Bad news about the right knee of Matt Barnes, which he hurt in the first half of last night's game. An MRI today has confirmed a tear of the lateral meniscus that will require surgery early next week. The Lakers won't give a timetable until after the surgery has been performed.
Expect more minutes at the small forward spot for Ron Artest and Luke Walton. Also, Kevin Ding reports that Devin Ebanks will be recalled from Bakersfield.
