Odom Suffers Contusion

Add Lamar Odom to the list of Lakers forwards that are nursing minor injuries as training camp hits the midway point.

Late in the first half Ron Artest and Sacramento’s Jon Brockman got tangled up under the basket, eventually kicking Odom in the shin as they fell to the floor.

Odom would briefly return to action in the second half before retiring to the locker room to get checked out by trainer Gary Vitti. He is officially being listed as day-to-day with a lower right leg contusion.

After the game Odom told Lakers.com’s Mike Trudell that while the shin was sore, he wasn’t overly worried about it.
