Via the Orange County Register, Laker forward Lamar Odom will get an MRI on his right foot after suffering what Phil Jackson called a “bone bruise” in the Lakers’ 116-121 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Sunday Night.
Odom didn't exit the game early and played really well, contributing 22 points, 11 rebounds, and 4 assists in 42 minutes. Obviously it's only an MRI, but any time a player has one of those, there's always the chance something could be up. Something has to be enough of an issue to make the training staff see one as necessary.
And in news not important enough to warrant its own post or a mention in the headline, Theo Ratliff will also have an MRI on a sore left knee. I guess Monday is just MRI Day for the Lakers.
