Knee injury forces Lakers’ Devin Ebanks to miss summer league

LAS VEGAS — Small forward Devin Ebanks was ruled out of summer league because of a sore knee. He stayed behind at the team’s El Segundo training facility to undergo rehabilitation exercises with athletic trainer Gary Vitti.

Christian Eyenga, who played in only one game for the Lakers after he was acquired from the Cleveland Cavaliers with Ramon Sessions last March, started in Ebanks’ spot and scored eight points on 2-for-8 shooting in a 40-point loss Friday to the Warriors.

Two of Eyenga’s points came on a spectacular play in which he soared through the air to rebound a teammate’s missed shot and then threw down a thunderous dunk, one of only a handful of highlights for the Lakers.
