Lakers Injury Update: Xavier Henry will not be ready for training camp

Los Angeles Lakers forward Xavier Henry will not be healthy as the team begins training camp on Tuesday. After right knee surgery in mid-April, the 23-year-old is still rehabbing and isn't quite ready to take the court. Henry's left wrist, which he also had surgery on in the same time period, is completely healed.

Head coach Byron Scott told reporters earlier this month that it was unlikely Henry would be healthy for the beginning of training camp. While there is no current timetable on Henry's return to the court, he has been limited to running on a weight-bearing treadmill.

Henry, who played on three different teams in the first four years of his career, finally found a home with the Lakers. Henry averaged 10 points and three rebounds in about 21 minutes per game last season in his first significant role since entering the league in 2010. The Lakers re-signed him to a one-year deal this offseason, and he is expected to get minutes at both shooting guard and small forward.
