EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) Los Angeles Lakers guard Ronnie Price had surgery to remove bone spurs and bone chips from his right elbow.
The team said Wednesday that Price is expected to be out six to eight weeks, a timetable that could put him close to missing the rest of the season. The Lakers, who won't make the playoffs, end their season on April 15.
Price was averaging 5.1 points, 1.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists in 43 games, including 20 starts this season. He joined the team as a free agent in September.
