Dave Twardzik, player personnel director, will meet with team officials in Phoenix Friday and a decision will be made concerning the open roster spot. Before the injury, Reid was averaging 9.1 points and 6.4 rebounds a game.

Super-size shock absorbers? Emergency retro-fitting, maybe? J.R. Reid and Robert Horry needed something heavy, strong and impervious to Charles Barkley's world-famous backward low-post assault of rump and elbows. Air bags? Left mostly alone to guard Barkley man to man in the Lakers' Game 1 victory over the Houston Rockets on Sunday, the two power forwards had to play Barkley bumper-car style, and there is nobody in the league properly equipped to survive that without some damage.

So it's J.R. Reid at starting power forward now. With Dennis Rodman, who started the last 11 games for which he showed up, released, Laker Coach Kurt Rambis is turning the position over to Reid, who has seen sparse action--and zero starts--since coming over in a trade from Charlotte in March.

It's still a mystery where blue-chip center J.R. Reid is going, but his father mentioned only UCLA and Iowa when asked the destination of the 6-10 prospect from Virginia Beach, Va. Herman Reid Sr., a junior high school basketball coach in Virginia Beach, told the Richmond News Leader: "It doesn't matter to me where he goes. He's got to go where he's happy. If he doesn't, it will be the longest four years of his life. "If he goes to UCLA, that's fine. UCLA is on television a lot.

From the way he started out two years ago, J.R. Reid was on course to be Karl Malone by now. Big, burly, completely beastly inside. Opponents made sure the health insurance policy was in order before taking a charging foul from him. During the last half of his freshman year and the first half of his sophomore year, no college basketball player in the country played with as much power, as much ferocity as J.R. Reid of North Carolina. As a freshman, 14.

Power forward J.R. Reid, traded in the middle of what was developing into by far the best season of his nine-year NBA career, said he isn't coming to the Lakers expecting the same kind of playing time he was getting in Charlotte. "I know I won't get as many touches as I got in Charlotte with a depleted team," Reid said before his Laker debut Friday. "But I just bring whatever I bring--physical play every night, shooting the ball, rebounding, do whatever Kurt [Rambis] wants."
