Xavier HenryInitially, newcomer Xavier Henry of the Los Angeles Lakers was set to be reevaluated on Jan. 9 for a bone bruise suffered on Dec. 29 against the Philadelphia 76ers. Now, things have changed for the third-year pro as his reevaluation won’t happen until next week according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:


Injuries have taken a serious toll on the Lakers this season with backcourt players going down on a nightly basis. Henry helped shoulder the load at the point guard position after Kobe Bryant injured his knee, but went down shortly after taking over as the starter.

The point guard position has been a revolving door for the Lakers this season with few healthy players on the roster capable of playing the position. Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Jordan Farmar are all currently dealing with injuries that could keep them out at least another month while Bryant is expected to be back at the end of January or sometime in February.

Fortunately, the Lakers were able to bring in Kendall Marshall from the D-League. Marshall wasn’t expected to make much of an impact, but has been forced into the lineup with Farmar suffering another hamstring injury recently.

As for Henry, the former lottery pick has made an impression in his short time in Los Angeles. Henry has played in 31 games this season averaging 10.1 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game.

    Best if he returns at full health though it hurts the team given their depletion at the 1 (X temp).

    Yeap why rush it if he is needing more time to heal up?Terrence Williams is a nice looking prospect playing on the D-Fenders maybe if Xavier can’t return we can sign Terrence Williams to a 10 day contract and give him some minutes to see if he is the Point Forward we need or not.T-Will is 26 years old been around.But 15 spots are taken on the Lakers roster would need to trade or waive players to clear a spot.Frankly Shawne Williams might as well be waived tbh.Ryan Kelly can go.
