Most teams are trying to make sure their players don’t get injured before the playoffs.
The Lakers are worried about baby diseases.
Guard Steve Blake has the chicken pox. The big problem is that a few key players — Kobe Bryant, Andrew Bynum, and Ron Artest — have never gotten the pox, so they are susceptible to contracting it.
Steve will be taking a couple weeks off to recover, and his wife has assured everone that she’ll nurse him back to health.
She wrote on twitter:
"And before anyone asks NO my kids didn't give it to him. They were vaccinated and are healthy. No clue where or how Steve got chicken pox….I'll have him healthy and back in no time."
Lakers players better starting taking some extra vitamin C!
