Antawn Jamison is hurt, but he will play through the injury as long as he can. The Los Angeles Lakers' power forward has been key since Andrew Bynum's trade to the Philadelphia 76ers. He has stepped in and helped fill the void while Lakers' big men Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard have battled injury. Now Jamison is dealing with a tear in his wrist.
According to Ramona Shellburne of ESPN Los Angeles, Jamison will try to play through the pain.
