INJURY UPDATE: Lakers guard Xavier Henry, who injured his left wrist in last night’s game against the Washington Wizards, had an MRI on the wrist today. Results of the MRI showed that Henry has a torn ligament in the wrist. He will be examined by a hand specialist on Monday and an estimate on his return will be given at that time.

We lack starters.
Farmar / Marshall / Nash
Kobe / Bazemore / Henry
____ / Young / Harris
____ / Hill / Kelly
____ / ____ / Sacre
The FO doesn't see it that way though. It's locking down a star player first, then getting a bench. Which just prolongs the rebuild.

It isn't a waste from a salary standpoint, not what I meant.. What I mean is both X & Baze deserve to be in a situation where they get to see the floor.. & if we add a real starting SF & keep Young, this isn't that situation. 1 or both of them will only see the floor in garbage time. I think the real hurdle would be convincing them to stay on in a 3rd string role when both are capable backups.
