Well I had an oil filter fall of my Dodge back when I had a Dodge. I was doing about 75 mph down the freeway, heard a clunk under the truck, looked in the mirror and saw something bouncing down the road. Continued on for about 100' before thinking "that looked like an oil filter" looked down at the oil pressure guage, yep-it was 0 and the big red light was on.
By the time I got pulled over and shut off the truck I had probably traveled atleast 1/2 mile. I walked back up the orad found the oil filter, and the gasket-screwed it back on, started the truck and drove about a mile to the next exit and gas station where I got oil and filled it ...If I remember correctly it took over 8 quarts.
Anyways, I had that truck for over 50,000 miles after that with no problems.
As was said, since the truck didn't actually start or run for any real length of time, I highly doubt you would have any type of issues related to lubrication.
