Back injury puts McKie's return to Lakers in jeopardy
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Los Angeles Lakers guard Aaron McKie had to cut his training camp practice time short Friday because of a sore back, raising questions about the 13-year veteran's health.
McKie missed 50 games last season because of a tear in his left quadriceps tendon. He appeared in 14 games, never becoming comfortable with the triangle offense.
The Lakers have 10 guards in training camp -- six of whom have guaranteed contracts, including McKie.
