The sore knee and fluid build up that kept Metta World Peace from returning to action Sunday night was actually the result of a torn ligament in his knee. The Los Angeles Lakers can't seem to catch a break. With MWP's injury, the Lakers will have to find a way to replace his production - at least for a little while.
According to Dave McMenamin of ESPN Los Angeles, MWP will see team doctor Steve Lombardo back in Los Angeles. From there, the club will get a better idea of how long MWP will be out. He hopes it's only a week though.
The Lakers have seen almost everyone of their stars and role players injured this year. From Steve Nash to Pau Gasol. From Dwight Howard to Kobe Bryant. From Steve Blake to Metta World Peace. It's been a rough year for Los Angeles. Now, they will have to find a way to get back on the winning track. They've lost three-straight, and those have all been with MWP playing.
MWP has averaged 12.8 points and 5.1 rebounds per game this season. In his career, he has averaged 14.1 points and 4.8 rebounds per game.
