Rookie Brian Cook is no longer a healthy reserve. He broke his right pinkie and coach Phil Jackson said ``it doesn't look good for him.''

``I've never seen anything like it,'' veteran Bryon Russell said of the team's frequent injuries.

Ugh

:sigh: :sigh: :sigh:

DALLAS — The Lakers are going to assume the last few weeks will have no bearing on what happens from here. Publicly, they'll stick to that.

But in some arenas on some nights, such as American Airlines Center on Thursday, when Brian Cook breaks his finger in a 106-87 loss to the Dallas Mavericks, when a tied score in the third quarter becomes a rout, well, Gary Payton can't help but observe, "It just goes from worse to worse."

Cook, the Laker rookie who had his first career start Wednesday night, officially joined the Laker infirm when a deflected ball struck the tip of his right pinkie. X-rays confirmed what Cook knew immediately to be true, so just as the Lakers appeared to be gaining on their talent and depth issues — Phil Jackson expects Horace Grant on Saturday and has hopes for Kobe Bryant, as well — another man fell.

Phil Jackson said Cook could require surgery, his second already as a Laker. The first was on the ring finger of his left hand.

"Bad luck," Cook called it.

Get well soon Shaq, Karl, Brian, Rick, Kobe, and Jamal :sigh:

This is starting to remind me of the 1996-97 Spurs where David Robinson, Sean Elliott, Avery Johnson and all those guys got injured in the same year and came away with the #1 pick (Tim Duncan). I know our problems aren't that severe but it's a similar situation.

I dont think signing someone is that neccesary. Grant is back next game, Shaq and Sampson will be in at least a week.
