Lakers guard Ronnie Price to undergo elbow surgery

Lakers guard Ronnie Price will have surgery Wednesday to remove a bone spur in his right elbow

Lakers veteran guard Ronnie Price will undergo elbow surgery on Wednesday to remove a bone spur from his right elbow.

The procedure will be performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic. The Lakers will give a timeline for his recovery after the surgery.

In his 10th season, first with the Lakers, Price has played 43 games, averaging 5.1 points and 3.8 assists a game.  Price also started 20 games this year before giving way to rookie guard Jordan Clarkson.

Price has been dealing with elbow pain for well over a month, playing despite the bone spur.

Nick Young sat out practice Tuesday with a sore left knee.  An MRI on Monday didn't show a significant injury.

Robert Sacre (foot) was able to scrimmage with the team and is available on Wednesday when the Lakers visit the Utah Jazz.
