Why @Phoenix? I feel like his return should be at home... It's Phoenix after all and they're still missing Gortat last I heard. We should be able to beat them with Nash/Howard. Gasol back against Washington would make more sense. Home. Washington sucks.

You bring him back as soon as he is cleared to play no matter who the opponent is.

Agreed. He needs time to get back in shape and rhythm, as well as get back on the same page as his teammates. The sooner the better.

I suppose so.

Especially with the way we're limited now. I guess I thought he'd either come back before or after the Phoenix game. Not during it. I don't know where that thought came from, just something that happened.

It simply gives him more time to get in game shape. So, PHX it is.

With the way Clark has flushed down the toilet...we could really use Pau.

But as usual. More often than not you don't miss Pau...you miss the idea of what Pau could be or do. But then he comes back and pulls a casper.

The way Pau was playing before he went down, we could use that for sure. I honestly didn't expect him back until April, so if he comes back this soon that's great news to me.

We need the Pauerful version of Gasol, not the White Swan version.

Here's to hoping he comes back healthy.

Yeah, but if this from today or yesterday, and he's ready to play Monday, you would think a 7-footer would be ready to dunk right?

Gasol is on Lakers' active list but not suiting up tonight. He will play Sunday vs. Sacto or, more likely, Monday at PHX.

Maybe he was just practicing his layups?

You do know that in order to have a good touch around the rim, you need to practice layups, bank shots etc..

If all you do is dunk everything you end up having horrible Kwame Brown level touch around the rim

Good to see him on the active list, finally. He recovered quickly. Pau generally doesn't miss too many games for a big guy.
