Lakers' World Peace suffers torn meniscus

The SportsXchange

Los Angeles Lakers forward Metta World Peace will miss Wednesday night's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves and most likely will be out much longer after suffering a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee on Monday night against the Golden State Warriors.

World Peace will fly back to Los Angeles on Wednesday for further examination when the Lakers should have a better idea how long the 33-year-old will be out

On Tuesday, World Peace tweeted: Sorry bout the injury. First ever knee injury. Recovery time hopefully is a week and a half .

World Peace, is averaging 12.8 points and 5.1 rebounds in 70 games this season.

His injury is the latest in a slew of injuries to beset the Lakers this year. He had been the only starter in the opening day lineup not to miss a game.

"He said that the back of his knee was bothering him and I told him, 'Well, if it's bothering you, you just can't go out,'" Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni told ESPN. "He's just really hurting, so that's why we held him (out), but I don't know what that means."

The Lakers are clinging to the eighth and final spot in the Western Conference playoff, one game ahead of the Utah Jazz with 11 games to play.

Earl Clark, who started 33 games while Pau Gasol was out, likely will replace World Peace in the starting lineup.
