Blake Hopes to Play Tuesday for Lakers
Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Blake went through a full practice with the team Monday and will return to the lineup Tuesday when the Lakers play the New Orleans Hornets.
Blake has missed the past 37 games with a lower abdominal strain. He last played for the Lakers on Nov. 11.
“I’m ready to go,” Blake said. “Everybody has some issues right now but you deal with it and I can play with it. It’s no problem.”
