Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol, and Jordan Hill all injured for Lakers

This Los Angeles Lakers season is looking more and more like a nightmare. Just one day after a disheartening loss to the Denver Nuggets with a full strength team, the Lakers will head out on a road trip with their three best frontcourt players out due to injury, the team announced Monday afternoon.

Center Dwight Howard suffered a torn labrum in his shoulder, while power forward Pau Gasol suffered a concussion late in the 4th quarter after an inadvertent elbow to the nose by the Nuggets' JaVale McGee. And as if losing their entire starting frontcourt wasn't enough, primary backup Jordan Hill also suffered an injury to his right hip in the game.

CBS' Ken Berger tweets that neither Howard nor Gasol will be with the team for their texas road trip, where they'll play Houston and San Antonio this week. While the full results of Hill's examination have yet to be released, the Lakers have classified both Howard and Gasol as being out "indefinitely."

The injures mean power forward Antawn Jamison and center Robert Sacre will move to the starting lineup.
