Lakers Injury Update: Xavier Henry Expected To Miss Four More Weeks

As if Steve Nash and Steve Blake suffering injuries in the loss to the Utah Jazz wasn’t bad enough, the Los Angeles Lakers received more bad news on Wednesday.

According to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters, Xavier Henry will miss another four weeks with his knee injury:

Henry suffered the knee injury back on Dec. 29 in the loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. The injury was non-contact making many believe he’d be out for a considerable amount of time if not the rest of the season.

Initially, Henry was expected to miss seven to 10 days before being re-evaluated. Unfortunately, the injury appears to be more serious than first thought and it may end up being severe enough to keep him out the rest of the year.

Along with Henry still on the shelf, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Nick Young and Jodie Meeks are also injured.

Needless to say, the injuries continue to rip this team apart this season. There’s no telling if this team will be able to stay healthy enough to compete moving forward. A high draft pick in the 2014 NBA Draft is inevitably on the horizon.
