The hammer finally came down on Metta yesterday afternoon when the NBA Communications department tweeted that MWP would be out for seven games, for the elbow to James Harden. A harsh suspension that barring a seven game first round series, would see the forward missing the entire first round.
The Lakers announced that Matt Barnes would have to miss this Thursday's matchup against the Kings due to a microscopic tear of a ligament in his ankle, in which he suffered after rolling his ankle during Sunday's game. Moments later, it was announced that Devin Ebanks bruised his ring and middle fingers of his left hand due to a weightlifting accident. That may put the Lakers without their three small forwards as they look to lock the number THREE seed on Thursday night.
