Here are some small updates on some injuries the Lakers have. Add Ron, Odom, Sasha and Kobe to new-injuries list; the bug has hit the team, unfortunately, officially.

Thanks to the tweets of Kevin Ding

  • Phil thinks Kobe will play in DAL tomorrow. About Pau playing: “It’s up to him.”
  • Phil says Artest’s sprained right index finger makes him questionable for tomorrow in DAL.
  • Artest shot 3 for 12 and hobbled off court just now favoring right foot (plantar fasciitis).
  • Trainer Gary Vitti hasn’t been on Lakers bench, presumably back in locker room dealing with Kobe’s back.
  • Besides Kobe’s right index finger, Odom is still wearing tape over his sprained right index and middle fingers.
  • Sasha (strained rt hamstring)
  • KOBE THA MVP 10′

    Fuck this injury hurts tha most. “Sasha (strained rt hamstring)”. Now it will be harder to trade him thanbefore let alone were losing 5 million for nothing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Phil thinks Kobe will play in DAL tomorrow. About Pau playing: “It’s up to him.”
    “ITS UP TO HIM” SHOULDN’T HE HELP OUT THE TEAM WHEN HE KNOWS THAT WE REALLY NEED HIM, HES A BEING A PUSSY, AND KOBE IS PLAYING, I THINK KOBE NEEDS REAST, PAU NEEDS TO FUCKING PLAY, I HATE HIM FOR BEING A LITTLE BABY. He says hes gonna play vs clipps why the clipps, why not just sit that game out too, u know wat just sit the whole fucking month out and maybe come back when were done the season. Why veen to bother Pau. Fucking im tired of him. I can tell Phill jackson is probably getting pissed off of pau sitting out soo much, cause he was when he sat out 11 games.

    • KOBE THA MVP 10′

      Only if we had Bosh, he’ll play through anything

    Let’s hope this wave of injuries will be over soon.

    sasha rt hamstring, i think adam sat out today because of sore throat, thats why walton played. he actually contibuted. I think we should try to rest all the guys, ARTEST,KOBE,ODOM, and throw Pau out there cause he dont need more rest. and see how badly the team chokes without those guys. And Kobe needs rest.

    It seems like every time one player is getting ready to return from injury, another player gets injured. We’re fortunate that these aren’t long term injuries, but nagging injuries, nonetheless.

    Oh well, life goes on, stuff happens. It happened to Celtics last year, but thankfully, theres came at the wrong time and was long term, these arent. Good thing these injuries come now rather than the playoffs, although regular season wins dont mean much, having HCA through the playoffs would be nice, Lakers had a near scare with Rockets last season.

    im not going to say that im glad we have all these injuries. But for the most part i would rather, have these injuries right now, because for the most part i want are guys healthy towards the playoffs. In addition, it would be better suited if we had short term injuries, rather than long term!!!
    ps im not wishing for the team to have injuries, but i would rather have 100% healthy laker squad come april.!!!!
