As has been the trend in recent seasons, the Los Angeles Lakers have several players injured and out of their lineup.
Roy Hibbert felt soreness in his right knee during Monday's practice, but is considered probable for Tuesday's game against the Sacramento Kings in Las Vegas, according to the Los Angeles Daily News. Hibbert declined to have an MRI or x-ray taken.
Meanwhile, Mario Huertas (strained right hamstring) and Brandon Bass (bruised left knee) are expected to miss their fifth and third straight games, respectively. The Lakers hope Huertas can return to practice on Wednesday and then play against the Golden State Warriors in San Diego on Saturday.
Kobe Bryant also missed Monday's practice, but that was strictly to keep the 37-year-old fresh and not injury-related.
