Phil Jackson: Pau Gasol Is Weak and Sickly

Lakers forward Pau Gasol has struggled in the team’s last two defeats, something that hasn’t been lost on coach Phil Jackson.

"I really don’t like to talk about that aspect of a person’s game … other than the fact that he’s been weak and sickly," Jackson said Friday night.

Gasol, who is averaging 17.0 points and 11.1 rebounds this season, averaged 10.5 points and 7.5 rebounds in the two losses.

When asked to elaborate, Jackson said that Gasol has been feeling "under the weather" and he will have to monitor the All-Star’s playing time.
