Xavier Henry set for surgery
Los Angeles Lakers guard Xavier Henry is scheduled to have surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left wrist as well as arthroscopic surgery on the cartilage abnormality in his right knee Friday.
The timetable for his recovery will be given at the conclusion of his surgeries.
Henry fell on his left wrist in the second half of the Lakers' 117-107 loss to the Washington Wizards on March 21 and missed four of the Lakers' last seven games after that. He originally hurt his knee in a 111-104 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Dec. 29 and missed 28 games with the injury.
The 6-foot-6, 220 pound swingman aggravated his knee against Milwaukee on March 27 and was able to play in just one game after that.
