Lakers reserve guard Vujacic out indefinitely with ankle injury

Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic will be sidelined indefinitely because of a severely sprained left ankle, a team spokesman said Thursday.

"It could two weeks, it could be 10 weeks. We don't have a crystal ball," Lakers spokesman John Black said. "Everybody's body heals differently, but it will be on the longer end. He's not going to be back any time soon."

Vujacic was injured Wednesday when he landed on the foot of the Clippers' Mardy Collins after attempting a 20-footer in the second quarter of the Lakers' 107-91 loss. X-rays were negative and an MRI exam Thursday confirmed a severe high-ankle sprain.

Vujacic is averaging 2.8 points and 8.6 minutes and had seen more playing time recently because of Kobe Bryant's four-game absence to rest an assortment of ailments.
