Lakers guard Ball tweaks ankle in practice, may miss game against Kings

After a disappointing loss at Staples Centre to the Toronto Raptors, Lebron James and the La Lakers bounced back with a narrow win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Jimmy Butler added 24 for the Timberwolves, who dropped to 4-8 and remained winless on the road this season.

If last game was any indication, the Lakers are struggling defensively.

Derrick Rose has a strong performance as he scores 31 points, but can't hit a critical shot late.

"Hopefully it's nothing serious", Walton said. But his team found the stops necessary down the stretch and managed to pull off a fighting win.

As expected, the Los Angeles Lakers have signed veteran center Tyson Chandler, the team announced in a new release. They have nothing to lose and everything to gain by adding an experienced, smart, and composed veteran to their lineup-especially at the center position.

Liverpool vs Fulham: Four attackers start! The starting XI prediction
Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 26 Premier League home games, their longest such run since August 2009 (31 games). At the same time, the spectacular football in each game didn't happen but it didn't happen past year as well.

He had nine rebounds in a winning debut Wednesday against the Timberwolves, and Chandler, 36, believes he can play a big role in ensuring the Lakers get the best out of superstar James.

LeBron even called Jones his "favorite player of all time" at one point and said when he owned an National Basketball Association team in the future, he'd save a spot for him in the front office. "And get a dub".

"I told him he needs an opt-out clause wherever he's at", James said with a smile.

While other key players Pascal Siakam had 21 points, Kyle Lowry 16 points and Serge Ibaka 14 points.

With Chandler's calm maturity and stalwart presence on defense off the bench-not to mention the fact that he'll likely back up James and change the dynamic at practice as a fellow veteran-his addition to the team certainly won't hurt in terms of veteran-rookie (or close to it) relations.

"The more pressure I can take off him, it will free him up to do all the special things he has been doing his entire career".
