The @LAKings have activated forward Tyler Toffoli from the injured reserve list, Kings President/GM Dean Lombardi announced today.

Kevin Ding

Could've been such a sweet story: Pau spending off day in LA at the hospital, visiting Kobe. Instead, Pau's only visiting sick children. ;)

Kevin Ding

Will have an update later on Kobe's rotator cuff surgery today. Pre-surgery general estimate was six months of rehab.

Kevin Ding

Remember the glory... RT @Bill Oram: For Pau’s return, fans will be given a commemorative t-shirt. Lakers will show a pregame tribute video.

Ben Bolch

League source confirms @Marc Stein report that Matt Barnes was fined for inappropriate language toward a fan, not Robert Sarver.

Janis Carr

Well OK...RT @Bill Oram: Byron Scott on Kobe: "I think he proved his point this year that he still has a lot left in the tank."

Ben Bolch

Should owners be held accountable for verbal taunts? Doc Rivers: "Most don’t, so it’s not a big issue. Some do and you know who they are."

Ben Bolch

What about verbal abuse from owners? Doc Rivers: "You’ve got to take it. The owner is in the stands, he’s a spectator at the time."

Ben Bolch

Doc Rivers on the need for players to ignore what fans say: "You’ve just got to take it and keep playing."

Bill Oram

Kobe's fatigue was a major problem. What remains in the tank is no doubt high octane gasoline--to perpetuate the metaphor--but how much?

Ben Bolch

Barnes: "If he’s going to say something to me like that, expect me to say something, but then don’t go run and tell when I do say something.

Bill Oram

Not sure national perspective is same as Byron's. Kobe proved he "still has a lot left in the tank?" These 35 games may have proven opposite

Ben Bolch

What did Robert Sarver say to Matt Barnes? Barnes: "You can ask him what he said. He said enough to make me respond to him."

Bill Oram

Byron Scott on Kobe: "I think he proved his point this year that he still has a lot left in the tank."

Ben Bolch

Matt Barnes: "It’s a grown man saying something to another grown man. I’m not going to tell. But ... he told or someone around him told."

Ben Bolch

Matt Barnes said he will play tonight against Jazz.

Beto Duran

"Biggest thing with Kobe is as long as you guys are saying he's done, then he's going to come back" Byron Scott to L.A. media

Ideal minutes for Kobe Bryant? Byron Scott says ‘mid to low 20s’ for his star next season. lakersnation.com/byron-scott-on… http://t.co/zbY5fc80B8

Byron: "I get off the freeway, I get home and I turn my phone on and I have a text from him." DO NOT TEXT AND DRIVE. BYRON SAID SO.

Arash Markazi

USC & ESPNLA have signed a 4-year contract extension. USC football and men's basketball will be on ESPNLA 710 AM through the 2018-19 season.

Bill Oram

Scott jokingly described how Kobe has consoled him instead of the other way around. In the process described by-the-book driving protocol:

Bill Oram

Scott: : "I’m a competitor and I want us to start winning basketball games."

Bill Oram

LAL 1 loss off franchise record for consecutive losses (10). If they get there, BScott said he's "going to feel pretty messed up about it."

Ben Bolch

Matt Barnes on Suns owner Robert Sarver: "We don’t like each other. He didn’t like me when I was there, I didn’t like him when I was there."

Mike Bresnahan

Byron on Kobe, who is undergoing shoulder surgery right now: "It's pretty painful from what I've heard and the rehab is long."

Bill Oram

For Pau’s return, fans will be given a commemorative t-shirt. Lakers will also show a pregame tribute video.

Mike Bresnahan

What sort of reception should Gasol get tomorrow at Staples Center? Byron: "A standing ovation."

Mike Bresnahan

Byron said he would feel "pretty messed up" if Lakers set team record for consecutive losses Thursday.

Bill Oram

Byron Scott was asked what kind of reception Pau should be given at Staples tomorrow. “Standing ovation.”

Arash Markazi

NBA spokesman confirms that "the fine was for Matt Barnes directing inappropriate language at a fan and that fan was not Robert Sarver."

Arash Markazi

Barnes: “When you pay the money to get that close to us who doesn't want to say that I talked to Matt or I talked to Chris during the game."

Arash Markazi

Barnes on continually getting fined: "I’m going to get a summer job at my kid’s school working as a yard dude."

Arash Markazi

Barnes on Sarver: "You can ask him what he said. He said enough to make me respond. We don’t like each other."

Arash Markazi

Barnes said he was talking to 13-year old boy and his dad and a couple of hecklers but it didn't get heated until Sarver got involved.

Arash Markazi

Barnes: "If you’re going to say something like that to me, expect me to respond but don’t go run and tell when I do go say something."

Arash Markazi

Barnes on Sarver: "We don’t like each other. He didn’t like me when I was there and I didn’t like him when I was there so it is what it is."

Arash Markazi

Matt Barnes continues to say his $25,000 fine came as result of an interaction with Robert Sarver but did say he was talking to other fans.

