So, Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic , where is "The Machine"? "The Machine is here," Vujacic said. "I'm just not playing." OK, then, why aren't you playing? "I don't know," Vujacic responded. Coach Phil Jackso n " has a group right now that he's playing. I'm just going to try to be patient." Mostly, Vujacic has found himself in games when they already have been decided. That's an issue for him. "I play a couple of games in garbage time," Vujacic said. "That's not where I see myself.

Shannon Brown winced in pain in the second quarter and after the game, his sprained right thumb giving him so much pain. Sasha Vujacic was happy and sad. He was happy because he was out of the "doghouse" in a big way, starting in place of the injured Kobe Bryant (swelling in his right knee). Vujacic was sad because he was unable to perform the way he preferred and because the Lakers lost to the Denver Nuggets, 98-96, Thursday night Pepsi Center. Even though they didn't shoot the basketball well, Brown and Vujacic played a role in helping the Lakers come from 15 points down in the third quarter.

They knew what was at stake. They knew what was on the line. And they knew they had not been performing up to par in the NBA Finals. For Jordan Farmar and Sasha Vujacic, two guards the Lakers count on to come off the bench and be productive, they both knew they had to fill a void.

Each game Sasha Vujacic plays, it is a step in the right direction for him. After missing eight games with a sprained right shoulder, Vujacic has played in four consecutive games, the one against the Sacramento Kings Tuesday night at Arco Arena being his best.

Lately, Vujacic has played at the expense of Jordan Farmar.

In a move to bolster front-court depth and save about $8 million in salary and luxury taxes, the Lakers agreed to send Sasha Vujacic and a 2011 first-round draft pick to New Jersey as part of a three-team trade that would bring veteran forward Joe Smith to the Lakers. As the fifth guard in Phil Jackson's four-guard rotation, Vujacic had seen his playing time reduced to almost nothing this season. The trade is contingent upon Smith, 35, passing a physical.
