 EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) -Lakers forward Trevor Ariza will be out for an undetermined time because of a broken right foot. The team already is without center Andrew Bynum, who is sidelined until at least mid-March with a knee injury.
Los Angeles signed free-agent center DJ Mbenga to a 10-day contract Monday. The 7-footer from the Congo was released by Golden State on Jan. 6.
Ariza fractured a bone at practice Sunday and was to see a foot specialist Monday to learn when he might return. He is averaging 6.5 points and 3.5 rebounds in 24 games since being acquired from Orlando on Nov. 20 for Brian Cook and Maurice Evans.
Bynum injured his left kneecap Jan. 13 against Memphis. The Lakers also have been playing without center Chris Mihm (sore right Achilles' tendon) and forward Vladimir Radmanovic (sprained right ankle). The Lakers hope both will be back in the next few weeks.
Mbenga was averaging 1.2 points, 1.9 rebounds, 0.63 blocked shots and 8.1 minutes in 16 games with the Warriors. He spent three seasons with Dallas before being waived Oct. 30. He was limited to 21 games last season because of a left foot tendon strain and a torn right anterior cruciate ligament.
