Mike Bresnahan from LATimes tweeted:
Matt Barnes has a torn lateral meniscus in his right knee, will miss several weeks (no official timetable yet). Surgery early next week.
This hurts the Lakers bench. Maybe this means Joe Smith can get some playing time. Lamar Odom will most likely help Ron Artest at the Small Forward position. I would prefer if Luke Walton sits on the bench and not get the playing time.
Who knows what Phil will do.
