The Lakers have just gotten back 32-year old power forward Pau Gasol in a nick of time. Gasol has played in 2 games (both starts) since his return to action and he is averaging 21.5 minutes, 5.5 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game. Gasol has now played in 38 games (31 starts) overall this year for the Lakers and he averaged 32.8 minutes, 12.9 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.3 blocked shots per game. With Kobe Bryant and Metta World Peace down to injury, the Lakers need to play big man ball and pound it inside to Gasol and Dwight Howard.
