Nash - Old and injury prone
Blake - Old and injury prone
Kobe - Old and coming off major injury
Xavier - Had right knee problems in 2011 that sidelined him a couple of games, another right knee injury that took him out for the season in 2011. Has had right ankle injuries as well. Previous history of injury.
Farmar - Hamstring injuries happen. He had calf problems from the start of training camp. Not used to the NBA grind.

Take a guy like Meeks for example. Only injury history showing up is his sprained ankle last playoffs. He plays the most minutes.

Wesley Johnson next example. No injury history, I don't see him getting hurt (knock on wood) in MDA's offense.

People with an injury history, tend to repeat the trend. Crazy concept.

Questioning our medical staff was just that, wondering out loud. It seems guys either come back too soon and re-injure the same body parts, or they're out wayyyy longer than first diagnosed, makes me wonder if out staff isn't quite as on top of things as some other staffs. Farmar said his hamstring didn't feel right yet he played a lot of minutes. We've also seen players like Pau and Drew go get second opinions from outside sources. Our medical staff may be fine, just makes me wonder is all.

So if Meeks plays backup pg with this team now when Marshall sits or even starts there and goes down?

D'AndDummy is an idiot when it comes to managing minutes - in addition to other categories.
Team doctors have an inherent conflict of interest.

You would have to be dumb to trust team doctors and dumber to trust Dantoni managing guys minutes, least that's what I took form the comment.

Kobe went to Colorado in 03 because he didn't trust team doctors with his knee and shoulder, Bynum went to ny, odom went to his own doctor for the second labrum surgery, fisher hired an outside surgeon after LAs team doctor botched the first foot surgery and didn't put in a screw, and oh yeah KARL MALONE.

Lakers need better doctors and they need a better coach who actually sticks to minute plans he goes and tells the media he's been told to use

He's being forced into a role and an amount of playing time that is unusual for him. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets hurt in some form.

Blaming the medical staff and the coach IMO is a copout. This team as currently constructed, is just not a good team on top of the freak injuries we've been having. On any other team, our players would be coming off of the bench or the 10-12th player on a roster.

Exactly.. That quote in Karacha's sig really sums it up.. We're playing a bunch of minimum contracts as our main rotation guys.. The fact that we were hovering around .500 before the injuries started was a miracle.

When he's averaging 20 minutes for his career and he's playing 35 minutes a game so far in December, if he gets an increase in minutes with all the injuries and plays out of position, NO, I'm not going to blame the coach.

Do you blame Phil for Bynum, Mihm, Kwame all getting hurt in his time here? His constant post centered offense really put the burden on them. If Phil never coached, Bynum would still be healthy.

I can't believe he might be hurt again, he was playing so well. If he can't go one game without blowing out a hamstring or calf he's not going to be here next season. We need to sign players, not bodies.

We had like 6 or 7 players by then, it was pretty much out of necessity, even I can let 'Antoni slide on that one.

It amazes me how some people are soo blinded that they can't see even this basic thing.. We had 8 players tonight. 1 got injured, 2 in foul trouble (both fouled out) and then Jordy got hurt. How would you like the coaching staff to manage his playing time?
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.
