Lakers trainer Gary Vitti is going to need more than a room off the side of the locker room, he needs his own wing.
To add to the injuries expected to keep the top four Lakers out of a crucial Game 3 Friday night, Metta World Peace had his knee drained on Thursday. Teams try to keep this stuff secret (as if it provides some big advantage) but World Peace tweeted out the news himself complete with a photo. Because he’s World Peace.
A Baker’s cyst is a fluid filled cyst on the back of the knee that puts pressure on the joint, restricts motion and causes pain.
World Peace should move a lot more freely because — look at that photo, that is a whole lot of fluid.
The Lakers are going to need a lot of World Peace, plus a big game from Darius Morris on Tony Parker, to beat a Spurs team finding it’s groove while the Lakers are in the training room.
The Lakers are expected to be without Steve Nash, Steve Blake, Jodie Meeks and of course Kobe Bryant for Game 3. The Spurs lead 2-0. That pretty much sums up the Lakers situation.
