During the team’s practice yesterday, Jeremy Lin and Wesley Johnson gave the team another scare by not participating dealing with injuries of their own. Fortunately for the Lakers, both felt fine by Thursday morning and will be available when the team takes on the New York Knicks, according to Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News:

Lin has been playing well since the All-Star break scoring 14.3 points and dishing out 5.5 assists during the team’s last ten games. As for Johnson, his 11.8 points and 4.4 rebounds is also an improvement from his earlier play.

Both Lin and Johnson will be free agents when the season ends. Whether or not they return to the Lakers next year will be something to watch during the off-season. The Lakers will have an important summer with a protected top-five draft pick and plenty of cap space to lure other free agents.
