Matt Barnes Sidelined by Torn Knee Cartilage

The Lakers may very well still repeat as champs, but it’s not going to be easy. As the LA Times reports: “Reserve forward Matt Barnes will miss several weeks because of torn cartilage in his right knee, meaning Kobe Bryant will probably log more minutes as the Lakers absorb yet another knee injury. An MRI exam Saturday confirmed that Barnes sustained a torn lateral meniscus, though the Lakers declined to release a timetable for his return until after he has surgery in the next few days.”

    The Spurs,Heat,and Celtics are all winning without ease with Dallas and The Lakers all struggling now. Matt Barnes had to get injured now with a diffucult schedule coming up for LA. For Kobe this means he can shoot 4 or 5 times more with Barnes out.
