Kendrick Nunn is working out but not doing five-on-five drills yet

·1 min read

This past season, Kendrick Nunn didn’t see the court at all during the regular season because of a bone bruise in his knee.

The Los Angeles Lakers signed him last summer using their taxpayer mid-level exception, and he was expected to give them a significant lift off the bench.

Nunn recently said he feels 100 percent healthy, and therefore some fans are holding out the same expectation for the 2022-23 season.

However, although the guard is putting in work, he still has a way to go before he is cleared for full basketball activities.

Via The Athletic:

“Nunn recently spoke with Spectrum SportsNet about his health and said he feels 100 percent,” The Athletic’s Jovan Buha wrote. “He has been training with the younger Lakers – [Austin] Reaves, [Stanley] Johnson, Wenyen Gabriel, Talen Horton-Tucker, and Mason Jones – during their Monday through Thursday offseason workouts. He hasn’t resumed five-on-five play yet, which is the next big hurdle. It seems like he should be ready to go by the start of training camp, but recovery isn’t always linear.”

Assuming Nunn is fully good to go before the start of training camp, he could be of great help to the Purple and Gold this coming season.
