Pau GasolFor the second consecutive game, Lakers center Pau Gasol will sit out with an upper-respiratory infection, according to the LA Daily News. Gasol will likely be listed as day-to-day for the upcoming contests as head coach Mike D’Antoni feels that Gasol is getting better and should be ready soon.

“He feels better,” D’Antoni said of Gasol. “I would think next game he would be ready.”

Gasol was bothered with a respiratory infection at the beginning of the season that lasted a little over two weeks. This is the second time that Gasol has contracted the infection this season. The Lakers have not won a game with Gasol out of the lineup.

The Lakers other injured big, Chris Kaman, is still a game time decision as he’s dealing with a sprained ankle. However, D’Antoni expects Kaman to be able to go tonight.

“That’s encouraging,” But D’Antoni said of Kaman. “He did his stuff. He should be okay. But he’ll warm up tonight and we’ll find out.”

Even if Kaman is ready to go, Jordan Hill is likely to start at center tonight according to the report. With the injury report in flux, D’Antoni has had to constantly shift lineups to find some working rotations.

The 76ers will be the first of a four-game home stretch for the Lakers.

    Wouldn’t expect less but hopefully Kaman gets some playtime if the coach plays him aside of his ankle discomfort.

  • LakersHeatBeef

    Not good news at all.

  • jeremy

    with the way things are going it be great to have kaman play, but it might be safe to sit him so he cant risk a big injury. but if he does play lakers need to limit his min to say no more then 25

  • LakersHeatBeef

    What can the Lakers FO do to fix this team?

    • jeremy

      take risk tell coach stop starting Williams.tell him to wake up and use marshall. there really nothing we can do in a trade to improve much.. lakers just need to play better and use the guys we have and not just waste talent. maybe only thing we can do is just start over and get a new coach.

      • smugbill

        i also wonder why marshall has not seen more time. perhaps the coaches don’t think that he has the right stuff? cousy award winner in college as the best point guard. something wrong somewhere.

        • jeremy

          i dont know but that second unit could use a PG. ball movement surely not as good when farmar goes to the bench. i dont see what 10 to 15 min a game would hurt. Henry can just go back to being meeks back up.

        • jeremy

          also he shown he has skills, he was shinning in the d league and when given big min in the NBA in 3 games he did avg 12 assist a game
