Beyond The Buzzer:
With the news coming out that Pau Gasol will miss at least 6 weeks with a partially torn plantar fascia, Kobe Bryant says the Lakers need to have a sense of urgency – and that starts with Dwight Howard playing through the pain.
According to ESPN:
“We don’t have time for (Howard’s shoulder) to heal,” Bryant said Wednesday in an exclusive interview with ESPNBoston.com’s Jackie MacMullan. “We need some urgency.”
The interview with MacMullan came one day after Bryant publicly challenged Howard, stating that playing through an injury is “something that you have to balance out and manage.”
The Lakers are hopeful Gasol’s injury will prompt Howard to return “sooner than later,” a team source told ESPNLosAngeles.com.
