When Xavier Henry might return

UPDATE: According to Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles.com, Henry will travel with the team during the seven-game road trip, however he won't return until sometime next week.

Henry will meet with the doctor on Monday or Tuesday for a checkup and if all goes well he should be cleared. If not, he might have to miss another week.


The injury-riddled Los Angeles Lakers have been without Xavier Henry since Dec. 29 due to a right knee bone bruise. Henry practiced on Sunday for the first since he suffered the injury and there is a chance he might return to the active roster on Tuesday when the Lakers play Cleveland.
