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.
