Injured Lakers Derek Fisher and Matt Barnes both got treatment Saturday during practice, but their status for Sunday's game at San Antonio remains uncertain.

Fisher suffered a sprained left elbow in the third quarter of Friday night's game against Charlotte at Staples Center. Fisher got treatment from Lakers trainer Gary Vitti and practiced with the team Saturday.

The Lakers said Fisher is listed as probable for the game against the Spurs.

Barnes, who has been out since Jan. 11 after having surgery on his right knee, irritated the knee during pregame warm-ups Friday night and was forced to shut it down, missing his 26th consecutive game.

Barnes also got treatment from Lakers trainers Sauturday, and he also practiced.

The Lakers listed the small forward as day-to-day.
