Some good news on Pau Gasol!
L.A. Times: Finally some good news for the Lakers in regards to a hamstring and Pau Gasol.
“He worked pain-free today,” Coach Phil Jackson said Wednesday. “So that’s nice to know.”
It wasn’t an on-court workout, and a basketball wasn’t involved, but the Lakers’ forward-center wasn’t sore after doing abdominal and other strengthening exercises with trainers.
Gasol sat out his second consecutive game because of a strained left hamstring and said he won’t play Friday at Portland.
He’s back . . . maybe
Lamar Odom broke free of a lengthy slump by getting close to a triple-double Tuesday against Houston, but Jackson cut off a reporter’s question about it.
“Don’t start predicting things,” he said. “That’s not good.”
In other words, one game does not a trend make.
