Lakers’ Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol, Jordan Hill Out With Injuries

NBA: Houston Rockets at Los Angeles LakersWhen it rains, it pours. The Lakers are 15-18 and it can’t get any worse, right? Right?

Here’s a Lakers press release telling us that, yes, it can get worse. Laker frontcourt members Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol, and Jordan Hill are all injured.

Howard, who originally injured his right shoulder Friday night against the Clippers and re-aggravated his shoulder last night, was examined today by team doctor Steve Lombardo. An MRI exam revealed that he has a torn labrum and will be out indefinitely; he will travel with the team this week to Houston and San Antonio and will receive treatment from the team’s training staff. He will be re-examined in a week.

Gasol, who suffered a blow to the face in the fourth quarter of last night’s game, was examined by neurologist Dr. Vern Williams. Tests determined that he has a concussion. He will not travel with the team, and will be out indefinitely.

Hill suffered an injury to his right hip in last night’s game and will be examined today by Dr. Lombardo. Results of the examination will be released later today.

A week sounds very, very optimistic. Obviously, we won’t know the full timetable until he gets re-examined. While he hasn’t been exactly the Dwight Howard that he was in Orlando, he hasn’t been exactly all that great, either, even with the gaudy stats. However, a torn labrum is no joke. MagicBasketball.Net writer Eddy Rivera remembers the time when Jameer Nelson suffered a torn labrum in 2009.

Four months. It took him four months to recover. So there’s a possibility that Dwight Howard could be out for the rest of the season. That’s definitely not good news and that’s definitely not what the Lakers want. And with Dwight Howard’s upcoming free agency, the Lakers are skating on thin ice.

Pau Gasol was elbowed in the face and suffered a bloody nose in last night’s contest against Denver. As mentioned, he’ll be out indefinitely. He’ll have to pass concussion tests before he gets cleared to play again. Gasol will miss the short two-game Texas road trip.

Jordan Hill was said to be out with a hip injury. He is also not making the road trip.

With all of these frontcourt guys out, Robert Sacre, who was sent down to the D-League a couple of days ago, will be brought back up and will likely start at center for the Lakers. The strange (yet underachieving) Lakers sesaon continues to roll.

Like I said, when it rains, it pours. But, at least, the Lakers are having some fun?
