Coach Mike D'Antoni said the forward/center would go through a more strenuous workout later in the day, followed by additional testing. If he is cleared, Gasol would be available Thursday night when the Lakers host the Miami Heat.
D'Antoni said he wasn't sure whether he would need to ease the veteran back into the lineup. Earl Clark has started two games in Gasol's absence, impressing D'Antoni with his energy, athleticism and versatility.
The Lakers have won two straight games but will get a more challenging opponent in the Heat (24-12).
The Lakers are three games behind the eighth-place Portland Trail Blazers in the Western Conference standings.ALSO:
