Jordan Farmar and Steve Nash will be available Tuesday against the Rockets and see time next to each other in the backcourt.
The back-court has been a struggle all season for the Lakers but seeing that Farmer & Nash could return tonight against the Rockets is great news. Farmer had hit an average of three 3-pointers per game in the last nine games before his groin injury. I still wouldn't expect these two to come back into the lineup and light the world on fire. Play them with caution over the last few games of the season.ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Ahmad Brooks (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday.
According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, Brooks is going through the league’s post-concussion protocol this week, which could create more opportunities for Tank Carradine to showcase his skills as an outside pass rusher. The main subs for Brooks on Sunday is rookie Eli Harold, who is ready for the increased workload, however Cory Lemonier and Tank Carradine will be ready to go if needed. Analysis: Dom Murtha
