Hopefully it’s nothing too serious.
ESPN: Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom will undergo a MRI on Monday to examine his sore right foot.
“It’s been aching, especially in the morning,” Odom said. “I’ve played a lot of basketball. Hopefully it’s just wear and tear, hopefully, and there’s nothing wrong.”
Odom removed his sneaker and had his foot re-taped on the bench during the second half Sunday, but went back into the game.
Odom finished with 22 points and 11 rebounds in Sunday’s 121-116 loss to the Phoenix Suns. It was the fifth double-double in 10 games this season for Odom, who is averaging 15.1 points and 10.9 rebounds on 58.6 percent shooting from the field this year. The extra basketball Odom referred to was his gold medal run this summer with Team USA at the FIBA World Championship in Istanbul.
“I’ll get it checked out [Monday] and hopefully all I need is ice,” Odom said.
