Lakers have been trying several starting line-ups to help LeBron James get on a winning streak, Kendrick Nunn has failed to be on all of them.
Wednesday night, when the Los Angeles Lakers visit the Sacramento Kings, they play for the fourth time this season. The Lakers rebounded from a three-overtime home loss to the Kings in November to win two straight in the series.
The last victory came just this past week when the Purple and Gold team were on their first 4-game winning streak. LeBron James contributed 31-points in a tightly contested 122-114 victory over the Kings.
That’s who the LA team will again be depending upon to take them through as they continue their struggle to find a consistent yet efficient second scorer. Malik Monk showed the signs of being that before the last game against the Grizzlies.
Kendrick Nunn could also become a big scoring option until Anthony Davis comes back if only he could return to play. Lakers fans have lost it while waiting for the guard to return every week since October.

NBA Twitter is sick of Kendrick Nunn’s unavailability
The former Heat shooting guard did not take part in Tuesday’s practice, as he has not yet progressed to that level of his rehab, according to head coach, Frank Vogel. Coach discussed Nunn’s progression as he continues ramping up from the bone bruise that has sidelined him the entirety of the season.
Frank Vogel says Kendrick Nunn is “getting closer” but still has no timetable moving forward.

They want him out along with Brodie.
I hope I’m wrong but I’m starting to think Nunn will never play for the Lakers. https://t.co/ekCH4w7SjZ

“If you could get a player like Jerami Grant, now that would take probably [Talen] Horton-Tucker and maybe that ’27 first and maybe Kendrick Nunn to make the money work.”
