The Los Angeles Lakers return home Friday night to face the Minnesota Timberwolves, and the only question is whether or not new point guard Ramon Sessions, acquired Thursday from the Cleveland Cavaliers at the NBA trade deadline, will be available to play. Just in case, the Lakers made a roster move on Friday.
The Lakers recalled rookie point guard Darius Morris from the D-League for Friday's game against the Timberwolves, who the Lakers have beaten 18 straight times.
Sessions, Jordan Hill, and Christian Eyenga, all acquired on Thursday, were expected to take their physicals on Friday and possibly be available for Friday. Though with the addition of Morris the debut of Sessions in a Lakers uniform might not be until Sunday.
With their new team, Sessions will wear number seven, Hill will don number 27, and Eyenga will wear number 88.
