Lakers’ World Peace Strains Knee in Loss
Metta World Peace left the Los Angeles Lakers’ 109-103 loss to the Golden State Warriors with a strained left knee and did not play after halftime.
World Peace is day-to-day and will be re-evaluated in Minnesota on Tuesday. The Lakers face the Timberwolves on the road on Wednesday.
“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 said. “He’s just really hurting, so that’s why we held him (out), but I don’t know what that means.”
World Peace could not remember the specific play that caused the aggravation but said it occurred late in the second quarter.
