The NBA's all-time leading scorer, now a Lakers special assistant coach, is working with the young center to improve his court awareness.
He misses more than four minutes of game because of minor strain in left groin muscle. Kobe Bryant plays point in absence of injured Jordan Farmar and Sasha Vujacic. Rookie Sun Yue awaits in wings.
A lot of things came out of the Los Angeles Lakers' 112-111 loss to the San Antonio Spurs Wednesday night, but I'm going to focus on one...
The Los Angeles Lakers have had an unfortunate stretch in terms of injuries, but their next two games should remind them just how fortunate they actually are.
Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic did not travel with the team today because of back spasms, though he might join the team Tuesday for their game against Houston or Wednesday in San Antonio.
Lamar Odom was on the Lakers' active roster for Sunday's game against the Miami Heat at Staples Center, but he could not play for the third consecutive game because of a lingering bone bruise in his right knee.
Los Angeles Lakers head coach Phil Jackson is at it again...
He scores a season-high 10 points Friday against Indiana, taking advantage of the team's injury situation for more playing time.
With three teammates injured, Bryant is scoring more and his shooting has improved dramatically.
The 6-foot-9 guard from China figures to play more often with Walton, Farmar and Odom out of the lineup.
Gasol has been stuffing the ballot box for the player he thinks is most deserving to be one of the Western Conference's starting forwards... Pau Gasol.
Sasha says name Paul called him rhymes with 'itch.'
He has a rough outing in the loss to the Hornets after regaining his position, but the Lakers will need his production after Lamar Odom is injured.
That's minutes-per-game not age, and the Lakers are concerned about "over-extension."
