Gasol has partial tear of plantar fascia & is out atleast 6weeks
 
Lakers forward Pau Gasol is sidelined indefinitely after sustaining a tear in the bottom of his right foot Tuesday against the Brooklyn Nets.

Gasol planned to fly back to Los Angeles on Thursday for further medical evaluation. The Lakers declined to release a timetable for his return after an MRI exam in Boston revealed a torn plantar fascia Wednesday.

"I'm hoping to recover asap so I can be back with the team and keep fighting until the end of the season. #GoLakers #AlwaysPositive," Gasol wrote Wednesday on his Twitter account.

Gasol was more nervous than resolute a day earlier about his injury.

Sorry to hear that but.........we should've already traded him.

Yeah every time he comes back something happens. Trading him shows we're trying to keep Dwight, and I believe that when the CBA fully kicks in, we need to choose one or the other.

I like how Pau has been playing, and as starting center he's been very effective lately, but I don't see much juice left in him.

Does anyone think, based on his history that Pau will be back in 6 weeks?
I don't think we'll see him on the court for at least 2 months.

Yeah I don't think so either, unless he decides to play through the pain. He's a big man, takes a little while longer to heal up for those freaks of nature lol.

I keep hearing the type of tear he has would have been better if it tore all the way and not just partially.

Whatever the case may be, this won't exactly brighten Pau's future in basketball.
