Lakers forward Antawn Jamison is set to undergo wrist surgery at 7 a.m. Tuesday.
The Lakers' veteran forward sustained an injury on March 22 in a loss to the Washington Wizards. An MRI revealed ligament damage, but Jamison played through the discomfort to help the team finish the season.
Injuries hindered the Lakers all year -- especially in the playoffs as they were swept by the San Antonio Spurs, with Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Steve Blake, Jodie Meeks and Metta World Peace all missing time.
Despite the Lakers' efforts to contact him, Jamison skipped his exit interview with the team on Monday, according to a team spokesman.
After coming to the Lakers on a one-year, veterans minimum contract ($1.35 million), Jamison is not expected back.
