Pau Gasol was back in the Lakers' starting lineup. "Big news," he said sarcastically. "Headlines. Exciting." Please excuse his curbed enthusiasm. His starting gig might last only one game. Gasol got the call because Dwight Howard flew back to Los Angeles to have a minor procedure on his right shoulder. Howard was listed as day to day by the Lakers and planned to return to the team in time for Sunday's game in Detroit.
