    Chris Kaman will make his fifth start of the season Friday night in place of Gasol, who averages 14.7 points and 9.4 rebounds. Chris Kaman will start in place of Pau Gasol when the Los Angeles Lakers play the Utah Jazz on Friday, Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni said after shootaround Friday morning. Kaman filled in for Gasol against the Warriors and totaled 10 points, 17 rebounds and three blocks on 5-for-17 shooting from the field. "Like anything else, you're not 100 percent physically and you're going to have shorter times of energy and stuff like that," Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni said when asked about Gasol. "He'll get over it. He'll be fine." He is officially listed as day to day by the Lakers. According to veteran Richard Jefferson, the Jazz can’t afford to play less than their best against the shorthanded Lakers. He began feeling the effects of the illness about a week ago and sat out a 102-83 loss to Golden State last Saturday, the only game he's missed all season.
