Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol and Jordan Hill all out with injuries for the Lakers

Dwight-Howard

More bad news in Laker land. The injury bug has bitten once again. Just two weeks after Steve Nash finally returned tot he court with his teammates, now Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard are out indefinitely.

Dwight Howard suffered a torn labrum in his right shoulder during the Lakers loss to the Nuggets on Sunday. To make matters worse, Pau Gasol and Jordan Hill will also miss time. Pau has a concussion and laceration to his nose suffered during the Denver game when he was hit in the face by Nuggets’ center JaVale McGee. Per the NBA concussion policy, Gasol will miss at least two games and did not travel with the Lakers to Houston.

Hill, whose been one of the Lakers most consistent scores off the bench, has a small tear of the labrum in his left hip. Both he and Dwight are expected to be reevaluated in a week.

If you had to take a guess, which season do you think was worst for Kobe? This season or the season where he was playing with Smush and Kwame?
