Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol will not play Tuesday night against the Houston Rockets due to tendonitis in both knees, according to a tweet from ESPN Los Angeles' Dave McMenamin. His replacement in the starting lineup is unknown at this time.
Gasol has dealt with the injuries all season and it has shown in his production. Gasol is averaging a career-low 12.6 points per game and shooting a career-low 42 percent from the field as the Lakers went from a Mike Brown system that fit his skill-set perfectly to a Mike D'Antoni offense that has Gasol still trying to figure out where he can be effective.
