Pau Gasol could return Dec. 22 vs. Golden State. He said he's doubtful Sunday vs. Philly & questionable next Tues vs. Charlotte— Mark Medina (@MedinaLakersNBA) December 14, 2012
Pau Gasol said he has over 3 days gotten basically pain-free in his knees on treadmill work.— KEVIN DING (@KevinDing) December 14, 2012
17-year vet Kobe, who played 88 min in 26 hours, asked to stay in to start 4th when D'Antoni asked if he needed rest. Kobe isn't normal.— Mike Trudell (@LakersReporter) December 15, 2012
And Kobe (back spasms) played the entire second half for the second consecutive night for the Lakers.— KEVIN DING (@KevinDing) December 15, 2012
Asked Kobe after the game how he felt having played so much: "I'm not tired. I'm sore ... But I'm in really, really good condition."— Mike Trudell (@LakersReporter) December 15, 2012
Kobe said he's seen Steve Nash trying his best to "keep it in," the frustration with being out building and building.— Mike Trudell (@LakersReporter) December 15, 2012
Bryant was encouraged that Nash is finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel, as he plans to practice next week.— Mike Trudell (@LakersReporter) December 15, 2012
Mike D'Antoni hardly sounded thrilled with the win over Wizards— Mark Medina (@MedinaLakersNBA) December 15, 2012
D'Antoni will take the victory but said Lakers are "not even close to being a good team."— KEVIN DING (@KevinDing) December 15, 2012
D'Antoni said the team absolutely needed a victory, but the effort was still not good enough for a full 48 minutes. Long ways to go.— Mike Trudell (@LakersReporter) December 15, 2012
JODIE MEEKS IS AMAZING!!— Metta World Peace (@MettaWorldPeace) December 15, 2012
