Well it looks like Malone is out for at least another month!
Karl Malone, out since Dec. 21 when he injured his right knee, was examined by Dr. Ralph Venuto on Monday and is expected to be sidelined for about another month.
The Lakers said Malone was cleared to ride a stationary bike, Stairmaster and do strength exercises for his knee and leg this week. If all goes well, he will be allowed to add some straight-ahead running next week. If all goes well at that point, he will be allowed to add some cutting drills and exercises.
