Lakers' Howard, Gasol out with injuries

The SportsXchange

Los Angeles Lakers stars Dwight Howard and Paul Gasol are out indefinitely with injuries, the team announced Monday.

Howard has a torn labrum and will be re-evaluated in a week. Gasol has a concussion.

Neither player traveled with the team to Houston for Tuesday's game against the Rockets. The Lakers also play at the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday.

Howard aggravated his right shoulder during Sunday's loss to the Denver Nuggets.

Despite the injury, Howard played 41 minutes and had a career-best 26 rebounds and scored 14 points with four blocks.

Howard originally hurt the shoulder in the second half of the Lakers' loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday.

Gasol left Sunday's game with 1:05 left in the fourth quarter after taking an elbow from JaVale McGee to his nose.
