Lakers Injury Update: Jodie Meeks Set To Play; Pau Gasol Questionable

With the NBA trade deadline looming, the injury problems for the Los Angeles Lakers have taken a backseat as of late. Although trade rumors continue to swirl involving players like Jordan Hill, Steve Blake, Chris Kaman and Pau Gasol, the team is slowly starting to get key players back healthy.

Fortunately for the Lakers, sharpshooter Jodie Meeks will likely be back on the floor for Dwight Howard’s return to the Staples Center on Wednesday according to Mike Trudell of Lakers.com:

Along with Meeks returning and Young still on the shelf, Jordan Farmar is considered doubtful against the Rockets according to Trudell:

According Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters, Steve Nash didn’t practice on Tuesday and will not play against the Rockets:

Fortunately, after participating in practice on Tuesday afternoon, Pau Gasol was upgraded from doubtful to questionable for Wednesday’s game according to Winters:

As for Kobe Bryant and Xavier Henry, no substantial update was given on the five-time NBA champion’s status while Henry will be re-evaluated on Friday.
