Lakers' Gasol, Bynum sit vs. Grizzlies

BY foxsports • November 7, 2009

Bynum has a strained right elbow after getting injured late in a victory at Houston on Wednesday, though he doesn't think it's serious. The Lakers' starting center is averaging 20 points and 10.6 rebounds in a strong start to his season.

Gasol hasn't played for the Lakers since straining his right hamstring in the preseason, although he holds out hope of playing Sunday against New Orleans. Lamar Odom has taken Gasol's starting spot in the defending champions' first six games.

Gasol missed the chance to play against his former team - as well as his brother, Marc, who started at center for the Grizzlies.
