Bynum, Gasol to Miss Sunday Night Game

Broderick Turner of the LA Times reports tonight that neither Andrew Bynum nor Pau Gasol will play against the New Orleans Hornets on Sunday. Both still are feeling pain from their injuries and were unable to practice on Saturday. Gasol has not seen game action in almost a month. He last played on October 9th, in a preseason game against Golden State.

Like the Memphis Grizzlies, the Hornets have a pair of big men who can score, in Emeka Okafor and David West. They're both off to strong starts this season. DJ Mbenga will presumably start once again, with Josh Powell seeing significant minutes off the bench.

Phil Jackson did sound a note of confidence about Bynum's and Gasol's eventual recoveries:

"We have a three-day break after the game on Sunday and I can't see any reason why this should be that extended that it would go on past that time."
