Pau Gasol to miss at least two more games due to vertigo

Pau Gasol never came out of the locker room for the second half of the Lakers win Sunday over the Magic, then took three IV bags of fluid and spent the night in the hospital.

The official diagnosis was vertigo, and it kept Gasol out of the Lakers beat down of the Knicks on Tuesday night.

It’s going to keep him out longer, as well.

Announcement: Pro Basketball Talk’s partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $100,000 Fantasy Basketball league for Wednesday night’s games. It’s $25 to join and first prize is $15,000. Starts at 7pm ET on WednesdayHere’s the FanDuel link.

Kevin Ding of Bleacher Report said this on the PBT Podcast back before Christmas and I’ve heard it from other sources since — there is pretty much no chance Gasol is back with the Lakers next season. Despite what Kobe Bryant may want. Both sides are ready to move on and unless the Lakers make a coaching change (very possible) and the new coach lobbies Gasol hard to stay (less likely) and the Lakers offer a better, longer contract than any other team (not likely at all) Gasol will move on.

And likely play much better for another team in another system, one that plays to his strengths.

      If “they are done” then why are you still clicking on Laker stories?

    I hope Pau comes back, but he’ll probably get a better offer somewhere else.

      Pau loves L.A., he ain’t leaving….unless he’s not wanted by the LAKERS anymore. Or, Mike D is still the coach next season.

    “Professor” That name and tuour posts= oxymoron.

    You do know that if you stop responding to the obvious trolling(myself included) that you’ll see less if it, don’t you?

    Why do you and Monetti seem to think you have to resond to every negative lakers posting?

    Come up with a new name, this one doesn’t fit you at all. Gilligan is more apt.

      Yeah, be like billbitely53 and use several different usernames.

    Kb: Do you understand how moronic you look accusing me of multiple names when everyone knows you lost a bet when you used to be lakerluver?
    Now, I’m sure you don’t. You make a foil of yourself daily and it doesn’t seem to faze you.

    As for Gasol. You really think he’s staying, you fool?
    Why would he? They tried to trade him a few years running and are nowhere near contending for a title.
    Pretty sure he’s not taking a cut and doing them a favor. But, you’ve proven you know nothing about basketball, so why wouldnt you think that?

    Honestly hope he does, he’s way past his prime and can’t stay healthy.

    Geez you’re dumb.
