WASHINGTON -- Pau Gasol apparently knows the NFL injury-report guidelines pretty well.
Using the standard created for pro football players, the Lakers forward declared himself doubtful for Sunday's game against Philadelphia, questionable for next Tuesday against Charlotte and probable Dec. 22 against Golden State.
In other words, it looks like at least another week before he returns from tendinitis in his knees.
As much as I thought I'd never say this, I can't wait until he comes back. Crappy or not he's still a good basketball player with a high IQ. We need as much help as we can get right now.
