Lakers News: Xavier Henry Set To Miss 7-10 Days With Bone Bruise

The injuries continue to pile up for the Los Angeles Lakers after newcomer Xavier Henry went down with a knee injury in Sunday night’s loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. At the time, the non-contact injury appeared to potentially be serious, but after an MRI this afternoon, results showed a bone bruise and an abnormality of the lateral meniscus. According to the Lakers press release, the former lottery pick will be re-evaluated in 7-10 days. Thus, the Lakers will be without Henry for at least a week.

Losing Henry to a severe knee injury would have been devastating for this team. As if Kobe Bryant, Steve Blake and Steve Nash out with injuries wasn’t bad enough, the loss of Henry for an extended amount of time might’ve seriously derailed this team’s chance of competing against even the weakest teams in the NBA night in and night out.

Along with Henry dealing with the knee injury, Pau Gasol is still battling an upper respiratory infection while Jordan Farmar deals with hamstring tightness.Marshall was signed from the D-League back on Dec. 20 following the announcement that Bryant would miss six weeks with the knee fracture.
