No longer needs walking boot
Dedmon no longer requires a walking boot for his fractured left ankle, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Uses offseason to improve physique
In an interview with ESPN Los Angeles Lakers GM Rob Pelinka noted that Ball (knee) focused on improving his body over the summer. "He hasn't been able to play five-on-five basketball because he had to have a scope on his knee," Pelinka said. "But just the way he stayed dedicated to reshaping his body and making sure that if he's playing against a really strong point guard like a Russell Westbrook, who's gonna come at him with his aggressive nature and give him a bump. Lonzo will be able to take it or even bump him back. You'll see that in his physique."

Pain-free, hoping to play in opener

"I don't have a date but I'm hoping to be back for the beginning of the year. Gotta heal up, but I feel great," said Porter. "I'm able to get on the court a little bit right now, do something different things. But my rehab has definitely been very conservative. They're really taking it easy with me, being patient with me."
