LOS ANGELES -- After Bojan Bogdanovic missed the Wizards' last game with a sore back and Ian Mahinmi took a knee to the hip that sent him to the floor in excruciating pain, both said Monday they'll be able to play in Tuesday's game at the Lakers.

"I feel way better," Bogdanovic, the Wizards' leading scorer off the bench, told CSNmidatlantic.com following a brief practice at UCLA. "I'll be ready for tomorrow's game. I just woke up like that. I was stiff. Cramps in my back. Still sore but way better."

Mahinmi collided with Richard Jefferson in the 127-115 win over Cleveland on Saturday.

Running full-speed to the rim, Jefferson's knee was buried into the left hip of Mahinmi as he tried to stop the attack. He ended up sprawled across the floor in agony but was able to stay in the game.

The bigger concern was the next 24 hours for Mahinmi, who was expecting stiffness and possible swelling.

"I thought (Sunday) was going to be brutal," Mahinmi said to CSN. "But it's really not as bad as I thought. I'm very pleased. Forty-eight hours after the hit I'm walking regularly. I get another 24 hours before the game I'll be 100 precent, or as close as possible to 100 percent."

The session lasted less than an hour Monday. Coach Scott Brooks called off shootaround beforeTuesday's game which is the first of a back-to-back at Staples Center. They play the Clippers on Wednesday.
