One member of the LA Lakers squad who isn’t worried about the team’s current injury crisis, on the evidence of this snap, is center Chris Kaman.

The Lakers could only dress eight players during Wednesday night’s clash against the Cleveland Cavaliers, with Pau Gasol, Steve Nash, Jordan Hill and Jodie Meeks all sidelined with various injuries.

And the Lakers’ luck on the injury front didn’t improve during the game, as Nick Young was forced to leave the game with a twisted left knee.

However, Kaman made use of the extra room on the bench by laying down and having a quick nap.

The 31-year-old, who measures in at 7ft, was seen having a mid-game rest in rather unusual style.

Lakers, despite their long-list of injuries, still ran out 119-108 winners at the Quicken Loans Arena in Ohio.

But while Lakers fans and staff alike hope for the likes of Gasol and Nash to make a swift recovery, Kaman is unlikely to particularly perturbed if they end up having another week or two on the treatment table.
