Tests confirm Lakers’ Gasol has strained hamstring

EL SEGUNDO, California (AP)—Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol(notes) of Spain has a mild to moderate strained left hamstring and is doubtful for Tuesday night's game against Houston.

The Lakers said Monday that Gasol was examined by the team doctor and an ultrasound test and MRI showed the strain he sustained in Sunday night's win over the Dallas Mavericks. He started and played seven minutes before leaving the game.

Gasol is listed as day-to-day.

He missed the season's first 11 games with a strained right hamstring.
