Gasol, Bynum will play Tuesday night against Utah
"He came in this morning and, you know, is feeling fine and ready to go," Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said Tuesday. "Obviously, we'll watch him closely but right now he says he feels okay."
An MRI exam Monday revealed that Gasol had a bone bruise on his right knee. Gasol's right kne buckled after he was fouled by Nuggets center Nene.
Bynum was hit on his right knee by a tumbling Lamar Odom in the fourth quarter against Denver.
As an insurance policy, rookie Derrick Caracter was recalled from the Bakersfield Jam of the Development League. He will be sent back down later this week, in time for the Development League playoffs, Jackson said.
