Women's World Cup:

Pau Gasol: Will Start In Howard's Absence

Update: Gasol will return to the starting lineup Friday with Dwight Howard (shoulder) out, the Associated Press reports.

Recommendation: Gasol had his right foot worked on by trainers after Wednesday's game, but it sounds like a non-issue. Look for Gasol to head back to the bench when Howard returns, but in the meantime, Gasol may see more run than the 30.0 minutes he's averaged in his last five games.
