Injuries may leave Lakers shorthanded against Pacers

The Los Angeles Lakers are 0-8 without Lonzo Ball in the lineup, and they won't have their rookie point guard Friday night against the visiting Indiana Pacers at Staples Center.

Ball will miss his third straight game with a sprained left knee. The injury occurred during overtime of a 107-101 win at the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday, which marked a season-long fourth straight victory for Los Angeles.

Ball averages 10.2 points, one of seven Lakers in double figures. More importantly, he leads in assists (7.1) and rebounds (5.3).
