Injuries continue to be a problem for the Los Angeles Lakers with Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Steve Blake, Jordan Farmar and Xavier Henry still on the shelf. Although the majority of these players don't have a set timetable for a return to the floor, Henry will be re-evaluated on Wednesday according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters on Jan. 20:

Xavier Henry will not play Thurs vs. Miami. He will push himself at practice on Wednesday according to D'Antoni, and will be evaluated then.

Henry has been out of the lineup for the Lakers since suffering a bone bruise in the loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Dec. 29. With Henry out, Jodie Meeks and newcomers Kendall Marshall and Manny Harris have helped shoulder the load in the backcourt.

Marshall has played extremely well in his short time with the team averaging 11.9 assists per game since he began filling as the starting point guard. Marshall's play may have increased his chances of locking up a long-term future in the NBA.

As for Henry, the return of the former lottery pick will definitely provide a boost needed for this team that has been trying to figure out how to battle through these injuries in order to be a legitimate playoff contender in the Western Conference.

In 31 games played so far this season, Henry is averaging 10.1 points per game while shooting 42 percent from the floor.
