Lakers News: Pau Gasol Out Vs. Rockets, Meeks To Come Off Bench

Yesterday, it was announced that Pau Gasol was questionable for tonight’s game against the Houston Rockets. Today, Lakers reporter Mike Trudell made it official, Gasol will not play tonight:

Chris Kaman will start in place of Gasol once again and has played exceptional basketball since receiving consistent minutes while Gasol has struggled with his groin injury.

This also means that Gasol may have played his last game as a Laker as it seems more likely than ever that Gasol will be moved at the trade deadline on Thursday.

One of the few Lakers who hasn’t been involved in any trade rumors is Jodie Meeks. Meeks returns to the court tonight, but Mike Trudell reports that he will be coming off the bench:

Meeks has been one of the Lakers most consistent players this season and his return will be much needed.

This game will be the Lakers’ final game before the trade deadline and the team could look much different before their next game.

    Interesting, albeit fairly minor, conundrum regarding the Lakers starting backcourt now that Meeks is back…who to play off the bench. I really like what I’m seeing from Kendall Marshall at the point, and Meeks really is the team’s only true two guard…which sorta tells me that Steve Blake (assuming he doesn’t end up getting traded) should become the team’s first guard off the bench sooner than later…especially if his elbow is still bothering him.

    • Daryl Peek

      Up in the air on that. I just don’t see Marshall starting over Blake if he’s kept. MDA trust Blake too much. Farmar will cannibalize Marshall’s minutes also. Blake to GS is what I’m keeping my eye on.

      • Gregory Choa

        Exactly…and with Farmar on the verge of an imminent return himself, and with Marshall’s somewhat serendipitous emergence, I can definitely see the Lakers looking to move Blake and his contract…which is too bad, because I really like Steve, who has been much maligned (most of it unjustly) during his tenure with the Lakers.

          Who has maligned Blake?

        Good call, good call.
