Rajon Rondo just took the floor to warm up and will consult with team afterward to determine if he will play against Minnesota tonight according to Luke Walton.

I'd consider running this starting lineup:

PG: Rondo
SG: Svi
SF: BI
PF: Kuz
C: Zubac


Towns is a bad fit for Zubac, he struggles with quicker bigs who can play on the perimeter.


None of the Laker bigs are good at defending the perimeter.

Rajon Rondo is warming up on the court right now, and will huddle up with Luke Walton and the training staff afterwards to determine if he will play tonight.


No Jeff Teague or Robert Covington for the Wolves tonight, per head coach Ryan Saunders.

@LakersReporter

Rajon Rondo told us on the @SpectrumSN pregame show - which will air coming up soon - that he will return to the line up tonight against Minnesota. He’s been out since Christmas Day at Golden State.

Oh

Anyway Luke’s answer at his presser just now didn’t suggest anything as eminent as Sunday. They are being I mean I guess it could happen on Sunday but they are being extremely noncommittal about LeBron.

They haven’t been telling the truth for weeks. I’ll be surprised if he is back Sunday.

I also don’t expect Lonzo to be back this season. Maybe the playoffs if they actually do make it.

Lebron continues to preserve himself for the playoffs to the point that we don't get in. Makes absolutely zero sense.

Sorry, this organization needs to have this dude risk it. Hell, nobody is asking him to play 40 minutes, in fact prior he was playing one the lowest minutes per game of his career. DO SOMETHING. We cannot afford to lose more games with Ingram running the show and having Kuzma shoot until he gets hot. It isn't working.

All this talk of "he wants to be out there" is horse (bleep). Dude knows we aren't winning it at all this season and doesn't care. If this was Kobe you know he would be out there battling. Sick of this Queen James hijacking this franchise and running everything.


Disagree completely. This team isn’t good enough to contend this season.

Why risk coming back too soon just to potentially make things worse with his health? Even with LeBron there’s a good chance we don’t make it out of the first round as currently constructed. The man is 34 years old with tons of mileage it’s best to play it safe when this is a throwaway season anyways. Everybody knows this wasn’t the year for us to contend

We need to make the playoffs for several reasons. The young players need the experience desperately. The fans have been starved playoffs for years. This is a period where we need to look half way decent and attract free agents. No we are not going to win a title this year but the playoffs is a must.

Our current remaining schedule has 5: freebies (excluding one suns game because LeQuit is probably not going to play and we could easily lose)
17: 50/50 games and 10: games where we are not likely to win. Compare that to easy Clippers schedule and every game is going to count. If the mentality is that we aren't going to win a title this year so who cares if we make the playoffs.. it does not look good for the future at all. This isn't Kawhi Leonard where we need to pamper this dude and convince him to stay. This is a guy locked up for 3 years.
