LOS ANGELES Marqise Lee says some of his teammates were shaken up. Theyd seen this movie before.
Just two months before, they watched as George Farmer went down with a season-ending knee injury. The unfortunate part of the matter is injuries are a part of the game.
"It happens," is the message Lee has tried to explain to injured teammate Steven Mitchell, as well as the healthy receivers on his team.
