The 2021-22 NBA season for the Los Angeles Lakers was a series of should’ve, would’ve, could’ve.
Plus, the crew could’ve been a force in the West if they had all their players.
Kendrick Nunn was cleared to increase contact in workouts over the past two-plus weeks, sources tell @jovanbuha.

One of those players, Kendrick Nunn, didn’t participate in a single game for the Lakers last season due to a knee injury that kept him sidelined.
The injury was so bad that suspicious speculation reigned all summer, with some reports saying he might not be able to join his team when the season tips off next month.
The latest sources say that Nunn was cleared to increase contact in workouts over the past two weeks.
That is a good sign for Nunn – and good news for the Lakers who are desperate for him to be on the floor.
Nunn’s career average is 15 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 3 assists.
The Chicago native, who is just 27 years old, is known for his three-point shooting.
Until the addition of Patrick Beverley, Nunn had the best three-point percentage for the Lakers.
Again and again last year, fans from LA said that the team would be a lot better if Nunn was suited up.
It sounds like it might be time to see if that is true or not.
Nunn is certainly a talent and would be a welcome addition to the troubled Lakers squad.
But don’t be shocked if he is used as a trade asset if the team commits to a big deal for Westbrook.
