The Los Angeles Lakers are set to miss one more player for tonight’s game against the Miami Heat. Talen Horton-Tucker has been suspended for one game by the NBA for leaving the bench during an on-court altercation in the game between the Lakers and the Raptors.

The 20-year-old shooting guard was one of the key players in offense during LA’s last three games as he averaged 16 points per game while the Lakers won two out of those three games.

This season, Horton-Tucker is averaging 8.4 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game for the reigning NBA champions.
