Lakers Rumors: DeMarcus Cousins Return, Kyle Kuzma Injury Update & Vintage Dwight Howard

The Los Angeles Lakers’ season is three games in now after they defeated the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday. LeBron James and Anthony Davis are beginning to look like the powerful duo that everyone expected them to be, but the Lakers are still missing a big piece of their offense. Kyle Kuzma has been sidelined with a stress reaction in his ankle, but progress is being made in his rehab. Kuzma is now competing in 4-on-4 scrimmages and may be moving onto 5-on-5 soon. Host Jimmy Crowther has the latest IN THE VIDEO ABOVE AND BELOW.

Another piece the Los Angeles Lakers have been missing is DeMarcus Cousins. Boogie Cousins was signed to a one-year deal as a free agent this past summer, but he tore his ACL in a scrimmage during the offseason. Lakers’ head coach Frank Vogel has said that he is not closing the door on a potential return for Cousins near the end of the season. It may be a long shot, but if DeMarcus Cousins can get back to his old self before the playoffs roll around for the Lakers, this team could find themselves with a new big three of Anthony Davis, LeBron James and DeMarcus Cousins.

Speaking of Lakers’ centers, Dwight Howard had a huge game for the Los Angeles Lakers as they defeated one of his many former teams in the Charlotte Hornets. Howard looked like the Dwight Howard of old as he scored 16 points, pulled down 10 rebounds and swatted away four shots; he also went a perfect 8-8 from the field. If Howard can continue to have games like this, he may start to steal the starting center position away from JaVale McGee.

Lakers’ Rumors Discussed:

- DeMarcus Cousins return?
