Competitive guard Hart injured his hamstring in practice earlier this week and was forced to drop out.

Although he wanted to start on Tuesday, Lakers head coach Luke Walton insisted he stay out.

But after taking part in a shootaround ahead of Wednesday evening’s tie, he has been upgraded to a game-time decision.

He has been cleared to play against the Warriors but is likely to only have limited game time as he recovers.


“He went through a shootaround today, we’ll see how he feels”


Luke Walton, LA Lakers head coach

Josh, born in Silver Spring, Maryland, is dating nursing student Shannon Phillips.

In an interview, Josh explained how Shannon and he had managed to make long distance work while based on opposite sides of the country.

He said he always makes sure to “FaceTime with his girlfriend” every night before bed.

Curvy babe Shannon recently shared a picture of herself in tight black sports gear, to the delight of her 3k Instagram followers.

“You’re so pretty,” wrote one fan.

Shannon, a student at University of Maryland School of Nursing, is a sporting star in her own right.

She played basketball for the University of Maryland, which may explain why she has been so understanding of Josh travelling to the other side of the country while following his NBA dreams.

Coach Walton spoke to US reporters on whether Hart will play tonight.

He said: “He’ll be a game-time decision. He went through a shootaround today, we’ll see how he feels.”

And he added he would have a better idea of Hart’s fitness once he’d gone back to “get some more treatment”.

With just two preseason games remaining, time is running out to get Hart back to full fitness for the start of the regular season.

Walton stressed Hart was “very important to what we do”.

He went on: “The way he works, what he does so well are the little things that help teams win which a lot of times don’t go down in stats sheets.

“Those are the things that, in my opinion, make Josh special.”
