It seems Steve Blake is out due to the Chicken Pox as reported:

The team announced later Tuesday afternoon that Blake has chicken pox and would not play Tuesday; beyond that, he is out indefinitely.

The Lakers have two games left in the regular season. Tuesday night against the Spurs, and Wednesday vs. the Kings.

In 79 games this season, Blake is averaging 20 minutes per game. Blake’s averages 4 points, 2.2 assist, and shoots 38% from three point range per game.

UPDATE: According to Mike Bresnahan, from the LA times, there is a scary thought. Kobe Bryant, Andrew Bynum, and Ron Artest have not had the chicken pox. So Blake will need to stay away from those three to ensure the Lakers don’t lose one of them during the first round of the playoffs.

    Yo It ain’t like He helping the Team with his Brick shots he putting Up.

    I heard they called up Trey Johnson so maybe this could be better for us.

    Waits for that bigot LakerMarc to come and be the Bitch his parents really wanted.

    • LakerMarc

      • LakerMarc

        Oh and Trey Johnson is a great if thats true.

  • GreenPuke

    This Hurts Big time Not only does he distribute the Ball for us and give good passes to the bigs but he can hit the 3 I only hope he can be back intime for the post season we need him esp to take over fish

    Chicken pox? What are you five STEVE? Lol JK. This sucks so bad. Hopefully he doesn’t pass that on to any of our players. But with all that said, this is some f ucked news……. Please get well soon STEVE BLAKE. For any of you dumb, ignorant f ucks that say that STEVE was no help, that obviously shows you don’t watch LAKER basketball.

    • LakerMarc

      he has had lots of great moments. What about Shannon? I’m more disappointed in him because we really have seen great things from him and for him to turn to crap like this……he needs to go…..dont go racial on me, Riley…chip on the shoulder doesn’t go over well with me, loser!!

      • No Time To Panic

        Shannon is garbage. Physically gifted but not very bright.

  • NoDefense

    Lakers chose Shannon who can only dunk over, Sasha .Sasha played d and hit more shots than Shanon.
    This guy is a bust he was out of the N B A for a year even d league . He sucks

    Blake has not shot the ball near as well as I thought he would. But in his last game he was 3 of 3 from 3 point land, I was hoping he had found his groove again. He has providied solid defense and good ball-handling, he will be missed. Hopefully, they can get him back if they advance

    Chicken Pox can be cleared up in a few days with the right medication. This is 2011! C’mon Steve Blake we need you!
