The Lakers have won three out of four games on their Grammy road trip, giving fans of the Purple and Gold hope that the team can make a late surge into the postseason.

Unfortunately, injuries to Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol and Jordan Hill have decimated the team's depth, putting Los Angeles' playoff hopes in serious jeopardy.

Kobe Bryant recently urged Howard to play through the pain despite the risk of further injury, and it didn't take long for the big man to respond. 

NBA365 caught up with Howard to get his reaction, and you won't want to miss it. We also checked in with Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash to gather their thoughts on the All-Star center's recovery. 

Should Dwight play through his injury? Should he continue sitting out?
