Gasol's starting spot
By Nick Borges
Earl Clark is playing well as the starting power forward, however he will return to a bench role once Pau Gasol, out with concussion symptoms, is given the go ahead to return to the active roster.
"(Bringing Gasol off the bench) would be tough," head coach Mike D'Antoni told ESPNLosAngeles.com. "We'll see (how) everything kind of plays out the way it is, but that's not my intention right now."
Clark averaged 15.0 points, 10.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.0 blocks prior to Tuesday's game. Against the Bucks he scored six points and grabbed nine rebounds.
Gasol is set to meet with a neurologist on Wednesday and he might play on Thursday when the Heat come to Staples Center.
