Radmanovic to miss two months

Los Angeles Lakers forward Vladimir Radmanovic is expected to be out of action for two months with a shoulder injury, the NBA team said on Monday.

Radmanovic, acquired by the Lakers as a free agent last July, separated his right shoulder after falling on a patch of ice in Park City, Utah on Saturday.

The 26-year-old returned to Los Angeles the following day and had MRI and CT scan tests on Monday.

Radmanovic, who played five seasons for the Seattle SuperSonics, is averaging 6.9 points and 3.4 rebounds per game.

The Lakers, who have a win-loss record of 30-24 this season, have lost their last five games and lie second behind the Phoenix Suns in the Pacific Division standings.
