According to Mike Trudell, Lakers guard Xavier Henry will be out at least one more week with a bone bruise/knee strain in his right knee:

“Xavier Henry (knee strain) is out at least 1 more week, at which point he’ll be re-evaluated. That puts him out at least 4 more games.”

Henry was injured against the Philadelphia 76ers on December 31st.  On the season, he is averaging 10.1 points per game and was definitely a bright spot for the Lakers before going down with the injury. 

He’ll be re-evaluated in Chicago or Miami on the upcoming Grammy road trip.
