Lakers Chat: Lakers vs. Warriors

October 21, 2010 |  6:59 pm

--Here's the quick recap on the developments heading into this game

Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will sit out tonight against Golden State in San Diego, but is expected to play in Friday's game against the Warriors in Ontario.

Lakers Coach Phil Jackson has flu-like symptoms and didn't make the trip to San Diego, so assistant Brian Shaw is stepping into his place.

Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic will start in Bryant's place, and reports indicate that Vujacic is engaged to tennis star Maria Sharapova. With Shannon Brown and Monica's partnership becoming official, that's two engagements in one week. Will there be a third?
