HOUSTON With the tendinitis in his knees that has bothered him since the preseason showing no signs of abating, Pau Gasol has decided to sit out for an undisclosed number of games.
It doesnt sound as though it will be a short sabbatical for the Lakers power forward.
The day to day terminology is pretty funny, but well see, Gasol said before the Lakers played the Houston Rockets on Tuesday at Toyota Center. Im not guessing that its going to be two days and the knees are going to feel wonderful all of a sudden. That would be kind of unrealistic.
