  The news isn't good for Pau Gasol and the Lakers: Los Angeles' center has a partial tear of his plantar fascia and he'll miss at least six weeks, according to CBS Sports' Ken Berger.  Gasol is expected to get a second opinion in the next few days, and he'll meet with the Lakers' team doctor and a specialist. Gasol injured his right foot in the Lakers' Tuesday night win over the Brooklyn Nets. He headed to the locker room in the fourth quarter after playing 34 minutes. Earl Clark is now a must-own player in all leagues, especially with Dwight Howard still out due to a shoulder injury.
