The Los Angeles Lakers have kind of been train wrecks for most of the season. They've had a lot of injuries this year. Dwight Howard, Antawn Jamison, Earl Clark, Steve Nash, Pau Gasol, and Jordan Hill all missed a ton of games this year. Metta World Peace has missed only 1 game this year, but looks to miss at least 6 more weeks now. Check out the story from our SB Nation Lakers blog Silver Screen & Roll here.
LA has a 1 game lead over the Utah Jazz and Dallas Mavericks. Does this new injury (which kind of wrecks their defensive rotations) open the door a bit for our Jazz? Or does Kobe Bryant just dig a little deeper and keep the Lakers in the Top 8?
