MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Call it the curious case of Devin Ebanks, the reserve Lakers forward who remains in a bizarre limbo. He's not officially suspended by the team, but he's not playing either. He did not enter Friday's game against Memphis, logging his eighth consecutive DNP since being arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor DUI in Los Angeles in the early morning of Nov. 9. It's safe to say he has had a bad couple of weeks. He was called into the office after the arrest to meet with Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports!, the Lakers have interest in Utah Jazz guard Raja Bell. Bell, a feisty defender who played for Coach Mike D'Antoni with the Phoenix Suns, is in the final year of his contract, earning $3.48 million.  The Jazz and Bell tried to negotiate a buyout over the summer but were unable to agree to terms.  Bell was instead asked not to come to camp in Utah and has been working out independently throughout...

New Coach Mike D'Antoni addressed a wide array of topics at his introductory Lakers news conference Thursday. One issue the team has had so far this season is getting bench production, especially at shooting guard from Jodie Meeks and Devin Ebanks. D'Antoni seemed to have confidence that he'll get the most out of the entire roster. "Jodie Meeks, for example, I told him today the only time he needs to shoot is when he touches the ball; other than that, don't shoot," D'Antoni joked.

The Lakers will introduce a new head coach Thursday. Can Mike D'Antoni get something more out of the backup shooting guard position? Kobe Bryant, through eight games, is averaging 36.3 minutes per game, leaving just 11.7 for reserves Jodie Meeks and Devin Ebanks. It's only natural for coaches to want to limit their players' minutes through the regular season so they're fresh for the playoffs. The more Meeks and Ebanks can bring to the game, the less D'Antoni will be forced to rely on Bryant.

It's not uncommon in warm-weather climates to find hyperventilating news anchors crying out about an upcoming "Storm Watch. " Excuse the jargon seeping into the realm of the Lakers, but this week would be "Phil Watch," followed by the less-anticipated "Nash Watch. " As Phil Jackson debates whether he should return to the Lakers, Steve Nash continues to wait for his leg to heal. Nash missed his fifth game Sunday because of a small fracture in the head of his left fibula. The Lakers said he would not return until at least Friday, which would be when they play Nash's former team, the Phoenix Suns.

Great news. Phil Jackson is writing another book, "Eleven Rings," but it's not scheduled to be published until next year, so there's plenty of time to change the title. And more great news as well for Devin Ebanks, who might be out celebrating for all we know. He gets arrested early Friday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence, it becomes public a few hours later but is lost moments later with the hullabaloo surrounding the dismissal of Lakers Coach Mike Brown.

Lakers 101 - Warriors 77 (final) The Lakers (2-4) got their most impressive, and second, win of the season Friday night over the Warriors (3-3).  The Lakers shot just 40% from the field but did a tremendous job defensively. Golden State struggled inside without Andrew Bogut (ankle) and defensively on the perimeter with no Brandon Rush (ACL) to check Kobe Bryant.  The Lakers were once again without Steve Nash (leg). Bryant led all scorers with 27 points on 10-18 shooting from the field.  He nearly notched a triple-double with seven assists and nine boards.

A previously reported , Lakers Coach Mike Brown plans on using Metta World Peace as his primary backup to Kobe Bryant at shooting guard. What exactly does that mean for the rotation? With Steve Nash out with injury, the Lakers are starting Steve Blake in his stead.  Brown has looked to second-year guard Darius Morris (over veteran Chris Duhon) as Blake's backup. Brown wants Blake and Morris to be active, pressuring defenders.  Blake will probably get twice as many minutes as Morris but Brown will go with matchups.

Almost every Lakers coach has said it since 1996, with the exception of Del Harris . He was lucky enough to get a young, vibrant Kobe Bryant . Phil Jackson , in his second tour with the Lakers, wanted to limit Bryant's playing time. So does current coach Mike Brown . Rudy Tomjanovich might have wanted the same thing too, but his tenure was, uh, a little short. Lakers coaches say they want to curb Bryant's chances of injury and stress on a now-34-year-old body that has logged 51,166 career minutes.
