Backup guard Sasha Vujacic joined the growing list of the Lakers' injured players Monday.

Vujacic suffered back spasms late in the Lakers' victory Sunday over the Miami Heat and did not join the team for its two-game trip to Texas.

The Lakers hope his condition improves and he can play against either the Houston Rockets tonight or the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday. Vujacic left the practice facility with an electronic stimulator strapped to his back and a smile on his face.

"Right now, I feel like I'm 90 years old, but (today) I'm going to feel like I'm 24 again," he joked as he shuffled from the building in a low crouch less than 24 hours after scoring 10 points and grabbing four rebounds in 19 minutes against Miami.


He might (play against Houston or San Antonio)," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. "Backs are kind of sporadic. Sasha has had this before, so he knows how to work through it. Right now, this road trip would be tough for him."

Just don't understand why LA has a fifth guard (Yue) who can't play and two centers they never use (Mihm and Mbenga) and an open roster spot and yet they don't have an extra guard thru this time and Derek is playing far too many minutes. When Farmar went down I wish they had added a guard. If I had to and can't get Pargo, I would offer Bucks Mihm and a second round pick for Lue. Don't know if they would do it and maybe Mitch has, but they need a better option at G than Sun right now. He may be really good in the future,, who knows but he isn't ready right now.

They can sign me at PG, I'm 5'8 140 lbs. I'm a great passer, good shooter, smart(defensively and offensively), and I wouldn't mind getting payed $100 a year. Just the experience would make me [expletive] my pants.

I'm just throwing it out there.

There's been a couple times where I've worn my Vujacic jersey and I've had girls whistling or people come up to me and say "Woah, you look just like him.". It's funny. It really is cause I didn't have to try too hard to look like him, it was all natural. Now, if I could just work on that accent....

oh geese...

sasha is still doing his signing on saturday... so hopefully that means hes feeling a lot better. im gonna be so upset if he isnt playing tonight.

strained groins can be REALLY painful.

The Lakers finally received some good news on the injury front after Friday’s shootaround.

Both Luke Walton and Sasha Vujacic are listed as “probable” after Vujacic missed L.A.’s two-game Texas trip with back spasms and Walton the last seven games with his injured foot.

Walton and Vujacic participated in shootaround Monday and appeared to be moving well, though there’s always the chance that either injury could flare up prior to the 7:30 p.m. tip.

In other news, Derek Fisher’s groin strain does not appear to be an issue, and he is expected to start. That leaves Jordan Farmar as the only player on the roster that will definitely not play.
