The Lakers will be missing several of their big men when they play the Rockets on Tuesday.

In Sunday's loss to the Nuggets, Dwight Howard aggravated his shoulder injury. MRI results on Monday revealed a torn labrum. The Lakers announced he'll miss at least a week.

Meanwhile, Pau Gasol cut the bridge on his nose during the same game. It was thought on Sunday night that he would be okay to play on Tuesday against the Rockets, but on Monday, the Lakers announced he'll be out with a concussion.

Backup center Jordan Hill will also miss Tuesday's game. The former Rocket injured his hip in Sunday's game.
