There were a couple of health notes before tonight’s game against Minnesota.
First, Pau Gasol said he was “good to go” after missing practice because of a case of tonsillitis Thursday. Gasol said he came down with inflamed tonsils after the Lakers’ victory Tuesday over the Kings in Sacramento.
Second, Luke Walton said he participated in a 4-on-4 scrimmage recently, but there is no timetable for his return to a full practice. He has been limited to 24 games this season because of a pinched nerve in his back.
Third, Ron Artest (sprained left thumb) asked out of an attempt at the world record for the most consecutive free throws by two people in one minute. Instead, Shannon Brown will join Lamar Odom in the attempt at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at the Fan Jam at the Convention Center.
