Lakers' Mihm sits out with shoulder injury

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Los Angeles center Chris Mihm was held out
of the Lakers' game Saturday night against the New Orleans Hornets
because of a sprained right shoulder.

Mihm, who had started 45 of the Lakers' first 46 games, is
averaging 10.6 points and 6.8 rebounds.

The Lakers were also without Lamar Odom for the second straight
game with sprained rib cartilage. Odom, the Lakers' second-leading
scorer and top rebounder, had started all 45 games before missing
the Lakers' 112-102 loss at Charlotte on Friday.

Slava Medvedenko (back) and Aaron McKie (quadriceps) also
remained out for Los Angeles.

Brian Cook started in place of Mihm, and Sasha Vujacic made just
his fourth start of the season in Odom's position.
