Kyle Kuzma has been ruled out for the game against the Phoenix Suns on Sunday night.

Kuzma is dealing with a back injury (lower back tightness) and will miss the home game against Phoenix.

“Kuz is going to be out tonight. THT is going to be a game-time decision,” Lakers head coach Frank Vogel told reporters, via Ryan Ward of Lakers Nation.

With Kuzma out, the Lakers will be short-handed vs the Suns, as they are fighting to avoid the play-in tournament.
