Damn it. Damn it. DAMN IT!!!

L.A. Times: Ronny Turiaf has been slowed by a sore big toe on his right foot, an injury that keeps him from playing extended minutes, Coach Phil Jackson said.

Turiaf was initially injured when the toe was stepped on in Monday’s game against Denver. His toe was again stepped on in Wednesday’s game against San Antonio.

“Hopefully he can mend as we go through it and we don’t push him too hard during this period of time,” Jackson said. “But we’ll see where it goes. We may have to use him more minutes than I want to.”

Turiaf was not the first post player off the bench against San Antonio, and it cost the Lakers for a brief stretch.
