@Lakers: INJURY UPDATE: http://t.co/615wajM4SK @RyanKelly34 had a CT scan today & is a minimum of 6 weeks from being cleared for running and jumping.
Lakers forward Ryan Kelly had his right foot examined on Monday. The examination was performed by Dr. Kenneth Jung, a foot specialist of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic.
The diagnosis from the CT scan was that Kelly is a minimum of 6 weeks from being cleared for running and jumping.
Kelly underwent surgery on his right foot on April 9th, 2013. He was drafted with the 48th pick in the 2013 NBA Draft by the Lakers after spending 4 years at Duke.

He should watch some tapes of him on the 08 team, just hit his shots, use his length, and he would have a place on the team. Who knows? They may think highly of him if they know where his rehab is at and not get a vet PF, and let him and CDR fill out spots 12 and 13 on the roster for the year since you can suit up 13 nowadays.
I see Meeks, Kelly, Sacre, and maybe CDR all playing spot minutes anyhow and Pringles running the main 9 with some small ball with Wes at the 4, unless if LO comes here
