EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) -Los Angeles Lakers center Chris Mihm has re-signed with the team after missing all of last season following reconstructive ankle surgery.
Mihm, an unrestricted free agent who turned 28 on Monday, had averaged career highs of 10.2 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.24 blocked shots in 59 games during the 2005-06 season.
Paid $4.2 million by the Lakers for last season, the 7-foot, 265-pound Mihm underwent surgery in November to repair a ligament and tendon in his right ankle and to realign his heel bone.
His absence was particularly critical for the Lakers because they have had a lack of depth in the middle.
Mihm injured his ankle in the final minute of a game against Seattle on March 12, 2006, and played just once the rest of that season.
He was acquired by the Lakers from the Boston Celtics along with Chucky Atkins and Jumaine Jones for Gary Payton, Rick Fox and a first-round draft pick on Aug. 13, 2004.
Mihm has averaged 8.0 points and 5.5 rebounds in 395 career NBA games.
