Pau Gasol Has Plantar Fasciitis

The Los Angeles Lakers are listing Pau Gasol as probable for tonight’s game against the visiting Portland Trailblazers. Gasol has been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis on his right foot. More from the LA Daily News: “Gasol didn’t report any signs of pain following the Lakers’ 126-114 loss Wednesday to the Denver Nuggets. But the Lakers forward had already dealt with knee tendinitis since the beginning of training camp, an injury that eventually sidelined him for eight consecutive games. Gasol has averaged 12.75 points on 42.2 percent shooting, 8.25 rebounds and 5.5 assists in the past four games since his return. The Lakers were given the day off of practice, but Gasol spent part of that time getting examined by foot specialist Dr. Kenneth Jung. It’s currently unclear contributed to Gasol’s plantar fasciitis, an inflammation of a tendon within the sole of the foot. Recently, Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni has slotted Metta World Peace and Jordan Hill as the primary backup power forwards. Based on his recent rotations, it’s likely World Peace would get the starting nod should Gasol need to sit out.”

    Have the Lakers have been flogging the Gimp’s feet whenever the team loses?

    the nba needs to have European style loan signings. imagine pau for bargnani switch for 1 year – if it works out, trade options can be explored. if not, players go back to original teams. of course salary cap considerations need to be hashed out, but why not have this type of flexibility in the nba that has been tried and tested in other sports leagues?
