Pau Gasol to Return Tonight

Gasol’s hammy feels well enough for him to suit up against the Clip Show: “When he was done, Gasol said he plans to play tonight against the Clippers in the Lakers’ home game at Staples Center. Gasol’s workout at the Lakers’ practice facility Thursday and his workouts before games in San Antonio on Tuesday and in Dallas on Wednesday left him pain-free. ‘Obviously after a little tear, you feel scar tissue that is built there,’ Gasol said. ‘But other than that, there’s no pain and I trust that I can be out there playing at my best right now without any danger.”‘
