Four players of the Lakers will be unavailable in the clash with the Phoenix Suns on Friday.

According to head coach Frank Vogel, the Lakers will be short-handed vs the Suns.

Wayne Ellington is out with a hamstring injury. However, he is close to return. Kendrick Nunn is dealing with a right knee injury and will miss the next three weeks.

Trevor Ariza (ankle surgery) is also out for eight weeks. Meanwhile, Talen Horton-Tucker will miss one month with thumb injury.

The Lakers are seeking for their first win in the NBA season. They lost to the Golden State Warriors in the season opener (121-114).
