Join Times Lakers writer Mike Bresnahan at 11 a.m. today for a live video chat about the Lakers.
"The Lakers have played the last couple of games without Pau Gasol and Kobe Bryant, and are awaiting their return. As Ben Bolch wrote about Gasol earlier this week,
"The wait for Pau Gasol continues.
"After his plans to play against Phoenix on Monday had to be scrapped because he experienced soreness in his recovering right foot, the veteran Lakers forward said Sunday he was no longer publicly targeting a specific game for his return.
"I don't want to put any dates out there, so there are no disappointments or surprises," he said.
"Gasol said foot specialist Kenneth Jung told him the discomfort he experienced Saturday while playing two-on-two at the Lakers' practice facility was to be expected as he increased the intensity in his return from the tear inside the bottom of the foot he suffered early last month.
"It's a pretty normal reaction from the injury that I had," Gasol said."
