Los Angeles Lakers Give Positive Update On Veteran Guard

The Los Angeles Lakers have been one of the hottest teams in the Western Conference in recent weeks, and they've managed to do so while fighting injuries, but it looks like the team is managing to get healthy at exactly the right time.

Thankfully, Head Coach Darvin Ham has provided a positive update on veteran guard D'Angelo Russell, who left the teams win over the Houston Rockets with an injury, but Ham has revealed that it was purely precautionary, and if it was a playoff game, D-Lo would have likely remained in the game. 

With a healthy Russell, Anthony Davis and LeBron James, this team all of a sudden looks very tough out West, and if the rest of the supporting cast can continue performing, this is a team that no one will want to play come playoff time.
