Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Blake will be sidelined at least two more weeks with an abdominal strain.
The backup point guard had an MRI exam Wednesday.
Blake has missed eight games with the injury, which sidelined him in the first half Nov. 11 at Sacramento. He will miss at least seven more games.
Blake's injury occurred at a particularly inopportune time for the Lakers, who also have been without starting point guard Steve Nash since the second game of the regular season. The two-time NBA MVP has a small fracture in his right leg, with no date set for his return.
Darius Morris has struggled while starting the Lakers' last eight games at point guard. He was held to one point on 0-for-6 shooting by Indiana on Tuesday night.

Leave it to MWP to say what most of us are thinking.
Fact is, they are a game under .500, and most of the time this season they have absolutely played down to their record. Sometimes, even lower, like the rancid offensive performance against Indiana last Tuesday...
Kobe Bryant wore his Nike Grinch shoes for the past two years on Christmas Day, and it looks like he will be rocking them this year as well. Nike unveiled the kicks today and from the looks of it, I think folks should be fairly happy. How do you think they compare to his 2010 and 2011 shoes?

LOS ANGELES Theres one conclusion about the 2012-13 Lakers that isabsolutely undeniable: No one themselves included knows which Laker team isgoing to show up on a night-to-night basis.

Angry Lakers fan @ArtemBoyajyan was not happy how Joey Crawford called last nights Lakers-Pacers game: ‘I hope Joey Crawford gets run over by a truck and then anally raped by a gorilla. F*CK YOU.’ There was very little sentiment for Crawford…especially after his douchy dance after he called a blocking foul on Lakers guard Chris Duhon (GIF below).
We all know how much of an...

Los Angeles Lakers Metta World Peace apparently has to be digitally connected at all times, even while on the court. Peace is a spokesperson for the first cell phone watch made by iCellWatch. It seems like a knock-off apple shuffle watch but at least we can check the weather while playing basketball.

GQ recently released a list titled “The Least Influential People of 2012″. One particular NBA player made that list. That player, you may ask? Dwight Howard of the Los Angeles Lakers. GQ did include an important note that states,

With that said, Dwight Howard is listed...
The Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Indiana Pacers Tuesday night, falling back below .500 and they did it in large part to their inability to sink free throws (23-43 from the line), problems shooting in general (31.6 percent from the field), trouble protecting the ball (19 turnovers) and former Spurs guard George Hill.
The Pacers were up one with 35 seconds to go when Hill hit...
NBA veteran ref Joey Crawford was really feeling it Tuesday night. Crawford called a blocking foul on this play and even executed a little dance after. What’s even funnier than that? A dance off battle between Crawford and Lakers Chris Duhon… Some of you are seriously creative geniuses with too much time on your [...]
