Injury updates

Here are a couple of injury updates that got lost in the shuffle in the aftermath of Game 1. The Lakers’ Trevor Ariza was hit in the groin and wasn’t feeling great afterwards. No kidding, right? He limped out of the locker room more than an hour after the final buzzer. Denver’s J.R. Smith suffered a hyper-extended knee, according to Nuggets coach George Karl. Ariza and Smith were injured during that mad scramble for the ball after Smith missed the second of two free throws with 3.2 seconds left in the Lakers’ 105-103 victory.
