According to Lakers.com, Pau Gasol has not been cleared to return from a concussion he sustained Sunday night against the Denver Nuggets.
Gasol will be reevaluated Friday morning before the Lakers host the Oklahoma City Thunder. The forward/center has already missed 10 games this season, eight with knee tendinitis.
The league has a stringent concussion policy and while Gasol has shown improvement, "he is still not cleared to play basketball," according to the website. Gasol was examined by Dr. Vern Williams.
Additionally, Dwight Howard is scheduled to be reevaluated next week and will miss Friday night's game against the Thunder with a shoulder injury.
