InsideSoCal.com: Lakers forward Tervor Ariza, who has been sidelined for almost four months with a broken foot, has been cleared to resume all basketball activities, though no specific timetable has been set for his return to the lineup.
Ariza practiced with the team Tuesday and felt fine afterwards, but coach Phil Jackson said he wasn’t sure how long it would take the fourth-year forward to shake off the rust from the long layoff and earn a spot back in the rotation.
Ariza, a defensive specialist, had been averaging 5.5 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists before he was injured on January 21.

Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said it would probably be a week or two before Ariza was ready to play in a game.
