UEFA says the sanction was imposed for \"the setting off and throwing of fireworks and missiles, and a pitch invasion by a supporter.\" A Croatia fan was tackled by stewards after trying to reach coach Slaven Bilic following the 3-1 win last Sunday in Poznan, Poland. After Croatia led the match 2-1, Irelands kickoff in the Group C match was delayed while smoke from fireworks cleared at one end of the stadium packed with Croatia fans.

Howard has a torn labrum in his right shoulder, and Gasol has a concussion after taking an elbow in the face late in Sunday nights loss to Denver. Hill, a key backup to both starting big men, has a right hip injury. The three injuries are the latest blows for the Lakers (15-18), who still havent meshed despite a star-studded roster, a bulging payroll and an early-season coaching change. Los Angeles has lost three straight and four of five since beating the Knicks on Christmas, falling to 11th place in the Western Conference. \"The NBA is unforgiving, and nobody is feeling sorry for us,\" Los Angeles coach Mike DAntoni said. \"Theres 29 other teams that are happy, and weve got to do the best we can do. Its kind of weird coming to work thinking you have three centres, and all three of them are hurt on the same day.\" The Lakers biggest concern is Howard, who hurt his shoulder in last Fridays loss to the Clippers and aggravated it in Sundays loss to the Nuggets while grabbing a career high-tying 26 rebounds. The six-time All-Star centre said he wont need surgery, but hell sit out for at least a week before his injury is re-evaluated. \"It depends on how fast I heal up,\" said Howard, who had a bulky wrap on his shoulder Monday at the Lakers training complex. \"I was in pain (Sunday night), and the biggest thing right now is I have to make sure Im 100 per cent. I dont want to play with my shoulder weak. Id have a chance for more injuries. Ive got to let it heal up.\" After cancelling practice Monday, the Lakers announced Gasol and Howard are both out indefinitely. Hill will be examined by team doctors later Monday before getting a prognosis. When the Lakers open a stretch of four games in six days starting Tuesday in Houston, rookie Robert Sacre is likely to be their starting centre. The final pick in last Junes draft has been playing for the Lakers affiliate in the D-League. DAntoni will be forced to improvise with his three best post players sidelined from an already top-heavy roster. The coach said 6-foot-7 Metta World Peace could play centre at times as part of the small lineups hell be forced to use. \"Well go small a lot, and well just have to spread the floor and get things done,\" DAntoni said. \"Some guys are going to have to step up and put some superhuman effort into it. Well have some little guys guarding big guys, and well have to be quick. Well have to take advantage of other situations.\" He wont have much choice: The 7-foot Sacre and 6-foot-9 Antawn Jamison are his only players taller thaan World Peace, unless the Lakers sign a temporary big man.ddddddddddddLos Angeles cleared a roster spot by waiving rookie Darius Johnson-Odom on Monday, three days before his contract would have been guaranteed for the season. Although their wealth of problems can hardly be attributed to injuries, the Lakers havent been fully healthy for any significant stretch of the season. After Howard missed their first five preseason games while recovering from off-season back surgery, new point guard Steve Nash got a small fracture in his leg in their second game of the season, keeping the two-time NBA MVP out for seven weeks. Add in the difficulties of learning a new offence with no training camp for an older roster struggling to keep up with faster teams, and the preseason title contenders realize why theyre looking up at the likes of Golden State, Minnesota and the Pacific Division-leading Clippers in the standings. \"Its almost like -- whats that game where you pop one of those things in the head and another one pops up?\" DAntoni said. \"Whac-a-Mole? Thats what we seem to be doing right now.\" Gasol got a concussion and an injured nose when Denvers JaVale McGee accidentally clobbered him under the basket with 1:05 to play. The four-time All-Star 7-footer has been struggling both with plantar fasciitis and the difficulty of adapting his game to DAntonis offence, averaging just 12.2 points and 8.4 rebounds in a trying season. Hill had been struggling with a sprained right ankle and a herniated disc in his back even before injuring his hip Sunday. He has been a consistent contributor off the bench in his second season in Los Angeles, averaging 6.7 points and 5.7 rebounds. \"No one is going to feel sorry for us,\" said Nash, who is five assists shy of 10,000 for his career. \"Weve got to take the challenge, embrace it, and no matter how many lumps we take, you cant feel sorry for yourself. Youve got to keep battling, and if you keep battling, you give yourself a chance for good things to happen.\" The injuries were the most concrete news on yet another ridiculously busy day for the 16-time champions. Lakers great Magic Johnson launched yet another barrage of Twitter criticism of the franchise, while Howard and NBA scoring leader Kobe Bryant both flatly denied a report of friction between them, with Bryant tweeting a photo mocking the idea they had nearly come to blows. \"You feel like at some point, you hit rock-bottom, and the only place you can go is up,\" Bryant said. \"Its just been a tough year for everybody ... but when you go through a lot of adversity, it challenges you, and then its on you, whether or not you choose to fight, or whether you choose to run away from it. I think well choose to fight it.\" ' ' '
