The Los Angeles Lakers are once again struggling to reach .500, and with their main stars out with injuries, things are looking bad for the team.

Kobe Bryant is once again sidelined for an extended period of time and the guard will be out for at least four weeks with a knee injury. Pau Gasol, on the other end, is dealing with respiratory problems and he is also being forced to miss some time. The Lakers are now relying on role players to produce like starters and the added pressure is something many of them cannot handle.

It was another news filled week at Lakers Nation and here is a week in review.
