LOL....

Not laughing at the injury, but just how bad of a signing this was. Randomly injury proned, underachieving PG FTL.

I still don't get why Delonte hasn't been given the call, we were interested in him during the summertime, let's rekindle the flame. :man1:

I'd take Delonte in a second over any other PG on our roster besides Nash...

Eh, he'll continue to get his millions to sit in street clothes, we'll be better off with Duhon. Blake has been terrible for multiple seasons now, I like Duhon more, makes the 1 or 2 threes he takes, doesn't do anything fancy, likable guy that just does his job.

DJO is putting up 21/6/6 in the D-League. Time to exhaust your options MDA, give this guy a shot.

There isn't much of a difference between Duhon and Blake, so I'm not worried about this at all. The worst part about this news is that we wont be able to trade him this season, but at least he'll be an expiring next season and we can get something decent in return.

Key word, "D-League". I think DJO [/i]could [/i] have some NBA game, but I don't have high hopes.

At this point it doesn't hurt. Morris is shooting 14%, 2 points 1.3 assists over the last week. Cant be worse than that

What are our options at PG?

DJO
West
Arenas
Baron Davis (he has been trolling Lakers games -- 3 minutes on the court and he would be injured too)


I guess we have to keep rolling Morris out there, and give DJO a shot. Also play meeks at PG for a few minutes.

^ I'd really like to get West, he would be a great backup behind Nash. He can defend either guard position well and he is a scorer.

Surgery? Really?

Man, it took that long to figure out that he needed surgery. I just don't get it.

Pretty easy to me to understand:

Blake and the Lakers thought he could heal and recover without needing surgery, but when it didn't heal after several weeks more test for taken and a specialist looked at it and recommended surgery. The Lakers has always just hoped it would heal on its own, unfortunately it didn't.

Im not saying it is... but talking to a specialist and taking more tests DEF IS! It's not the first time this ish happens with a Lakers player. Good thing Blake sucks but im starting to worry about the other Steve.

Guard Steve Blake will have laproscopic surgery Wednesday to repair a torn abdominal muscle, the team announced Monday. He is expected to miss a minimum of six to eight weeks, pushing his comeback to sometime in February.
“It’s a big concern for me,” Kobe Bryant said. “Steve and I have always played extremely well together. He’s a clutch shooter and a tough competitor. That’s one of the things I like about him, is his toughness.
“We’re going to miss him a lot. I’m not sure he’s going to be out, but it could be a while. … Hopefully he can keep his head in it and come back ready to go.”
Blake originally was diagnosed with an abdominal strain Nov. 12 and missed 10 games, but had returned to the court recently to work on free throw shooting. He sounded hopeful when asked last week about his recovery, saying that he thought the healing process was “going in the right direction.”
In seven games this season, he was averaging 5.1 points, 2.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.29 steals in 26 minutes of play.
With starting point guard Steve Nash still sidelined because of a fractured left leg and Blake out, the Lakers have started Darius Morris at the point. Coach Mike D’Antoni said Monday he might try Chris Duhon in the starting spot Tuesday against Houston.
“There’s a chance. We’ll see. We’ll talk about it tomorrow. That’s nothing against Darius. He’s learning. He’s got to get better. But I could (start Duhon against the Rockets.)



he just said blake was a clutch shooter :man10:

Lakers staff seems to take the same approach with Nash injury ... they passed on doing a MRI a week ago ( why ?) ... Nash said there was " minor" improvment and sounded like coming back in 10 to 15 was pipe dream ... tomorrow it' ll be a 5 weeks injury

it's a blow, but not a huge one, as duhon can fill in as the backup until blake's ready to go. the key is still nash. duhon and blake are sort of a push for me, but either one is a reasonable backup. morris seems to be regressing after showing some promise.
