Lakers forward Pau Gasol underwent a sonogram that showed a possible tear in his right hamstring, and he is not expected to play on the team’s upcoming two-game road trip, the team said.

Gasol also had a more complex MRI exam today on his hamstring, and those results will be known by Tuesday.


Gasol is traveling with the Lakers for their games in Oklahoma City on Tuesday and in Houston on Wednesday but will not play. ‘We don’t expect him to play on this trip,’ Lakers spokesman John Black said.

Gasol, a two-time All-Star, has missed all three of the Lakers’ regular season games and their last six exhibition games.
