Miami-Dade Police say the man, who had a ticket for the flight, began yelling loudly before he bypassed a gate agent and got on the plane.Officers say the man began saying things that led them to believe he was in some sort of crisis, forcing them to take him into custody and delay the flight’s takeoff.
The costs of the Los Angeles Lakers week-long trip to China are still playing out only hours after the team arrived back in the United States. Because the trip home took longer than usual, the Lakers will have to push further examination of their star big man Anthony Davis until tomorrow after the flight across the Pacfic.
Kyle Goon of the Southern California News Group has the scoop on Davis' MRI getting pushed to Monday, when the Lakers are also scheduled to take on the Golden State Warriors at Staples Center.
Because of the flight delay last night that kept the Lakers from getting home until early this morning, Anthony Davis' MRI on his sprained thumb has been pushed back to Monday, according to the Lakers.
NBA postpones Nets-Lakers media sessions in Shanghai
The NBA has postponed Wednesday's scheduled media sessions in Shanghai for the Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers, and it remains unclear if the teams will play in China this week as scheduled. The teams were practicing in Shanghai on Wednesday, where at least two other NBA events in advance of the start of the China games were called off as part of the ongoing rift that started after Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey posted a tweet last week that showed support for anti-government protesters in Hong Kong."Given the fluidity of the situation, today's media availability has been postponed," the league said.

This would also presumably mean that further updates on Kyle Kuzma and Talen Horton-Tucker, who have both been limited in the preseason. However, Davis is obviously more important than either of those players when it comes to the long-term outlook for the Lakers.
Since the Lakers need to wait until tomorrow, it seems highly unlikely that Davis suits up tomorrow. Considering they had to push Davis' exam, the Lakers will probably also be conservative with the workload for LeBron James as well.
