08:04 AM ET 02.28 | The Lakers may be inching toward seeing the roster they'd hoped to have healthy all season. Pau Gasol has made progress in his return from a torn plantar fascia in his right foot when he was cleared Tuesday to start working out. Gasol got the green light to start using an elliptical machine from Dr. Steven Yoon after having an ultrasound on his foot. Despite the news, Coach Mike D'Antoni said the team has not move up the timetable for Gasol's return. Gasol, who got off his crutches three after suffering the injury, is expected to be sidelined for another three weeks. "I don't think it's moved up," D'Antoni said, "but he's doing well." The Lakers have gone 5-4 in Gasol's absence.

Time to man up Pau. Dwight is playing w/ a torn labrum. Nash is playing w/ a bad back. And Kobe has been playing w/ a broken finger...put your big boy pants on and play w/ your injury...hehehe! Fanatics would love these comments...

Take your time Pau. You've already contributed to two titles for the Lakers. Dwight and Nash still have to prove themselves so they have to be on the floor. Kobe plays hurt because, well... He's Kobe.

It's always the Clevelanders having the nightly meltdowns. During the day it's another Clevelander ranting. I think they must have too many chemicals leaking into the water there.

Nah, all those chemicals burned off when the river was on fire.
