Pau Gasol out Tuesday against Milwaukee Bucks

The Lakers said Pau Gasol , who has missed the past four games with a concussion, also will miss Tuesday's game against Milwaukee.

The NBA's concussion policy requires him to pass a series of health and cognitive tests to establish that the effects have passed. Sometimes effects linger, so no one should be surprised. The Lakers broke their six-game losing streak Sunday vs. Cleveland.

The Lakers face Milwaukee at home Tuesday and then get the Heat Thursday with Miami coming in on a road-road back-to-back. If Gasol gets back for Thursday and the Lakers can get another win Tuesday, they could enter the weekend on a legitimate win streak.

But for Tuesday, they'll have to take care of business against a pesky frontcourt featuring Larry Sanders, John Henson, and more.
