Happened in my match today and I realized I wasn't sure if there a "right" way to do it. Thanks.
Not sure your question is addressed specifically, but the timeout shouldn't end until the teams are on the court and in position and ready to play, not necessarily when they take the court. So hopefully the LJ, if walking quickly enough, can get into position while the team is getting ready to play. In theory.

In good practice, it would probably be best waiting on the LJ2 to get into position, or pretty close, before calling for the horn. Then once the horn hits, the LJ2 should be in position and the R2 can give the court back.