Ben Bolch

Matt Barnes said he understands fans heckling players but not owners.

Ben Bolch

Matt Barnes said Robert Sarver hasn't liked him since he played for Sarver.

Ben Bolch

Matt Barnes said NBA players should be held to a higher standard and owners to a higher standard than that.

Kevin Ding

When I asked, Pau did not exactly give Lakers reason to believe Marc is signing with them, as you see in column: bleacherreport.com/articles/23452…

Kevin Ding

Pau acknowledges the damage done to him by all those Lakers trade overtures. My column from Oakland: bleacherreport.com/articles/23452…

Lakers rookie Jordan Clarkson after his career-high night: youtu.be/r-M-30f5Nf8

Ryan Ward

Jeremy Lin on John Wall & Bradley Beal: “One guy loves to drive & the other loves to shoot. Wall commands so much attention when he drives.”

Ryan Ward

J.Lin on challenge of Wall/Beal backcourt: “Transition, I think that’s what hurt us the most. They were attacking the rim & spacing out.”

Ryan Ward

Wayne Ellington: “I was talking to guys before the game just saying to come out hard with a little more tenacity.” #Lakers

Ryan Ward

Wayne Ellington: “We have gotten off to slow starts the past few games. We need to change that…

Ryan Ward

Wayne Ellington on rhythm vs Wizards: “I made up my mind, I’m going to come out aggressive. We are a team that needs to be hungry…

Ryan Ward

Jordan Clarkson: “Playing in these games is making me more comfortable. I’m just trying to continue to get better.” #Lakers

Bill Oram

As @JoeResnick pointed out, Ellington (28) and Clarkson (18) combined for exactly half of the Lakers 92 points.

Kevin Ding

Klay Thompson (30 points) missed a runner at the buzzer. Warriors' 19-game home winning streak is over. D-Rose: 30 points, 1 assist.

Ryan Ward

Jordan Clarkson: “There’s no off nights for me.” When talking about PG opponents on a nightly basis: Tony Parker, John Wall, Derrick Rose

Kevin Ding

Rose with a 20-footer with 7.0 left in OT. Final: CHI 113, GSW 111. RT @KC Johnson: This is Rose's first 40-minute game since April 15, 2012.

Ryan Ward

Jordan Clarkson: “I think we were just playing aggressive. Moving the ball.”

Ramona Shelburne

They turned up the sound on the rims here at Oracle so all these misses by the Dubs are even more shocking

Mike Trudell

Scott said he was pleased with the play of both Jordan Clarkson (18 points) and Wayne Ellington (28) tonight.

Mike Trudell

Byron Scott on John Wall: "When he's (knocking down his jumper) you just can't guard him." Cited his top-in-NBA speed as biggest strength.

Ryan Ward

Byron Scott on Jordan Clarkson’s performance: “Very happy with the way he played tonight.” #Lakers

Ramona Shelburne

Can you imagine how productive you would be if you worked half as hard as Draymond Green does for every rebound?

Gary Lee

=) RT @RiseupAtown88: @Gary Lee make that 10 when chicago comes to town on thursday

Kevin Ding

Warriors and Bulls both so enjoyable to watch in their respective ways. Pau has 16p, 14r, 8a. ... GSW 105, CHI 104 with 1:10 left.

Kevin Ding

Derrick Rose having an insane game here in Oakland: 28 points, 0 assists, 11 turnovers, 0 steals, 7 rebounds.

Ramona Shelburne

The Bulls starting frontcourt has 14 assists tonight. Their starting backcourt has 1. Some of that is Pau and Noah's creativity, but still

Is it me, or does it seem like Steph is playing HORSE out there sometimes?

Gary Lee

Thanks for tuning in tonight, #LakersNation. Follow me at my personal account @DanDuangdao and #TankYou, Wizards.

Janis Carr

Worthy said he was "disappointed" in Wes Johnson. 'We need to see more out of him."

Janis Carr

Worthy: "They couldnt sustain it....in second half when they had to make adjustments, the ball just stuck."

Janis Carr

That didnt end well. Lakers lose ninth in a row, 98-92. It was fun while it lasted

Mike Trudell

Ellington's career high in points was 28 on 12 of 20 FG's; Clarkson's was 18 on 8 of 18 FG's. Both guards had 3 boards and 3 dimes.

Ryan Ward

Welp. At least Wayne Ellington (28) and Jordan Clarkson (18) got career-highs in points tonight. #Lakers

Kamenetzky Brothers

Back in the day, when he was actually healthy, Nene’s spin move in either direction was just killer. AK

Gary Lee

BREAKING: Wayne Ellington with a new career-high in points with 28.

Mike Trudell

Final: Wiz 98, Lakers 92. Wiz took over in the 2nd half after a great start by LAL. Wall: 22/13/9. Ellington + Clarkson = career highs.

Ramona Shelburne

Such a good game here in Oakland. Warriors up 99-98 on the Bulls with 4 mins to go. Derrick Rose looks the best I've seen him this year.
