Lakers in review: Preseason wraps, team readying for opener
The Lakers completed their exhibition season with three wins in eight tries, falling on Thursday to the Golden State Warriors, 136-97.
Second-year guard Jordan Clarkson suffered a shoulder injury, but an MRI the following day showed it was not a serious concern. The Lakers would treat the shoulder conservatively leading up to the upcoming season opener on Wednesday against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Metta World Peace, the veteran forward who helped the Lakers win the title in 2010, made the squad after playing overseas last season.
With 15 players on the roster, the Lakers are full of hope to start new season, but the picture isn’t pretty.
Coach Byron Scott still hasn’t committed to starting rookie guard D'Angelo Russell.
Meanwhile, in a gesture to raise money for “family defense,” World Peace will raffle off his 2003-04 NBA defensive player of the year trophy.
Odom has since been transferred to Los Angeles, where his wife, Khloe Kardashian, is at his side at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
All things Lakers, all the time.
