LA Roundup: Dodgers Already Dealing with Roster Setbacks, Dwight Howard Joining Lakers in Orlando, and More!



Welcome to another roundup, where we gather all of LA sports’ biggest stories of the day!

Baseball season hasn’t even started, yet there are already a few potential issues within the Dodgers‘ 60 man roster. Pitcher Jimmy Nelson underwent lumbar surgery on Tuesday, leaving the DOdgers with one less option for the rotation and bullpen. Max Muncy has also been sidelined with a finger injury and will be out for a few days most likely. There is still a few weeks to heal and prepare, but this is not the way the team or fans expected the season to begin.

The Lakers received some good news today as Dwight Howard confirmed that he would be joining the team in Orlando for the continuation of the 2020 season. Howard has been a key piece on a championship-caliber team, and his absence would have certainly been felt if he chose to sit out. After losing Avery Bradley for the year, this was a shot into the arm for the team. Their first game back is scheduled for Thursday, July 30th against the Clippers.
