Jamison missed the past five games because of the dreaded “DNP-Coach’s Decision.” Even in the Lakers’ 104-87 victory Friday over the Portland Trail Blazers, Jamison stayed there while seldom-used bench players Robert Sacre, Earl Clark and Devin Ebanks played garbage time.
“It doesn’t make sense at all,” Jamison said in a brief interview with this newspaper. “They’re pretty much telling me my services are no longer needed.”
“Nothing has been told to me or anything like that,” said Jamison, who’s averaged 7.2 points in 25 games this season, including five as a starter. “We’ll keep it in house. But it’s frustrating. You know you can help the team out and want to help the team out. But it’s not going that way. I’ll continue to work hard and do what’s asked of me to do.”
