The injury that Jarred Vanderbilt sustained during the team’s surprising victory over the Celtics seems to be getting worse.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, there’s a good chance he’s lost for the year, which would be disastrous for the Lakers.

After LA acquired him at the 2023 trade deadline, his perimeter defence, length, and rebounding were all vital components that helped them become the best defence in the league.

Without him, the wing depth that gave LA such a high upside squad suffers greatly. Los Angeles also loses its greatest defender, both on and off the ball, which will undoubtedly present problems as the playoffs approach.
