Chandler will provide needed frontcourt depth for the Lakers, who have relied on JaVale McGee and undersized forwards to guard big men during their 4-6 start to the season. And Chandler didn't disappoint, hauling in nine rebounds.

The Los Angeles Lakers got an immediate boost from their newest addition in their win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night, and many people believe LeBron James should be thanking one of his former teammates for that.

After a disappointing loss at Staples Centre to the Toronto Raptors, Lebron James and the La Lakers bounced back with a narrow win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Woolsey fire began Thursday afternoon and as of Friday had ravaged 14k acres of land, threatening over 30k residences. Kim hasn't shared anything on the risk of losing her home since thanking the firefighters on Instagram last night.


The result means that the Lakers have now won five games and lost six as they continue they campaign with new recruit Tyson Chandler making his debut.

Despite Bayless' comments, James has averaged more points this season (26.5 to 24.1), but is down on assists (7.8 to 8.9) and rebounds (7.9 to 8.3).

Boeing warns airlines about equipment failure after Indonesia crash
It wasn't immediately clear if it plans an update , though comments from Indonesian officials indicate they expect one. US aviation regulators said they are drafting an order requiring that airlines follow Boeing's instructions.


Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton said Lonzo Ball was unable to finish Friday's practice due to turning his ankle when landing on another player's foot during a scrimmage period. "I'd like to say it is going to be better the next game".

Butler, who requested a trade during the offseason, acknowledged it's still early but said the team can't use that as an excuse for how they have been playing.

Last season, L.A. had only South Bay Lakers two-way player Alex Caruso to turn to when Ball got injured, and while Caruso provided some good minutes, Walton said they're much deeper in that aspect this season.
