    The amount of injuries befalling the Lakers this season is almost reaching comical proportions, especially to players charged with handling some of the point guard duties. Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Kobe Bryant are all out for varying time periods, and Jordan Farmar, who just returned from a hamstring injury, was held out of Monday’s…

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers lost at home to the stumbling Philadelphia 76ers Sunday night, a low point in a season with a number of them for the Lakers. Pau Gasol wasn’t there — and that was Gasol’s decision, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles.com. It was Gasol’s decision to sit out as his team extended its season-high…

    LOS ANGELES – The Heat got more of a fight than maybe they were expecting in their Christmas Day matchup with the Lakers, but eventually showed enough on both ends of the floor to get the job done. Behind 23 points apiece from Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, Miami used a 9-0 run late in…

    The Lakers have had more than their fair share of injury issues for the second straight season, but they’ll be getting a little bit of help back in the lineup just in time for Christmas.

    Los Angeles Lakers v Atlanta Hawks

    This is a punch to the gut. For the Lakers. And For Kobe Bryant. Kobe will be out six weeks with a fracture of the lateral tibial plateau in his left knee, the Lakers announced. That is the basically the flat part of the top of the shin where it connects to the bottom of…

    Dec 18, 2013, 6:47 PM EDT

    jordan farmar

    The Lakers are playing without any healthy point guards at the moment, which is making things difficult on the team overall, but especially on Kobe Bryant. Bryant leads the league in turnovers with 5.7 per contest, and while he’s only played six games, it’s substantially more than Stephen Curry‘s 4.2 per game for the season.…

    Dec 16, 2013, 1:47 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    There is no movement at the top of the standings as the top five teams went 15-1 last week (and that one loss was to another top 5 team). However, get past that five and you get into teams like the Rockets, Suns and others where trades could really change rankings as we move toward…

    Dec 3, 2013, 5:11 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers vs Washington Wizards

    The real test comes Wednesday — it’s not how Kobe Bryant looked in practice Tuesday that will determine if he returns to the Lakers lineup Friday night, it’s how he feels 24 hours later.

    Dec 2, 2013, 12:58 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    While everyone is focusing on No. 24 returning to the Lakers practices this week — you should hear the radio promos in Los Angeles which just refer to Kobe Bryant as “him” and everyone just knows who is being discussed — the Lakers could be getting close to getting another one of their stars back.…

    Nov 11, 2013, 8:54 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    It was obvious Steve Nash‘s nerve issues in his back were serious Sunday night. You could tell by how he limped and grimaced on the court. And you could tell by his deflated demeanor after the game in which he only played 13 minutes. Tuesday he went and saw a specialist and he will be…

    Nov 8, 2013, 2:49 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Houston Rockets

    The narrative was all about Dwight Howard taking on the Laker team he bolted last summer after a tumultuous season — and if Lakers fans were looking for some schadenfreude they got it. Howard wasn’t impressive. He finished with 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting but just 5-of-16 from the free throw line. He missed key…
