What changed from Jan. 22 when D'Antoni said, "We got to go small, that's just the way it is," to now? ...
Jan. 22 was when D'Antoni decided to bring a healthy Gasol off the bench.
Two months later, he's saying Gasol will be back as a starter when he returns from his plantar fascia injury.
"I think Pau went up to another level with his play, so that changed," D'Antoni said after shootaround Sunday. "I think as you get to playoffs that experience and being able to perform under certain conditions is a big factor and he is more comfortable starting, so there’s a lot of things you got to think about and we’ll look at it. As soon as he gets healthy."
