Moderately good news, but it’s sad to hear Ratliff will be missing time.
Lakers.com: L.A. got good news relating to Odom, as the MRI on a sore right foot came back negative. The MRI did confirm what Phil Jackson had previously described as a “bone bruise,” but the lanky lefty can play on it and will stay in the starting lineup against Milwaukee.
Blake is also expected to play in Wisconsin, as he was feeling better and did make the trip with the team.
The news is not so good in Ratliff’s case, however, as the 37-year-old center will have arthroscopic surgery on Tuesday morning in hopes of discerning the problem with his sore left knee.
