The Lakers have lost 32-year old Pau Gasol for at least six weeks due to a partial tear of his plantar fascia, and maybe three months (which would end his season). Gasol has played in 36 games (29 starts) for the Lakers so far this year and he is averaging 33.4 minutes, 13.4 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.3 blocked shots per game. 25-year old Earl Clark will continue to start at power forward for the Lakers and he is likely to see a bump in P.T. Clark has played in 26 games (13 starts) for the Lakers so far this year and he is averaging 21.1 minutes, 7.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game. He is also shooting well as he is 14 of 29 (48.3%) from three point range so far this year. Clark has turned into quite a find for the Lakers as he was thought to be nothing more than a throw in when they got him as part of the return in the Dwight Howard deal last summer. 36-year old Antawn Jamison is also likely to see a bump in P.T. Jamison has played in 43 games (6 starts) for the Lakers so far this year and he is averaging 20.5 minutes, 8.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game.
