Talen Horton-Tucker doesn’t want to use injuries as an excuse for the Lakers’ struggles and the loss to the Phoenix Suns (114-104).

Horton-Tucker said the Lakers need to keep fighting and not make any excuses.

“We’re not going to make any excuses, we’re going to just come out and compete,” Horton-Tucker said, via Ryan Ward of Lakers Daily.

The Lakers were forced to play without three players against the Suns, while they also saw Alex Caruso leave the game with a neck injury.
