Daily News: The medical news was good for Kwame Brown on Friday.
Coach Phil Jackson said Brown might be ready to practice Monday for the first time since suffering sprains of his left knee and ankle in the Lakers’ victory Nov. 18 against the Chicago Bulls.
If Brown’s practice goes well, then he might be able to play Tuesday against the Phoenix Suns at Staples Center.
“We’re hoping he’s going to practice,” Jackson said. “He had a good workout (Friday) and there’s a glimmer of hope that he’ll be able to practice on Monday.
“We need another big guy to help us out. Phoenix is not the team that you’re hoping to have a big guy back for, but it still helps. He may be able to play after one practice, depending on his reaction to the practice itself.”
