Pau Gasol health update (Feb. 19)
How optimistic does Gasol feel that he could return before the season ends?
“I hope,” Gasol said. “It’s a thing you take one day at a time and you go with the symptoms and see how well they go and quick the body is able to heal with a simple injury. It varies from different individuals.”
Gasol has tweeted that he’s started his day for the past two weeks since his injury rehabbing his right foot with a contrast footbath, which helps activate the circulation and flush out the inflammation. Gasol has gone through this process in both cold and hot temperatures. Gasol also revealed on Twitter that he’s worn a protective boot at times, which helps get rid of the swelling caused by the facia’s tear.
