Report: Pau Gasol Ruled Out Of Friday’s Game Against Washington

Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times has this report on Pau Gasol.

No surprise that he’s out; there hasn’t been a main timetable for his return. But with the Lakers being 1-5 without him, it makes the critics second-guess on whether the seven-footer was the main problem. The record indicates otherwise.

Pau Gasol has been out with tendinitis on both knees and has not played since the Lakers lost against Orlando on December 2nd. This will be the seventh consecutive game Gasol is going to miss.

Hopefully, he can get back sooner than later as the Lakers are now 9-14. While the Lakers are 1-5 without Gasol, they have been 1-6 in their last seven games.

Coach Mike D’Antoni will likely start Antawn Jamison, who has started five of the last six games, in Gasol’s place against the Wizards on Friday night.
