Walton/Gasol Out, Odom Game Time Decision

During his pregame meeting with the media Phil Jackson officially ruled forwards Luke Walton and Pau Gasol out of tonight’s contest against the Charlotte Bobcats.

Walton has been battling a slight hamstring strain, while Gasol has been experiencing minor back pain since early in the week.

Forward Lamar Odom will be a game time decision after suffering shin contusion in Thursday’s win over the Sacramento Kings.
