The Houston Rockets, depleted at guard by injuries and a failed bid to trade for Derek Harper, signed 13-year NBA veteran Sedale Threatt for the rest of the season. Threatt, 35, has not played since having surgery in October for tendinitis in his knee. He averaged 7.3 points and 3.3 assists in 82 games with the Lakers last season.

Kobe Bryant had a foam-type material inside his nose while talking to reporters Thursday, claiming dryness from a cold was the cause of a nasal issue, not an errant elbow at practice. But a bloodied Lakers image was still an accurate metaphor. Especially with the Clippers nine games ahead of them in the standings. Too early to say a changing of the guard has taken place? That the franchise with 16 NBA championships and a penchant for flair wrapped into drama enveloped by victories had fallen below a franchise with no championships and a wicked habit of winning 37% of its games?

Meet the Laker draft class of '95: He is unknown, and not only to fans, having been scouted only in a postseason all-star tournament in Portsmouth, Va. Most recently, he was playing in a summer league in Sacramento. He visited only two teams--Miami and Portland. He did not even expect to get picked. Rip Van Winkle wasn't as much of a sleeper as Frankie King, but Wednesday, the Lakers used their only pick, No.

There's a team out there that reminds Kobe Bryant of the "Showtime" Lakers. The Clippers. Really? "They're very spectacular. They're fun to watch. There's no question about it," Bryant said Thursday before going a step further. "They have higher jumpers than Showtime, though. " These are the Lakers right now, trying to catch up to their young, fun, fast local rival. They'll play them Friday in a designated home game for the Clippers. "I think they're expected to blow us out," Bryant said.

If Randy Pfund wants to win games, maybe he should think about starting Sedale Threatt at point guard. Threatt was one of the Lakers' leaders in scoring, assists and steals during his first two years with the Lakers. Why waste his talent and leadership with limited minutes? Young, unrefined talent is no replacement for a proven, capable veteran like Sedale Threatt. Randy Pfund, get a clue. CHRIS STAHL Mar Vista

Laker guard Sedale Threatt re-injured his strained abdominal muscle during Thursday night's 96-71 loss to the Seattle SuperSonics and probably will miss the rest of the series. Threatt, making his first appearance since the delicate injury forced him out April 9 for seven games, was going in for a layup with 7:45 left in the second quarter when he felt the muscle tear again. "They put me back in in the second half," Threatt said. "I couldn't even get back on defense."

I thoroughly agree with Mike Downey (Dec. 13) that Sedale Threatt has been a most pleasant surprise for Laker fans and a prime candidate for the All-Star game in Utah. But I must inform Mike that Sedale is not the lowest draft choice (139th player taken in 1983) playing in the NBA. That honor belongs to the Warriors' Ed Nealy, who was selected in the eighth round in 1982 as the 166th player taken overall. Mike, you were Nealy correct. GEOFFREY GILBERT Hermosa Beach

If the Lakers packaged Vlade Divac, Elden Campbell, Sedale Threatt, Tony Smith and Antonio Harvey for a second-round draft pick, I would be a happy camper. KEVIN READING Placentia Is it just me, or are there others out there who are appalled at the economic inequity of James Worthy and Magic Johnson being paid $12 million and $14 million, respectively, for not playing anymore? Apparently, the size of Jerry Buss' wallet is in inverse proportion to the size of his brain.

If the name of the Lehigh quarterback rings a bell, then you must be a basketball fan. Sedale Threatt passed for 207 yards and ran for 52 on Saturday in a 14-10 loss to Princeton. Threatt, a junior, is the son of the former NBA journeyman with the same name who played five seasons with the Lakers during his 14-year career. The younger Threatt, a starter since the middle of last season, has passed for 707 yards and rushed for 171 this season.

Magic Johnson has reached an agreement in principle to become a minority owner and vice president of the Lakers again, as he was before coming out of retirement in January. An announcement will be made after details are worked out. Johnson is believed to be buying the same 5% he originally purchased in June 1994 for about $11 million, then sold back to Jerry Buss last season for about $12 million to clear the way for the comeback.

The Houston Rockets had a five-point lead heading into the fourth quarter Tuesday night at the Summit, then Laker Coach Del Harris decided to open the period with Sedale Threatt at point guard, a curious choice considering Threatt was playing with a bad case of freezer burn after having missed all 11 previous shots in the series, including seven three-point tries. So guess who delivered?

Laker practices, no longer the covert operation of the Pat Riley era, will move behind closed doors next week for the first time all season so there will be no advance warning on what lineup will open against the Rockets in the playoffs on Thursday. Call it the gamesmanship before the games.

Question on many L.A. minds today is whether the Lakers shall recover from Cedric Headache No. 23 in time for the NBA playoffs, in order to have a shot at beating the Chicago Bulls for the championship. Now that they have pounded Orlando, that's a good question. But I have an even better question. My question is, would the Lakers and Bulls have enough players left to finish a seven-game series? By Game 7, the possibility exists that: --Magic Johnson will re-retire.

On the night James Worthy went to the wall one last time for the Lakers, Sedale Threatt went to the well. For the first 46 minutes of the game, he made all of three baskets in 11 shots, with misses on all five three-point attempts. To some, this is a bad night. To Threatt, it's warmups. When he got the ball in the final two minutes, the shots went up faster than Worthy's jersey.
