Lakers' Xavier Henry has surgery on wrist and knee

By Royce Young | NBA writer

Lakers guard Xavier Henry is done for the rest of the season after having surgeries to repair issues in his wrist and knee.

Henry hasn't played since March 28, and before that was out almost two months. He'll have a procedure done to repair a torn ligament in his left wrist (shooting hand) and another to fix a cartilage abnormality in his right knee.

The team lists his timetable as being ready for training camp this fall.

Henry, 23, will be a free agent this summer however, after signing a one-year veteran minimum with the Lakers last offseason. In 43 games he averaged career-highs across the board, putting up 10.0 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists.
