Steve Blake to Sit 3-4 Weeks With Rib Injury

The Lakers were already pretty thin at point guard, and now with Steve Blake out for three-to-four weeks with a rib injury, they’re about as thin at that position as it gets. Via the L.A. Times: “Lakers reserve guard Steve Blake is expected to remain sidelined for three to four weeks because of  fractured cartilage that connects the rib to the sternum. Should that timetable hold up, Blake would miss between 11 and 17 games. He could return as early as Feb. 3 at Denver. The team indicated Blake suffered the injury Tuesday during a 99-83 victory over the Phoenix Suns, but Blake said Friday morning after a shoot-around he couldn’t recall a specific play that made him feel sore after the game. Blake aggravated the injury Wednesday during a 90-87 overtime victory at Utah after making an awkward twist late in the third quarter.”

    Basketball is now ruined for 3 to 4 weeks. We miss you blake! … By the way, what is juan dixon up to these days?

    People don’t realise how important he is to LA, he splits minutes with fish almost right down the middle and has a tenancy to bail out our second unit’s lackluster offence with big 3′s. And he makes pretty solid decisions with the ball which is import for a team which has struggled with TOs. Hope he can come back confident, cause he looked like a different player this year.

    Steve Blake is weak! So is Ron Artest. If they trade Blake for Jordan Farmar, and trade Artest for Ariza, that’s a guaranteed championship.

    @bc why would new jersey want blake? and la were the ones who didnt resign ariza just to sign artest at the same price. now la wants ariza back. I seriously doubt if new orleans would make a straight up trade with ariza and artest. not equal.
