Bumps and bruises

The Lakers went 3-0 on their trip to Milwaukee, Detroit and Minnesota and weren’t really threatened in any of the three games against subpar competition. They did not escape unscathed, however. Ron Artest has been suffering from a sore back. Pau Gasol sprained his ankle Friday. Shannon Brown got poked in the eye. Lamar Odom continues to play with a sprained left thumb that made it difficult to control the ball in his dominant hand. Lakers coach Phil Jackson gave the team a day off, calling off today’s scheduled practice.
