mods feel free to move this into the other thread if neccessary:

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Tests showed Lamar Odom's right knee injury is not serious, and the Los Angeles Lakers forward is day to day.

Odom, injured late in the second quarter of Tuesday night's 116-105 loss to New Orleans, was examined by team physician Dr. Steve Lombardo on Wednesday. An MRI revealed a bone bruise in the knee.

Odom did not travel for Wednesday night's game at Golden State, but could return as early as Friday when the Lakers play host to Indiana.

The 29-year-old forward scored 12 points in 13 minutes before being injured Tuesday. He is averaging 8.8 points, 6.1 rebounds and 26.2 minutes per game.

Good. Yesterday's game showed how valuable he is to this team. We don't need him for GS, so it's good that he'll have time to rest.

day to day on lakers terms means out for 6 months.

broken is the promise, betrayal

Good news. We can get justifiably frustrated with Lamar and Luke; but, having both of them out at the same time is not what this team needs.

The word is that Stephen Jackson probably won't play with a hammy tonight, so we're even.

He also wasn't there when we blew the lead. He knows how to defend West and did a decent job on him while he was out there.

dont blame phil, he rested kobe two nba minutes, so about 5 minutes and made sure he had enough legs to go, kobe had already start to miss a couple of shots, but LO's loss was costly, he guards D. west the best on out team, but can anyone give a very good Hornets team credit. Thats a respectable tream to lose to especially considering that we beat them twice at home prior to this game
Again - this team, as currently constructed won't make it out of the second round of the playoffs, let alone the West or win the Finals.---fido on 2011 Lakers

i had a bruise knee in football...played through it but it healed where it barely hurt any after 3 days fully healed about 5 so odom will be back very soon if he just rests ice etc.
Im still a Trevor Ariza Fan, Thanks For The Championship.

maybe Lamar should wait to come back until their Texas trip on Tuesday, which is a back to back against the

Rockets and the Spurs.

If that didn't translate into a lead before, what makes you think it would have then?

And LO hasn't shown the ability to turn it on in pressure situations. I'm not seeing any corollaries.


Truth?


NOH made the similar runs in the first and second games. Difference? We were up by so much that the run came up short.

This time? They weren't down much which allowed them to push it past our "hold-on" threshold...not LO's absence or presence.
