Looks like Drew and Pau will both miss tomorrow’s match up vs. the Memphis Grizzlies.
L.A. Times: It was a day of medical terms and injury evaluations, a time for the Lakers to take a breath after two overtime road victories and, of greater importance, take stock of their ailing big men.
Andrew Bynum was their latest 7-footer to undergo an MRI exam, the results showing a strained right elbow that left him listed as doubtful for tonight’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies.
Pau Gasol did some work on the practice court Thursday but declared himself out for tonight’s game, unless his strained right hamstring suddenly felt much, much better today.
In other words, DJ Mbenga might start at center. Or if the Lakers go with a small lineup, Lamar Odom might get the call in the middle, with Josh Powell moving into the starting lineup at forward. “Whatever it takes,” Odom said.
