The Los Angeles Lakers trailed the Indiana Pacers at halftime of their game on Friday night by a score of 54-46 and if they’re going to make a comeback, they’re going to do so without another one of their key contributors. Lakers guard Alex Caruso is the latest Laker to leave the lineup after the guard had a nasty fall during the second quarter of Friday’s game, hitting the back of his head on the Staples Center hardwood after diving for a loose ball.

Caruso left the game and did not return. At halftime of Friday night’s game, the Lakers announced that Caruso would be out for the game with a bruise on his head. While it looked like Caruso was at risk of a concussion, he has not yet been diagnosed with one and is not in the concussion protocol, according to The Athletic’s Jovan Buha.
