BEIJING, Feb. 7 (Xinhuanet) -- The Lakers has won three consecutive road games under Mike D'Antoni but now the team will have to contend with injuries to its members Pau Gasol, Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant.
The team has won six of the last seven, however, it may suffer in the later games.
Gasol was injured in the Lakers' 92-83 win vs. the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center on Tuesday and had an MRI on the foot in Boston Wednesday.
The Lakers announced it would issue the update information after examined on Thursday.
The team fears Gasol could be sidelined four to six weeks. And Bryant told everyone the last thing he did before taking the court against the Nets was to remove an ice bag from his elbow.
Howard has missed the past three games because of a torn labrum in his shoulder, aggravating an injury he initially suffered earlier this season.
The Lakers are hopeful Gasol's injury will prompt Howard to return "sooner than later," a team source told ESPNLosAngeles.com.
"We don't have time for (Howard's shoulder) to heal," Bryant said. "We need some urgency."
