Lakers News: Pau Gasol Could be Sidelined for the Regular Season

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Brooklyn NetsJust when things seemed to be getting better in Southern California, the team was struck with some tough news. Although nothing is finalized just yet, there is a chance that star forward Pau Gasol will be out of the lineup for the remainder of the regular season.

Mark Medina reports that Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni suggested that Gasol will not be back in action until the playoffs roll around, that is if the Lakers make it into the top eight.

“By the time he [Gasol] gets back, we’ll be in or out,” D’Antoni said. “His impact will be in the playoffs if we get there.”

Gasol suffered his foot injury on February 5 when the team was in Brooklyn playing the Nets. At first reports indicated that Gasol will miss six to eight weeks, but it appears as though the seven foot Spaniard will miss more time.

At this point, the Lakers are three games behind in the loss column to the eight seeded Houston Rockets, and based on the way the Lakers have been playing as of late, they can surely jump into the top eight.

The players are beginning to figure out the offense and the chemistry on the court is clearly improving. Los Angeles is looking more and more like a playoff team and it should only get better once Gasol returns to the lineup.

    Here is my prediction for Pau’s future, if Dwight re-sign with Lakers, Lakers will be paying $80M luxury tax. Kobe is not going anywhere, so the solution will be trading Pau away for draft picks, cheap young players and trade exceptions. D’Antoni is not going anywhere, many of you have this delusional bad impression about D’Antoni, I will suggest you stop drink those media juice. Pau may even ask for a trade believe it or not, with the raise of Hill and Clark, Gasol may be the odd man out in the off season.
