Fox Sports West:
Pau Gasol will not be available for the Lakers on Tuesday night against the Milwaukee Bucks, as he is still trying to recover from the concussion he suffered on Jan. 6 against the Denver Nuggets.
This will be Gasol's 13th missed game this year, fifth with the concussion.
The Lakers expect to start Earl Clark in his place alongside Dwight Howard, who returned on Sunday after being out with a shoulder injury.
Gasol has played in 25 games this season. The Lakers record in that stretch is 12-13 (48), better than the team's overall 16-21 (43.2) on the season.
Gasol will be re-evaluated throughout the week.
The Miami Heat will visit Staples Center on Thursday before the Lakers head out on a three-game road trip.

Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak said the Lakers are considering applying for a disabled players exception for Jordan Hill.

Numbers-wise hes been even better than the always-energized...

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Dwight Howard had 22 points and 14 rebounds in his return from a three-game injury absence, and the Los Angeles Lakers snapped their six-game losing streak with a 113-93 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday night.

Even before Dwight Howard returned from injury, Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni was looking for a fresh start for his team.
The Lakers may have gotten that with Howard's help, but a lackluster performance against the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night could lead to some of the same feelings that were generated during a lengthy skid.
After a sixth straight loss Friday...
It was probably only a matter of time before the Los Angeles Lakers got healthy and figured it out.
Tuesday night, the Milwaukee Bucks just happened to be in their way.
A sluggish offensive night, missed free throws and turnovers gave the Bucks little chance to compete with a Lakers group that seems to be hitting their stride.
Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard combined for 62 points...

Coach Mike D'Antoni will continue to have Kobe Bryant defend opposing point guards.
