Japanese forward Rui Hachimura sustains the injury in the Lakers' narrow loss to the Mavericks

Los Angeles Lakers forward Rui Hachimura underwent surgery to repair a broken nose and will be re-evaluated in one week, multiple outlets reported Friday, November 24 (Saturday, November 25, Manila time).

The injury occurred Wednesday in the 104-101 loss to the Dallas Mavericks.

Hachimura, 25, is in his first full season with Los Angeles after being acquired in a trade with the Washington Wizards last season.

A valuable contributor off the bench, Hachimura is averaging 11.8 points and 3.8 rebounds in 12 appearances (one start) this season. He missed four games earlier this season due to a concussion.

The Lakers face the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday in the first game of a four-game road trip. –
