Los Angeles Lakers' Xavier Henry has a torn ligament in his left wrist, an MRI revealed Saturday.

Henry injured his wrist Friday night and said it was "sore and tender." A precautionary MRI was scheduled and he was expected to be a game-time decision Saturday night. The result is presumably surprising, since Henry said Friday night that he would "just have to battle through this," according to Mark Medina of Inside SoCal.

This is his second significant injury of the season, having dealt with a knee injury back in December.

There's currently no timetable for Henry, who will be examined by a hand specialist on Monday.
