Pau Gasol will sit out tonight’s game against the Houston Rockets, due to tendinitis in his knees.

Pau has struggled lately, even sitting out the final minutes of Sunday night’s loss to the Magic. It appears the tendinitis has finally caught up to him, and he is going to take a couple of games off to recover.

Does tendinitis account for Gasol’s struggles? Or is something else also going on? Will playing Jamison with the starters help the Lakers in D’Antoni’s system?
