The SportsXchange

Los Angeles Lakers guard Xavier Henry was diagnosed Monday with a bone bruise in his right knee, and he will be out at least a week.

Henry strained his knee Sunday in the first quarter against the Philadelphia 76ers and did not return after playing just over four minutes.

He underwent an MRI exam Monday, and the test revealed the bone bruise and an abnormality of the lateral meniscus, according to team physician Steve Lombardo. Henry will be re-evaluated in seven to 10 days, according to the Lakers.

Henry previously filled in at point guard with Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Jordan Farmar out due to injuries. He moved over to shooting guard when Farmar returned and Kobe Bryant went out with a fractured left knee.

Henry is averaging 10.4 points and 2.8 rebounds per game.

Guard Kendall Marshall, who was recently called up from the NBA Development League, replaced Henry in the playing rotation Sunday night.
