The Lakers (36-34) went winless in Week 21 against two sub-.500 teams.  A short-handed loss to the Suns in Phoenix on the second night of a back-to-back might have made some sense -- but losing an 18-point lead to the Washington Wizards at Staples Center was a debacle. Now the Lakers have 12 games left to climb to the sixth or seventh seeding in the Western Conference -- or at the very least protect their hold on eighth place.  That battle takes shape on Monday with a visit to the Golden State Warriors.

The Lakers (17-23) visit the Chicago Bulls (23-16) on Monday night, playing on the second night of a back-to-back. Luol Deng is questionable with a hamstring issue for the Bulls. Oddly, Chicago is just 11-11 at home. They've been dominant on the road at 12-5, but there's a slight vulnerability for the Lakers to exploit. Of course, the Lakers haven't played well consistently. They'll need their best game to beat the Bulls and that's a little much to ask given the minutes played in Toronto on Sunday.

According to the NBA Development League transactions page , former Lakers guard Kareem Rush retired last month. In a recent phone interview with The Times, Rush said that's not the case. "I've retired from the D-League," he said. "[I'm] not retired from basketball completely. " Rush, 33, last played in the NBA for the Clippers on Nov. 17, 2009, tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. He has since worked to get back in the NBA, joining the Lakers' D-League affiliate D-Fenders for the second time in his career.
