Gasol, Bynum sidelined

Pau Gasol and fellow 7-footer Andrew Bynum were scratched from tonight’s exhibition against the Denver Nuggets at the Honda Center. Gasol sat out for the fifth consecutive game because of a strained right hamstring. He had hoped to play tonight, but Lakers coach Phil Jackson and the athletic training staff decided against it. Bynum suffered a right rotator cuff injury during the Lakers’ victory Tuesday over the Golden State Warriors. Gasol also won’t play tonight against the Nuggets in San Diego. Bynum’s status was day-to-day.
