LOS ANGELES — Mike D’Antoni postponed his debut on the Los Angeles Lakers’ bench for at least another game Sunday night, giving the coach a few more days to recover from recent knee replacement surgery.

D’Antoni tentatively planned to take over when the Lakers hosted Houston, exactly a week after the Lakers hired him to replace Mike Brown. Instead, Lakers trainer Gary Vitti and D’Antoni’s wife persuaded him to wait until he can move around a bit better on his new knee.
