EL SEGUNDO (CBSLA.com) — Three players with the Los Angeles Lakers – including two of the team’s superstars – were injured in Sunday’s loss to the Denver Nuggets, team doctors said Monday.

Dwight Howard, who originally injured his right shoulder Friday night against the Clippers and re-aggravated his shoulder last night, was examined today by team doctor Steve Lombardo. An MRI exam revealed that he has a torn labrum and will be out indefinitely; he will travel with the team this week to Houston and San Antonio and will receive treatment from the team’s training staff. He will be re-examined in a week.

Pau Gasol, who suffered a blow to the face in the fourth quarter of last night’s game, was examined by neurologist Dr. Vern Williams. Tests determined that he has a concussion. He will not travel with the team, and will be out indefinitely.

Jordan Hill suffered an injury to his right hip in last night’s game and will be examined today by Dr. Lombardo.

Results of the examination will be released later this afternoon.
