Kersey Reports No Foot Pain

November 16, 1996|SCOTT HOWARD-COOPER

Jerome Kersey, hoping along with the Lakers for a Sunday return, reported no pain Friday after a 30-minute pregame workout at the Forum, his first physical activity of substance since a broken left foot sent him to the sidelines.

Today, if there is no stiffness or swelling, he will attempt a full practice with teammates. If that goes well, he could be activated before Sunday's game at Phoenix, filling the roster spot of Cedric Ceballos, who went on the injured list.

"That looks realistic," Kersey said. "There was no soreness today. That's the thing I'm looking at.

"I thought I would have some discomfort. But there's none there. I've got a good threshold of pain. But if it hurts, I'm going to tell them."

If Kersey suffers a setback, Trevor Wilson, sidelined by tendinitis in the left knee, could be activated instead.
