NBA: Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles LakersAccording to team spokesman John Blake at Lakers practice today, the Lakers are facing some serious injury issues following their Sunday night loss to the Denver Nuggets.

Black spoke to reporters on Monday and informed everyone that Dwight Howard suffered a torn labrum in his shoulder and is out at least a week, but will still travel with the team.

Pau Gasol is out indefinitely with a concussion sustained vs. Denver, and will not travel with the team.

And, to top it all off, Jordan Hill is also out after suffering a hip injury on Sunday night.
