The motto of the last two seasons for the Lakers might just be “when it rains, it pours.” Add Xavier Henry to the list of injured Lakers to miss significant time. Henry injured his knee on a drive to the basket Sunday night and went in for an MRI early Monday afternoon. The MRI results revealed that Henry would be forced out of action for at least a week.
Henry, a surprise producer on this year’s Lakers squad, was filling in at the point guard role due to injuries to Steve Nash, Steve Blake, Jordan Farmar, and Kobe Bryant. With Henry out for the foreseeable future, Kendall Marshall will likely see increased minutes.
