An MRI of Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma’s calf indicates a strain that will keep him out of the team’s Thursday night road matchup against the Miami Heat

Kuzma played 35 minutes on Tuesday night in the Lakers’ 110-101 victory over the Toronto Raptors, but his absence puts the team’s depth to the test against the Heat.

Just last month, Kuzma was dealing with a heel injury, though that only caused him to miss the March 2 contest against the Phoenix Suns.

For the year, Kuzma is averaging 12.6 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game for the 32-19 Lakers, who continue to wait for the return of injured stars Anthony Davis and LeBron James.
