Update #4: From Lakers Basketblog…
Lakers forward Lamar Odom was examined today by team physician Dr. Steve Lombardo and MRI results show that Odom has a bone bruise in his right knee. Odom will not play in tonight’s game in Oakland against the Golden State Warriors, and his status beyond that is listed as day-to-day.
Update #3: Lamar had this to say about the injury this morning…
“I hyperextended it bad,” Odom said as he walked with a noticeable limp. “There’s some swelling. I’ll get an MRI (today) and we’ll see.”
Update #2: He tried to work out some of the “soreness” in the knee but felt he didn’t have much stability to do such.
He did not return to the game against the Hornets and will indeed undergo a MRI tomorrow for further results.
Hang in there Lamar, we’re pulling for you!
Update #1: Lamar Odom looked like he hyper extended his knee while chasing down Paul flying down the lane. It looked like he planted in an ackward way and he hobbled into the locker room. While there is no official report yet, we’ll update you as soon as we know.
Hopefully it won’t be anything to serious.
