Walton in uniform (Updated)

SAN ANTONIO — Luke Walton was set to dress and perhaps to play tonight against the San Antonio Spurs. He had been sidelined for almost two months because of a pinched nerve in his back. “I told him I feel good,” Walton said, referring to Lakers coach Phil Jackson. “Friday was the target date (against the Clippers). … I told him I would be ready if he called me. I feel good enough to play basketball. It feels a lot better right now than it did before this whole thing (started in training camp).”

UPDATE: Walton scored four points and grabbed one rebound in six minutes in the Lakers’ loss tonight to the Spurs. He took four shots and made two. Later, he said he tried to talk a little trash but was breathing too heavily to be understood. He said an unnamed Spur laughed at him, asking, “Why are you breathing so hard?”
