from Today's LA Times:

Shaq to Have Surgery Today.... As a precaution, the Lakers have invited veteran centers Ike Austin and Duane Causwell to a two-day tryout camp beginning today in El Segundo.
"We can't anticipate Shaquille participating in training camp," Kupchak said.
Guards Jeff Trepagnier (USC) and Mitchell Butler (UCLA) also will compete for the next two days for a chance to come to training camp, with about a dozen others.

Tracy Murray, acquired in the draft-day deal with the Toronto Raptors, is recovering well from April hip surgery. He has worked out at the Laker training facility, and the club expects him to be healthy for training camp, which begins Oct. 1.... Bryant, Murray, Derek Fisher, Mark Madsen, Kareem Rush and Rick Fox, among others, already are on the floor in El Segundo.... Coach Phil Jackson drove in from Montana late last week.

Jeff was my high school teamate and I'm rooting hard for him to make training camp and then the team. He's got a great vertical leap (holds a pac-10 record in the high jump) and is great in the passing lanes. If he gets the confidence back in his jumper he might actually find time in the rotation.

I think that the Toe incident is making too much noise. As long as they are healthy in the playoffs, as they been proving they are the team to beat.

Shaq is expected to recover fully by then (Playoff's), that of course is hoping that nothing else flares up with his toe again during the regular season, but the physicians that evaluated Shaq's toe before the surgery, had stated that he will be relieved from the pain he experienced all year long.

So any update on who won the "right to go to training camp" battles?
