3 games from concussion -.-? Was it really that bad?

I really hope Dwight plays.

Mike D'Antoni is GARBAGE.

Dwight better play. We can't give away any more games against bottom feeders (aka "teams like us").

Based on what Dwight said on the road about feeling better and sitting as a precaution, seems fairly likely he'll play, but we'll see.

Worried about DH coming back, I kinda feel like he's rushing back and it might bite him in the rear end later.

Howard did okay, considering he's coming off an injury.

Pau Gasol won't play tomorrow against Milwaukee. Gasol will "probably" be reexamined tomorrow, according to team

At this point, he doesn't change much. If anything he makes us worse. I want Clark to start, and Pau to come off the bench. However, D'Antoni already stated that he would bench Clark when Pau comes back. Clark helps us space the floor better than Pau. When Pau is on the floor with Dwight the floor is so clogged and there is no spacing because Pau's man doesn't usually respect his jump shot. Pau off the bench would be ideal because Pau goes back into the post as the backup center. This would work because instead of playing other starting centers/PF he would be matched up against bench players. I don't think D'Antoni will do this though.. -.-

D'Antoni said today he will not move Gasol to the bench.

For Gasol, it's either he learns to adjust or he's traded. There's no other options. I think he's gone personally but we'll see

^No argument that Gasol's skills have greatly declined and that he needs to find a new "home". But the vitrial for him on this forum is over the top. Without him, the Lakers have 2 fewer championships. Yes, he is grossly overpaid at this point in his career, but most elite athletes are in the latter stages.

I still think this season is lost. So I would bring him back, start him, run a few sets for him highlighting his strengths, and trade him for the best package available. Then let Clark have the starting gig in March, giving him 20 or so games to win the starting job next year.

Ok 1 he has no strengths. There isn't a facet of his game that I would say yes he is very good at that. Only thing he kinda has is his passing ability which is useless if there doubling howard cuz pau can't score. There is nothing to show off. Really playing the guy more is just gonna make is more clear the guy is horrible.

The only thing pau is worth now is a expiring contract. That makes him much much more of worth than anything. Now this value really isn't special until the offseason really. Teams would rather have the guy as little as possible. Best thing we can do is play pau less and focus on clark and hope for the best.

Clark earned his spot by playing much much better than pau has ever this season. He gives 100% effort and works his ass off to get rebounds and play D. Oh and he cant actually hit a mid range jumper. He has shown many times that he is very smart out there too even for a 23 YEAR OLD!!! I cant think of one thing pau can do that clark can't.

Steve Blake had a PRP injection in his groin area last week, hopes to return next week but it's based on pain tolerance. #Lakers

Mike Trudell@LakersReporter
Steve Blake has developed complications to his abdominal injury, located closer to his groin (adductor longus). Had it treated with PRP


Mike Trudell@LakersReporter
Lakers will see how his groin/adductor responds to the PRP treatment in next week or so; if he can play through it, Dr.'s will allow it.


Mike Trudell@LakersReporter
The original problem for Blake was more along the rectus abdominus (abs), which was treated w/surgery & has mostly gotten better.

Can anyone tell me how Hill got injured on his hip? I can recall he mildly sprained his ankle vs the Clippers. Then he got a hip injury all of a sudden?
