Kendrick Perkins said he felt no discomfort Monday after suffering a shoulder injury in Game 4 and will be in the lineup Tuesday night against Orlando.
Perkins has battled should problems throughout his six-year career, and needs to stay healthy for Boston to contain Dwight Howard.
Lamar Odom questionable
Lakers F Lamar Odom underwent an MRI and a CT scan today in Los Angeles. Results indicate a bruise in his lower back.
He is suffering from back spasms and may sit out Game 5. If he plays, don’t expect him to be very effective.
Look for Luke Walton to get more minutes tomorrow night. The Lakers might also use a small lineup, featuring Shannon Brown or Jordan Farmar playing alongside Derek Fisher.
I’m really looking forward to Game 5.
