LOS ANGELES -- Coby Karl will be playing today at the Staples Center.

It just won’t be against his father’s team.

Coby is scheduled to play in an afternoon game for the NBA Development League’s Los Angeles Defenders against the Rio Grande Valley Vipers. But at least he will sit on the bench for tonight’s main event between the Lakers and the Nuggets, coached by George Karl...

...Kupchak said what’s best now is for Coby to get playing time. He wasn’t getting that with the Lakers, having logged just four minutes in two games...

...The Lakers must make a call on Coby by Jan. 10. If he’s still on the roster then, his contract is guaranteed for the season.

“It’s tough to speculate on what’s going to happen two months down the road,’’ Kupchak said.

The Lakers, though, will have a much better idea once they see Coby log big minutes in the NBADL.
