What is the latest on Howard's back? Do they think that he'll be ready when the season starts?
It's looking like he'll be ready on opening night, although he'll likely miss the entire preseason.
Most people...myself included...hear "back injury" and associate a difficult recovery and lingering issues with it. That's not the case with this particular back injury, from what I understand. Right now he's at a point where they're taking it VERY slowly, and they're in the process of strengthening some muscles. Not only should he be back by the beginning of the season, he should fully regain his form once he gets his conditioning to where it needs to be.
Lakers sign Chris Douglas-Roberts to a training camp deal. He was pretty productive a couple of years ago with Milwaukee & New Jersey, then went overseas last year during the lockout. Doubt he makes the team, but he's got a shot.
Hey Pete. Since you're a mod on LG and all, maybe you can get something done about the home page over there. I've always noticed that they don't give a s**t about it and it's always out of date, but main story right now is announcing D12 coming to the Lakers in a 4 team deal. lol
