The Los Angeles Lakers NBA basketball guard Sasha Vujacic has been sidelined after being concussed when he was hit in the face by a team mate's elbow.

The NBA champions said Vujacic was struck just below the left eye by an errant elbow from team mate Lamar Odom during Friday's practice.

The Slovenian was drafted by the Lakers in 2004 and helped them win championships in each of the past two seasons.
