Gimpy Gasol May Miss Season Opener

Pau’s hamstring could have him watching the game in street clothes come next Tuesday: “He went through a light practice Wednesday but felt pain in the hamstring Thursday morning and was ruled out of exhibition games Thursday and today against the Denver Nuggets. He will have missed the Lakers’ last six exhibition games. Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said it ‘could be’ possible that Gasol missed the season opener next Tuesday against the Clippers. ‘He had some questions about how it felt after a limited practice,’ Jackson said. ‘To alleviate the response that he had, we just thought it was probably best to back off … Whether he makes it or doesn’t make it, I’m not worried,’ Jackson said. ‘That doesn’t worry me.”‘
