Sasha Vujacic went down with an ankle injury in last night’s evening practice and is officially day-to-day, though judging by the way he was getting around the team’s practice facility in El Segundo this afternoon, the injury doesn’t appear to be serious.
“I just got done with my second treatment of the day. I’ll do another one later. So hopefully I can get back out there soon,” Vujacic said.
Vujacic was injured during a collision with teammate DJ Mbenga, who he said “was trying to take a charge” but “was totally moving.” Mbenga, who was within earshot of Vujacic’s conversation with reporters, had little sympathy. He just laughed, used his hand to dismiss Vujacic’s ribbing, and walked out the door.
A couple minutes later, Lamar Odom joined in.
A reporter asked Odom how Sasha got hurt, and Odom, ever-ready with a quick comeback (especially for Sasha), said, “Probably tanning or something.”
