INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) -
Cedric Ceballos ended his unexcused
absence and returned to the Los An-
geles Lakers yesterday, offering an
explanation but no details on why he
spent four days in Arizona without
notifying the team.
"I had some very personal and fam-
ily problems to deal with. I apolo-
gize," he said. "It just got to a point
where it was just a little too much for
me. I just needed time."
Ceballos remained suspended for
last night's game against Charlotte.
He will come off the suspended list
today and join the Lakers for a six-
game road trip beginning tomorrow
at Orlando.
Ceballos, noticeably subdued, did
not elaborate on the family matter,
nor did he explain why he failed to
telephone the team or why he went
water-skiing while dealing with the
family matter.
"There was no reason for that at
all," Ceballos said. "I should have let
the organization know what was go-
ing on and how I was."

He did not have a chance to talk
with his teammates before they took
the court against Charlotte, but he
said, "I think they will understand."
"He will learn you simply don't do
things like this. It's simply unaccept-
able," Lakers vice president Jerry
West said.
"It's nice to hear from him that this
was not a basketball matter."
Ceballos denied his AWOL jaunt
had anything to do with his reduced
playing time since Johnson came out
of retirement on Jan. 29. Johnson
started his second straight game yes-
terday in place of Ceballos.
"I've always been happy with my'
role," Ceballos said. "You bring a
Hall of Fame playerback, everybody's
going to adjust. Those adjustments
were made and they're fine with me."
Lakers coach Del Harris denied he
has any conflicts with Ceballos, who
described himself and Harris as being
"fairly close."
"We're not trying to be oppressive
or overwhelming or make it an I-told-
you-so thing," Harris said. "I don't

demand that every player behave as if
it's military school. I've given a lot of
leeway to him and others."
Family members accompanied
Ceballos, who is single, to Lake
Havasu, Ariz.
"It's unfortunate I had this problem
occur during the season, but you learn
and keep moving on," he said.
The Lakers' co-captain and leadin
scorer had been in Arizona since miss-
ing the team's flight to Seattle on
Wednesday. Team spokesperson John
Black said the Lakers would not dis-
close whether Ceballos will be fined
for the practices he missed.
"For me to go on, especially in my
life, I understand the fines and sus-
pension were just kind of a side track
of what I really wanted to focus or*
and that was trying to take care of a
family problem," Ceballos said. "It's
not completely done, but we're going
to keep striving to make it better and
keep going so it can never occur
again."
Ceballos missed two games for a
total loss of $54,756 in salary.
