Pau Gasol hopes to get clearance for running drills soon
 
Assuming he doesn’t experience any setbacks, Pau Gasol plans to seek medical clearance to participate in running drills once the Lakers returns Thursday from a two-day trip that includes stops in Oklahoma City (tonight) and New Orleans (Wednesday).

When the Lakers (30-30) play the Oklahoma City Thunder (43-16) tonight at Chesapeake Energy Arena, Gasol will have missed 12 games in the past month since tearing the plantar fascia of his right foot. Gasol traveled with the Lakers and spent time at the end of the team’s morning shootaround today with strength and conditioning coach Tim DiFrancesco performing various exercises that test his gluteal and neuro muscles.

[Lakers head coach Mike] D’Antoni said Pau Gasol could return as soon as Monday at Phoenix, and Gasol could be in the starting lineup against the Suns, too. The forward from Spain has been recovering from a torn plantar fascia in his right foot since early February. Gasol spent the last part of the shootaround working one-one-one against center Dwight Howard.

The additional pain Pau Gasol sensed in his right foot after playing a game of two-on-two Saturday will keep him sidelined both tonight against Sacramento and Monday at Phoenix.

Coach Mike D’Antoni hopes the three days before the Lakers play Friday against Washington will give Gasol enough time to heal the torn plantar fascia in his right foot, an injury that has kept him sidelined for 19 games. But Gasol declined to pencil a specific return date.

“I don’t want to put any date,” Gasol said, “so there are no disappointments or surprises.”
