Pau Gasol officially starting for Lakers Tuesday night against Bobcats

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

Mike D'Antoni has stated that Pau Gasol will start in tonight's game against the Charlotte Bobcats. How's the big man feeling? Explosive.

We can now turn "expected" into "official", as Mike D'Antoni has stated that Pau Gasol will in fact start for the Los Angeles Lakers tonight as they take on the Charlotte Bobcats. This is coming from Lakers reporter Mike Trudell's Twitter feed as the Lakers morning shoot-around has just begun.


Even better news? Pau Gasol is feeling great and "explosive". Yes, explosive Pau. Of note, Trudell also reveals that Gasol will have no restrictions on his playing time.


This is great news across the board as Pau looked as if he was trying to run through quicksand at times prior to shutting it down to rid his knees of tendinitis. All eyes will certainly be on how Pau performs tonight in Charlotte to see if a rested and tendinitis-free Pau is going to help mold this team. Happy to say, no more updates on this one.
