Xavier Henry

This morning on ESPN LA 710 Radio, head coach Mike D’Antoni spent some time answering questions about the Los Angeles Lakers season. While he was in a joking mood at practice yesterday, D’Antoni discussed numerous topics including an injury update on all of his players.

With the Lakers’ backcourt was depleted, D’Antoni hopes that Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash will return after the road trip against the Indiana Pacers on January 28. While Xavier Henry is set to get reevaluated on Monday, D’Antoni says he could either play on the road trip or be out for the rest of the season:

Against the Philadelphia 76ers on December 30, it appeared that Henry may have suffered a season-ending injury as there was no contact on the play. After an MRI, the Lakers guard was very fortunate as he only suffered a bone bruise in his right knee.

Henry was supposed to be evaluated yesterday, but no specific reason was given for it being pushed back. With the reevaluation now set for Monday, the Lakers can only hope that Henry won’t be out for the entire season. In his first real opportunity in the NBA, Henry has played extremely well. The four-year guard out of Kansas is averaging 10.1 points and was the Lakers’ backup point guard before he went down.

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I really hope it isn’t as serious as MDA is making out to be.

    • Jim213

      Wish X the best (health#1) but it’s possible he may not return next season if the injury proves serious given his 1 yr. contract while being an UFA.IMO

    • hookedonnews

      I think he was joking about X. He had said earlier that he would probably be out 2 years because he had been playing the point.

    #PrayForXavier

  • Oh Henry

    Damn it we finally get a big time prospect that is only 22 years old and then this $hit happens damn it i am pissed off.SMH at the horrible luck the Lakers have had with inuries.Screw it this meant to be.Bad luck curse on the Lakers.OMG!

  • Tony

    The Basketball Gods are really trying to hammer home a message to the Lakers. Just keep on losing be it directly/indirectly tanking, free up as much space possible, and head into the offseason with one of the deepest draft classes in history and a parade of stars hitting free agency over the next 2-3 seasons.

    I fell off my chair reading MDA thought Nash was going to come back. Yeah he can come back and mop the sweat off the floor and fetch towels for Kendall Marshall. Yeah I think he can make a comeback.

    • hookedonnews

      There’s no question he’s coming back. The question is how long he’ll be able to play once he does. With all due respect to Kendall Marshall, he’s no Steve Nash and never will be. You’d better hope Nash can come back and play. I’m glad Marshall has played as well as he has, but let’s not get carried away.

    sad, so sad, all these years of hatred towards LAL accumulated negative energy and now it’s getting our boys

  • Lakers Fan

    This isn’t anything new. A player having a negative injury report is something I’ve grown used to hearing when it comes to the Lakers. Although D’Antoni might be exaggerating, this could very well be a possibility. Oh well. This has become a norm for the Lakers, although I hope it’s not true. Xavier was really playing well, and I hate that this has happened to him.

  • Joseph Apohen

    i don’t understand why “X” maybe out for the remainder of the season. I did not think the injury was that serious. If so it is unfortunate for “X”. I wish him the best and I hope the FO would take this into account. He seems to have a bright future, one the Lakers could use.

  • Al Haldie

    Do you really get PAID for this crap–i do believe every one already new that….your running a few weeks behind….

  • hookedonnews

    Great interview. For anyone who wants to know why Kaman wasn’t playing, just listen to the interview. So many times these questions are easily answered if you just listen to what D’Antoni is saying. It seems that few people ever do that. Whether you agree or not, at least you know the reasons for it. The defensive issues are also addressed.

    Let them all miss this season – Mr. 24, St.Nash, St.Blake, X.Henry and whoever else is in the lazzaret.It is better for the team for the summer draft. We have to get a lottery pic. We have no right to miss this opportunity, which comes ones in 25 years maybe.Go Lakers.
