Ron will play tonight against the Wiz!
L.A. Times: Lakers forward Ron Artest took part in a Tuesday afternoon shoot-around and will play tonight against the Washington Wizards.
Artest missed the team’s White House visit Monday because of intestinal flu-like symptoms.
The Lakers (33-11) are 1-2 on an eight-game road trip, though tonight’s opponent has one of the worst home records in the NBA. The Wizards are 14-29 overall, 8-14 at home.
Artest has been slowed by painful swelling in his feet and scored only five points in the Lakers’ 106-105 loss Sunday to the Toronto Raptors.
