Drew and Pau are out tonight, as well.
L.A. Times: Because the healing process has been slow, Lakers center Andrew Bynum and forward Pau Gasol will miss another game.
Neither was able to practice Saturday and neither will play tonight when the Lakers face the struggling New Orleans Hornets at Staples Center.
Bynum will miss his second consecutive game because of a strained right elbow.
Gasol will miss his seventh consecutive game because of a strained right hamstring.
“Hopefully, I can make it back by Thursday,” Bynum said. “It’s just a waiting game, really. I don’t know, man. Just doing some treatment, doing a little bit of things, but it’s basically got to heal up.”
Bynum said that pain in his triceps is the issue, and because of that, he’s unable to use his forearm to hold off an opponent by using the arm to push out.
“I can come in real fast, but just to go out [is a problem],” Bynum said. “But that’s my ‘hold’ position. I’ve got to box out. I’ve got to push people. I’ve got to do all that stuff.”
