HOUSTON (AP) - Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol will miss Tuesday night's game against Houston because of tendinitis in both knees.
Gasol has dealt with the condition since training camp and says it hasn't ``really improved'' since then, prompting the Lakers to rule him out. Gasol, who is averaging 12.6 points and 8.8 rebounds this season, is listed as day-to-day.
The Lakers began a three-game trip Tuesday and play New Orleans on Wednesday and Oklahoma City on Friday.
Gasol says he doesn't know if he'll play in the next two games.
