Los Angeles Lakers' Steve Blake out six weeks

As if this season hasn’t been hard enough on the Los Angeles Lakers, they were dealt another huge blow on Thursday.

The team announced, via twitter, that point guard Steve Blake will miss at least the next six weeks.


With Kobe Bryant’s injury and Steve Nash unable to stay on the court, the Lakers have really needed Blake.

Blake has actually played through the injury in the last two games. The team reported he was originally injured in a 106-100 victory over the Sacramento Kings on December 6.

Blake has played in all 21 games this season and has been one of their only consistent shooters. Blake isn’t fairing that well from the floor, posting a field goal percentage of 39.8%, down from his career average of 40.5%, but he has been very good from beyond the arc, shooting 40.0% from three.

Blake is averaging 9.8 points, 7.7 assists and 3.3 rebounds per game.
