, Devin Ebanks’ respiratory infection, Kobe tearing his left Achilles, Jodie Meeks’ ankle sprain and World Peace’s knee cyst, the Lakers missed an unbelievable amount of games due to injury.
Just how many games total did the Lakers miss during the 2012-2013 season? The number will astound you and it’s in our Lakers Nation video below.
