Source: Lakers Consider Reserve Role For Pau Gasol

The Los Angeles Lakers are considering bringing Pau Gasol off the bench when he returns from knee tendinitis, according to a source.

Gasol has struggled this season under both Mike Brown and Mike D'Antoni.

D'Antoni has benched Gasol twice since becoming head coach of the Lakers.

D'Antoni recently said he went with Antawn Jamison in those two games because "we just have to be a more dynamic team."

"We're slow right now," D'Antoni said this week. "Athletically, we're struggling against young teams that just run up and down."
