Lakers Caracter tears meniscus in left knee

The Lakers were already thin inside, and they just got thinner. According to the team, power forward Derrick Caracter tore a meniscus in his left knee at practice on Monday.

Caracter is schedule to have surgery Wednesday morning. No timetable has been set yet.

The Lakers just traded Lamar Odom for nothing and while they signed Josh McRoberts on Tuesday, the front line is definitely thin for the Lakers. Caracter wasn't set to play a ton probably, but he provided much needed depth behind the oft-injured Andrew Bynum -- who is suspended for the first five games, mind you -- and Pau Gasol. McRoberts' signing comes at a pretty good time for the team.

The 2010 second round pick saw some early-season minutes in his rookie season while Andrew Bynum recovered from injury, averaging 5.2 minutes per game towards 2.0 points and 1.0 rebounds on the season.
