The Lakers are hoping to get some players back in uniform soon and the first to return is most likely to be Xavier Henry. Unfortunately for the Lakers, that return will not be for the next two nights as Henry has been ruled out after experiencing knee soreness after practicing yesterday:

Henry is set to be re-evaluated on Tuesday for the bone bruise he suffered in his right knee. He has not played since hurting the knee against the Philadelphia 76ers last month.

After tomorrow night’s game, the Lakers begin their annual Grammy road trip in Phoenix and Henry will start that trip on the bench as well:

The Lakers are extremely thin right now and any returns would be huge for the team. Henry has been one of the biggest surprises for the Lakers this season with his scoring ability and versatility. He also took on the brunt of the ballhandling responsibilities after the injuries to all of the Lakers point guards.

With the Lakers in a slump right now, Henry getting back on the floor could really help the team start turning things around. With a long road trip, and Pau Gasol possibly injured, the Lakers need all of the players they can get.
