"The doctor asked me to stand up and put pressure on the knee," MWP told reporters. "I did and told them I didn't feel any pain. I could have played right away."
Coach Mike D'Antoni said the Lakers will re-evaluate MWP after Tuesday's shootaround and make the decision prior to game time.
"Right now, I'd say he's got an 80 to 90 percent chance of playing," D'Antoni added.The status of banged-up point guard Steve Nash, however, is still doubtful for Tuesday.
Following Sunday's loss to the Clippers, the Lakers and Utah Jazz are chasing the Western Conference's final playoff spot.
World Peace is averaging 12.8 points and 5.1 rebounds per game this season.
