OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol is expected to miss his third straight game with tendinitis in his knees.

Coach Mike D'Antoni said at the Lakers' shootaround that he hadn't received an official update from team doctors, but he took that to mean that Gasol is "not ready yet" for Friday night's game at Oklahoma City. D'Antoni says it "could be any day" that Gasol is ready to return.

Gasol was not on the court for the portion of the shootaround that was open to reporters.

D'Antoni also says he doesn't expect injured point guard Steve Nash to be back until at least the Lakers' next road trip, which starts Tuesday.

The Lakers host Utah on Sunday.
