Antawn Jamison Says Wrist Feels Like it’s About to Fall Off

by April 11, 2013

After aggravating his sprained right wrist on an awkward fall last night, Antawn Jamison discussed the pain in the joint, but vows to keep playing. Per the LA Daily News: “I feel like it’s about to fall off,’ Jamison said after providing a quiet five points on 2 of 5 shooting in 15 minutes. By spending the Lakers’ day off Thursday receiving rest and treatment, Jamison vowed he will “be ready” when the Lakers play Friday against the Golden State Warriors at Staples Center. Jamison aggravated the wrist after he took a fall during a miffed fast-break attempt as the Lakers trailed 88-86 with 39 seconds remaining. It took a few moments for Jamison to stand up before he started favoring his wrist. Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni took Jamison out with 33 seconds left and didn’t appear at all in the fourth quarter. […] ‘We realize the sense of urgency, whether you’re hurt, whether you’re tired, it’s all mental now,’ Jamison said. ‘You just have to put that behind you. Just come together and represent this organization the way it should be. We realize that’s what we have to do. We want to continue to play to be playing after Wednesday. In order for that to happen, we have to win the last three games.'”
