Luke Walton made a brief stop in Los Angeles recently, visiting the Clippers with the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday. Walton was traded to the Cavaliers for Ramon Sessions last year after 8 1/2 seasons with the Lakers. So far this year, through three appearances, Walton is averaging just 0.7 points per game on 14.3% shooting. In the final year of his contract, Walton said after the game that he'll play "as long as my back will let me. If I'm feeling good, I want to play.

The Lakers have acquired a point guard to help them in their playoff push, trading for Cleveland's Ramon Sessions, according to an NBA official. The Lakers sent forward Luke Walton, forward Jason Kapono and their 2012 first-round draft choice to the Cavaliers for Sessions and forward Christian Eyenga. Sessions became expendable in Cleveland after the Cavaliers made rookie Kyrie Irving their starting point guard. Sessions, who turns 26 next month, was averaging 10.5 points and 5.2 assists for the Cavaliers.

Lakers forward Luke Walton sat out Sunday's game against Portland because of a sore right foot and will see foot specialist Kenneth Jung today to determine the extent of his injury. Walton is believed to be experiencing sesamoiditis, a condition in which there is irritation in the sesamoids, which are small bones bundled with tendons that run to the big toe. The condition typically requires a to-be-determined rest period but not surgery.

Reporting from San Antonio Not that a team needs a lift while riding a seven-game winning streak, but the Lakers might find one on their injury report. Andrew Bynum and Luke Walton both hope to come back quickly after the Lakers' five-game trip, either April 2 against Utah or April 4 against San Antonio, both at Staples Center. Bynum said his strained left Achilles' tendon was feeling better Wednesday, and Walton practiced for the first time Tuesday, doing some non-contact scrimmaging with the team before joining them on their flight to San Antonio.

For the Lakers' Luke Walton, a peak weekend might consist of wrapping up an NBA title, but with that still a work in progress, we asked the 6-foot-8 forward to consider activities off the hardwood. Walton, 28, lives in Manhattan Beach during the season and Rancho Santa Fe the rest of the year. He's single with a girlfriend. SOUTHERN EXPOSURE Around San Diego, I'd spend Friday at Petco Park for a Padres game. They'd probably lose, but I'd still be there.

The doors opened at the Lakers' training facility and tons of players spilled through them Thursday, joyously embracing the apparent end of the lockout. Not really. Metta World Peace ambled around in street clothes for a little while but didn't take part in the first day of voluntary workouts. The only Lakers to hit the court were Devin Ebanks, a rookie last season, and Darius Morris, a second-round pick in June. Training camp isn't scheduled to start until Dec. 9, but the Lakers haven't exactly reassembled.
