Lakers’ Medvedenko activated

Memphis, TN (Sports Network) – The Los Angeles Lakers activated Slava
Medvedenko from the injured list and the third-year forward is expected to
participate in Wednesday’s game at the Memphis Grizzlies.

Medvedenko missed the Lakers’ first five contests due to a bruised right heel.
The 6’10” Ukrainian posted career-highs with 8.3 points and 5.0 rebounds per
game with Los Angeles a year ago and was re-signed to a two-year contract
during the offseason.

To make room on the 12-man roster, the Lakers placed forward Jumaine Jones on
the injured list. Jones suffered a strained right calf during second-half
warmups of Tuesday’s 106-98 win at New Orleans.

Jones averaged 5.8 points and 3.0 rebounds during the first five games and
netted nine points in just 12 minutes during the first half against the
Hornets.
