Lakers guard Steve Blake suffers left foot wound in accident
Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E Sports) – Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Blake sustained a punctured wound to his left foot after accidentally stepping on a spike strip in a parking lot, the team announced Wednesday.
Blake will be prohibited to join impact exercises for three weeks as the Lakers training camp begins this weekend.
Averaging 5.2 ppg, 3.3 assists and 33.5 percent from 3-point range last season, Blake is expected to play a crucial role for the Lakers this coming season as a primary backup to an aging Steve Nash.
According to reports, Chris Duhon and second-year guard Darius Morris will likely get more playing time while Blake is recovering from the injury.
