Ryan Kelly could make Lakers preseason debut vs. Jazz

The Lakers may have some good injury news as Ryan Kelly might be ready to hit the floor. The Los Angeles Lakers have been struggling with injuries through preseason, but second-year power forward Ryan Kelly could make his preseason debut against the Utah Jazz Sunday night, according to Lakers sideline reporter Mike Trudell.

Hope for healthy Lakers squad fading

LOS ANGELES – Before the start of training camp, Los Angeles Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said he expected the Lakers to contend for a championship, and he was pinning his high hopes on the health of Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash and Carlos Boozer.

Scott plays it tough with rookie Randle

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- The criticism comes in waves, all of it soaked with a generous dose of old-school, tough-love philosophies. Yes, Los Angeles Lakers coach Byron Scott said he is hard on Julius Randle, the team’s top draft choice. But that doesn’t mean Scott plans to ease up on the rookie power forward out of Kentucky, the seventh-overall pick in June’s draft. “I think we all tend to forget too -- because we are in the National Basketball Association -- that he is 19 years old,” Scott said last week after a practice at their facility here.
