The health concerns are mounting for Pau Gasol. The Spaniard has already missed a chunk of games due to tendinitis problems with his knees. Now just shortly after returning to action Pau is dealing with a new problem.
Though not considered to be as serious as his knee ailments, an MRI yesterday revealed plantar fascia in his right foot. In short he’s got soreness and swelling in his knees and right foot now too.
Gasol is listed as probable for Friday night’s game at Staples against the rival Portland Trailblazers. How this will affect Gasol’s production, the team and his potential trade value should Mitch Kupchak have to cross that bridge remains to be seen.
