Frank Vogel explained why a specific Lakers lineup has been struggling on both ends since the start of the season.

Vogel, the head coach of the Lakers, shared his thoughts on why the lineup of LeBron James, Wesley Matthews, Markieff Morris, Kyle Kuzma and Montrezl Harrell is ‘imperfect’.

“That’s not an ideal lineup but a lot of times the game plays out where I’m trying to get guys the minutes they deserve to impact our team.

Sometimes it results in imperfect lineups, but that sample size is extremely small. We’ll continue to evaluate that, but I’m aware of what that lineup looks like,” Vogel told reporters, via Lakers Nation.

The aforementioned lineup has played in nine games already, spending a total of 49 minutes on the floor.
