The Lakers say they still have no idea when Pau Gasol might make his season debut. He sat out tonight for the third consecutive game because of a strained right hamstring. He said he would join the team for its trip to play at Oklahoma City on Tuesday and Houston on Wednesday. He also said of his injury, “It’s not going away. We didn’t anticipate that it was going to be that way. So, it was hard for a few days, but I accepted it. Now I’m doing what it takes to get back. I wasn’t thinking it would be that bad, but it turned out to be that way. … Maybe it was an isolated play that could happen to anybody.”
