4/15 Injury Update: Sasha Vujacic’s Ankle

blog_100415sashavujacicA MRI taken by Dr. Ken Jung on Wednesday morning confirmed that Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic suffered a severe ankle sprain in the second quarter of L.A.’s Tuesday evening loss to the Clippers.

As the team reported after the game, there was no fracture to Vujacic’s ankle, but Lakers Spokesman John Black called it a “serious injury” that will take the Slovenian weeks, not days, from which to recover.

The team has put no official timetable on Vujacic’s potential return, but he is not expected to be available for at least L.A.’s first round series against Oklahoma City.
