Pau Gasol will miss Friday's game against the Mavs, thanks to the same strained hammy that kept him out of the opener. The LAT's Broderick Turner with the report.
The way things are looking, Sunday is probably a long shot as well. Gasol didn't practice Thursday, and the Lakers likely won't let him on the floor until he gets at least one full speed run under his belt and responds the next day without pain. Hamstrings are too temperamental to mess with. Until then, it's a question of playing the waiting game, which sucks relative to Hungry Hungry Hippos.
