Lakers ready for Texas trip

January 11, 2010 |  1:27 pm

Pau The Lakers know they will have their hands full with a two-game trip through Texas.

They begin the trip with a game in San Antonio on Tuesday night at the AT&T Center. It's the first time the Lakers and Spurs have played this season.

Then the Lakers play the Mavericks in Dallas on Wednesday night in a back-to-back game. The Lakers and Mavericks have played twice this season, both games at Staples Center, ending in a split.

The Lakers are listing Pau Gasol, who has been out with a strained left hamstring, doubtful for the Spurs' game.

Gasol worked out on the treadmill but didn't practice. Gasol is going on the trip.

Luke Walton practiced and looked pretty good.

Ron Artest, who experienced some dizziness after a fall on the court during Sunday night's game, practiced on Monday.
