Knee problems keep Gasol on sideline

The SportsXchange

Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol remained sidelined because of tendinitis in both knees for Friday's game against Oklahoma City.

Gasol had sat out the previous two games with knee pain that has persisted since training camp.

"He's not ready yet," Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni said. "He's getting better."

D'Antoni said a Sunday return against Utah could be possible for Gasol.

"I don't know," he said. "As soon as he gets able to play, then he'll go. That can be any day."

Gasol is averaging 12.6 points and 8.8 rebounds per game.

"We're trying to do what we can to try and get me healthy as soon as possible," Gasol said.
