Default Gasol playing Wednesday

Quote:
The Lakers expect to have forward/center Pau Gasol return to their lineup Wednesday when they host the Portland Trail Blazers at Staples Center.

Both Gasol and Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said at today's practice that Gasol will probably play after missing nine games with a sprained left ankle. Jackson said if Gasol is ready to play, he will start.

Gasol participated in the entire practice today with the team and said he would watch for swelling overnight.

The Lakers are 5-4 in his absence and have dropped to the third in the Western Conference standings. The Lakers currently are in first place in the Pacific division with the same record (50-24) as the Phoenix Suns, but the Lakers have the tiebreaker.

Also, Lakers center Andrew Bynum ran on the court for the first time today since injuring his left knee in January. He is expected to resume traveling with the team soon, although no date has been penciled for his return.

The Lakers have eight games left in the regular season.

Remember when MBenga and Turiaf got in foul trouble and Mimsee had to play a few minutes....well I hope that occurs with Bynum , it would be nice to see him out there and would not be so bad for team moral...

Im not saying give em major minutes or anything... just a few posessions or something

I hope Bynum does get 5 minutes in.. just to get the moral up for a short stint. That would make the fans go nuts and the other teams coach get an ulcer!
Seeing Bynum in the lineup returning is what no one wants to see!
