If the Los Angeles Lakers are looking for some inspiration to remain positive after losing another key player, all they'll need to do is look across the TD Garden court Thursday night.
Pau Gasol is out indefinitely and Dwight Howard likely will miss a fourth straight game as the Lakers seek a seventh victory in eight tries when they face the surging Boston Celtics, who have won five straight since Rajon Rondo's season-ending injury.
Howard's sore right shoulder resulting from a partially torn labrum has kept him on the sidelines for the team's current three-game winning streak as Los Angeles (23-26) attempts to get into the Western Conference playoff picture.
The Lakers suffered another injury setback, though, as Gasol felt a pop in his right foot during Tuesday's 92-83 win at Brooklyn and was diagnosed with a torn plantar fascia after an MRI in Boston on Wednesday.
Kobe Bryant, who scored 21 points versus the Nets, has been more of a distributor during the t...

Injuries continue to plague the Lakers big men this season. Pau Gasol will be out 6-8 weeks after suffering a partial tear of his plantar fascia. The injury happened late in the fourth quarter Tuesday night as the Lakers matched up against the Nets. The Lakers are already without the services of back up forward Jordan Hill and Dwight Howard who missed his third game in a row because...
So, the Lakers enter tonight's game without Pau Gasol. Pretty sweet, right? Not quite.
Ever since Mike D'Antoni replaced Mike Brown as the coach of the purple and gold, Gasol has been on the outside looking in. In one of the most confusing and indefensible moves in recent memory, D'Antoni had the guy coming off the bench. He has, understandably, not been happy with his...
Well, the hardships of this season just continue to pile up for the Lakers. Forward Pau Gasol left yesterday’s game with an apparent right foot injury, and the news is not good.
Gasol's Lakers future is, most likely, in a ton of jeopardy at the moment
The 2012-13 season has been a disaster in many ways for the Los Angeles Lakers.
First off, and most prevalent, is their record of 23-26 which is awful by Lakers standards and is completely not indicative of how talented they actually are. Secondly, they traded for Dwight Howard AND Steve Nash...
