Lakers News: Steve Blake Set To Miss 6 Weeks With Elbow Injury


The Los Angeles Lakers suffered a major blow to the backcourt on Thursday learning that starting point guard Steve Blake will miss at least six weeks due to an elbow injury, according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters via Twitter:

With the Lakers already extremely thin at the point guard position, losing Blake for at least six weeks is potentially devastating to this team. Along with Blake, the Lakers are still without Steve Nash and Jordan Farmar, and will be scrambling for options with the team embarking on a four-game road trip.

As a result of Blake’s injury, the Lakers will have to bring in another player in free agency or play multiple players out of position. Kobe Bryant might help shoulder the load as the team’s point guard until the return of Farmar, but Xavier Henry, Jodie Meeks and Nick Young may also see time bringing the ball up the floor.
