As the Kings navigate a campaign fraught with shifting schedules, rotating personnel and intense rivalries, they might now also have something of a goaltending controversy on their hands. The incumbent No.1 goalie Jonathan Quick – he of two Stanley Cups, an Olympic silver medal and a Conn Smythe Trophy – had played roughly one period in the Kings’ previous five games, and statistically had been outperformed by challenger Cal Petersen. Quick, 35, and Petersen, 26, are not only separated generatio...

Frank Vogel relieved Anthony Davis’ injury isn’t more serious, but knows Lakers face a challenge

In those late hours of Sunday night, the Lakers thought they had a good handle on what Anthony Davis’ injury was. The initial evaluation was a strain, and Davis knocked on wood as he said: “they say everything looks good … “… but you still want the MRI just to make sure.” The MRI on Monday morning in Denver brought the relatively good news the Lakers had hoped for: Davis’ right Achilles tendon was intact, but needed rest. Coach Frank Vogel said he felt relief. “All of our hope that it wasn’t any...
