We learned some good and bad news at Lakers practice on Monday:

The bad: Sasha Vujacic is suffering from back spasms after tweaking his back late in Sunday’s win over Miami. He will not make the trip to Houston with the team, but it’s the team’s hope that Vujacic will be able to make a separate flight either Tuesday or Wednesday prior to the team’s games against Houston and San Antonio, respectively.

The good: Lamar Odom played a game of 3-on-3 at full speed following Monday’s team workout. Odom, who looked to be moving quite well, hit several jumpers and even exploded for a left-handed dunk. In talking to reporters afterwards (video below), Odom said that he’s going to see how the knee feels on Tuesday at Houston, and will try to play if the pain level is tolerable. Since he can’t make his bone bruise any worse by playing, it’s mostly about pain management, and Odom’s wide variety of skills allows him to compensate better from movement or pain restrictions than many players. He remains listed at day-to-day, but recognizes that a team missing both Jordan Farmar and potentially Vujacic in the backcourt needs his ball-handling skills.

sasha....dont want to get traded so fakes injuries like luke......shame on him.

I see faith in your eyes
never you hear the discouraging lies
broken is the promise, betrayal
the healing hand held back by deepened nail
follow the god that failed

Fine.

Get all these little nagging injuries out of the way before the All-Star break.

Better now then closer to the playoffs.
