More good injury news; if there is such a thing. This time it’s an Ariza update…

P.E.com: Trevor Ariza shot free throws Tuesday at practice, just a small step in his recovery from a fractured right foot. Ariza has missed the past 35 games and is not sure when he might return. His goal is to play before the playoffs begin in mid-April.

“Everything is going well, except that the bottom of my foot. That’s where the bone is still chipped,” he said. “We’re trying to get this healed. Once that’s healed, we’re in motion.”

Ariza, who had become a regular off the bench for the Lakers as a good defender and slasher to the basket, has been working on the treadmill.

“I don’t feel any pain,” he said.

    I think he will have a huge impact on the team when he comes back. His defense is much better than Luke and he can drive and slash which luke could not do.
