Luke Walton Out Indefinitely

The Lakers may have lost their ninth man for the remainder of the Playoffs: “Lakers forward Luke Walton will miss tonight’s Game 5 playoff game against the Utah Jazz and is out indefinitely because of a partially torn deltoid ligament in his left ankle. Walton was injured Saturday in Game 4 against the Jazz. He will be reevaluated again in a week.”

    all right dont care…Hey, did anyone hear about the mistake on the rookie ballot. Someone confused brook lopez with robil lopez and he got a vote. That must be the worst rookie ever to get a vote.

    In an effort to be fair, LeBron was seen kicking Wally repeatedly in the shin at practice today.

    still, a decent player to have on your bench, can dish the ball too. I hate to see injuries happen to any player.

    Damn Coach Master, that’s harsh.

    same people that said kobe’s team is more stacked than lebrons. besides gasol,kobe, every other laker is extremely inconsistant.

  • truthteller

    Just because they inconsistent doesn’t mean that they’re not stacked. When all the Laker players decide to play they are better than the Cavs! Easy!

    Now he can spend more time with his stalker.

    He’s a great shooter off the bench. The trouble is that the bench isn’t located on the court.

    Don, it basically was a mis-communication. Our fault.

    I can’t wait for Lakers fans to use this as their excuse when they lose to the Cavaliers. “WUTEVAH WE WERENT EVEN AT FULL STRENTH WALTON WAS OUT WE WERE MNISSING ALL OUR BBALL IQ!!!!”

    Walton, not much – this team is still stacked. Now Morrison might get some time….

  • KoBynum716

    Walton is taking some time off to spend time with his stalker
