Pau Gasol: Hamstring improving
It appears that Pau Gasol's injured hamstring is improving. The LAT's Mike Bresnahan reports Gasol was able to finish what Phil Jackson called a "pretty good workout" Tuesday afternoon after shootaround in Oklahoma City, and while he won't play Wednesday- no surprise- Jackson wouldn't eliminate the possibility of a return Friday night at Staples against Memphis.
I still think they'll want to see Gasol practice in full and then recover well the following day before putting him on the floor for a game, but if that can happen this week it opens the door if not for OJ Mayo and Co. perhaps Sunday's game against Chris Paul and the Hornets.
We'll just have to wait and see. (Sound familiar?)
