The LA Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma, who is dealing with a stress reaction on his left foot, talked on his injury and time with Team USA:

“At first, I was disappointed because at the time I was with USA Basketball. And as you guys know, I’ve said it a couple of times, but that’s been one of my dreams to put that jersey on and obviously I was disappointed because I couldn’t continue with the team.

But, at the same time, it was good that we caught what I have at the right time. So it is serious, but it’s not serious. It’s all about just rehabbing and getting back to it, progressing well. I’m thirsty to get back out there with my teammates,” Kuzma said.

This past season, the 24-year-old averaged 18.7 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game.
