Derek Fisher said today his sore left foot was much improved over Sunday night, when he went to the locker room to find out what was wrong during the first half of the Lakers’ victory over the Clippers. He returned to play in the second half, but did not participate in all of today’s practice. He hopes to test it further Tuesday morning in advance of the Lakers’ game against the Kings at Sacramento.
“It started feeling a whole lot better as the night went on and prior to going to sleep last night I called (athletic trainer) Gary Vitti and let him know that I felt confident that we didn’t have to do any further investigating or testing of any kind,” said Fisher , who has started all 77 games this season. “I’ll see if I can give it a go and make positive contributions to the team.”
