"I'm not arguing; I'm explaining why I'm right."
Well, listed as game-time decision, but the same guy who put together the Laker game preview on NBA.com, has JO in the starting 5 pictures that show the matchups, whereas yesterday he had Al there.
So at least they think he'll play.
Carlisle also said he was hopeful he'd play. I take that to mean he thinks it's more likely than not, but you never know.
As long as JO is back and feelin' decent by Friday, I'll be happy. Won't loose sleep over him missing one more game.
