Don’t worry too much! Its not THAT bad.

OC Register: Sasha Vujacic sprained his left ankle during the Tuesday night scrimmage. It was diagnosed as a moderate sprain, but Vujacic suggested he could be back in action in a few days.

Vujacic ran into DJ Mbenga during a baseline drive when Mbenga tried to take a charge. Vujacic said it’s an area on the outside of his ankle that is causing sharp pain.

“I was going to the basket,” Vujacic said. “Hard to believe, but I was going to the basket.”

Vujacic noted that he should be able to do more of that now that he’s “210″ — and to be completely honest with you, I initially thought he said he was “too tan.”

It’s no coincidence that a moment later when Lamar Odom was joking with Vujacic about getting hurt, Vujacic asked Odom to tell reporters how Vujacic got hurt.

“Tanning?” Odom deadpanned.

    I’m Sasha’s biggest fan, but does anyone else get a coronary any time he takes more than 3 dribbles?

    Stay behind the three-point line Machine, even if you are ‘too tan’

  • BruinLaker

    he doesn’t need the ankle…he’ll just camp & shoot, camp & shoot

  • Geloman

    Machine! You said you wanted to be the best shooter in the league. What the hell you doing driving baseline. Leave that to the guy who does it best, #24.

    The only lines you should be focusing on are the 3pt line and FT line. That’s it!
