The Lakers may finish with their worst record in franchise history, with injuries to blame.
All-Star guard Kobe Bryant has played in just six games with Achilles and knee injuries. Steve Nash missed all but 10 games. Jordan Farmar, Pau Gasol, Steve Blake (since traded), Nick Young and Xavier Henry have all missed significant time.
If the Lakers had any hope of a playoff run this season, they were quickly dashed with a decimated roster.
