 EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) - Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol and Jordan Hill all will miss the Los Angeles Lakers' upcoming road trip with injuries, leaving the struggling club without its top three big men.
Howard has a torn labrum in his right shoulder, and Gasol has a concussion after taking an elbow in the face late in Sunday night's loss to Denver. Hill, a key backup to both starting big men, has a right hip injury.
Howard says he won't need surgery, but will sit out for at least a week until his injury is re-evaluated. The Lakers have four games in six days starting Tuesday in Houston.
The Lakers say Gasol and Howard are both out indefinitely.
Hill will be examined by team doctors later Monday.
The star-studded Lakers (15-18) have lost three straight.
