Lakers rookie Andrew Goudelock suffered from dehydration
Andrew Goudelock had the game of his life. Then he had a scare to follow it.
The rookie Lakers guard began feeling ill on the team plane Friday while traveling to Milwaukee. As soon as the plane landed, he went to a hospital and was treated for dehydration.
He stayed overnight but was cleared to play Saturday against the Bucks.
"I got real hot and I started sweating profusely," Goudelock said of the plane ride. "I knew something was up. I just needed to get more fluids."
A second-round draft pick in June, Goudelock scored 14 points Wednesday against the Clippers on five-for-nine shooting. He had scored a combined 10 points in his previous 10 appearances.
Goudelock replaced fellow rookie Darius Morris as the Lakers' backup point guard while Steve Blake remained sidelined by a rib injury.
