The Lakers received a small bit of good news Monday, but it was naturally mixed with some bad news as well. The good news? Xavier Henry received the results of his MRI, which revealed his injury is very similar to the one suffered by Antawn Jamison last season. As you may recall, Jamison played throughout the season, and Henry will finish this season.
X. Henry saw Dr. Shin, who confirmed a tear of the scapholunate ligament in his wrist. Needs postseason surgery, but Henry can play w/it.

As for the bad news? Well Pau Gasol was diagnosed with vertigo, which kept him out of the second half against Orlando and required him to spend the night in the hospital. All tests were negative, but Gasol is doubtful for the team’s contest against the Knicks on Tuesday.

With just over a dozen games remaining, each game is extra important on a personal level to those left on the Lakers roster without contracts for next season. Of more importance, the Knicks coming to town gives the possibility
of one Phil Jackson returning, which I’m sure Lakers fans would be ecstatic about.
