The Lakers have listed Pau Gasol’s playing status as doubtful for Tuesday’s game against the New York Knicks after spending Sunday night in a hospital and being diagnosed with vertigo.

An MRI showed that Gasol’s head feels normal after experiencing dizziness that kept him out of the second half of the Lakers’ win Sunday over the Orlando Magic at Staples Center. Though Gasol was released from the hospital, he will have a follow up examination on Monday.
