Kyle Kuzma will return to the Lakers' lineup on Friday.

The Lakers (3-1) are beginning a three-game road trip (Dallas, San Antonio, Chicago) and will likely have a key player back in their rotation.

Third-year forward Kyle Kuzma expects to make his season debut against the Mavericks on Friday, he said after practice on Thursday. Kuzma says he will see how he feels tomorrow before the team officially confirms his return.

Kuzma has been sidelined with a left foot injury that he sustained while training with USA Basketball this summer. He averaged 18.7 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists last season.
