Lakers Johnson, Henry Leave With Injuries

Wesley Johnson has been a star during Los Angeles Lakers training camp, receiving daily compliments from teammates and the coaching staff in the press. And Xavier Henry, with a combined 44 points in L.A.’s first two preseason games, has been the darling of the early exhibition slate. So it was doubly discouraging to see both players suffer injuries in Sunday’s 97-88 preseason loss to the Denver Nuggets.
Johnson left the game in the first quarter because of a strained left foot, finishing with only two points and three rebounds in eight minutes, while shooting 1-for-5 from the field with two turnovers. Johnson has an MRI exam scheduled Monday to examine the injury.
Henry, who scored a team-high 15 points on 4-for-7 shooting and 7-for-9 from the foul line, aggravated the moderate sprain in his right (non-shooting) wrist in the fourth quarter. Henry is with the Lakers on a non-guaranteed, training camp invite and is trying to make the team’s 15-man roster.
