When Ron is on the floor, the Lakers’ offensive efficiency is 5.1 points better than when he’s on the bench. On defense, he has a similar impact as the team’s defensive efficiency is 4.8 points better when he’s on the floor than when he’s on the bench. These splits — especially on defense — are some of the best on the team and represent a player who clearly impacts team performance even if he’s had his ups and downs as an individual performer.

because there is nobody behind him in the rotation ... has little to do with Metta level of play
Mike D'Antoni says he's not optimistic that Metta World Peace returns before end of regular season. Jodie Meeks starts tonight vs. Minny.
Surgery set for tomorow. Looks like its gonna be a six week thing. I picked him up from the airport today. Really limping bad. Says its not painful like he thought it was gonna be. We at the dr office now and he's in a positive vibe. Just trying to focus on the solution, not the problem. He is itching to get back. I'll keep y'all REAL fans updated. Peace.
“@LakersReporter: Meeks to start in place of @MettaWorldPeace (knee) tonight. LAL were +3.4 w/MWP in & -5.3 w/him sitting, the best of any Laker.”
