Lakers reserve forward Devin Ebanks is expected to remain sidelined for at least three weeks suffering a stress fracture in his left leg.

Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said he believed the injury happened during the morning shootaround before their game Feb. 10 against Boston where Ebanks dunked the ball.

"He had some issues with that leg," Jackson said. "It went away and didn't bother him as much, but it resurfaced recently."

Ebanks has been used sparingly off the bench, appearing in 20 games and averaging 3.1 points and 1.4 rebounds in 5.9 minutes per contest.
