Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol injured, out indefinitely for Lakers

Because Kobe Bryant needed an excuse to take more shots…

The Lakers will be without big men Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol and Jordan Hill on a two game, back-to-back road trip against Houston and San Antonio this week, but it could be more — both starters are listed as out “indefinitely.” Howard is out at least a week with a shoulder injury and Gasol has a concussion and he will need to be cleared by a league neurologist before he can play again.

The Lakers announced this after cancelling practice Monday because… well, what was the point?

Howard had played through shoulder pain recently and an MRI Monday revealed a torn labrum, tweets Lakers reporter Mike Trudell. He will sit out a week (which means he misses the Thunder game at Staples on Friday) and will then be re-evaluated. (Jason Smith of the Hornets missed two weeks with this.)
