Lakers center Mo Bamba will miss at least four weeks with ankle sprain

For a third season in a row, the Los Angeles Lakers haven’t been able to catch a break when it has come to injuries.

In December, Anthony Davis suffered a stress injury in his right foot and was forced to sit out for over a month. The injury had a ripple effect, as it caused LeBron James to take on a heavier workload and play heavy minutes.

James would later suffer ailments in both of his feet, and he is currently out with a tendon injury in his right foot. He is expected to be out until at least late March.

Now, backup center Mo Bamba, who was acquired in a trade about a month ago, will miss at least four weeks with a high ankle sprain he sustained in Sunday’s win over the Golden State Warriors.

Bamba’s ability to block shots, secure rebounds and hit 3-pointers will be missed.

In his absence, the Lakers will have to go small whenever Davis isn’t on the floor, unless they end up picking up another true center.
