Pau Gasol, who missed the second half of last Sunday’s win against the Magic and last nights win against the Knicks, will not travel with the Los Angeles Lakers on their mini road trip to Milwaukee and Minnesota.
Pau Gasol, who missed the 2nd half on Sun. + the game on Tues. due to vertigo, will not make the trip to MIL and MIN.

Gasol went to the locker room on Sunday against the Magic before halftime and didn’t return in what most people believed to be a “Tanking Decision”. However, it turned out that the injury was a bit more serious as Gasol was suffering from Vertigo. Anyone who has experience Vertigo will understand that it can be very difficult to do any sort of active task and would be nearly impossible to play with.
With only a few games left in the Lakers season it wouldn’t be surprising for the team, who has nothing to play for at this point, to sit Gasol for the rest of the season, where he would join Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash. However, for now the Lakers are simply keeping Gasol at home for this mini road trip.
