Help has arrived for the Lakers, albeit a bit too late. Point guards Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Jordan Farmar could all be available on Tuesday night when the Lakers (16-31) visit the Minnesota Timberwolves (23-24). "I think they're all ready to go," said Coach Mike D'Antoni after practice on Monday. "We'll see how everybody wakes up, but there is the possibility that all three can play. " Nash has played just six games this season with back issues. Blake has missed 26 games with an elbow injury. Farmar has made just 22 appearances, tearing his hamstring twice.

Now is the time to submit your ideas to the Twitter Fiction Festival. The call for entries closes at the end of Feb. 4. The festival itself will take place March 12-16. The Twitter Fiction Festival is new -- so new that it's happened only once before. That first time out, it was planned but slightly chaotic, wide open to any kind of fiction-focused use of Twitter that writers might invent. In 2014, there are two official organizers, the Assn. of American Publishers and Penguin Random House.

After going so long with only Kendall Marshall, the Lakers are suddenly awash in point guards. Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Jordan Farmar practiced with the team Thursday, creating a flood of players at a position that had been severely lacking. None of the three will play Friday against Charlotte, and next Tuesday at Minnesota is the earliest they might appear. Nash hasn't been in a game since Nov. 10 because of nerve damage in his back but said Thursday he had "extremely high hopes" of playing next week.

WASHINGTON - A year ago, when President Obama delivered his State of the Union speech before Congress and imagined providing preschool for all 4-year-olds, he followed his expansive vision with a bit of candor. "That's something we should be able to do," he said. The president's tone - more aspirational than expectant - was a nod to the reality of this annual Washington ritual. Little of what the president proposes in his most high-profile speech of the year is likely to get done, at least not any time soon.
