The Lakers split a four-game road trip, an improvement over recent weeks when wins were hard to come by. Now at 11-14, the Lakers are close to getting Pau Gasol back from knee tendinitis. In theory, Steve Nash is also almost ready to return from the leg injury that has kept him out of all but a game and half of the regular season. All told, the Lakers are four losses behind the cumulative predictions for weeks 1-7 . Going into week eight, the Lakers have their easiest stretch yet, just two games, with the Charlotte Bobcats visiting on Tuesday and then a trip to face the Golden State Warriors on Saturday.

The "Kobe Bryant as de facto point guard" experiment will continue Wednesday night as the Lakers visit the Phoenix Suns. The Suns are tied with the New Orleans Hornets for the worst records in the Western Conference at 15-30. Phoenix recently fired Alvin Gentry, and former Lakers guard Lindsey Hunter has taken over coaching duties. The Lakers are coming into Phoenix on the second night of a back-to-back. It's a game they need to win if the team has hopes of climbing back into the top eight in the West.

The Lakers added to their roster over the past week, inviting free agents Shawne Williams and Xavier Henry to training camp . Though terms were not released, neither is expected to have a full guarantee and will have to earn a spot on the team's 15-man roster (although the Lakers could decide to carry just 13 or 14 players). The Lakers were also linked in reports to 35-year-old forward Pete Mickeal and veteran point guard Sebastian Telfair . A player the Lakers once pursued in trade, Michael Beasley , was waived by the Phoenix Suns.
