Ebanks out 3 more weeks; Caracter sent to D-League

There was some significant news today about the Lakers’ rookie forwards. Devin Ebanks will be sidelined for another three weeks when an MRI taken of the stress fracture in his left leg was healing but not as quickly as hoped. It could mean he’s unavailable for the first round of the playoffs, not that the Lakers were counting on him to average 20 points. Derrick Caracter was assigned to the Bakersfield Jam of the developmental league.
