Lakers point guard Steve Blake out at least six weeks with elbow injury

first_imgSteve Blake’s face told a story Thursday. An unhappy one.Blake, the Lakers’ point guard, had an MRI on his right elbow and he was diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament. He will miss at least the next six weeks.“I’ve had better days; disappointed,” said Blake, who was averaging 9.8 points and 7.7 assists while starting all 21 games. “It’s not something I wanted to go through right now. But crazy things happen and you’ve just gotta try and stay positive. It’s a long season and I’ll eventually get back and try to finish strong.”Although a news release sent out by the team states Blake injured the elbow Nov. 24 against Sacramento at Staples Center, Blake said the injury occurred two days later at Washington while he was guarding John Wall of the Wizards. This means that all three of the Lakers’ point guards — including Steve Nash and Jordan Farmar — are out with injuries. When the Lakers (10-11) open a four-game road trip tonight in Oklahoma City, Bryant will play the point.Coach Mike D’Antoni can hardly believe that Blake played this long with the injury. If he injured it Nov. 26 at Washington, that means he played six more games with it.“It’s really a testament to his courage and toughness that he played about four or five games with a torn ligament in his shooting elbow,” D’Antoni said. “He practiced left-handed and then he would play right-handed.”Bryant also is amazed.“How tough is Steve Blake?” Bryant said. “He played with this since D.C. He played phenomenally well with it. It’s incredible.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img “It happened at the end of the Wizards game, on the first game of that road trip; I’ve been dealing with it for a little while,” Blake said. “I went for a steal and kind of jammed my arm up into his body. I’m pretty sure that’s when I tore it.”Blake said there is no surgery planned for what typically is an injury suffered by baseball players.“I guess if I was a baseball player, I probably would have surgery, but we’re thinking with time — and I’ll have a PRP injection — we think that will be sufficient enough,” he said. “We’re thinking about six weeks. God willing, maybe before, but it’s one of those things you just don’t really know until you get there.”Blake said he was “in shock” about the injury, and is particularly bummed out about not being able to be part of the ongoing saga that is the return of Kobe Bryant, who has been back for the past two games after rehabilitating a surgically repaired torn Achilles tendon.“It is unfortunate,” Blake said. “We just got Kobe back, so I was looking forward to trying to get us all on the court and figuring things out.”last_img read more
