L.A. Times: Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic did not travel with the team today because of back spasms, though he might join the team Tuesday for their game against Houston or Wednesday in San Antonio.

Vujacic’s back flared up toward the end of the Lakers’ victory Sunday over Miami.

Not all the injury news was bad for the Lakers.

Forward Lamar Odom took part in a half-court three-on-three Monday afternoon and might play Tuesday night against Houston if his right knee responds well to today’s activity.

Odom has missed three games because of a bone bruise on the knee.

    well…T-mac is out for Houston..and Artest might not play also..so it ain’t totally bad…but it doesn’t mean we should take them for granted because we havn’t been playing well.

    Softness breeds delicateness, and that transcends to fragileness;
    Unfortunately, this all goes together, and comes with the territory!
