Lakers rookie Kyle Kuzma says he's 'playing like garbage' right now

Lonzo Ball (shoulder) is expected to play on Friday

It is unclear whether the organization will address LaVar Ball's comments as they relate to their head coach.

Walton said he "would disagree" with the assertion he had lost the locker room.

"You can see they're not playing for Luke no more", Ball said. The noted sports dad spoke with ESPN's Jeff Goodman while overseas in Lithuania about the Los Angeles Lakers' head coach and made a rather damning allegation regarding Walton's ability to exert control over his own team. They play the last-place Atlanta Hawks on Sunday.

The Lakers are not a good team. We are going to play for him.

"I don't see that the players aren't playing hard", Walton said. No high five's when they come out of the game. The elder Ball has said that the Lakers' coaching staff is "soft" and doesn't know how to coach his son, and he expressed his displeasure with how Walton was using his son in the fourth quarter of games. He's too young. He's too young.

"He ain't connecting with them anymore".

Kuzma, who has been arguably the team's best player this season, has been struggling as of late and is coming off one of his worst performances of the season against the lowly Charlotte Hornets.

This isn't the first time LaVar Ball has tried to put a spotlight on Walton's back.

"No I don't", Walton said.

"Lonzo looked good, but he also looked disgusted", Ball said.

The Lakers tried to prevent this by limiting media access to the families, friends and agents of players, but that obviously isn't solving this problem. Those comments put Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball in the hard position of both defending his father and his head coach. He pulled one of his other sons, LaMelo, from his high school team because of issues with his coach. Once their feud became public, Chino Hills dropped Gilling as their coach. You can't give my son the best player in the league, and don't expect them not to win.

Could this hurt Luke Walton? .

Unfortunately for Luke Walton, he has to hear about it from the father of the Lakers' top draft pick.
