will not travel with the team to Oakland for tonight's game against Golden State, Jackson said, although a return Wednesday against Charlotte or Friday against Memphis appeared possible. Gasol has missed five games because of a sprained left ankle.
Another 7-footer, Chris Mihm
, will begin practicing later this week after reporting no pain since having a screw removed last month from his surgically repaired right foot.
"Everything we've thrown at it so far, there's been no swelling and not anywhere near the same irritation and pain I was getting in my heel like it was for the last year after the major reconstruction," Mihm said.
(left knee) is still at least two weeks away from returning, and Trevor Ariza
(right foot) is not expected back until the playoffs begin.
