Gasol sits out again

Pau Gasol’s strained right hamstring is still causing him trouble. He didn’t practice today and isn’t likely to play Friday night against the Dallas Mavericks. Are the Lakers worried? Not hardly. “Maybe Sunday,” Lakers coach Phil Jackson said when asked when Gasol might make his season debut. “We’re not worry about this. We’re just taking it real slow. Don’t you worry about it either.” The Lakers play host to the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday.
