Default Pau Gasol may not be back until playoff picture is clear

As if the Lakers can absorb more bad news.

Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni suggested Pau Gasol won't return in the regular season after nursing torn plantar fascia in his right foot for the past three weeks.

"By the time he gets back, we'll be in or out," D'Antoni said. "His impact will be in the playoffs if we get there."

The Lakers (28-29) have 25 games remaining before the regular season ends April 17 against the Houston Rockets. After their 103-99 victory Sunday over the Dallas Mavericks, the Lakers remain 2 games behind the Houston Rockets (31-27) for the eighth playoff spot.

"I don't think anyone on this team is counting the days for Pau to come back because we don't have time," Lakers guard Steve Nash said. "Although we'd welcome him back this instance, we have to move on and try to win games without him."

I didn't expect him back for the regular season either. He'd be a tremendous help in the playoffs though.

we need him back badly. last night vs Dallas it was really bad. Howard comitted 2 bad fouls early and our defense was gone. Our offense works as long as Kobe is doing it all and works well with Nash. Metta and Dwight were really awful on O. we need Pau as second option on O, because you cant give Dwight the ball in the 4th. he is not efficient with his moves and when his moves work the foul him. but Dwight played hard on D but even he couldnt help all other 4 guys.

The Lakers need him back, but only if he's healthy. I'd rather not have him trying to come back too soon.
