Report: Pau Gasol out against Rockets with tendinitis
Lakers big man Pau Gasol will not play Tuesday night against the Rockets, reports the Houston Chronicle's Jonathan Feigen via Twitter:
Gasol has dealt with injuries all season and is averaging a career-low 12.6 points per game.
There is speculation that the Lakers may be looking to trade Gasol. This is his 12th season in the league, and Gasol has $19.3 million on his contract for next year. He has seen his minutes decline since Mike D'Antoni took over as coach in November: Under Mike Brown and Bernie Bickerstaff, he averaged 37.2 minutes per game; in D'Antoni's first six games, Gasol has played 31.8 minutes per game.
