Injury Update: Xavier Henry

Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento KingsLakers Injury Report sponsored by UCLA Health SystemXavier Henry, who has been sidelined since Dec. 29, is expected to be out another 10-14 days, according to coach Mike D’Antoni.

Henry recently went through some on-court work on Wednesday in Miami, doing some running, lateral slide drills and shooting, but did not participate in practice.

“I’m feeling better,” Henry told Lakers.com’s Mike Trudell after his workout. “I’m not where I want to be but nobody is expecting me right now, so I’m out here, I’m doing drills, being able to move around, run, jump, cut and things like that. I just want to get to pain free and then we’ll go from there.”

Although Henry acknowledged he’s feeling better, there is no hard return date in mind.

“I really just have to go day-by-day,” he explained. “Tomorrow I’ll see if it’s sore or how sore, and then we’ll either ramp it up or we’ll continue what we’re on. But we need to be on a path to at least be steady to get me back.”
