Still battling the upper respiratory infection that kept him out versus the Golden State Warriors last week, Pau Gasol will not travel with the team today as the Lakers prepare for their Friday night matchup versus the Utah Jazz.

It is unknown whether Gasol will play as he is listed as day-to-day, but at the very least will not be with the team when they land in Utah later this evening.

It’s disappointing news for the Lakers as they look to snap a three game losing streak.  Battling an array of injuries and inconsistent play, the purple and gold are 4-8 in December.  We’ll have more news on Gasol’s status for tomorrow as we receive it.
