EL SEGUNDO, Calif., March 3 (AP) -- Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom was diagnosed Saturday with a left shoulder injury.

Odom, who was injured Friday night against Sacramento, underwent an MRI exam Saturday that revealed a torn labrum, team spokesman John Black said. He didn't travel to Phoenix for a game on Sunday and will see a doctor Monday.

Odom got hurt when he was fouled by Sacramento's Brad Miller with 2:47 remaining of a 116-108 loss. Odom finished with 26 points, 13 rebounds and six assists.

Black said the team would not speculate on whether Odom could be sidelined indefinitely.

It was the second major injury of the season for Odom, who missed 1+ months because of a sprained right ankle before returning Jan. 27.

Two years ago, Odom sustained the same left shoulder injury, underwent surgery and missed the final two months of the season.

Luke Walton is set to see a specialist Monday about his sprained right ankle. He has missed 16 games.

Kwame Brown returned Friday night after missing 27 games because of a severely sprained right ankle

The injury bug seems to have a thing for the Staples Center. ;)
