LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles Lakers forward Antawn Jamison suffered a sprained right wrist in Friday's 103-100 loss to the Washington Wizards. X-rays taken after the game were negative, however Jamison is scheduled to undergo a MRI exam on Saturday to further evaluate the injury.

"I'll see how I am tomorrow," Jamison said while walking out of the locker room with a brace on his wrist.

The injury appeared to happen when Jamison's dunk attempt with 1:10 remaining in the third quarter was blocked by the Wizards' Kevin Seraphin.

Jamison finished the game with 11 points on 5-for-9 shooting along with seven rebounds. He did not play in the fourth quarter.

The 15-year veteran is averaging 9.2 points and 4.7 rebounds this season.

The timing of Jamison's injury speaks to the revolving-door nature of the Lakers' roster this season as it happened the same night Pau Gasol returned to the lineup after missing 20 straight games because of a torn plantar fascia in his right foot. Gasol finished with four points on 2-for-10 shooting and eight rebounds in 21 minutes.
