Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni said it's possible Pau Gasol will play Sunday against Sacramento, but more likely Monday when the Lakers travel to Phoenix.
D'Antoni also suggested he will use Gasol differently whenever he fully heals from a torn plantar fascia in his right foot, an injury that has sidelined him for 18 games.
"He's going to be a starter at some point and is going to be a big part of what we do," D'Antoni said. "Whether it's the first day, fifth day or 10th day, I don't know.
"It depends on his conditioning."
Gasol is needed now more than ever in LA, and probably your fantasy team if you drafted him. I wouldn't have too high of hopes for him when he gets back, but he should be worth a look in daily leagues.
