We’ve been down this road before with Pau Gasol and it just doesn’t appear to be in the cards this season for him and his owners. Last night disaster struck again in the form of plantar fasciitis, don’t try to pronounce it at home. What is plantar fasciitis? In short, your foot hurts when you have it, that’s all I know. As many of you astute fantasy owners also know by now, Pau may have torn the plantar in the fasciitis which means he could be out up to a month or even more.

Anyway, yes, the usuals, Antawn Jamison is most available out there so go grab him quick. Earl Clark should be owned everywhere by now but if he’s not then go do the needful. No, I’m not Indian but I eat Indian food! Metta World Peace should continue to

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.
Like you needed me to tell you this. But it looks like things between Pau Gasol and Lakers’ head coach, Mike D’Antoni could be close to reaching it’s boiling point. With the NBA’s trade deadline roughly two weeks away, Pau Gasol spoke out on his inevitable return to the Lakers’ bench once Dwight Howard clears from his current shoulder injury.

Who says it never rains in souther California?
It has been discussed ad nauseum that things aren’t working in Los Angeles for the Lakers this season. And Steve Nash has gone as far as to say that things probably won’t get much better in LA this season.
