Earlier this summer, Pau Gasol underwent surgery on both of his knees, and he is finally able to run. However, he is only running on grass.
This evening I’m going to continue getting better. Weight room workout and then running on grass. Every day one more step forward.

After having an injury-riddled season, Gasol underwent surgery and also received stem cell injections to help speed up the rebuilding of his knee tissues.
If Gasol doesn’t feel any discomfort, he is going to steadily increase the amount of work he does. His main goal is to be ready for the Lakers opening game against the Los Angeles Clippers.
