In losing Lonzo Ball, the Lakers found the biggest hole in their roster: a point guard

The Lakers need to bolster their depth at point guard to survive an 82 game season with Lonzo Ball and Rajon Rondo.

Just last season, Ball and Rondo missed a combined 47 games for their respective clubs. While the Pelicans managed without Rondo, going 7-10 in games without him, the Lakers were less fortunate, going 11-19 in games without Ball.

If one of them misses extended time this season, the Lakers are in trouble. If both of them are sidelined for any stretch, the Lakers’ games will be borderline unwatchable, like they have been at times during the preseason.

It’s not going to be an easy fix, but the Lakers need to address their depth at the point guard position sooner that later.
