Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic is available to play for the first time since spraining his right shoulder on Feb. 18 against Boston.
The 6-7 Slovenian told us after Tuesday’s shootaround – during which he lofted shot after shot at the basket – that he was feeling much better and expected to go against the Raptors. While wearing a shoulder brace, Vujacic added that he’s been painfully eager to return to the team, which went 4-4 in his 8-game absence.
Vujacic went through practice with the team on Monday, staying late to put up some additional shots with Ron Artest.
Previously, Vujacic had been unable to shoot with his right hand, instead likely setting an NBA record for most off-hand free throw attempts.
Unofficially, that is.
