Steve Blake started and played 32 minutes in his return to action Tuesday as the Lakers fell 109-99 to the TWolves.
Blake finished with zero points on 0-for-2 shooting but did add five rebounds, six assists, and three steals in the loss. Head coach Mike D'Antoni went with a three guard starting lineup that did NOT include Kendall Marshall, but rather Blake, Steve Nash, and Jodie Meeks.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Luol Deng (knee) won't return Sunday.
Michael Beasley is likely the candidate to replace the Deng starting minutes for the rest of the way. There is no word on the long term implications of the injury yet, but if there is, Beasley might be a solid play for the rest of the season. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Athletics reassign Luke Carlin, Max Muncy and Andy Parrino to minor league camp.
One of these things is not like the other. Muncy is a 23-year old prospect, while Carlin and Parrino are older journeymen. Muncy, a first baseman, his 21 home runs in 2013 at High-A in 428 plate appearances. But the power hasn't translated to Double-A yet as he hit just seven home runs in 530 plate appearances there last year. Muncy isn't really a prospect you have to know, but he's far more notable than Carlin and Parrino. Analysis: Brett Talley
