Just when it appeared the Los Angeles Lakers could turn their horrible season around more bad news for Kobe and the gang. Lakers center Dwight Howard had a MRI on his shoulder and it revealed that Howard has a torn shoulder (torn labrum). Right now the Lakers are saying Howard is out a week but not true time table can be made.
Lakers forward Pau Gasol is also out indefinitely having suffered a concussion during a fourth quarter hit to the face sunday night against the Denver Nuggets.
The Lakers are currently 15-18 and are in 11th place in the Western conference.
