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.
