L.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.”
