Max Christie is expected to miss the Lakers' game against the Nuggets due to a right ankle sprain.
Max Christie suffered a right ankle sprain on Thursday night, which prevented him from playing in the second half of the Lakers’ game against the Nuggets.
Christie suffered the injury at the conclusion of the second quarter after being fouled while driving to the basket and rolling his ankle. It happens at a particularly bad moment, as the Lakers have recently been severely impacted by injuries.
In fact, Christie received a rare start against the Nuggets after D’Angelo Russell was forced to sit out just prior to tipoff because of a knee injury.
Before leaving the game due to an injury of his own, Christie finished the first 15 minutes of play with seven points, two rebounds, one assist, and one steal on 2 of 7 shooting.
Christie may need to miss at least a few games due to his ankle sprain, which would further deplete the Lakers’ roster. It is still unclear how serious the injury is.
Trade rumors didn't catch Max Christie's attention.
The NBA trade deadline has passed, and despite being connected to a number of players, the Lakers made no deals.
Christie, who is 20 years old and full of potential, was mentioned in some trade rumors as a result. However, he stated he ignores them because he has no influence over them.
In response to the rumors, Christie stated, “Yeah, that’s out of my control.” “Just come up and be a pro, like I’ve said many times this year. All I can do is that. Work as hard as I can, be a professional, and arrive on time.
As previously stated, I have no control over the trade rumors, therefore there’s no need worrying about them if I can’t do anything about them. Therefore, all I have to do is show up and give it my all, either for this squad or, in the event that I wind up on another team, for that team. All I have to do to be the greatest player I can be right now is strive to be the best version of myself because it’s the Lakers.
