Lakers forwards Pau Gasol and Luke Walton missed practice today because of injuries.

Gasol didn’t practice because of a strained right hamstring and Walton didn’t practice because of a sore back.

Gasol said his hamstring was hurting after practice Monday. ‘It was a little bit sorer today than yesterday,’ Gasol said. ‘I decided not to go.’


Walton had been talking about how good his training camp had been because he was healthy. Now comes this injury. ‘But I’ll be good to go soon,’ Walton said.

Both missed a lively scrimmage in front of season ticket holders at the team’s practice facility.
