Trevor Ariza will be in uniform and ready to go for tonight’s game against the Spurs. How much he’ll play is still in question, but you can see why Phil Jackson made this move. Ariza is long, fast and athletic. Precisely the kind of player the Lakers need to help shut down the Spurs dribble penetration.
“I feel good,” Ariza said after warming up on the court. “I’m ready to go.”
