Breaking: Derek Fisher Suspension Likely

Looks like the Lakers will be sans Derek Fisher tomorrow night. This isn’t the best of news, but we all knew it was coming. From the L.A. Times:

NBA disciplinarian Stu Jackson has a long day ahead of him, but of all the scuffles and incidents from Game 2 of the Lakers-Rockets playoff series, he has narrowed his focus on the elbow thrown by Lakers guard Derek Fisher at Houston forward Luis Scola, according to a league source.

Fisher will probably be suspended for Game 3 of the best-of-seven series Friday in Houston. The series is tied at 1-1 after the Lakers’ 111-98 victory Wednesday at Staples Center.NBA disciplinarian Stu Jackson has a long day ahead of him, but of all the scuffles and incidents from Game 2 of the Lakers-Rockets playoff series, he has narrowed his focus on the elbow thrown by Lakers guard Derek Fisher at Houston forward Luis Scola, according to a league source.

Jordan Farmar or Shannon Brown would start in Fisher’s place.

All I can say is thank you Mitch Kupchak for making the Vlad Radmanovic trade that brought in Shannon Brown. That “salary dump” trade could end up saving the Lakers’ season.
