Lakers News: Xavier Henry Ruled Out For Next Two Games

The Lakers are hoping to get some players back in uniform soon and the first to return is most likely to be Xavier Henry. Unfortunately for the Lakers, that return will not be for the next two nights as Henry has been ruled out after experiencing knee soreness after practicing yesterday:

Henry is set to be re-evaluated on Tuesday for the bone bruise he suffered in his right knee. He has not played since hurting the knee against the Philadelphia 76ers last month.

After tomorrow night’s game, the Lakers begin their annual Grammy road trip in Phoenix and Henry will start that trip on the bench as well:

The Lakers are extremely thin right now and any returns would be huge for the team. Henry has been one of the biggest surprises for the Lakers this season with his scoring ability and versatility. He also took on the brunt of the ballhandling responsibilities after the injuries to all of the Lakers point guards.

With the Lakers in a slump right now, Henry getting back on the floor could really help the team start turning things around. With a long road trip, and Pau Gasol possibly injured, the Lakers need all of the players they can get.

  • Oh Henry

    Yeah just take a month off and see how the knee feels this is way too serious of a body part to risk playing on with soreness.Just look at Andrew Bynum and Greg Oden and Brandon Roy,Derrick Rose,Amare knee problems are serious to prevent serious damage rest is the number 1 solution to make sure the knee heals.Sit out.

      I agree with you on taking pre-caution but for someone with short-term contract, Henry can’t afford to sit for a long time. With Kobe’s out, he needs to take the opportunity to prove his worth just like Kendall Marshall because once Kobe’s back, he won’t get that chance anymore.

  • Oh Henry

    Get on the court when feeling 100% healthy.He plays fearless driving to hoop.
