The injuries continue to pile up for the Los Angeles Lakers with Pau Gasol being the latest player to go down. Gasol suffered an injury in the loss to the Los Angeles Clippers and underwent an MRI on Monday to assess the damage. The injury wasn't deemed severe and as a result the veteran forward has been listed as a game-time decision against the Cleveland Cavaliers according to Dave McMenamin of on Jan. 13:

"Pau Gasol was diagnosed with a moderate strain of the big toe on his L foot. He'll be a game-time decision against Cleveland."

Gasol has dealt with a fair share of injuries this season, but has been the one star on the team able to stay on the floor more than most of his teammates.

Along with Gasol being a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Cavs, Xavier Henry will miss the next two games due to soreness in his right knee. Henry suffered a bone bruise in his knee on Dec. 29 against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Jordan Farmar and Steve Blake are also on the shelf due to injuries.

Fortunately, Bryant and Nash may return at the end of the month. Head coach Mike D'Antoni are hopeful Nash and Bryant get back on the floor on Jan. 28 against the Indiana Pacers.
