Despite a ligament tear in his right wrist, Antawn Jamison will play tonight versus the Golden State Warriors, according to ESPN:
Antawn Jamison was able to participate in non-contact drills during Lakers practice Sunday and despite his sprained right wrist, plans to play against the Golden State Warriors on Monday.
“It will take a lot for me not to be out there,” Jamison said. “I should be OK.”
A MRI exam taken Saturday revealed Jamison suffered a slight tear in his right wrist in the second half of the Lakers’ 103-100 loss to the Washington Wizards on Friday.
“It’s sore, but as long as I’m able to shoot it and put it on the ground for one or two dribbles, I should be fine,” Jamison said. “It’s just the initial shock of it taking place and trying to get over the soreness and the swelling, but nothing is slowing me down. I was able to shoot the ball.”
You may remember that Kobe Bryant suffered a similar injury last year to his shooting hand – he went on to rattle off four-straight 40-point games despite the torn ligament. Of course, Jamison isn’t Kobe, but the fact that Jamison has said he doesn’t feel pain when shooting is a good sign.
Jamison may require surgery after the season, though it was not needed for Bryant.
