Pau Gasol Out With Knee Tendinitis
Pau Gasol will not play for the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday due to knee tendinitis in both knees.
Gasol is officially listed as day-to-day.
"The biggest thing with him was that he was playing hurt and in this league you just can't do that," Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni said. "I just didn't think he was running fluidly."
Antawn Jamison will start for the Lakers in Gasol's absence.
"We got to get him healthy," D'Antoni said. "Whatever it takes -- one game, two games, 10 games -- I don't know. It's day to day but he's got to be healthy. It wasn't fair (to him). He's trying to battle through some stuff and in this league, you just can't do that."
