03:05 PM ET 12.04 | Pau Gasol's slow start has many convinced that the 32-year old big man just isn't a good fit for Mike D'Antoni's offensive system. That ultimately may be true, but perhaps the issue is simply that Gasol is not healthy. The Los Angeles Lakers' big man has been battling knee tendonitis all season, and it's gotten bad enough that he has to sit out the team's game against the Houston Rockets on Tuesday. D'Antoni wasn't sure when he would return to the lineup. "We got to get him healthy," D'Antoni said. "Whatever it takes -- one game, two games, 10 games -- I don't know. It's day to day but he's got to be healthy. It wasn't fair (to him). He's trying to battle through some stuff and in this league, you just can't do that."

Pau, should know there's about 4 other contending teams who would gladly take him off Kobe's hands. Nothing for nothing, Pau can still help other teams win. Isn't Kobe the one who saved Pau from being traded last year?!

yes, exactly which makes the other comments null n void! smh Jus cuz sum spend all their time hating on the Lakers doesn't mean they understand wut this team needs & how they should operate!

I am a Lakers fan. I love Pau. I love him to join the Heat, via trade for Bosh. C'mon Heat won without defensive Center, between Pau and Bosh, i think Pau with his height is more "defensive". And the Heat needs a low-post scorer, to attract defender, to free up shooter Allen and Lewis.
I am hating Lakers management now, and D'Antoni for benching him, and Kobe ranting about him. As if Kobe wins without a talented big. And they don't have a clue if D12 will stay after this season. ****& it Lakers, got your **** together.
