Lakers guard Henry out another week with knee injury


Posted Dec 30, 2013 7:50 PM

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) -- Los Angeles Lakers guard Xavier Henry will be out for at least a week after bruising his right knee during a loss to Philadelphia on Sunday night.

The Lakers announced the results of Henry's MRI exam on Monday.

Henry has a bone bruise and an "abnormality" in his lateral meniscus, according to team doctor Steve Lombardo. He will be re-evaluated in 7-10 days.

Henry has been a consistent contributor in his first season with the Lakers, averaging 10.4 points and 2.8 rebounds. He has provided scoring off the bench, and he filled in at point guard while Los Angeles' top three point guards and Kobe Bryant all were sidelined by injuries recently.

Bryant, Steve Nash and Steve Blake are all still sidelined for the near future, but Jordan Farmar is back.
