Xavier Henry completes second D-League rehab appearance

In what marked perhaps one of the final steps toward rehabbing his injured right knee, Xavier Henry scored 19 points in his second appearance with the D-Fenders on Saturday in the Lakers’ Development League affiliate’s 137-126 overtime loss to the Texas Legends.

The Lakers put Henry on a rehab assignment this week with the D-Fenders in hopes that would aid his recovery considering the team’s reduced practice scheduled stemmed from travel and resting an injury-laden roster. After suffering a bone bruise and abnormality in the lateral meniscus of his right knee, Henry could return Monday when the Lakers (20-39) visit the Portland Trail Blazers (41-18) at the Rose Garden.
