L.A. Times: A day later, Pau Gasol felt fine.
Good enough to practice, anyway.
Gasol went through a full workout with the Lakers the morning after collecting 10 points, seven assists and six rebounds in a 104-91 victory Wednesday night against Portland.
He played almost 32 minutes against the Trail Blazers after sitting out nine games because of a sprained left ankle.
“I think he looked great,” Kobe Bryant said. “He gave us a one-two punch. Everybody out here in L.A. knows you’ve got to have a one-two punch. That’s how you win championships. You don’t win it with one superstar alone.
“When ‘Drew [Bynum] comes back, we’ll have a left hook, left jab, right jab, right cross and then hit them with a left hook.”
Bynum will travel for a two-game trip beginning Sunday in Sacramento but was not expected to play until the last game or two of the regular season, General Manager Mitch Kupchak said earlier this week.
Bynum has missed 39 games since sustaining a briefly dislocated left kneecap and a bone bruise on his knee in a Jan. 13 game against Memphis.
