El SEGUNDO, Calif. - Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom will miss at least the next month because of a sprained right knee.
Odom was diagnosed Wednesday by team orthopedist Dr. Steve Lombardo, a day after the 6-foot-10 star was hurt in a 102-94 victory at Houston.
Odom is averaging a career-high 17.5 points and 8.7 rebounds this season.
He was injured in the first quarter when he landed awkwardly after Shane Battier blocked his shot on a drive. Odom stayed in the game for another 90 seconds, but the Lakers called a timeout to pull him.
"I felt like something was really wrong," Odom said after the game. "I've never had anything like this."
