An MRI on Antawn Jamison's right wrist showed scar tissue, evidence of a previous injury, and a sprain, but nothing that suggested he shouldn't play Monday. Jamison, who suffered the sprain in Friday's loss to Washington, likely will wear a brace on his wrist and play at Golden State in the first of a four-game trip. "Each day, it's been a lot better," Jamison said after participating in non-contract drills Sunday to avoid bumping his wrist. "I've played through pain before, so the first two games of this road trip I might have to play with a little pain, but then I should be back to normal." The Lakers listed Jamison as day-to-day and Coach Mike D'Antoni called him a game-time decision. "You're always concerned," D'Antoni said. "But if he says it's fine. It's fine. The biggest problem is if he reinjures it or gets hit again. It will sting for a while and there's going to be pain and if it doesn't hinder him, he will be OK and if not, he will have to rest it." The Lakers plan to re-evaluate Jamison at the end of the season to see if he needs surgery. "My biggest thing is I don't want this to be a problem the last year or two I have (left) after the season," said Jamison, who will become a free agent after this season. "I want to make sure I'm healthy. We'll look at it after the season to make sure no further damage has taken place." Jamison's recent injury came in the second half Friday when Wizards center Kevin Serpahin blocked Jamison's dunk attempt, forcing his wrist to bend backward. X-rays taken immediately after the game were negative.
