EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Los Angeles Lakers backup point guard Ronnie Price will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery Wednesday to remove a bone spur in his right elbow, Lakers coach Byron Scott told reporters after practice at their facility here Tuesday.

The surgery is scheduled to be performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic, the Lakers said in a statement.

Price played in 43 games for the Lakers this season, starting 20 of them before moving back to the bench so that Scott could give more minutes to rookie Jordan Clarkson.

Price averaged 5.1 points, 1.6 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.6 steals in 22.8 minutes per game and was considered to be the Lakers' top perimeter defender. He signed with the Lakers as a free agent in September. http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/story/_/id/12376628/ronnie-price-los-angeles-lakers-season-elbow-surgery?ex_cid=espnapi_public

Good, more minutes for Clarkson. Playing him now was pointless.

Nash also and we can bring up 3.

Also the rest of the team and we can bring up 15.

They might actually win more games tho...

Sad to see Ronnie hurt, but it also didn't seem he was going to fit in byron's line up rotations anyway so really kind of a mute point. Does hurt our PG depth if Lin or Clarkson get hurt, But like stated above more D-leaguers=stronger tank

Lin,Boozer,Hill and Nick clown Young should systematically eliminated from this team. Waive all and trade Young at soon as it is possible.

See Why i think Lakers are better off resigning Lin to a more reasonable contract than signing Rhondo. Run the point good nice lil floater in the lane but dude got a bad attitude and his shooting kills you if he dont dominate the ball and have very good shooters. IMO target Branon knight hoping Sund dont match then Dragic to a slight less than max, if not then Rhondo if he is will to sign for 9mil, if not resign Lin to a reasonable contract.

IMO lakers should resisgn both Lin and Davis the bench would be set

Brandon knight,lin,clarston
thadd young,johnson,
hope Okafar, ed davis, black or sacre
