Lakers’ Medvedenko activated

Memphis, TN (Sports Network) – The Los Angeles Lakers activated Slava
Medvedenko from the injured list prior to Wednesday’s 110-87 road loss to
the Memphis Grizzlies.

Medvedenko, who did not see action in the loss, 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.
