Kyle Kuzma has missed a number of Los Angeles Lakers games this season due to injury, but he isn’t letting that get in the way of having some fun.
On Wednesday night, Kuzma took to Twitter to clown Portland Trail Blazers stars Jusuf Nurkic and Zach Collins for their outfits on the bench.

Both Collins and Nurkic happen to also be missing quite a bit of time due to injury this season.
As for Kuzma, he is currently sitting out with an ankle injury and will not suit up for Thursday’s much-anticipated tilt against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Even when he has been healthy, the third-year pro has not played his best basketball. So far this season, he is averaging just 11.1 points on 34.6 percent shooting per game.
He has struggled to adjust to this season’s new-look Lakers despite hopes that he would become the third option within a three-headed monster made up of himself, LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
Luckily, the season is still quite young. If Kuzma can get back to full strength and improve upon his performances, there’s still a lot of time for him to have a positive impact on the Lakers’ 2019-20 campaign.
