An MRI taken Saturday confirmed that Lakers forward Antawn Jamison has a sprained right wrist, but a source close to the Lakers forward said he still plans to suit up Monday when the Lakers visit the Golden State Warriors.
The Lakers are officially listing Jamison as day-to-day and plan to reevaluate him at the end of the season. The injury stemmed from Washington center Kevin Serpahin blocking Jamison’s dunk attempt late in the third quarter of the Lakers’ 103-100 loss Friday to the Wizards.
Jamison sat out the entire fourth quarter and wore a wrist brace after receiving x-rays that turned out negative. Despite the injury, Jamison still carried a bag with his right hand as he exited the locker room.
The injury to Jamison, who has averaged 9.2 points and 4.7 rebounds this season, coincided with Lakers forward Pau Gasol returning after missing 20 consecutive games because of a torn plantar fascia in his right foot.
