Walton could be cleared to resume practice Monday

Great news on Luke returning!

ESPN: Los Angeles Lakers forward Luke Walton said he is hopeful of being cleared to resume practice after he meets with a team doctor Monday morning. Walton has been out with a pinched nerve in his back since Nov. 16. “I feel great, my back feels great,” Walton said. “So hopefully all will go well with the doctor [Monday] and I can get back out there and practice.”

    Awesome, looks like Luke and Ron will both be cleared to practice tomorrow! Now just gotta hope Pau is ok please be ok Pau!

    for all the luke haters out there, having the dude play is a good thing. he can run the offense and does help the team in his own way. i bet the bench will be better with him on it and… as i suggested in an earlier post maybe bynum. i’d feel much more confident with the bench with bynum, lamar, and luke coming off it.

    so starting 5: fish, kobe, artest, gasol, and maybe powell? or brown?

    No lead is safe with Luke on the floor.

      Wth? Luke is a good defender…

      Sad that you don’t know how to appreciate all the small things that Luke brings to the Triangle. Clearly Phil Jackson and Mitch do……I trust them, not you.

      Rather than pissing away all that money on Luke we’d have been better off to have used it to sign someone with talent like Ariza.

        Do you understand nba issues? When Luke was a free agent he came off a very good year. That was his market rate. Many times players don’t live up to their contract. Ariza wasn’t even a Laker when Luke was signed. You are an idiot.
