Returning Pau Gasol to Come Off Bench?
The Lakers will have all five regular starters on the floor Friday when they face Washington at Staples Center. They might not, however, be on the floor at the same time.
Pau Gasol will be play(ing) for the first time since tearing the plantar fascia Feb. 5. He has missed 20 games.
Coach Mike D’Antoni said he had not decided whether Gasol would resumehis spot in the starting line up against the Wizards, but forsees the 7-foot forward back there eventually.
