Josh Hart reportedly out through All-Star break with knee injury
The Los Angeles Lakers have had their backcourt depth tested at various points this season, and it appears that will be the case again at least in the short-term.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Lakers guard Josh Hart will be held out through at least the All-Star break with tendonitis in his knee.

Hart has missed two of the Lakers’ last three games. He’s been a key bench player for the team this year, averaging 8.5 points while playing 26.4 minutes per game. LA has already dealt with a number of injuries to key players this season, but it does not sound like Hart is expected to miss much time.
