by November 17, 2009

The pinched nerve in Luke’s back could actually end up sidelining him for longer than 6 weeks: “Luke Walton was diagnosed Monday with a pinched nerve in his back and is expected to miss a minimum of six weeks. The revelation marred the Lakers’ day of good news for All-Stars Kobe Bryant (groin) and Pau Gasol (hamstring). Walton was examined Monday by back specialist Robert Watkins, and the news continues a career filled with injuries for Walton.”
