Just one day after the Philadelphia 76ers lost Thaddeus Young for about a month, the Los Angeles Lakers will be without Pau Gasol for at least the month of February. Last night against the Brooklyn Nets, Gasol went to jump to defend a Brook Lopez shot, but got no lift and went down grabbing his foot. He stayed in the game the next possession, but you could tell he was injured. The Lakers power forward went straight to the locker room and was seen leaving the game on crutches. It turns out that he strained or might have even torn his plantar fasciitis.  The Lakers are already under .500 and are playing without Dwight Howard at the moment who is also injured. If you didn't own Earl Clark before, you better go pick him up now!Earl Clark (34% Yahoo, 41.5% ESPN, 73% CBS) has been a valuable fantasy player for the past 30 days now, but has just jumped to must own status!  He is averaging 13.8 points and 10.4 rebounds over his last 5 games after averaging 10 points and 8.4 rebounds during the entire month of January.  The Lakers are short handed, and Clark has been their most consistent player.  It turns out that he, not Antawn Jamison was that guy who flourishd under Mike D'Antoni (Shawn Marion, Joe Johnson, etc.).Read the Thaddeus Young post for the guys to go after to replace Pau Gasol.
