EL SEGUNDO - Fatigue continues to get the better of Sun Yue, forcing the Lakers’ rookie guard to mainly watch practice due to mononucleosis.

Through an interpreter, Sun said Saturday that he no longer has a high fever nor is he contagious. He started out practice with the rest of his teammates, taking part in the warmup and stretching period.

However, Sun acknowledged that his body still feels weak. He apparently tried to do too much at Friday’s morning practice and later that afternoon, complained of dizziness.

“He was able to do two drills today and then he got tired," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. “His legs and his lungs both gave out on him. But that’s not unexpected."

Sun’s condition is being monitored daily, by the Lakers’ medical staff and through the interpreter, Sun said that there is no timetable set on his being cleared for all basketball-related activity. However, it does not appear that Sun will be out for an extremely lengthy stretch of time.

Of course, the longer that Sun remains out, the further he falls behind in learning the system. Although the two-year guaranteed contract that Sun signed this summer essentially secures him a roster spot, the longer that he is out, the less opportunity Sun would have to compete for playing minutes.

“It’s very disappointing for him," Jackson said. “But at least he’s here, now. For the first three days, he couldn’t come to our workouts."

That absence, said Jackson, prevented Sun from visually absorbing what was being taught on the court.

When asked if he was bored at practice, mainly sitting on the side, Sun answered in English, “Yes."

EL SEGUNDO - Either Sasha Vujacic is a very fast healer or the left ankle sprain that he suffered earlier this week in training camp, was of the minor variety.

Vujacic took part in all phases of the Lakers’ morning practice on Saturday, although he was mindful of taking his cuts at mid-speed, rather than at full throttle.

According to Lakers coach Phil Jackson, Vujacic did not experience much swelling in the ankle.

EL SEGUNDO - Guards Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher, along with forward Pau Gasol all were given Saturday morning off from practice.

However, the three Laker starters were expected to practice Saturday evening, during the second-to-the-last session of two-a-day workouts that the team will have.

Lakers coach Phil Jackson said that Gasol had a impressive workout during Friday’s evening practice. Jackson said that although Bryant has not been shooting the ball particularly well in practice, his speed is at full capacity.

Disappointed about the news on Yue. Happy to hear Sasha's ankle isn't serious. Kobe's not shooting well in practice? That's not a good sign.

Kobe's will be Kobe and he'll shoot his way out of whatever is up with him. I'm really worried about Sun, I hope he gets better.
