LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Lakers have signed guard Manny Harris to a 10-day contract.
The injury-plagued Lakers made the move Thursday after Nick Young was suspended for Friday’s game in Boston.
Harris is averaging a league-best 30.6 points per game for the Lakers’ D-League affiliate, the Los Angeles D-Fenders. He has played 80 NBA games for Cleveland.
The Lakers had nine healthy players for their most recent home loss Tuesday. Just eight players participated in Los Angeles’ 121-114 loss at Phoenix on Wednesday night. Young was suspended for throwing a punch at Goran Dragic in that game.
Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Steve Blake, Jordan Farmar and Xavier Henry are all out with long-term injuries.
Los Angeles has lost 12 of 13 to fall to 14th place in the 15-team Western Conference.
