Lakers forward Lamar Odom to get MRI exam on right foot

November 14, 2010 | 10:50 pm

Lakers forward Lamar Odom is scheduled to get an MRI exam Monday on his right foot after experiencing soreness. Coach Phil Jackson described it as a "bone bruise."

"It's aching, especially in the morning," Odom said after the Lakers' 121-116 loss Sunday to the Phoenix Suns. "I've played a lot of basketball. It's just wear and tear."

Odom didn't say when the injury happened but added he's had the injury "for a little bit." The injury also caused Odom to miss Saturday's practice.

"Just playing through it. It kind of caught up to me," Odom said. "Hopefully all I need is ice."

Theo Ratliff also plans to get an MRI exam Monday for his sore left knee.
