Drummond suffered the injury in the first quarter of the Lakers’ 112-97 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night.

The 27-year-old veteran continued to play as the pain increased before finally checking the injury.

“So it was just bad from there. I couldn’t walk or run. So I just told the coach [Frank Vogel] to get me out.

Although it was a minor injury, Drummond said the pain was no joke. “I’ve lost a toenail before, but it was very painful,” Drummond said. “I can’t even put on shoes. I have my thongs right now. So it’s very, very painful.

Drummond’s next step is simple: “Find out what’s the best thing to do and get back as quickly as possible.”

According to Laker officials, an x-ray of the big toe came back negative and they are cataloging their new big man on a daily basis.

“The frosting, taking care of it, making sure I wrapped it, sealed it,” Drummond said.

It was the first game for Drummond in more than a month after the Cavs removed him from their rotation on February 12, anticipating his departure and looking for a team to shoulder Drummond’s $ 29.5 million salary.

Drummond was waived by Cleveland and the Lakers signed him on March 28.

Despite the injury, Drummond felt good about the departure of the team.

“In this first quarter, a lot of energy from our guys and from me. We have a lot of fun there. It’s just too bad it happened in the first game, ”said Drummond.

LA faces the Sacramento Kings on Friday, but it’s unclear if Drummond will take the court.
