Against Oklahoma City Tuesday night, Pau Gasol played 42 minutes. Against Minnesota it was 49 in an overtime game. In the Lakers' last 10 games, Pau Gasol has averaged 42 minutes a contest.
That is coming off a summer where Gasol played for his native Spain in the Olympics. With a playoffs coming where the Lakers will need a 100% Gasol, are the Lakers wearing him down now and asking too much of him?
