The Lakers are holding out hope that it’s nothing serious, but forward Wesley Johnson will undergo an MRI Monday after straining his left foot in the Lakers’ 97-88 preseason loss Sunday to the Denver Nuggets at Staples Center.
Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni said Johnson experienced a “burning sensation” in his foot, but it seems unclear what caused the injury.
“He doesn’t know,” D’Antoni said. “It was strange. He kind of turned his foot, he thought.”
Johnson didn’t speak with reporters afterwards. He finished with two points on 1 of 5 shooting in eight minutes before leaving the game altogether with 3:59 remaining in the first quarter.
