Lakers News: Pau Gasol to Play Thursday vs. Miami Heat

Pau Gasol will make his return to the lineup tonight when the Lakers take on the Miami Heat at the Staples Center. However, we won’t see Gasol in the starting lineup as we’re accustomed to, according to Beto Duran of ESPN Los Angeles.

It will be nice having Gasol back on the floor, but with D’Antoni choosing to bring him off the bench some questions have arisen. What is the reason for Pau being used as a reserve rather than a starter? Once again, Duran has the quote from D’Antoni.

Don’t expect this to be a permanent shift, though, as D’Antoni expects Gasol to be back in the starting lineup on Sunday.

Earl Clark will start in place of Gasol on Thursday, as he hopes to celebrate his 25th birthday with a victory over the defending NBA champions.
