fisherL.A. Times: His coach called it a slump. Derek Fisher was not about to argue with Lakers Coach Phil Jackson’s perspective.

Fisher’s shot has betrayed him, his two-for-nine shooting against the Memphis Grizzlies another sign of his struggles.

“The results of it, yeah, it’s a slump,” Fisher said. “As far as how I feel, no. It’s also kind of like a combination of limited minutes. Also, on practice days, I’m not doing much either. He’s resting me between days too.”

Over his last five games, Fisher’s shot has been off.

He is seven for 31 from the field (22.5%) and one for 15 from three-point range. He has scored only 16 points during that span.

“He’s just in a slump. Players go through slumps, and he’ll work that out,” Jackson said. “He’ll get some extra shooting and he’ll be right there, ready to go.”

    he’ll get his shot back, provided that he doesnt continue trying to play like a scorer..if remains a shooter for the lakers, it’ll be the best way we can go about having him score

    Fish is the ultimate pro. He understands the importance of the post season. Been there, done that. Shot is not falling but shooters keep shooting. It’s his leadership and locker room presense that makes him so valuable. What’s helping the Lakers right now is the emergence of Shannon Brown. Increase his minutes and move Farmar farther down the bench. I like Farmar, but doing what’s best for the team should always come first. As a fan, Brown is just playing better and gives us a better shot for a title run as the #2.
