Pau Gasol was able to shoot and do some on-court drills before the game on Friday, but coach Phil Jackson said he wasn’t optimistic about Gasol (ankle) playing in either of the Lakers upcoming games against Golden State: Sunday in Los Angeles or Monday in Oakland.
“I don’t anticipate he’ll play in the Golden State games. I’d like him to. I think that would be a good opponent for him … but that might be impossible for us to even remotely have that as a possibility,” Jackson said. “But I think in the next week there’s a chance he could come back.”
