The Lakers’ shooting woes can be exemplified by Russell, who is still “working on” deciding whether or not any given shot is a good one, according to the LA Times. Center Ivica Zubac did not play on Sunday nor did he participate in Monday’s practice due to a quadriceps contusion against the Celtics on Friday. On the other hand, Larry Nance Jr., who sprained his wrist Sunday against the Pelicans, joined the line of half-court shooters after practice on Monday afternoon.
