Sasha Vujacic Concussed by an Odom Elbow


Down goes Sasha!

Down goes Sasha!

The Machine is out indefinitely after suffering a concussion during practice Thursday. Lamar Odom inadvertently landed one of his bony switchblades just below Vujacic’s left eye, sending the Slovenian into slow motion.  

Sasha is set to be revaluated today but will not be allowed to participate in any hoops activities until he’s medically cleared.

Depending on the time frame, there is a chance the Lakers will be sans Sasha for Saturday’s clash with the Denver Nuggets. Sasha’s absence would create more minutes for the Laker guards and should give Shannon Brown even more time to shine as he looks to continue his impressive play this preseason.

Hopefully Odom’s accidental dome shot has jarred something loose and will help Sasha to rediscover the shooting stroke that earned him a $15-million contract.

    Kobe is not in his prime to be sure but you’re talking about trading maybe the greatest Laker of all-time, LakerNut.

    The man has earned the right to retire a Laker. Plus, no matter what you get in return it will never be equal value. That’s how it works when you deal superstars. Think Shaq all over again. After it was all said and done, the Lakers got Odom for Shaq.

    There is nothing to gain in trading KB24 plus there is still no reason to believe this team can’t win another title or two. You don’t want to break that up and pull a Jerry Krause.
