(Lakers GM Mitch) Kupchak also told the Los Angeles News Group the Lakers plan to apply for a disabled player exception for a season-ending injury to Xavier Henry ($550,000). Kupchak also said the Lakers will apply for the NBA’s hardship exception, which grants teams the right to add 16 players on their roster when they field four players with overlapping injuries. Lakers forward Ryan Kelly will miss at least five more weeks because of a torn right hamstring,

“We would have to find a better player than who is on our roster now since you have to cut somebody,” said Kupchak, referring to the NBA allowing a maximum of 15 players on a roster. “I’m not sure those players exist as free agents. When we get something closer to the trade deadline, there might be something there.”

“I love L.A. I also love my wife, by the way, but I love L.A. and I don’t want there to be any mistake about it. We want to be part of the fabric of this community,” said [Steve] Ballmer, who stepped down as Microsoft’s CEO early in 2014, shortly before he rescued the Clippers from the clutches of disgraced Donald Sterling and bought the franchise for $2 billion.

“We’re moving to Inglewood come hell or high water,” he said of a proposed arena near the site of the stadium being constructed for the Rams and Chargers. “We gotta have a house. So we’re working on a plan to get our own house. We want to get our own house. It turns out the way this works in L.A., which is much beloved to me, that if you start now you might be done in six years.” He then urged fans to contact their Assembly representative and state senator to urge approval of legislation that would accelerate the process. He probably inspired more than a few emails and phone calls.
