Barnes goes under the knife tomorrow morning.

Yahoo Sports
LOS ANGELES (AP)—Los Angeles Lakers forward Matt Barnes(notes) will have surgery Tuesday to repair torn cartilage in his right knee, an injury expected to sideline him for several weeks.

The Lakers announced the date of Barnes’ surgery Sunday night while hosting the New York Knicks. Team doctor Steve Lombardo will perform the surgery in Los Angeles.

Worst part is he will miss a lot of live game action, that is vital in learning the triangle. I love his movement and ability to rebound also his defense and tenacity.

But I heard on the Telecast yesterday, that Jordan Farmar had the same procedure while with LA and he missed 6 weeks, I vaguely remember that.

Farmar is younger so he probably heals a little faster, I would put a conservative estimate as 6 weeks. Matt should be back, ready to play in time for 10 or so regular season games to get timing and rythm. That is a positive at least.

Such a blow!! Matt was playing well at times... I really love
how he always charges inside for rebounds when a shot goes up.

I think with the Allstar game coming up in LA, the Lakers want to
be on a winning streak. It's a lot easier being a host when the team
is happy....

Maybe knowing that the bench is a little less deep, others will
kick it up a notch. I'm glad to be rid of those 80 point games!!!

Tough blow, this is going to make Kobe play more minutes, which I am not happy with. I was happy with his season averages of mpg, but now its going to go up. He will be playing more 3. Luke may get a few more mpg, but I doubt he becomes a serious rotation player. Artest will need to step up his game to help alleviate this blow.

so basically we have to rely on ron artest and luke walton (stephen a. smith voice) to play well or else kobe's minutes go up? ...yay...

Kobe will see more time on the floor with Brown and Blake. Kobe already plays the 3 offensively, so its not a big change in that regard. But the added minutes, and playing with the reserves might be a big change.
