NBA.com staff report

The Los Angeles Lakers expect forward Kyle Kuzma to miss the start of training camp as he recovers from a lower left leg injury he suffered during workouts with Team USA, according to Marc Stein of The New York Times.

Initially labeled ankle soreness, Stein reports the injury is actually a "stress injury" that needs more time to heal.

The Lakers will hold their first training camp practice Saturday (Sunday, PHL time).

Kuzma averaged 18.7 points on 45.6 percent shooting and 5.5 rebounds last season.
