Is Pau Gasol done in Los Angeles? The Lakers' forward is sidelined for now with knee tendinitis, but many believe he will be traded in the not-too-distant future. The team is off to an 8-10 start, and Gasol has struggled in Mike D'Antoni's offense. While Los Angeles hopes Steve Nash's return steadies the ship, Gasol's future remains in doubt. In the meantime, here are some photos of Gasol.
